caution: the "safety" should be kept in its "on safe" position at all times except when actually firing the rifle. The crossbolt type safety is conveniently located on the trigger guard just rearward of the
trigger. (See Figure 2) This is an ideal location for easy manipulation of the large safety head with the index finger of either hand.
With the safety pushed completely to the right the rifle is ON SAFE and rearward movement of the trigger is completely blocked.
With safety pushed completely to the left the rifle is OFF SAFE and ready to fire. In this FIRE or OFF SAFE position a band of RED is visible on the safety where it projects beyond the left face of the trigger guard.
Whenever a cartridge is chambered the rifle
should be ON SAFE until it is ready to be fired. Note: If a left hand safety is installed these directions are reversed; i.e. the safety is pushed to the left to place the rifle ON SAFE and to the right to place the rifle OFF SAFE.
