WARNING: THIS FIREARM COULD CHAMBER A ROUND if it is dropped or jarred with a loaded magazine in place - either with the Bolt Carrier Assembly locked to the rear, or in its forward position.
WARNING: BEWARE OF DANGEROUS PROCEDURES
Be sure Cam Pin is installed in the Bolt Group. If it isn't, your rifle can still fire and may explode.
- If your rifle stops firing with a live round in the chamber of a hot barrel (a misfire), REMOVE THE CHAMBERED ROUND IMMEDIATELY! However, if you are unable to remove the round within 10 seconds, remove the magazine and wait 15 minutes with the Rifle Pointing in a SAFE DIRECTION! This way no one will be hurt by a possible round "cooking-off" (i.e. the round detonating just from the heat of the barrel). In any event, keep your face away from the ejection port while clearing a hot chamber.
- Whenever you are handling the rifle or clearing a chambered round, control the direction of the muzzle and keep yourself clear of the Muzzle!
- If there is water in the barrel, do not fire the rifle. IT COULD EXPLODE!
- If you hear a noticeable difference in sound or recoil is experienced, STOP FIRING! Either condition could indicate an incomplete powder burn and/or a bullet stuck in the bore.
