General Safety Instructions

To avoid injury to your eyes, use care when removing and installing spring-loaded parts. When using solid film lubricant or dichloromethane, be sure the area is well ventilated. When using P-C-111, avoid skin contact. If P-C-111 comes in contact with the skin, wash thoroughly with running water. Using a good lanolin base cream after exposure to the compound is helpful. Using gloves and protective equipment is recommended. Dry cleaning solvent is flammable and toxic and should be used in a well-ventiliated area. The use of rubber gloves is necessary to protect the skin when washing rifle parts.

Upper receiver and barrel assembly may be equipped with low light level front and rear sights. The front sight contains radioactive material. If so equipped, do not insert metal objects into the post slot or otherwise treat roughly to cause breakage of the radioactive element.
