1012 Shotgun is Latest Evolution in CZ Shotgun Line
New for 2019 the 1012 Shotgun from CZ
The 1012 Shotgun 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 shotgun’s 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 1012’s needs are vastly fewer. 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. Thus 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.
