In conventional gun terminology the position and movement of gun parts are described as they occur with the gun horizontal and in normal firing position. The muzzle is forward or front, the butt stock is rearward or rear, the trigger is downward or underneath, and the sights are upward or on top. When the lever is closed or parallel to the stock grip the bolt is "closed" or "locked"; when the lever is down the bolt is "open" or "unlocked."
For general nomenclature, refer to Figure 1.
The serial number of your rifle can be found on the right side of the receiver, toward the rear.
