Breech Loading

Breech LoadingA breach-loading shotgun is typically defined as one that "breaks" open on a hinge-like mechanism to expose the chamber(s) at the rear of the barrel. The shot shell is placed directly into the chamber and the gun is closed in order to shoot.

A breach loading side-by-side or over-under shotgun has considerable appeal in the field. The mechanisms are simple, easy to clean, and there's simply no question that when broken open, the guns are safe to carry.
