guide block, when the striker is free to go forward with

momentum due to the energy stored up in the compressed

main spring and detonates the percussion primer of

the cartridge


The firing lever is returned to the firing by means of the

guide for spring


The front end of the firing pin in the striker is withdrawn 

within the firing hole bush by means of a rebound block

in the striker, which engages a recess in the breech screw

for its reception


A loop is provided on the lower part of the trigger for

the attachment of a firing lanyard if required


A safety catch with flat spring is fitted to the striker

guide block for retaining the striker in the uncocked

position thus admitting of the gun being travelled with

a cartridge in the bore
