can someone explain me this?

Hi, This is my first post. I just wanted to share with you this amazing patent drawing that I found. It looks very sophisticated, how the hell does this thing from 1899 work? Bruce, I admire your work, but can you tell why no modern custom version of this mechanism can be seen around? Thanks

Thanks for your first post on Knifedogs. I enjoy mechanisms and would like to take a better look at this one. Unfortunately the picture is very small.
Maybe somebody here has the smarts to blow it up and repost it for us to see.

The link lets me see what it is. A combined 22 cal pistol and folding knife. A very compact unit and very cool to have I bet. I doubt there are many in the world because I googled it and didn't come up with anything at all. It looks difficult to make as its so small and I'm afraid I'd shoot a finger off before I got it tuned up.
Thanks for the conversation and link. What else do you have to show here? I love this stuff.
