Abstract : A hydraulic spring combination to replace a long spring having surging characteristics in high velocity application with reciprocating parts in automatic and semiautomatic weapons. On recoil a rod penetrates a fluid chamber, causing a piston to move against a shorter spring at a slower velocity proportional to the ratio of rod cross-sectional area to the cross-sectional area. The shorter spring returns the piston to move the rod hydraulically to return the reciprocating parts to battery position. (Author)
