When the first round is fired, the shotgun automatically reloads using the energy of the gases of the fired round passing from the barrel port into the gas block and then into the gas cylinder forcing the gas piston and then the bolt carrier to the rear, ejecting the spent shell casing.
As the bolt carrier returns to the forward position using the energy of the recoil spring, the next shell is picked up from the magazine and is positioned into the breach of the barrel, ready to be fired when the trigger is pulled again.
In addition, the firearm can be cycled by hand (with a magazine in the magazine well) by retracting the bolt carrier to the rearmost position by hand and utilizing the energy of the recoil spring to pick up the shell from the magazine and position it in the breach of the barrel. The bolt rotates around its axis as the bolt carrier moves along the receiver rails. When in battery, the bolt is locked in place with two locking lugs.
The trigger and firing mechanism utilizes a hammer type design to ensure single-shot firing and a trigger blocking device when the safety lever is set at the safe position to prevent firing. The magazine is released by the force of gravity while pressing the magazine latch forward.
