barrel against the abutment near the barrel chamber. This compression provides the motive power for forward motion of the breechblock-slide. The slide is machined in the rear breech section to permit it to thrust back and ride over the hammer. The hammer rotating on its pin thrusts its shaft (or strut) down, thereby compressing the mainspring mounted around it. The sear catches and holds the hammer at full cock. The magazine spring forces a cartridge up in line for feeding as the slide is pulled back far enough to clear the top of the magazine.
