HOW YOUR Straltl? WORKS 



Your ^IlmIIIi uses a Gas Delayed Straight Blowback Recoil System 
and a Striker Firing mechanism. Tha Gas Delayed Straight Bfowback 
Recoil System uses a Gas Piston operating within a Gas Cylinder located 
underneath the Barrel inside the Barrel Support, Upon firing the round, 
the excess gas present in the Barrel, is released through a Gas Piston 
Hole localed directly in front ot the Chamber. This re-routed gas expands 
within the Piston Cylinder and works against the Gas Piston thus pushing 
the Slide (onward in the same direction as the bullet accelerating down 
the Barrel. Due to this forward force acting on the Slide, the Breech will 
remain closed during tiring ot your §>iraitii.On the recoil stroke, 
commencing as soon as the bullet leaves the Barrel, the Gas Piston 
moves past the Gas Port Hole, trapping air within the Gas Cylinder. The 
trapped air, within the Gas Cylinder, then works as a shock absorbing air- 
cushion and now minimizes Ihe recoil. This system lends itself to the use 
of a stationary Barrel which provides your S-UalUt with a high level ot 
accuracy. The Striker Firing mechanism on your strait!) is neither a 
double action nor a single action firing system. The pistol has 10 be 
cocked by pulling the Slide towards the rear until the Striker Firing 
mechanism engages. Your (*U';ilt[i pistol is now in a halt-cocked 
position. By squeezing the Trigger, the Striker is pushed back further 
towards the rear of the pistol until it reaches a position where the Sear 
releases the Striker. The Slide recoiling will reset Ihe mechanism in the 
halt-cock mode Now for firing the next round, the Trigger has to be 
squeezed once again in order to push the Striker to the rear of Ihe pistol 
until it releases. This ensures a constant Trigger pull for every 
subsequent round, A combination of the above mentioned mechanisms, 
enables you to have a compact and light-weight Pistol in 9mm 
parabelium or .40 S&W with light recoil and stationary Barrel. 



USING THE SAFETY LEVER

Do not lubricate the Gas Piston Hole. Oil will cause fouling problems in the 
operation of the Gas Piston. You may want to place a light film of oil on the 
Gas Piston, Breech Face and Barrel only. Avoid using too much oil. Dirt and 
dust are attracted to heavily lubricated surfaces. This will form a grit over time. 
The Stainless Steel of the Slide is setf-lubrtcating and does not require heavy 
lubricant or rust preventative.

are very caustic. 

To clean the Gas Piston Chamber, brush the Gas Piston Chamber with a high 
quality .30 diameter cleaning brush and lead/powder solvent or a 0.310 
diameter reamer to remove all lead and powder residue. Wipe off all 
lead/powder solvefit with a suitable cleaning patch. Whatever lead/powder
