BEWARE OF DANGEROUS PROCEDURES

• Be sure the cam pin is installed in the bolt group. If it isn't, your rifle can st ill fire and will explode,

• If you're using the blank firing attachment, don't use any other ammo except the blank round M200 (marked on each box of 20 rounds).

• DO NOT exchange or switch bolt assemblies from one M16A2 to another. Doing so may result in injury to, or death of, personnel.

• If your rifle stops firing with a live round in the chamber of a hot barrel (misfire), remove the round fast. However, if you cannot remove it within 10 seconds, remove magazine and wait 15 minutes with the rifle pointing in a safe direction. This way you won't get hurt by a possible round cooking-off. Regardless, keep your face away from the ejection port while clearing a hot chamber.

• Use only authorized ammo that is manufactured to U.S. or NATO specifications.

• If your bolt fails to unlock and you try to free it by banging the buttstock on the ground keep yourself clear of the muzzle,

• If there's water in the barrel, don't fire the rifle. It could explode.

• If a noticeable difference in sound or recoil is experienced, STOP FlRING. Either condition could indicate an incomplete powder burn and/or a bullet stuck in the bore
