BACKGROUND OF THE PRESENT INVENTION

Field of Invention

The present invention relates to a butt structure for a toy gun, and more particularly to a butt structure capable of facilitating backward removal of the rear part of the butt.

Description of Related Arts

In addition to the exterior design simulation for real guns, the structure of the toy guns are also designed to be almost the same as real guns in order to gain consumers' fondness for toy guns. However, the power source of the toy guns is different from that of the real guns after all, therefore, some structural designs are still different from the real guns, and this is inevitable.

For example, please see FIG. 1, a conventional butt structure for a toy gun is shown and comprises: a butt body 10, a rear part 20, two guide rods 30 and a press locking device 40. The butt body 10 is axially connected to the rear end of a gun body 50, as shown in FIG. 2. As shown in FIGS. 3 and 4, the guide rods 30 have their rear ends connected (by screw means for example) to the rear part 20, so that the guide rods 30 and the rear part 20 can move back and forth in a synchronous manner. Meanwhile, the guide rods 30 are inserted forward at two sides of the butt body 10, and the rear part 20 is sleeved onto the rear end of the butt body 10 (as shown in FIG. 1). Besides, each of the guide rods 30 is provided with a plurality of cavities 301, and each of the cavities 301 has two opposite straight lateral surfaces 302. The press locking device 40 is pivotally connected to the butt body 10 and includes a press portion 401 and an engaging portion 402. When the press portion 401 is not pressed, the engaging portion 402 of the press locking device 40 can be engaged with any of the cavities 301 (as shown in FIGS. 5 and 6) and stopped against the two opposite straight lateral surfaces 302, so that the rear part 20 is stopped from moving back and forth along with the guide rods 30. When the press portion 401 is pressed (as shown in FIGS. 7 and 8), the engaging portion 402 will be disengaged from the cavities 301, so that the rear part 20 can be moved back and forth along with the guide rods 30, and this is the method and structure for adjusting the rear part 20. A pin 303 (as shown in FIG. 4) is inserted in the front end of one of the two guide rods 30, the butt body 10 is provided with a guide groove 101 which is located along the movement path of the pin 303. When pressing the press portion 401 to adjust the position of the rear part 20, the pin 303 will slide within the guide groove 101 (as shown in FIG. 8), and the pin 303 is stopped against the end of the guide groove 101 to prevent the disengagement of the guide rods 30 and the rear part 20, and this is the design for preventing disengagement of the rear part 20. However, the interior of the butt body 10 is provided for storage of wire and battery, and every time when the battery needs to be replaced, it has to remove the pin 303 and press the press portion 401, then the rear part 20 and the guide rods 30 can be removed to replace the battery from the rear end of the butt body 10, and the pin 303 has to be reinserted back to its original position after battery replacement.

The present invention has arisen to mitigate and/or obviate the afore-described disadvantages.

SUMMARY OF THE PRESENT INVENTION

Based on the above disadvantages, the problem to be solved by the present invention is how to provide an effective and improved structure which is not only capable of preventing the rear part of the butt from being pulled out backwards, but also allowing for easy removable of the rear part.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

The present invention will be clearer from the following description when viewed together with the accompanying drawings, which show, for purpose of illustrations only, the preferred embodiment in accordance with the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 9, a butt structure A for a toy gun in accordance with the present invention comprises: a butt body 1, a rear part 2, two guide rods 3 and a press locking device 4.

The butt body 1 is axially connected to a rear end of a gun body 5 (as shown in FIG. 10), as further shown in FIGS. 9 and 12, a T-shaped slot 11 is formed in a bottom surface of the butt body 1, at least two insertion holes 12 are formed on two lateral surfaces of the butt body 1, and one of the insertion holes 12 is located adjacent to the T-shaped slot 11.

The rear part 2 is located behind the butt body 1, as shown in FIGS. 11 and 12, and a cover 21 is located above the rear part 2.

The guide rods 3 have their rear ends connected (by screw means for example) to the rear part 2, so that the rear part 2 can move together with the guide rods 3. The two guide rods 3 are inserted forward into the insertion holes 12 at two sides of the butt body 1, and the rear part 2 is sleeved onto a rear end of the butt body 1. Each of the guide rods 3 is provided with a plurality of cavities 3A (as shown in FIGS. 9 and 12), and the cavities 3A of each of the two guide rods 3 include one front cavity 31 and at least two rear cavities 32. Each of the front cavities 31 is provided with a hook portion 311 on an inner front surface thereof, each of the rear cavities 32 is provided with a front slanting surface 321 on an inner front surface thereof, and each of the front cavities 31 and the rear cavities 32 includes a straight inner rear surface 33.

The press locking device 4 includes a press portion 41 at one end thereof, and two extension arms 42 extending from two lateral sides of another end of the press locking device 4. Each of the extension arms 42 is provided with an engaging end 43 at a top end thereof (as shown in FIGS. 11 and 12). Each of the engaging ends 43 is provided with a front protrusion 431 at a front surface thereof and a right-angle portion 432 at a rear surface thereof. The press locking device 4 is pivotally disposed in the T-shaped slot 11 of the butt body 1 by a pin 44, and a spring 45 is disposed between the press portion 41 and the butt body 1. When the spring 45 is not pressed, the engaging ends 43 can be inserted into the insertion holes 12 beside the T-shaped slot 11 of the butt body 1.

According to the abovementioned structure, when the press portion 41 is not pressed, the engaging ends 43 can be engaged with any of the cavities 3A because of the elastic force of the spring 45, and the right-angle portion 432 is stopped against the straight inner rear surface 33 of the front cavity 31 or the rear cavities 32, so that the rear part 2 is unable to move along with the guide rods 3 (as shown in FIG. 13), and thus fixed after moving forward. When the press portion 41 is pressed, the engaging ends 43 of the press locking device 4 will be disengaged from the cavities 3A (the front cavity 31 or the rear cavities 32), so that the rear part 2 can be moved together with the two guide rods 3 (as shown in FIG. 14). When the press portion 41 is not pressed, and the guide rods 3 are moved to the hook portions 311 of the front cavities 31 and the front protrusions 431 of the engaging ends 43, at this moment, the hook portions 311 are engaged with the front protrusions 431, so that the rear part 2 and the two guide rods 3 are fixed and unable to move back and forth (as shown in FIG. 15). Hence, operating the press locking device 4 can prevent the rear part 2 and the guide rods 3 from moving backward and causing disengagement. To remove the rear part 2 and the guide rods 3, what the user only needs to do is to press the press portion 41 to release the engaging ends 43 from the cavities 3A (the front cavities 31 or the rear cavities 32), and then the rear part 2 and the guide rods 3 can be removed by being pulled backward, which can also be achieved by operating the press locking device 4.

Furthermore, even when the press portion 41 is not pressed, each of the rear cavities 32 is provided with the front slanting surface 321, when the engaging ends 43 are engaged in the rear cavities 32, the guide rods 3 can still be moved backward by using the front slanting surfaces 321 to slide over the front protrusions 431 of the engaging ends 43, and as a result, the rear part 2 and the guide rods 3 can still be moved backward (as shown in FIG. 16).

It can be learned from the above description that due to the fact that each of the front cavities 31 is provided with the hook portion 311 on an inner front surface thereof, and each of the engaging ends 43 is provided with the front protrusion 431 at a front surface thereof, when the guide rods 3 are moved backward to the position where the hook portions 311 are engaged with the front protrusions 431 by operating the press portion 41 of the press locking device 4, the rear part 2 and the guide rods 3 can be fixed from moving backward (as shown in FIG. 15), namely, the rear part 2 and the guide rods 3 can be prevented from being pulled out backwards. To remove the rear part 2 and the guide rods 3 by pulling them backward, the user can still operate the press portion 41 of the press locking device 4 to release the engaging ends 43 from the cavities 3A (as shown in FIG. 14). Namely, simply operating the press locking device 4 can both prevent the rear part 2 and the guide rods 3 from being pulled out backwards and allow the rear part 2 and the guide rods 3 to be removed to facilitate battery replacement. Therefore, the invention is capable of effectively solving the disadvantages of the existing gun butt structure.

While we have shown and described various embodiments in accordance with the present invention, it is clear to those skilled in the art that further embodiments may be made without departing from the scope of the present invention.
