ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE RIFLE IS POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION!
- open the magazine box floorplate (Fig. 4) and drop released cartridges into your hand (in the detachable magazine version, remove the magazine in the manner as already described - see operating instructions, removal of the magazine)
- move the safety to its "Safety-Off" position in order that the bolt can be opened. If your rifle is fitted with a three-position safety, shift it to its mid-position which allows the bolt operations, but the trigger mechanism remains on safe
- open the bolt and check to ensure that the cartridge has been extracted from the chamber and ejected
- close the bolt
- depress the trigger (dry fire)
