The CZ Upland Ultralight O/U shotgun is next in the line of new shotguns offered under the CZ brand.
This traditionally conceived over/under of 12 ga. has trigger mechanism operating with a single trigger enabling also barrel firing order selection. The action is opened using a well-tested top lever. A major asset of this model is exceptionally low weight at just 2.72 kg/6 lbs., which is well-nigh 1 kg less when compared with other models having metal action. Such a massive drop in weight will be certainly appreciated not only by hunters in all-day hunting and nature roaming, but also by sport shooters in time-consuming disciplines.
Use of Shotgun Cartridges in Shotguns Offered by CZ-USA
Double barrelled side-by-sides, over-unders and semi-automatic shotguns are chambered for 76 mm of chamber length and are proofed with higher chamber pressure test (Proof Mark V in blazon), which allows to use cartridges with steel shots loads in the cartridge length from 65 mm to 76 mm or cartridges of 70 mm length with steel shots up to maximum diameter of 3.25 mm (0.128 in).
The shotguns by CZ-USA do not have Proof Mark with Lilly, nevertheless they are robust enough to withstand shooting with shots as specified above.
This applies for both gauges - 12 and 20.
