The latest evolution in our semi-automatic shotgun line the 1012 uses a gas-less inertia operating system. Instead of redirecting gas from the barrel to run the action the 1012 uses a spring within the bolt to store energy during the shotguns recoil spending this energy a split second later to rotate and unlock the twin lugs from the barrel extension and withdraw the spent shell. - The major advantage of an inertia system is the less stringent maintenance schedule. Unlike gas guns that need periodic cleaning of the piston and magazine tube the 1012s needs are vastly fewer. During our testing we pushed 1012s to 5000 rounds without a drop of oil or cleaning of any sort while experiencing zero parts breakage or malfunctions. In normal field use the occasional cleaning and oiling should be more than enough. - Additionally the gas-less system itself is tuned to run a wider variety of shells from light-recoiling target loads up to the smoking hot 3 magnums currently on the market. Weve actively searched out the shells that it doesnt like to cycle and so far the limit on too light is the Winchester Featherlite (23/25 oz at 980 fps) and too hot is Remington HyperSonic (1 1/4 oz at 1700 fps). That means the 1012 will readily digest the vast majority of shotshells on the market. - Chambering: 12 Gauge - Magazine Capacity: 4+1 - Max Shell Length: 3 in - Barrel Length: 28 - Chokes: Includes 5 (FIMMICC) - Stock: Turkish Walnut - Length Of Pull: 14 1/2 in - Barrel Finish: Gloss Black Chrome - Rib: 8mm Flat Vent - Overall Length: 47 in - Weight: 6.5 lbs
