out the plug, the end of which you will see in the exposed end of the magazine tube. The gun will then be a 5 shot semi-automatic.(See Figure 2.)
If at some future time you wish to limit your gun to three shots again, take the adaptor and pass the shaft through the hole in the magazine spring retainer which is exposed in the end of the magazine tube. With this shaft projecting into the magazine, press or lightly tap the head of the adaptor to force the magazine spring retainer downward until the head of the plug is on a level with the end of the magazine tube if it is not already so. Then proceed with assembly as follows:
Check the friction ring setting to be sure the friction rings are set according to the loads you plan to shoot. See page 9 for proper set- ting of friction rings. Place the barrel guide ring around the magazine tube and force the
barrel rearward against the resistance of the recoil spring while guiding the barrel exten- sion into the receiver. Note the guides on the barrel extension which must be placed in the receiver tracks (See Figure 3).
4 With the left hand maintaining rearward pres- sure against the barrel to the point where the front end of the barrel extension is even with or slightly inside of the front end of the re- ceiver (See Figure 4), replace the forearm over the magazine tube and screw the maga- zine cap on tightly. Be careful not to squeeze the rearward end of the forearm. Squeezing too hard may cause it to crack (See Figure 5).
