For ease of handling, its weight has been reduced without reducing the barrel or altering its accuracy.
- The reduced angle of rotation of the handle of the bolt (60°) allows shots to be fired in rapid succession.
- The handle of the bolt is set low, providing a clear view of the target.
- The shape of the handle is perfectly adapted to your hand.
The new (patented) three lug bolt design, allows a saving in weight without loss of strength.
The safety catch positioned within easy reach of your thumb and the removable magazine attached to the hinged magazine floor plate make your rifle even easier to use.
The top of the receiver, with its flat topped, low receiver is designed for optimum scope mounting.
Recommendations before use
All metal parts of the gun, have been greased ex works to protect them against corrosion.
Before shooting your first cartridge, it is essential that you carefully clean the bore of the barrel : it must be dry to avoid excessive pressure and deviation of the point of impact. Pass a cleaning rod with a piece of flannel wrapped around its end, down the barrel from the chamber end.
If you consider it is necessary, wipe all excess oil from the other parts of the gun using a soft cloth.

These technical specifications are given for information only. We reserve the right to modify them at any time without prior warning. The gun is delivered with the bolt removed from the rifle.they must therefore first be assembled.
Insertion of bolt
In order to insert the bolt into the receiver, first ensure that the safety is not on and that the firing pin is cocked.
1) Placing safety in the off safe position
Phe safety lever must be pushed forward, in order to free the passage of the bolt. See "Safety".
2) Cocking the firing pin
When viewed from above, the indicator must project from the nut guide (fig. 1). Viewed from below, the nut will be housed in the cocking recess. Uncocked = jig. 2.
Po cock the firing pin : wedge the projecting part of the nut against the edge of a table, pull the body of the bolt sharply downwards while at the same time rotating the nut guide anti-clockwise until the nut slots into its cocking recess.
Check that the lugs of the bolt and the blank are aligned.
Insert the bolt into the receiver, taking care not to scratch the cheek piece of the stock. Push the bolt all the way towards the front and lock the gun by swinging the handle downward.
Check that the safety is not on (see " Safety") and swing the bolt handle upward. Pull the bolt back until it touches the bolt stop. Press the bolt release lever (fig. 3) and remove the bolt from the receiver, taking care not to damage the stock.
The safety lever is situated on the top of the grip, within easy reach of the thumb.
When it is pushed to the front, in the "off safe" position, it covers the letter "S" and uncovers a red dot indicating that the gun is ready to fire (fig. 4). When it is pulled back into the "on safe" position with the red dot hidden and the letter "S" displayed, it blocks the trigger and the bolt (fig. 5). The blocking the bolt is thus another way to check that the safety of your EUROBOLT is actually on.
The nut of your rifle comprises an extension that protrudes from the nut guide when the firing pin is cocked (fig. 2). This indicator is clearly visible and can also be felt with the thumb.
Your rifle has been adjusted in the factory to give you a positive, short trigger action and a trigger pull of about 1,8 kg, compatible with providing an excellent level of safety against accidental firing.
We have, however, fitted the trigger mechanism with a means of adjusting the trigger pull in order to adapt the rifle to your shooting style. This adjustment should only be carried out by a gunsmith.
The rifle is equipped with the "Trigger Set" system that allows you to obtain a very sensitive trigger pull. Please carefully read the following instractions.
Caution : this trigger pull is of the order of only 300 g, and is only intended for informed users.
We recommend that you first test the Trigger Set with the gun unloaded, in order to get a feeling for the sensitivity of the trigger.
To activate the Trigger Set, cock the rifle and push the trigger forward until it locks. The rifle is now ready for firing.
An additional safety disconnects the Trigger Set when the bolt action lever is operated. The trigger pull is set by means of the screw situated under the trigger (fig. 6).
Your rifle is fitted with a removable magazine that attaches to a hinged magazine floor plate. The magazine can hold 4 standard caliber cartridges or 3 magnum cartridges. Inserting an additional cartridge directly into the chamber brings the total capacity of the gun to 5 and 4 cartridges respectively.
Before loading, place the safety in the on safety position and point your gun in a safe direction.
Once the magazine release lever has been pushed towards the front of the trigger guard (fig. 7), causing the magazine to swing down, you can either directly refill it (fig. 8), or replace it with a full one.
For this, grasp the top of the empty magazine and release it by pulling on its locking spring (fig. 9). The replacement magazine is installed by inserting its bottom in the socket in the magazine floor plate and pushing it against the locking spring before swinging the floor plate back up into place.
Before unloading, point your gun in a safe direction. Open the mechanism by operating the bolt in order to eject any cartridge that might still remain in the chamber, and check inside. Next, swing down the hinged magazine floor plate and push back the bolt. Then, remove the magazine and empty the cartridges from it. Replace the magazine in the magazine floor plate and close it back up.
For maintaining your rifle, like for any gun, we strongly recommend that you use only a good quality fine oil for guns. Legia Spray cleans, lubricates and protects. Silicon, lanolin, machine greases and oils, etc. are to be avoided.
After each use, maintain your gun as follows :
1. Before starting, check that the gun is unloaded.
2. Remove the bolt. Drop the magazine and remove from the magazine floor plate.
3. Spray Legia Spray inside the barrel and allow to dry for a few minutes before inserting a cleaning rod with a piece of flannel on its end via the chambre. Once the barrel is properly cleaned, pass again with a new piece of flannel impregnated with oil to protect it until the next time it is used.
4. Spray the product on the external metal parts, not forgetting the bolt and the magazine, and wipe off any excess with a clean, dry cloth.
5. The wood of the stock and fore arm tends to absorb moisture from the atmosphere, especially when the weather is wet. In order to avoid unwanted distortion, the rifle should be stored in a dry, lightly ventilated space well away from any source of heat. This will allow the wood to gradually loose the moisture absorbed without deforming. For proper care of the wood, regularly apply a coat of Legia special wood Spray or failing that a little linseed oil.
