Light Machine Firearm Carl Pelo Original Patent Lithograph 1932
On this original lithograph print from 1932 (includes original specification sheet), Carl Pelo patented improvements in light machine guns. Captain Carl Pelo of the Finnish Army was involved in arms design for twenty or thirty years (including a stint as technical manager of the Sako factory in the 1930s) and produced several prototype rifle designs. His early guns were long recoil actions, but the final one (which came the closest to adoption) was a short recoil action with flapper locks similar to the Russian Degtyarev system.
All patent lithographs sold by Maymont Group are 100% ORIGINAL.
These documents are NOT reproductions or posters (patent art).
These are the original lithographs found in books obtained from the Patent and Trademark Office directly.
In the 1800's and early 1900's, inventors would submit a detailed drawing of the invention and/or improvements to the patent and trademark office. Once received and if approved, the Patent office would then send a letter of confirmation to the inventor and begin to take that drawing and etch it into stone in order to create and print this linen-backed lithograph. These documents are the original hard copies that were created by the patent office's artists, and act as patent examiner reference material. With that being said, these are 100% original and are the only physical copies in existence.
