What Is The Chamber Of A Gun?
The chamber is the space at the breech end
(back end) of the barrel into which a cartridge of ammunition is
loaded before the gun is fired. The chamber is shaped and sized
to accommodate the caliber and
ammunition type of the gun. The chamber will allow the
projectile or bullet to pass through when fired but contains and
restricts the passage of the
casing, holding it in place until
it can be ejected.
