Jericho 941 - 9x19



The Jericho 941 is s short recoil modified Browing linkless delayed firearm in 9x19 and .41AE, though this specimen only has the 9x19 barrel and magazine. When the trigger is pulled, the transfer bar that spans both sides of the magazine well pulls the lower legs of the sear forward, pivoting it on its pin, disengaging it from the hammer. The energy from the round fired moves the slide and barrel rear as a group. As the barrel moves to the rear, the lug on the bottom engages the slide stop pin, pulling the barrel down and disenging the lugs on the top of the barrel from the cuts in the top of the slide, unlocking the barrel and allowing the slide to fully recoil, ejecting the spent casing. At the same time, the ramped surface on the bottom of the slide pushes the transfer bar downward where it contacts at its raised portions closest to the rear, disconnecting it from the sear until the trigger is reset allowing the recoil of the slide to cock the hammer. When the slide has fully recoiled, it is forced forward by the recoil spring, the bottom lug of the barrel again contacting the slide stop, forcing it up and back into battery. The Jericho 941, upon engaging the safety, extends a pin from the slide making contact with the top of the sear, dropping the hammer. At the same time, the safety rotates into the angular cut in the firing pin, immobilizing it. Unlike other small arms of the era, there is no firing pin safety in the conventional sense. Another unique feature of the Jericho 941 is the arrangement of the frame and slide rails, conventionally the slide would fit over rails protruding from the frame, in theis case, however, the rails on the slide fit inside grooves that run the full length of the slide.
