Loading of the Rifle

ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE RIFLE IS POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION WHEN LOADING! The rifle in detachable magazine version

First push in the full magazine by its front side obliquewards until it stops, then push the rear side (Fig. 3). Grip the rifle with the left hand by its fore-end, place the buttplate against your body and grip the bolt handle with the other hand. Open the bolt by raising the bolt handle and pulling to the rear to its stop. Then push the bolt vigorously to its forward position again and by rotating the bolt handle in a downward direction close the bolt action.

Loading is also possible for single cartridges by directly inserting into the chamber without the use of a magazine.

When the magazine box is loaded, push the bolt vigorously to its forward position, and by rotating the bolt handle in a downward movement close the bolt. This procedure inserts the cartridge into the cartridge chamber, and cocks the striker mechanism. The rifle is now ready to fire. If you do not intend to fire immediately ensure the firearms safety as described further below in the section Safety and its Operation.
