The rifled bore is hexagonal with front sight in half-moon.
The loading is practiced by the right side door dropping thanks to the action of an internal spring, while unloading is done using the metal rod swivelling on its axis. A channel rounds was dug in the carcass in front of the door of loading to facilitate the entry of the long cartridges.
