SETTINGS FOR SHOOTING 2 3/4-INCH MAGNUM, STEEL SHOT, AND HIGH VELOCITY LOADS —
THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS ARE ONLY FOR 2 3/4-INCH 12, SWEET 16 AND 20 GAUGE MODELS, NOT FOR THE 3" MAGNUM 12 GAUGE OR 3" MAGNUM 20 GAUGE SEMI-AUTOMATIC. SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS ARE PROVIDED FOR THOSE MODELS IN A SEPARATE MANUAL.
A great deal of attention has gone into the design of the recoil absorbing mechanism to minimize the recoil of the magnum loads as much as possible. It is a mechanism specially arranged for those loads. As shown, it consists of a bronze friction piece and one coned friction ring (See Figure 9).
1 With the butt of the stock down and the magazine tube pointing up, one friction ring is placed on top of the spring with the beveled surface UP.
NOTE: If steel shot loads will not function with the heavy load setting, then set friction ring adjustment for light load settings.
