1-6. GENERAL DISASSEMBLY
General disassembly is removing and replacing the eight major groups (Figure 1-9, page 1-12). The unit armorer performs detailed disassembly. Disassembly beyond what is explained in this manual is prohibited, except by ordnance personnel. During general disassembly, each part is placed on a clean flat surface such as a table or mat. This aids in assembly in reverse order and avoids the loss of parts. Before disassembly, the bipod legs must be released from under the receiver and placed into the bipod mode position.
