The semicircular wood ridge at the rear of the forearm should fit into the matching groove in the front of the receiver (See Figure 6).
CHECK YOUR CERTAIN THE AND MAGAZINE
GUN CAREFULLY TO BE CHAMBER, FEED MECHANISM CONTAIN NO SHELLS.
Draw the breech bolt rearward and lock it open.
Rest the butt end of the stock on any conve- nient rigid surface. With the left hand apply rearward pressure to the barrel, then unscrew the magazine cap with the right hand. While maintaining rearward pressure on the barrel, remove the forearm from the magazine tube.
While continuing to hold the barrel firmly, gradually release pressure and slide the barrel directly forward off the magazine tube. DO NOT SUDDENly RELEASE PRESSURE AGAlNST THE BARREL. If this is done, the strong recoil
spring may throw the barrel off the gun.
AFTER THE BARREL HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM YOUR GUN, LEAVE THE BREECH BOLT IN THE OPEN POSITION. DO NOT PRESS THE BOLT RELEASE BUTTON.
If the breechbolt is released forward with the barrel removed, the operating handle will be driven against the front edge of the receiver ejection port, which will cause damage to the receiver.
5 For the convenience in casing and carrying the dismantled gun, return the forearm to its posi- tion on the magazine tube and screw on the magazine cap. You will then have two neat units. One is the barrel; the other is the action with forearm and stock.
Operation of the “Safety”
The cross bolt “safety” prevents the trigger from being pulled when in the “on safe” position. The safety is located conveniently at the rear of the trigger guard and has an enlarged head on the right side designed to be conspicuous “ON SAFE”, hence, a shooter is not likely to lose a shot through failure to notice that his “safety” is on. The enlarged head also aids you to move the safety to FIRE position with unusual speed and convenience.
In the “off safe” Or “fire” position a red warning band is visible on the safety button on the left side of the trigger guard. To place the gun “ON SAFE,” press the “safety” button to the right. To move the “safety” to the FIRE position, press the “safety” to the left (See figures 7 & 8).
