Retract bolt slowly and remove fired cartridge case. Clear weapon and check for unbumed powder grains in the receiver or bore and for a bullet stuck in the bore.

FIRING.

a. First (or maybe last) trigger pull may not fire more than one or two rounds.

NOTE

This is not a malfunction.

b. Quickly pull trigger again all the way to the rear and hold to get a full three-round burst. This is called "double squeezing" the trigger. This technique is often necessary if firing is continued after changing magazines or switching from semi to burst.

NOTE

If you release the trigger before all three rounds are fired, your next pull on the trigger will fire only the remaining rounds from the previous burst. Once you squeeze off a burst, keep the squeeze on until the three-round cycle is complete.
