The main point is these things are made for people travelling long distances needing high preformance.
This is called "fortner": here is what a site said it meant "Patented fortner straight pull action with repeating device allows very fast repeating. important seconds for shooting success."
these things are rugged to a point. My friend fell on his a few times while skiing and it did not break/bend. When these guns are really delicate is when people drill a bunch of holes in them to cut down weight for competition
