I'm considering getting a Beretta 3032 Tomcat (.32 Auto). The manual states (on the middle of page 12, and again at the top and middle of page 13) that the slide "does not have an extractor". What is the physics behind the ejection of the spent cartridge in this semi-auto firearm?

Many blowback firearms don't have an extractor, the pressure from the shot being fired moves the slide back and blows the case out of the chamber.

My wife bought a 3032 years ago. Fat little thing for pocket carry compared to P32/LCP etc. Double action trigger pull was long and hard,
single action the trigger is so far back it was uncomfortable. If you have a dud round or want to clear the gun you have to tip the barrel
up and pull the round out.

The Beretta is long gone---her current favorite is a M&P 380 EZ.
