    I was having a little trouble with my 995 ejecting the spent casings so I decided to take it apart and see if I could fix it. While I was working on it I got to thinking about how the entire mechanism worked. And realized that I had some sort of idea but was not completely sure about it. Anyway, what I want to know is: Can anyone tell me how the 995 operates and what makes it cycle a new cartridge into the chamber?

    Oh yes, I did fix the problem. That may be the subject of another post.

    The 995 is a Blowback firearm. Here is a good link that explains how the Blowback system works (although the 995 is only a semi-auto). This should give you a general knowledge of whats going on inside...
