Alright, so I know nothing about guns. Can someone explain exactly what's happening here?
User avatar #11 to #6 - captfuckhead (12/16/2012) [-]
when you pull the trigger, the hammer is released and it slams forward, hitting the firing pin. At the base of the cartridge there is a primer which contains shock-sensitive explosive(means it goes boom if you hit it hard enough). This ignites the gunpowder and the rapidly expanding gasses propel the bullet forward. Some of these gasses are bled off through a gas port which push a piston in the opposite direction of the bullet, which in turn pushes the bolt back. The bolt recocks the hammer(locking it back in place to be released again), and on the end of its rearward travel, an ejector flicks the spent cartridge out and away. The bolt, under tension from the recoil spring, then travels forward, stripping a round out of the magazine and pushing it into the chamber. The bolt the turns slightly, locking it into position and it's ready to go again.

On full-auto weapons there's nothing holding the hammer back so it slams back forward to continue this cycle until you release the trigger or you run out of ammo. On semi-auto weapons the trigger automatically resets, requiring one trigger pull per shot, preventing you from going spray-and-pray on the local populace(or so the theory goes)

It's funny how we're posting in a channel about guns right after a big incident in Connecticut involving guns.

Although I'm not at all into weapons, I have to lift my hat for the beauty of the mechanism of gas-operated rifles...

I ******* love AK's. My dad has a Norinco Type-56 that was converted to semi auto and imported to the US from China. It's over 20 years old, has thousands of rounds through it. Personally I've put a good amount of rounds through it. And that bitch still works flawlessly.

Good lord, guns are complicated. Makes me wonder how people figure out how to make this kind of stuff. I guess leaving a guy alone in a room with metal parts long enough, he'll make a weapon out of it.

I always wondered what shot the mechanism back to chamber another round, I didn't know that it was force of the actual bullet sending it back.
