Trigger and Safety Mechanism

The trigger and safety are integrated into the buttstock assembly.

At the front of the trigger guard there is a bolt catch button which is used to hold the bolt open on an empty magazine or when fired "dry." There are safety selector levers on both sides of the grip. The safety/selector levers can be placed in two positions:

"S" = Safe (white index line on the safety/selector lever pointing to the white "S") "F" = Fire (semi-automatic white index line on the safety/selector lever pointing to the red "F")
