Method 2: The magazine in the weapon is empty.
The bolt has been held in its rear position by the bolt catch.
1 • Set the safety/fire selector lever at "Safe."
2 • Push the magazine catch forward with the thumb and remove the empty magazine (see Figure 22 below).
3 • Insert a loaded magazine into the magazine well until the magazine clearly engages. Tug on the magazine to ensure it is securely engaged.
4 • Swivel the cocking lever out, pull it all the way to the rear and release (see Figure 20).
The weapon is now loaded and set on "Safe."
