    If you like Glocks or if you just like to see how an auto pistol works, the animation below will be of interest to you. Explore the site because there is more than just what appears on the first screen.

    That is pretty cool, especially if you make sure that everything is transparent.

    Thanks for the link dg and welcome to the forum.

    Alright, I have a question about that Glock/all glocks?. Did any of you notice that the firing pin moved backwards as the trigger was pulled???

    What is up with that? For some reason I just picture the pin as ready to go, kind of like the wolf ready to pounce on the sheeep.

    In response to the question from Marlin T:

    This explanation is compliments of “dosei” on http://glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=536764&highlight=striker movement

    (Racking the slide on a Glock, puts)
    Most people call the firing pin on a Glock a striker because it is a combination of a firing pin and an extension.

    What you saw in the animated illustration in the first post results in this (scroll down to the active screen):

    The Glock in the video is the full auto G18 9mm. It is legal in the U.S. only if you are a LEO, military, have a Class III license, or bought it before 1985 (and can prove it).

    I'll find the site - but STI has a similar 1911 animation.
