  • Patent number: 9395142
    Abstract: A bow having a firing assembly that allows multiple projectiles in a clip to be selectively fired by a bow string, the bow having a bow string to produce the launching force to launch the projectiles along a projectile track, a firing assembly partially contained in the clip, the clip having an outer shell with a clip opening and a biased projectile follower to urge the projectiles toward the clip opening, the bow further including a receiver having a receiver opening to selectively operably receive the clip, the clip having a firing portion with at least one projection configured to support the bow string to fire the bow, the firing assembly further including a trigger assembly joined relative to the receiver and having a firing finger configured to urge the bow string off of the at least one projection and launch a projectile.

  • Patent number: 9341422
    Abstract: An archery bow for selectively firing multiple projectiles one at a time and having riser with first and second ends and limb arrangements fixed relative thereto with a bow string is joined therebetween, the bow having a drum housing and a selectively rotatable drum rotatably secured relative to the housing, the drum being rotatable about a drum axis and having a projectile openings circumferentially spaced about the drum axis, each of the projectile openings shaped to receive a projectile wherein a plurality of projectiles can be secured in the drum at one time, one of the projectile openings being in a firing position and supporting a projectile to be fired by the bow, the remaining projectile openings being spaced from the firing position to reduce interference with the projectile to be fired, the drum having a rotation mechanism to rotate each of openings into the firing position individually, the bow further including a shooting force mechanism to selectively propel the projectiles.
