STANDARD EQUIPMENT - Pistol box (tight closing box for transport and safe helping, with locking facility)- Spare magazine- Cleaning rod with wad holder- Cleaning brush- Loading support  FUNCTION OF THE WAEPON 1) State of the weapon: loaded , i.e., a round in the barrel, firing pin (5) partially tensioned andsecured, trigger (26), in the foremost position. the trigger safety integrated in the trigger is actuatedwith the trigger finger in order to pull the trigger all the way.2) When the trigger slack is taken up to the first pressure point (travel 5mm) the weapon is releasedfrom safety, i.e. the trigger bar lies behind the safety ramp, the firing pin is under tension. As thetrigger is pulled further back, the trigger bar releases the firing pin by means of the connector (24).The recoil impulse moves the slide (1) backwards. After about 3mm movement to the rear, thelocking action between the barrel (2) and the slide (1) will be released, the barrel swings downwardsover the locking block (22) and is retained in this position. The slide moves back into its finalposition on its own. During this return travel the cartridge is pulled out of the barrel by the extractor(11), and is then thrown out to the right via the ejector (23). The ramp in the slide rails actuates theconnector and separates it from the trigger bar. This causes the trigger bar to be raised by thetrigger spring (25) and to be brought back into the path of the firing pin nose.3) The recoil spring now brings the slide forwards.And this happens: - The trigger bar is pushed onto the safety ramp by the firing pin, - The firing pin safety is brought onto engagement - The firing pin is put under partial tension - A round is passed out of the magazine, and - The barrel is locked with the slideThe weapon is again secured and ready to fire After the last round has been fired, the slide willbe held in the open position by the slide stop lever (27).
