As long as this pivot lies below the axis of the pressure thrust (exactly that of the bore's axis), the toggle joint is forced downward against the floor of the pistol's frame.
The toggle joint then continues upward, as a result of the rearward momentum imparted to it by the barrel and barrel extension group, until the reciprocating components arc halted by a stop on the frame or by the abutment of a lug on the rear toggle-link against the standing breech.
When the gun is fired, the two components of the toggle joint of the locking block are in line with the barrel, so that the rearward thrust of the cartridge against the breechblock is transmitted through the toggle to the frame attached to the barrel.
segments of the locking block's toggle joint are in alignment with the barrel and as a consequence, the thrust of the cartridge against the breechblock is translated through the toggle joint to the sliding frame attached to the barrel and thus the recoil momentum generated by the propellant gases inside the cartridge case drive the barrel, sliding frame and breech mechanism to the rear, all locked together.
