2.4

Cycle

of Operation.

Begins

with

weapon

loaded,

hammer

cocked

and

safety

disengaged.

A. Firing

- The

cycle

begins

by pulling

the trigger

rearward

which

moves

the disconnector

forward

to disengage

the sear

from the hammer.

The

hammer

is driven

by the mainspring,

rotates,

and strikes

the firing

pin.

B. - As the fore-end

Unlocking

is moved

rearward,

a lug

on the

top

of the

bolt slide

engages

a camming

surface

on the bottom

of the

bolt

lock,

unlocking

the bolt

lock from the barrel

extension.

The

bolt then

moves

rearward

until the

bolt slide

stops

at the

back

of the receiver.

When

the

front

of the

bolt

lock pivots

down,

the back

of the

bolt

lock

retracts

the

firing

pin and keeps

it from

moving

forward

until the

bolt

is back

in the

locked

position.

C.

the end

of the rearward

stroke,

the shotshell,

which

is

captured

between

the extractors

and the

bolt face,

strikes

the ejector

and

is pivoted

out through

the ejection

port.

E. Cocking

- As

the

bolt moves

to the

rear,

it cams

back

the hammer

assembly

and

depresses

the disconnector,

disengaging

it from

the sear.

When

the disconnector

is depressed:

the

sear

is able

to reengage

the

sear

notch

in the hammer

after

the bolt

slide

has been

moved

fully to

the rear.

When

the

bolt is returned

to the

fully

locked

position,

the

action

bar lock

is released

by the

bolt slide

and moves

the sear.

This

prevents

F.

Feeding

- As

the

bolt slide

nears

the end

of its rearward

movement,

it

cams

the elevator

to its lowered

position.

The

bolt slide

also

cams

the

cartridge

interrupter

into position

to block

the second

shell

from

being

released.

Next,

the cartridge

stop

is cammed

out

of the

way

by the

left

hand

action

bar

allowing

the shell

to be pushed

onto

the elevator

by the

magazine

follower.

 

G.

Chambering

- When

the bolt

slide

moves

forward,

it cams

the elevator

up, bringing

the shell

into alignment

with

the chamber.

As the

shell

is

pushed

forward

by the

bolt

into the chamber,

it is captured

by the

extractors.

When

the bolt nears

the

limit of its forward

travel,

the

right

hand

action

bar cams

the cartridge

interrupter

down,

releasing

the

next

shell

to rest against

the cartridge

stop.

The feeding/chambering

cycle

is

now

complete.

H.

Locking

- On

the

return

cycle,

as the fore-end

is moved

forward,

the

lug

on top

of the

bolt

slide

contacts

the camming

surface

on the bottom

of the

bolt

lock.

When

the bolt

is moved

forward,

the

top front

end

of

the

bolt lock is cammed

up, locking

into the barrel

extension.

The

new

round

is now

ready

to

be fired.

2.5 Safety
