Advantages and disadvantages
Good workmanship, robust and indestructible construction.
- Beautiful, pricedata bed with pillow “Monte Carlo”.
- Very quickly you can reload, at a certain skill even distracted from the line of sight. Rate of fire shotgun is superior to the traditional bortovoy rifle. Well, guess the Americans to equip a foregrip spring that it came back, the Remington 7600 carbine is not inferior to the Browning Maral, and are very close to self-loading semi-automatic.
- A movable fore-end somewhat limits the scope of a shotgun. On the bipod it will not install, and shoot the rest. somewhat problematic. This weapon is for shooting offhand, unexpected encounter with prey literally nose to nose.
- Valve with rotating cylinders, which securely locks the barrel by three lugs.

- Not much more lever lock forend in the locked position, located on the left side of the receiver above the trigger guard.
- The trigger mechanism is unregulated. It is normal for a semi-automatic weapon when you need a strict balance between all parts of the trigger. For manual recharge like foresight are clearly excessive.
- The slot of the rear sight is narrow, it is completely covered by the projection of the flies, so is difficult to aim. It would be nice, guess the designers to equip these devices are fiber-optic filaments.
- Recharge is accompanied by a rather loud clanging, which is not always appropriate for hunting.
For the arms used on sea and battue hunting, it’s hard. Although this is a consequence of descent from a semi-automatic carbine.

The principle of operation
Before bringing the weapon into the firing position it is necessary to press on a lever located on the left side of the receiver above the trigger guard. It unlocks the forearm, after which it can be pushed back.
The shutter is operated by a longitudinally sliding forend to which it is linked by two metal guides. While driving back, the larva shutter rotates and unlocks the barrel. Next is the engagement of the trigger projection on the stem of the shutter and a platoon of trigger. Returning to the original position, the cylinder bolt picks up from the store cartridge, Doyle it into the chamber and turns around, catching lugs for the breech of the barrel.
Before loading the carabiner is placed on the fuse (the left shift button, the red marker is not visible). For the Department store is pressed the lever located on the right side of the receiver above the trigger guard.

The cartridges are stacked in a staggered fashion, the store is inserted on a regular place and latched.
Fifth, additional, the cartridge is charged through the window of ejector sleeves that open at the shift of the forearm backwards. The reverse movement of the forearm paddle delivers the cartridge into the chamber and locks the barrel channel. If there is no need to fire immediately activate the lock forend.
System security allows you to block a weapon, make it inaccessible for unauthorized use. To enable this, put the fuse in the “Stop” position (shift to the left, the red marker is not visible), insert shaped key supplied with the J-shaped groove on the left side of the button guard and turn it so the risk has coincided with a white dot. In this position not only blocks the sear, but the hammer.
The pins have a conical shape, it is necessary to knock them on the right side.

- Knock the two pins attaching the trigger and remove it from the receiver.
- Remove the screw at the front of the forearm, a movement to muzzle the cut to clear it.
- Give the frame the recoil mechanism forward. The tube opened under the clutch mounting of the forearm, find the through-holes. Insert them in a metal rod. Movement counterclockwise rotate the tube until it comes out of engagement with the bolt receiver.
- Pull the barrel Assembly to the frame of the recoil mechanism of the receiver.
- Turn the frame the recoil mechanism around the axle shaft at 900 and remove it.
