The Definition of Long Recoil
A semi-automatic pistol in which the barrel and breechblock are locked together for the full distance of rearward recoil travel,
after which the barrel returns forward, while the breechblock is held back. After the barrel has fully returned,
the breechblock is released to fly forward, chambering a fresh round in the process.
