Cross Bolt Safety

The cross-bolt "safety" is designed to block the trigger from traveling. In the "off-safe" or "fire" position a red warning band is visible on the left side of the trigger guard alerting the shooter of the gun's ready-to-fire status. To accommodate left-handed shooters, an optional left hand "safety" can be installed by a gunsmith. If an optional left hand "safety" is installed, the red warning band will then appear on the right side of the trigger guard.

DO NOT DEPEND ON THE RED COLOR ALONE TO INDICATE YOUR GUN'S SAFETY STATUS, as time, exposure to the elements, as well as the abrasive action of cleaning agents can erase it. The "safety" is located as shown in Figure 10.

Browning B80 Shotgun

There are two basic methods for getting a loaded shell into the chamber of a B-80. First, the shell can be directly loaded through the ejection port. Second, a shell can be loaded manually from the magazine. Loading of the magazine is the same for both procedures.

CAUTION: AT ALL TIMES DURING THE LOADING PROCEDURE, BE SURE YOUR MUZZLE IS POINTING IN A SAFE DIRECTION AND THE SAFETY IS "ON SAFE."

DO NOT PUT A 20 GAUGE SHELL IN A 12 GAUGE GUN. Store shells of different gauges in completely separate and well-marked containers. See caution number 9 on page 6 of this booklet. Do not store shells of mixed gauges in a common container or in your pockets.

LOADING THROUGH THE EJECTION PORT—

□ Pull the operating handle to the rear until

- the bolt locks in the open position. If the bolt will not lock in rear, press the carrier release. Visually inspect the chamber, carrier, and magazine making sure they are clear.

Push the "safety" from left to right or to the "on safe" position. The red band indicating that the B-80 is ready to fire should not show.

While pointing the muzzle in a safe direction, insert a cartridge of the proper gauge through the ejection port into the chamber and push the cartridge stop / bolt release button to close the action. Your chamber is now loaded. (SeeFigure 11.)

Browning Gauge
Insert the second cartridge through the loading port at bottom of receiver as shown in Figure 12. Note: MAKE SURE THAT THE CARTRIDGE IS PUSHED PAST THE CARTRIDGE STOP, AND THE CARRIER IS FREE TO MOVE. (See Figure 13.)
Browning Gauge

Repeat the above procedure until your gun is fully loaded. Your B-80 will hold three 3 inch or three 2 3/4 inch cartridges in its magazine plus one in its chamber. NOTE: A magazine plug restricting the B-80's magazine capacity to two cartridges is installed at the factory. lnstructions for removing the magazine plug will be found on page 42.

LOADING MANUALLY FROM THE MAGAZINE —

Make sure the muzzle is pointed in a safe direction.

□ Open the bolt and visually inspect the chamber, carrier, and magazine making sure they are clear. NOTE: If the bolt locks

open, push the cartridge stop button, making sure your fingers are clear of the ejection port.

Push the "safety" from left to right or to the "on safe" position. The red band indicating that the B-80 is ready to fire should not show.

Insert cartridge of the proper gauge through the loading port at the bottom of the receiver up into the magazine as shown in Figure 12. Make sure the cartridge is pushed past the cartridge stop and that the carrier is free to move.

Depress the carrier release and cycle the action by pulling the operating handle fully to the rear and releasing it. Your chamber is now loaded.

Repeat step four until magazine is loaded.

CAUTION: AT ALL TIMES DURING THE UNLOADING PROCEDURE, BE SURE YOUR MUZZLE IS POINTING IN A SAFE DIRECTION AND THE SAFETY IS "ON SAFE."

CAUTION: AT ALL TIMES DURING THE UNLOADING PROCEDURE, BE SURE YOUR MUZZLE IS POINTING IN A SAFE DIRECTION AND THE SAFETY IS "ON SAFE."

Pull the operating handle all the way to the rear and eject the chambered cartridge and lower the bolt on the empty chamber. NOTE: It is not necessary or recommended that the remaining cartridges be cycled through the action. That would necessitate depressing the carrier release after each cartridge is ejected. It is easier and safer to invert your B-80, insert your index finger into the loading port and while pushing slightly on the round in the magazine, depress the cartridge stop. (See Figure 14.) Ease each cartridge out until the magazine is empty.

VISUALLY CHECK THE MAGAZINE AND CHAMBER To MAKE SURE THEY ARE EMPTY. Gather ejected cartridges and store

separately from the gun beyond the reach of children.

To change loads in your B-80, simply eject the chambered cartridge by pulling the operating handle all the way to the rear. Insert the desired cartridge (such as a goose load) of the same gauge through the ejection port into the chamber.

CAUTION: Repeated cycling of the bolt's operating handle alone is not assurance that the B-80 is unloaded. There still may be cartridges in the magazine. ALWAYS CONDUCT A THOROUGH VISUAL INSPECTION OF THE CHAMBER, ACTION AND MAGAZINE AFTER UNLOADING.
