General Operation

The Beretta 87 Target pistol is a semiautomatic firearm of the blow-back type. Upon firing, the pressure developed by the combustion gases recoils the slide which, during its rearward movement, extracts and ejects the fired cartridge case, cocks the hammer and activates the recoil spring. The slide will then automatically move forward towards the closed position, feeding the next cartridge from the magazine into the chamber.

The slide is designed to stay open after the last round has been fired and ejected.
