When the gun recoils on firing it draws the

buffer cylinder with it to the rear, the liquid in the cylinder

in passing from front of piston to its opposite side is forced

through grooves in the cylinder, which owing to there [sic] shape

gradually diminish the space for the flow of the liquid

and brings the gun to rest, meanwhile the running out springs

have been further compressed, there [sic] subsequent expansion

causes the gun to return to the firing position, and in doing

so the controlling plunger displaced the liquid in the rear.
