With the prevalence of more high-end, semi-automatic shotguns distributed to the military, Styrling decided to appeal to the “every-day man” and develop a relatively cheap, but robust, pump action shotgun. Chambered for the standard 12 Gauge shell that has become commonplace in every gun store, the shooter does not need to buy special Styrling-manufactured shells such as the Styrling .45, however, coupons on components and gear are available in each ammunition box.

A pump-action firearm is typically fed from a tubular magazine underneath the barrel, which also serves as a guide to the movable fore-end. The rounds are fed in one by one through a port in the receiver, where they are pushed forward. A latch at the rear of the magazine holds the rounds in place in the magazine until they are needed. If it is desired to load the gun fully, a round may be loaded through the ejection port directly into the chamber, or cycled from the magazine, which is then topped off with another round.
This model lacks a trigger dis-connector, allowing the user to “slam fire” (hold the trigger down and rack the slide, allowing it to shoot faster, somewhat.)
