G'snera/,Operation

The BPS shotgun is a manually operated, slide action, repeating shotgun. The release

]:~:echanism is operated by moving the slide (forearm) in. a rearward motion, followed by a forward motion. This action unlocks the breechb! oc k, extracts and ejects the fired

shell casing, transfers a live shell from tile magazine to the chamber and re-locks the breechblock .. The BPS is loaded from the 'bottom of the rece iver and fired shell casings are ejected from a bottom erection pont. Bottom loading and ejection makes the ·HIJS ambidextrous. The BPS is designed so that. the barrel can be easily removed by unscrewing the magazine cap from, the magazine tube and then sliding the barrel forward out of the receiver. This facilitates cleaning) transportation and storage,
