The detachable box magazine takes seven rounds. The frame incorporates the trigger guard. The cocking slide takes up the whole of the top of the weapon. Semi-automatic- with recoil action. Rounds are thrust up into the breech by the magazine spring when the action is to the rear. After cocking for the first round- the weapon is automatically reloaded.
