Armsel Striker

Armsel Striker Shotgun - 12 Gauge. Strikers are identified not only by the unique 'knob' that serves as the winding key in front of the drum, but also the drum advance lever on the back of the receiver. The Cobray guns don't have this lever.

The original South African-manufactured cylinder shotgun, designed by Rhodesian Hilton Walker in the 1980s. Various versions existed, some with the top-folding stock, and others without.

Armsel Protecta

Armsel Protecta, 12" barrel - 12 gauge
Armsel Protecta, 7" barrel - 12 gauge

The Armsel Protecta is an improved version of the original Striker designed for quicker reloading. It features an auto ejection mechanism whereby some of the propellent gasses are vented off into the chamber and used to blast the previously fired shell backwards out of the ejection port into a large shell deflector, which is the most obvious external difference between the Protecta and the original Striker. In order to prevent a live shell being ejected when a fully loaded Protecta is fired a special loading gate was added which prevents the first round being ejected, but opens as the drum rotates after the first shot so subsequent empty shells are ejected. In order for the last shell to be ejected the cylinder must still be advanced to the next position and the ejector rod along on the right side of the barrel used. The clockwork mechanism on the drum was also removed (resulting in the deletion of the winding key) in order to speed up loading so instead the drum of the Protecta is manually advanced after each shot by rotating the entire barrel shroud and attached forwards grip slightly to the right and then back again. Due to this the Protecta is not actually a semi-automatic shotgun so any depictions of it as such are either incorrect, or a Sentinel Arms Striker-12 which was available with a variant that combined the auto ejection mechanism with a traditional Striker style clockwork drum.

SWD/Cobray Street Sweeper

SWD/Cobray Street Sweeper with short barrel and top folding stock - 12 Gauge. Visible is the Cobray logo on the side, no visible drum advance lever like on the Striker and the recognizable 'key' in the front of the drum for winding up the rotary cylinder.
SWD/Cobray Street Sweeper - 12 Gauge

The Street Sweeper is the American-made copy of the Striker; the standard commercial version was recognizable by its longer 18" barrel, which was necessary to comply with U.S. firearms laws for over the counter shotgun sales. There were short barreled versions of the Street Sweeper, but like all short barreled shotguns, it required a tax stamp and was a strongly regulated device. When the Clinton Administration declared the civilian version of the Street Sweeper to be a 'destructive device' (like a mortar or a rocket launcher) in 1993, nearly all commercial sales ceased and the remaining samples in the chain of commerce could only be sold to holders of Federal Destructive Device Permits. Although it is a copy of the Striker, there is a relatively low interchangeability of parts between the two guns. The Street Sweeper is usually seen in American action films, whereas the Striker and Protecta are more likely to appear in films made outside of the U.S. The Street Sweeper also has the distinctive Key in the front of the drum to wind the 'clockwork' mechanism like the original Striker shotgun.
