A new evolution of the semi-automatic shotgun called 1012 from CZ USA.
The CZ-USA 1012 is the latest expansion in the CZ line of semi-automatic shotguns. The most important feature of 1012 is that it uses a gasless inertial operating system. So instead of a typical model that will redirect the gas from the barrel to execute the action, 1012 has a spring (housed in the bolt) to store the energy during the blowback operation, then uses the energy a moment later to rotate and unlock. The bolt lugs on the barrel to extract and eject the spent casing.
Also, the inertial system does not require a strict maintenance program as gas guns. During CZ’s 1012 test, they were able to run 5000 rounds without oil or cleaning. During that test, the gun performed flawlessly with no broken parts or malfunctions. So during everyday field use with cleaning and lubrication, you can be sure your 1012 will perform.
Additionally, this shotgun was tested with light recoil target loads from 2-3/4″ up to heavy 3″ magnums, and the performance was exceptional. CZ-USA 1012 was able to cycle and run most cartridges on the market except for Winchester Featherlite (23/25 oz at 980 fps) on the light and Remington HyperSonic (1 1/4 oz at 1700 fps) on the heavy side.
