Not quite.

You need to open the breech, load a new projectile by pushing the plunger, then close the breech again. Since this is a necessary action, the designer has cleverly made it also cock the hammer, killing two birds with one stone.

Second, after the hammer strike, it will stay in the position that pushes open the gas valve causing the gase in the reservoir to empty, wasting most of the gas. this problem, however can be overcomed by using a spring that is slightly shorter than the length of the hammer housing, so the hammer strike the valve with its momentun, and is pushed back afterwards by the valve.


That is pretty much how I drew it. In my diagram, the system is at rest, the spring is at full extension and not touching the valve.

In short, I stand by my original interpretation of the mechanism :)
