Pictured at left is a field-stripped M1895. The ejector rod (arrow) screws into the rear of the frame and keeps the cylinder pin in place.
Grip panels attach to the frame with screws on the inside of the frame; the backstrap has a wood insert to help provide a better grip. It uses a flat-spring main spring for action operation.
The elongated firing pin is needed because the cylinder moves forward to mate up with the forcing cone. This unusual design provides a smaller cylinder gap, which improves power by letting less gas escape during firing.
