Tula Toz o/u shotgun

Was out at an estate sale today and bought a small group of firearms for a good price...in this group there is what I've determined to be a tula toz shotgun... everything is pretty self explanatory on it except this switch on the side of the receiver, can anyone tell me what it does? I haven't gotten a chance to get out and use it to find out...

It LOOKS like a TOZ-34 (which should be marked in Cyrillic, if you take some close-up pictures of the markings), and this lever should be part of the take-down assembly; there's a manual in Russian at http://akbnn.ru/manual_toz34.php , and it warns that this lever should be in-line with the barrels during use.

The lever on the right side of the TOZ-34 receiver, which the manufacturer calls the "thumbpiece", allows the barrels to be separated from the receiver when it's rotated downward.
(The forend is non-detachable, staying with the barrels)
