To Function Test the Firearm

Table of contents

Overview

When the firearm is fully reassembled, a short function test should be conducted to ensure proper operation before loading or discharging the firearm.  If the firearm does not function as described in any part of the Function Test procedure, then the firearm should be reassembled and function tested again.  Do NOT discharge the firearm.  If the firearm fails the Function Test again, Do NOT discharge the firearm.  The firearm should be sent to a Remington Authorized Repair Center.  See "How To Obtain Service" for instruction how to find a Remington Authorized repair center nearest you.

WARNING! Completely unload the firearm before Function Testing.  Look into the ejection port and visually check the chamber and magazine to make sure there are no cartridges in the firearm.  Failure to follow these instructions may lead to property damage, personal injury and/or death.

Function Test:

  1. Always keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction throughout the Function Testing process.
  2. Engage the safety mechanism by moving the safety arm fully rearward to the “SAFE” or “S" position.
  3. Open the action by raising the bolt handle, then pulling the bolt fully rearward. The bolt should stop on the bolt stop at the rear of the stroke.
  4. Look into the ejection port, visually check the chamber and magazine to make sure the firearm is completely unloaded.
  5. Remove the magazine by disengaging the magazine latch while pulling the magazine from the firearm. See Picture 13.
  6. Slide the bolt forward, then push the bolt handle down, locking the bolt into the firing position.
  7. With the safety engaged, pull the trigger rearward and release. The firing pin should not release.
  8. Disengage the safety mechanism by moving the safety arm fully forward to the “F” or “FIRE” position.
  9. Pull the trigger rearward and release. The striker (firing pin) should release.
  10. Ensure the trigger returns completely to the forward position each time the trigger is pulled.
  11. Cycle the bolt and repeat steps 9 and 10 multiple times.

WARNING! If the trigger does not fully return to the forward position each time it is released, then your firearm is NOT in a safe operating condition and it must NOT be used until you have it inspected and the problem corrected by a Remington Authorized Repair Center. Discharging a firearm which does not function properly may lead to property damage, personal injury and/or death.

  1. If the trigger and trigger release completely return as specified in steps 10 and 11, cycle the bolt.
  2. With the safety mechanism in the "FIRE" position, pull the trigger without touching the trigger release.  The striker should not release.  See Picture 32.

WARNING! If the Striker releases when the trigger is pulled without actuating the trigger release, then your firearm is NOT safe to use until you have it inspected and the problem corrected by a Remington Authorized Repair Center. Discharging a firearm which does not function properly may lead to property damage, personal injury and/or death.

  1. If the striker does not release as specified in step 13, remove the bolt.  See "To Remove the Bolt Assembly".
  2. With the safety disengaged, pull and hold the trigger rearward while using a small punch or screwdriver to depress the sear then releasing multiple times.  The sear must return to the full upward position without hesitation.  See Picture 33.

WARNING! If the sear does not return to the full upward position without hesitation, then your firearm is NOT in a safe operating condition and must NOT be used until you have it inspected and the problem corrected by a Remington Authorized Repair Center. Discharging a firearm which does not function properly may lead to property damage, personal
injury and/or death.

  1. If the sear freely returns to the full upward position as specified in operation 15, release the trigger and operate the safety from the Fire "F" to the Safe "S" position multiple times.  The safety must operate freely.  The safety arm must be positioned in the full Safe "S" or the full Fire "F" position.
  2. Repeat steps 15 and 16 multiple times.

WARNING!  If the safety does NOT freely return to the full Safe "S" or full Fire "F" position after repeating steps 15 thru 16 multiple times, then your firearm is NOT in a safe operating condition and it must NOT be used until you have it inspected and corrected by a Remington Authorized Repair Center.  Discharging a firearm which does not function properly may lead to property damage, personal injury and/or death.

  1. Engage the safety mechanism by moving the safety arm fully rearward to the "SAFE" or "S" position.
  2. Install the bolt assembly into the receiver.  See page 9, "To Install the Bolt Assembly".
  3. Place the empty magazine into the magazine well until it is latched fully.
  4. Disengage the safety by placing the safety mechanism in the "FIRE" or "F" position.
  5. Close the action smartly (with force) by moving the bolt assembly fully forward quickly.  Once fully forward, push down on the bolt handle, caming the bolt into the locked position.
  6. The striker (firing pin) must not release and the empty magazine should remain latched in position.
  7. To check if striker (firing pin) released, (with the safety mechanism disengaged), pull the trigger fully rearward.  The striker (firing pin) should release.
  8. Repeat steps 22 thru 25 multiple times.

WARNING!  If the striker (firing pin) does NOT remain cocked when the bolt is closed smartly, the firearm is NOT safe to use.  Return the firearm to the factory or a Remington Authorized Repair Center.  Discharging a firearm which does not function properly can cause property damage, personal injury and/or death.

  1. Engage the safety mechanism by moving the safety arm fully rearward to the "SAFE" or "S" position.

WARNING!  The firearm owner and user must accept full responsibility for the correct reassembly and functioning of the firearm after the disassembly or the replacement of parts.  Incorrectly assembling the firearm or the use of modified or incorrect parts may lead to damage to your firearm, property damage, personal injury and/or death to you or others.

Remington recommends all service and replacement of components be performed by a Remington Authorized Repair Center.  If a repair or component replacement was not completed by a Remington Authorized Repair Center, we recommend that you have your firearm checked by an Authorized Repair Center.
