Semi Automatic Action
rating: 0+x

Basic Information

Semi Automatic Action is the mode of operation for a firearm by which, once the weapon is cocked a single pull of the trigger fires one round of ammunition and then re-cocks the action and loads a new round from the magazine.

This is the action of the self loader pistol and the self-loading rifle and is common amongst modern artillery and other cannon - although some of these are unable to self load and merely recycle to an open breech.
