Re: Burgess shotguns
The Burgess shotguns are true semi-Autos. The patent papers called them that. I have used them dove hunting and in quick draw contests, they auto eject the spent hulls and you get to load the next round by closing the action. The inertia release is part of the trigger group, recoil unlocks the bolt and lets it slide back. If the inertia release is removed you can us it manualy. Charlie Left Hand Damon could get 5 in the air at one time.
