Trigger mechanism with single trigger can be finely adjusted. Mechanical safety has three positions: safe, fire and secure position, when it is possible to unlock the action, but it is not possible to fire.
Thread on the muzzle enables the assembly of accessories (gas or masking), and it is protected by a threaded ring.
Folding stock is made of pomymer. The height of the cheek pad can be adjusted and the length of the stock is changed by changing the number of inserts.This provides safe and comfortable position of the shooter during firing.
