It is a V2 style gearbox. The motor is held in place by the handle grip.
The gears are a hybrid of metal and plastic. The motor pinion gear and the bevel gear are metal. These are the gears that most commonly strip when made from plastic, so it's good that they are metal. The rest of the gears and piston rack are plastic.
