Firing Mechanism: When the weapon is cocked the chambers rotate and place a bullet in front of a firing pin. The firing pin on a hammer then moves forward upon release of the trigger to detonate the charge in the round’s casing. As the pressure from the explosion forces the round out the front of the weapon. Some of the gas is diverted from the barrel backwards to re-cock the weapon and chamber another round. The weapon can also be manually cocked by simply pulling back the hammer.
