Hatsan Escort PS Double Magnum Description:
In short, this is a HATSAN shotgun model Escort PS Double Magnum, chambered in 20 gauge. This model has a Mossy Oak Break Up Infinity camo finish.
Besides, the Smart Valve Piston automatically adjusts the exact & reliable gas pressure needed for a wide range of loads from 7/8 oz (24gr) shot loads to heavy 2 oz (57gr) magnum loads. When firing light loads, almost all of the gases are used to operate the action, and only a small portion is exhausted. When firing heaviest magnum & double magnum loads most of the gases are exhausted, and only a portion of the gases are used to operate the action. Escort’s patented Smart Valve Piston automatically self adjusts this reliably even if you mix different size & weight shotshells in the magazine and Escort shoots them all. Also, thanks to the Smart Valve Piston, most of the recoil is eliminated before it reaches your shoulder giving shooting conformance, reduced barrel lift and faster swing on targets. Also, Smart Valve Piston is standard on all Escort semi-auto shotguns.
Smart Valve Piston
When firing heaviest magnum & double magnum shells; excess gas pressure opens the Smart Valve Piston and compresses the leaf spring. Smart Valve Piston automatically self adjusts the necessary gas pressure needed to operate the action. And the excess gases exhaust upwards from the sides of the forend. As the majority of the excess gas pressure is absorbed thanks to Smart Valve Piston, most of the recoil is eliminated before reaching your shoulder, and other inner parts of the shotgun are protected against high-pressure impacts.
When firing light loads; almost all of the gas pressure is used to operate the action, and only a small portion is exhausted. Because the gas pressure is relatively smaller in light loads, the gas pressure cannot open much the Smart Valve Piston and cannot compress the leaf spring. Hence only a small portion is exhausted, and the majority is used to operate the action.
