3-A) f orearm Bracket
3-B) Barrel lug. Hinge pin Ixraring surface. Hjector slide. Barrel flats.
3-C) Hinge pin. Cocking lever. Locking bolt.
2 To attach the barrel to the action, grasp the stock s pistol grip with your right hand and anchor the buttstock between your right forearm and right side. With the thumb of your right
hand, move the top lever sideways to the extreme right (See Figure 4).
3 Grasp the barrels in your left hand and engage the barrel lug's circular recess with the action's hinge pin (See Figure 5). Keep pressure on the barrels to keep the hinge pin aligned in the barrel lug's circular recess, and simultaneously rotate the barrels upward, fully closing the actions (See Figure 6).
4 Release the top lever. It should snap back to its central position.
5 Place the butt of the gun's stock against your upper leg to support it. Engage the rear portion of the forearm to the front, radius area of the receiver (See Figure 7).
6 Pivot the forearm up to the barrels tightly, this will cause the takedown lever latch -to engage onto the barrels. It may l>e necessary to depress the takedown lever latch. It should l)e flush with the wood on the underside of the forearm. The forearm and latch can fx' installed in one motion by positioning the forearm as show and tapping the forearm's widest part sharply toward the barrels with the heel of your hand (See Figure 8). the takedown lever should then automatically lock into position.
CAUTION: WHEN ASSEMBLING YOUR CITORI PLUS TRAP GUN, DO NOT USE UNDUE FORCE IN CLOSING THE ACTION. If the actions and barrels are not properly aligned, undue force will only cause them to grind together and score or mar the finely fitted surface. If there appears to be interference, start over at step 2, being careful to mate and align the barrel lug and the receiver hinge pin properly.
Pivot the forearm away from the barrel.
Disassembling your Citori Plus into two parts — the action/buttstock and the barrel/forearm — is ideal for storage or for cleaning and maintenance.

2 Break open the action in the usual manner. Then carefully disengage the barrel lug from the hinge pin and lift the barrels upward out of the action.
3 Reattach the forearm to the barrels as explained previously, except with the barrels separated from the receiver. This is an ideal way to store your shotgun — in two pieces.
