The LAW M704 rifle action is a state of the art, modern-day true controlled round feed system. The action was designed to close the bolt with a round in the chamber requiring minimal effort. A heavy-duty spring loaded pivoting extractor and mechanical ejector ensure positive feed and extraction even under the most severe conditions. With the CRF feature, cartridges from the magazine box slide under the extractor, holding the round from the beginning of the feed cycle and controlling its complete path all the way into the breech and eventual extraction and ejection upon firing. As the cartridge is pushed forward, up and out of the magazine, the case rim slides into the slotted bolt-face rim and is held firmly as it chambers. Most significantly, unlike a traditional Mauser claw, when the M704 bolt is closed, the bolt face rotates around the cartridge and supports it underneath. A large claw shaped extractor is actually part of the bolt face rim.
