SOME ADVICE

The 12 bore gun fires 2 1/2", 2 5/8", 2 3/4" cartridges with either top card crimp or «Star» folded crimp. The length of the loaded cartridge must not be less than 55 mm (2 1/16") nor greater dan 65 mm (2 9/16").

The 12 bore Magnum gun fires 3" cartridges, the length of which must not be less than 65 mm (2 9/16") nor greater than 69.5 mm (2 3/4").

The 16 bore gun fires 2 5/8" and 2 3/4" cartridges with «Star» folded crimp, 2 1/2" with top card crimp and 2 3/4" American cartridges. The length of the loaded cartridge must not be less than 57 mm (2 1/4") nor greater than 63.5 mm (2 1/2").

The 20 bore gun fires 2 5/8" and 2 3/4" cartridges with «Star» folded crimp, 2 1/2" with top card crimp and 2 3/4" American cartridges. The length of the loaded cartridges must not be less than 57 mm (2 1/4") nor greater than 63.5 mm (2 1/2").

All the usual good makes of cartridges should function perfectly in the gun. We recommend however, in your interest, L6gia and Browning cartridges which are manufactured under the most modern conditions.

The barrel should be cleaned after use, to avoid rust and corrosion.

Use very little oil, but it should be a good oil suitable for guns. Lightly oil the rubbing surfaces and avoid any excess of oil getting in the mechanism where residues of unburnt powder might collect and become harmful to the functioning of the gun.

The recoil mechanism should from time to time be cleaned and lightly oiled. Never dry completely the magazine tube, as only a slight drop of oil is necessary to avoid scratching.

The oil used for the recoil mechanism should also be good quality, as oils which freeze in cold weather or which leave a sticky residue can considerably change the recoil conditions.
