A misfire or u n us ual sound u p o n firing rs a sig r al to cease firing ancttc examine the chamber and bore, ft there is any obstruction, clear the obstruction and cean the bore and chamber before firing


When shooting, fijD eye and eai proiec:ion is mandatory at all times. Shooters and spectators must wear shooting g asses and sound suppressor to preverl eye injury and h&anng loss. Vision oss anc hearing impairment can occuTwi'h on y one moment of ron-orotection.


Any bo re obstruct ion, even if it is only partly blocked may cause the gun to blow op if it is fired, or may cause damage to the gun such as a bulged barrel. To avoid injury cr death to the shooter or bystanders, check the barrel before shooting or if a shot does not sound normal.


Aiways keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction! Never atterripl to load or unload any firearm inside a vehicle, bunding cr other confined space (except a properly constructed shooting range). Enclosed areas frequently offer no completely safe direction in which to point the firearm.

INFORMATION FIGURES (Direction for Assembly)

Fig 1; When you open the box of yuur new MP 153 shotgun the barrel is separated from the main portion of that shotgun. To attach the barrel "irst remove the stock and receiver from the plastic bag. Then unscrew forend cap.

Warning the magazine the magazine cap is under sprirg pressure. Note: After assembly of the shotgun the spring in (he magazine tube may become twisted. This will cause a decrease in magazine tube capacity. If you load and unload the magazine tube the spring will untwist and the capacity should be as defined in the manual.

If the plastic spring cap is not installed in the magazine tube then use srrailpin in the hoie in the end of the magazine tube to hold the spring during removal of the cap., Simply unscrew the cap until you seethe "ioie in the tube, insert pin thru hole to hold spring.

With the barrel extension partially inserted into the receiver between the boit and the receiver, pull the bolt cocking handle to the rear so that the boll is locked back. Now completely insert the barrel extension into the receiver,


You must place the gas system washer in front of the barrel lug. Thus the gas system washer is between the barrel lug and the forenti as pictured (Fig A)

Make sure that the forend is compl&lely seated arouod the ma ga t\ne tu , c ar re1. an d th e rec eiver (note: th e forc-n ci must seat flusn with the receiver). Fig 6: Screw on the forend cap so that the forend is held firmly in place and flush against the receiver.

With the forend in place and the barrel in place and the forend cap securely in place, depress the carrier latch button and I he bof: will slice into the barrel extension (Note- If you see any portion of the barrel extension protruding from the receiver after you released the boll or if there is a gap between the tore arm and the receiver you have not properly assembled tne shotgun), lithe bolt does not slideforward or you have gapt or the barrel extension protrudes from the receiver, reverse the assembly procedures and start over again making sure that :he barrel is iulfy Inserted into the receiver and that the forend is fully in place.
