The interesting feature on the shotgun is that the slide action is spring loaded. So when you slide the forearm back, you'll feel some tension, and the forearm will slide back forward in its own as you as you let it go. Based on what I read online, the forearm moves back with enough force to chamber a shell. It definitely felt pretty good.
I have that shotgun (as a backup)... the spring assist slide is garbage (I took it out), constantly caused FTF... once removed it works fine (like regular action shotgun).
What I DO like though is the extended mag tube... it's crimped inside so as stock it only holds 4 (or 5) rounds... but I was able to open it up and now it holds 7+1... was a pita, but now that's its done I'm happy.
It's a good beater (would never use it as a primary HD gun)... for the price it's worth getting - especially if you modify the mag tube to full capacity.
BTW, the name is "Cobra Force Tactical" LOL... made by Tristar (a Turkish manufacturer).
