Abstract : This invention relates to thrusters of the type wherein a piston, coupled to a load device, is moved in a cylinder by gas pressure resulting from the firing of an explosive cartridge. It provides an improved thruster including means whereby the cartridge is firmly seated at the time it is fired and the cartridge case is thereafter used to unlock the piston from the cylinder.
