British Besa Machine Gun

Also during the forward movement, the piston extension acts on the lower arm of the feed lever moving the upper arm and the feed pawl over to the right permitting the feed pawl to be depressed by the belt and cartridge and engage in the link of the third round in the belt.

The retaining pawl is engaged behind the link of the cartridge just stripped into the firing chamber and holds the belt stationary during the movement.
