DESCRIPTION OF ASSEMBLIES Assembly 1 Receiver with barrel, cocking mechanism and sights

The receiver connects the barrel, cocking mechanism and sights. In addition, all assemblies are either contained in the receiver or attached to it (Fig. 4).

The barrel is press-fitted into the barrel extension and lixed in place by means of pins. The cocking mechanism is located above the barrel and is employed for manually cocking and loading the weapon and for securing the bolt in its rearmost position.

The sights consist of the front sight and rotary rear sight. The rear sight has 4 aperture positions; the apertures, which differ in diameter, all correspond to a uniform sight setting (sighting shot) for firing at ranges of 25 and 100 m. Being able to select a particular aperture diameter permits perfect individual aiming by means of the rear sight aperture, front sight and the outer circumference of the front sight cover. The rotary rear sight can be adjusted for elevation and windage.
