What Is A Slide Of A Pistol?

 

How to Shoot Fast & Accurately  

The Gun Digest Book Of Concealed Carry

 

The slide of a pistol is the spring loaded part of a semi-automatic pistol that moves back and forth as a pistol is fired. It generally houses the firing pin/striker and extractor. As the slide moves back, the extractor removes the spent cartridge from the chamber. As the slide moves forward a fresh cartridge is pushed from the magazine into the chamber of the barrel.
