Important Parts of the Firearm

The Safety Mechanism

The safety mechanism provides protection against accidental or unintentional discharge under normal usage when properly engaged and in good working order. The safety mechanism is not a substitute for following the rules of safe gun handling.

To engage the safety mechanism, pull the safety mechanism fully to the rear towards the ‘S’ position. See Picture 3.

Always put the safety mechanism in the ‘S’ position before handling, loading or unloading the firearm.

model_seven_parts_03_picture_03.png

When you are ready to fire the firearm, push the safety mechanism forward towards the ‘F’ position to disengage the safety mechanism. See Picture 4.

model_seven_parts_04_picture_04.png

Do not touch the trigger while moving the safety mechanism. Your fingers and all other objects should be kept outside of the trigger guard and away from the trigger until you are actually ready to fire by pulling the trigger.

Never pull the trigger when the safety mechanism is in the ‘S’ position.

WARNING! The firearm will fire when the trigger is pulled and the safety mechanism is in the ‘F’ position. Even when the safety mechanism is in the ‘S’ position, careless handling can cause the firearm to fire. SEE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF FIREARM SAFETY.

The Security System

A SECURITY SYSTEM DOES NOT ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR SAFE GUN HANDLING AND STORAGE, INCLUDING KEEPING THIS AND EVERY GUN UNLOADED AND LOCKED IN A SECURE PLACE WHEN NOT IN USE.READ AND FOLLOW THESE AND OTHER SAFETY RULES IN THIS INSTRUCTION BOOK. FAILURE TO READ, UNDERSTAND AND OBEY THESE RULES CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.  SEE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF FIREARM SAFETY.

model_seven_parts_05_picture_05.png

The firearm you have purchased is equipped with either an integrated security system or with a separate locking device.

The separate locking device included with your firearm will be packaged with its own instructions.

The integrated security system locking device instructions are described below.

This security system enables the owner to secure the bolt assembly on the firearm in the action open position with the use of a special key.

The integrated security system provided with this firearm will not allow the bolt to be closed when the security system is engaged.

The existence of the security system does not change the function of the firearm’s safety mechanism.

Once the bolt assembly is installed, on the left side of the firearm you will see a security button on the bolt plug of the bolt assembly. See Picture 5.

On the security button there is a “J’’ shaped slot. This “J’’ slot is the key hole for engaging and disengaging the security system. Also on the sides of the security button you will see a RED and a WHITE indicator dot. When the security button is viewed from the rear of the firearm, the dot indicates whether or not the security system is engaged or disengaged. If the RED dot is visible from the rear of the firearm, the security system is disengaged and the bolt can be cammed into the firing position. (See below and the To Install Bolt Assembly section for instructions on closing and opening the bolt.) If the WHITE dot is visible from the rear of the firearm, the security system is engaged and the bolt cannot be cammed into the firing position.

To engage the security system the bolt must be installed in the firearm. NEVER ATTEMPT TO ENGAGE OR DISENGAGE THE INTEGRATED SECURITY SYSTEM (“ISS”) WHEN THE BOLT IS CAMMED IN THE FIRING POSITION. With your new firearm you will receive two (2) keys. If your key has a cap, remove the cap before using. See Picture 6.

model_seven_parts_06_picture_06.png

When the white dot is visible from the rear of the firearm the security system is engaged. To disengage the security system, push the key into the “J’’ slot with the bolt assembly in the open position. BE SURE TO PUSH THE KEY IN AS FAR AS IT WILL GO. Once the key is in place turn it counter-clockwise as far as it will go. From the rear of the firearm you will now see a RED dot. Once the red dot is in place remove the key.

THE SECURITY SYSTEM IN NOW DISENGAGED AND THE BOLT CAN BE CLOSED AND CAMMED INTO THE FIRING POSITION.

To engage the security system, FIRST ENSURE THAT THE BOLT IS IN THE OPEN POSITION, then push the key into the “J’’ slot. Once the key is in place turn it clockwise as far as it will go. From the rear of the firearm you will now see a WHITE dot. See Picture 7. Once the white dot is in place remove the key. THE SECURITY SYSTEM IS NOW ENGAGED AND THE BOLT CANNOT BE CAMMED INTO THE FIRING POSITION.

model_seven_parts_07_picture_07.png

IMPORTANT: ISS will not lock the firearm unless engaged with the bolt open.  Do not attempt to engaged ISS when bolt is closed.

In operating the security button, NEVER use excessive force to turn the key. If the key will not turn freely, contact a Remington® Authorized Service Center.

Keep your security system engaged when your firearm is not in use. Keep your keys in a secure place, inaccessible to others. DO NOT leave your keys or any ammunition with your firearm, which should be kept unloaded and locked in a safe place. You know you have properly engaged the system when the bolt will not close.

If you lose the keys DO NOT attempt to disengage the security system using a foreign object. This will damage your firearm. Contact your Remington Authorized Service Center for a replacement key. Even if you think the security system is engaged, careless handling can cause the firearm to fire. SEE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF FIREARM SAFETY.

  7. Slide the bolt assembly from the firearm.

model_seven_parts_10_trigger.pngThe Trigger Assembly

Pulling the trigger fires the firearm. The trigger assembly on your rifle may permit the adjustment of the trigger pull force by the user (see Picture 9 to determine if your trigger assembly is
user adjustable). On rifles that are so equipped, the trigger pull force is adjustable without removing the action from the stock.
model_seven_parts_11_picture_09.png

WARNING! Only the trigger pull force is adjustable. For safety’s sake, NEVER make adjustments or alterations to any other parts of the trigger assembly or rifle.

WARNING! NEVER put your finger on the trigger unless you are going to fire the firearm.

To Adjust Trigger Pull Force:

The trigger of your rifle has been preset at the factory in conformity with industry guidelines to have a trigger pull force of at least 3 pounds. However, for competition target shooters firing the rifle from a secure stationary rest in a controlled environment, the trigger pull force can be adjusted downward by the user or a qualified gunsmith using the procedure set forth below.

WARNING! Adjustment of the trigger pull force in this rifle below 3 pounds should only be made for a rifle to be used in competitive target shooting and fired from a secure stationary rest in a controlled environment. For any other purpose, including use in the field, the trigger pull force on your rifle should NEVER be reduced below 3 pounds. Remember – regardless of the amount of trigger pull force, ALWAYS keep the muzzle of your rifle pointed in a safe direction to prevent injury or death caused by an unintended or accidental discharge.

WARNING! With the safety mechanism in the S-SAFE position, check the chamber and magazine of the rifle to make sure there are no cartridges in the rifle. NEVER attempt to adjust the trigger pull force on a loaded rifle.

model_seven_parts_12_picture_10.png

  1. To adjust the trigger pull force, place the provided wrench’s hex key in the socket of the adjustment screw. A standard 1/16” hex key can also be used to make this adjustment.
  2. Adjust the trigger pull force to the desired setting by turning the adjustment screw. Turning the trigger pull adjustment screw counterclockwise will lighten the trigger pull force. Turning the trigger pull adjusting screw clockwise will increase the trigger pull force. Trigger pull will change by approximately 1 lb for each full turn of the adjustment screw.
  3. After making an adjustment, remove the wrench from the socket of the adjustment screw.
  4. Dry fire the rifle several times after making an adjustment to ensure the trigger pull force spring is reseated.
  5. Check the trigger pull force with a force gauge or deadweight.
  6. Repeat step 5 several times to ensure the proper trigger pull force is maintained.
  7. If the setting is satisfactory, the adjustment is complete. If the setting is unsatisfactory, follow the instructions outlined in steps 2–6 until you are satisfied.

WARNING: If proper trigger pull force cannot be maintained from pull to pull, then return the firearm to the factory for service. Do not use your rifle if the trigger pull force can not be maintained.

WARNING: The minimum achievable trigger pull force is preset at the factory and must not be altered.

WARNING: Be sure to note if you have adjusted the trigger pull force below 3 pounds when you store your rifle for any period of time. If you expect at any time to loan or sell your rifle or to use the rifle for anything other than competition target shooting from a secure, stationary rest in a controlled environment, you shouldreadjust the trigger pull force to at least 3 pounds.

The Barrel

The inside of the barrel must be clean and free of obstructions.

I. TO CHECK THE INSIDE OF THE BARREL:

  1. Always point the firearm in a safe direction.
  2. Put the safety mechanism in the ‘S’ position.
  3. Raise the bolt handle.
  4. Pull the bolt all the way back.
  5. Remove any ammunition from the chamber or magazine. See how to unload the firearm.
  6. Remove the bolt.
  7. Look through the inside of the barrel from the chamber end to the muzzle. See Picture 1 above.

II. TO REMOVE OBJECT FROM INSIDE THE BARREL:

  1. Use correct size cleaning rod.
  2. Push cleaning rod from the chamber end all the way through the barrel, until the rod comes out of the muzzle.
  3. If an object cannot be easily pushed out of the barrel with a cleaning rod, return the firearm to the factory or a REMINGTON AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER.

WARNING! NEVER try to remove an object from the barrel by loading another cartridge and firing. This may cause the barrel to burst or a cartridge case to rupture and cause serious personal injury or death.

III.  TO CLEAN THE BARREL FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS SHOWN IN THE CLEANING SECTION.

Before loading the firearm, make sure the inside of the barrel is free of dirt or other obstructions.
