the piston and the cylinder varies during recoil; by this

means an approximately constant pressure is maintained

in the buffer throughout the stroke, the front end of the piston

rod is fired to the front of the spring case, the rear

end is bored for the reception of the controlling plunger

which by displacing the liquid inside the piston rod, brings

the gun gently to rest when returning to the firing position. 


A filling hole, closed by a plug with a chain is provided

at the rear end of the cylinder 


The running out springs surround the hydraulic buffer

and are enclosed in a steel case which is screwed

into the cradle above the gun, they consist of two sets

inner and outer which are held under initial compression

each set is divided into four sections separated by.

parting plates, the inner and outer are also separated

longitudinally by an inner case


For the better detection of a leak in the gland, holes are

bored in the spring cases four holes near the rear

end of the inner spring case and two holes underneath
