Advantages and disadvantages
This is a very rare weapon, almost beyond repair.

- To achieve this result, I had many details of the mechanisms – based USM, release lever, trigger guard is make of aluminum alloy.
- The coupler design of the breech allows you to change the barrels, setting tube 28 or 32 caliber.
- Mount trunks only between the intermediate coupling prevents their deformation, so astral (hit at one point) does not always work.
On the breech of the barrel block has a factory recess forming bar type “swallow tail”. You can put optics.

Broken trunks tab on the bottom edge of the pad to the forearm actuates the pusher of the trigger and cocking the trigger. The fuse when locking is automatically released.
