Retay Debuts New Inertia-Plus ™ The Most Advanced Recoil Driven Shotgun Action In the World

by Shopify Expert February 26, 2018

The proprietary Inertia-Plus ™   Action features a revolutionary power assisted rotating bolt that improves on the Bruno Civolani inertia action.  

ShotgunsDirect.Com News Wire - RETAY ARMS LTD. STI. of Konya Turkey debuts the most advanced recoil driven shotgun action in the world. 

Engineers at RETAY Arms have been developing and testing The Inertia Plus ™ system since 2015 with the goal of improving the functionality of the traditional inertia rotating bolt head designed by Bruno Civolani in 1967.

The Retay Arms Inertia Plus ™ system uses a specially adapted torsion mechanism built into the body of the system’s bolt head. The mechanism is charged with the kinetic energy produced as the floating bolt-head rotates backward out of battery during the initial phase of recoil cycle.  

This kinetic energy is stored momentarily within the bolt body as the bolt body moves backward in the second phase of recoil cycle. During the bolt body’s recovery phase the torsion mechanism releases the stored kinetic energy to apply additional forward rotational force that assists the forward movement of the bolt-head ensuring that it locks securely into battery with the barrel chamber, making the action ready for the next shot under all conditions.

The system eliminates the bolt-head lock up issues that can be experienced with a traditional inertia system when cycling lightweight or lower velocity shotgun shells. The Retay Inertia Plus ™ system also eliminates the need to fully spring slam or manually “click” the bolt into the battery during initial chambering.  

RETAY expects their new Inertia Plus ™ system to benefit consumers by offering a single platform that provides a higher level of performance across the entire spectrum of shotgun ammunition types.

By improving cycling performance with low recoil loads and without sacrificing the virtues of lightweight, low maintenance and all weather reliability that the inertia action is known for, Retay is prepared to offer shooters an action that will provide greater confidence in any hunting, shooting or defense scenario.

RETAY currently holds PATENT PENDING status for various aspects of the Inertia Plus ™ mechanism in TR and the EU and has filed patent applications for the same with the US Patent and Trademark Office.
