Note: The safety mechanism cannot be engaged in the “safe” position unless and until the rifle is cocked. 

To engage the safety mechanism in the “safe” position, pull the safety to its most rearward position, covering the red indicator dot on the stock. (See Picture 2).

To place the safety mechanism in the “fire” position, push the safety fully forward, exposing the red indicator dot on the stock. The rifle is now ready to fire by pulling the trigger. (See Picture 3).

The firearm will fire when the trigger is pulled and the safety mechanism is in the “FIRE” position if the bolt is installed in the receiver. 

The Locking Device

This firearm was originally sold with a key-operated locking device to assist the owner in protecting against unauthorized use. These are storage, locking devices and the firearm should be unloaded when stored or not in use. Using a locking device cannot substitute securing your firearm and ammunition in a separate, locking location. See the Ten  Commandments of firearms safety

The locking device provided 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 firearms safety.

Keep your locking device engaged when your firearm is not in use. Keep the 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. 

External Control Parts

THE BOLT: The bolt has been packaged separately in the shipping carton. The bolt should be cleaned and lightly oiled before its initial use. You must become familiar with installing and removing the bolt properly. NEVER attempt to install or remove the bolt on a loaded firearm. Completely unload the firearm (empty chamber and magazine) before installing or removing the bolt.

model-five-warning-icon.pngWARNING

The bolt has been fitted at the factory to assure proper head space when used with this particular rifle. Never interchange bolts from one rifle to another as this may affect head space leading to a potentially hazardous situation. If your bolt is damaged or lost, return your rifle to the factory for replacement with a properly fitted bolt. 

THE TRIGGER: The trigger mechanism has been preset at the factory. Never alter or modify the trigger or firing mechanism. (See The Ten Commandments of Firearms Safety.)

THE BARREL: Some of the metal parts of your rifle have had a rust preventative compound applied at the factory to protect the metal during shipment. Before shooting your rifle for the first time, you must clean the anti-rust compound from the barrel, receiver, breech bolt mechanism, and the action/chamber areas. To clean the barrel, refer to the Cleaning Instructions in this Owner’s Manual.
