Kansas City, KS (August 22, 2019) – Whether you are an upland or waterfowl
hunter, or just like to break a few clays on the weekends, the CZ 1012 shotgun
is your shotgun. With its new gas-less operating system the CZ 1012 is a
workhorse that keeps running with minimal maintenance.
The CZ 1012 represents CZ-USA’s next evolution in their semi-auto shotgun line with the 1012’s gas-less spring bolt 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 and expends this energy a split second later to rotate and unlock the twin lug bolt head from the barrel extension to withdraw the spent shell.
major advantage of this gas-less system is a much less stringent maintenance
schedule, unlike gas guns, which require periodic cleaning of the piston and
extensive testing of this system by CZ engineers and designers, 5,000 shells
were fired through several CZ 1012’s, without a drop of oil or cleaning of any
sort being done. Results? Zero parts breakage or malfunctions. Try that with
your standard gas-operated shotgun.
with volume shooting, most hunters will not need to perform more than the
occasional cleaning and oiling. Saving them time to do the important things in
life, like…more hunting!
the gas-less system itself is tuned to run a wider variety of shells found on
the US market, from light-recoiling target loads up to super-hot 3-inch magnum
loads. You can break clays using target loads one day and turn around the next
day for some goose hunting, knowing your CZ 1012 will effortless cycle those
heavy-duty waterfowl loads.
CZ 1012 also features a 28-inch barrel and has optional furniture, which can be
shimmied for the perfect fit, shooters can choose from a finely checkered
buttstock and forend made from Turkish walnut or a rugged polymer set. The
cross-bolt safety is located at the front of the trigger guard making it
equally as easy to operate for left-handed shooters. The ample trigger guard
allows for gloved fingers, and the shotgun holds 4+1 shells. Each CZ 1012 comes
with five extra-long extended chokes to fit any shooting need, and the gun is
available with a Black, Bronze or Grey receiver or a full camo option is
Hunting or recreational shooting, the CZ 1012 has you covered at a price shooters can actually afford.
Available in various finishes at MSRPs from $659 to $749 for Camo.
