You may also use the rifle as a single-shot by placing one cartridge at a time directly into the chamber (or into the magazine) and closing the bolt, leave the safety "on"!
1. Point the rifle in a safe direction! The safety should be kept "on"!
2. Lift the bolt handle and gently pull the bolt to the rear. This will extract any unFired cartridge present in (j) the chamber. Remove this cartridge from the rifle and leave the bolt open.
3. Empty the magazine from below (Fig. 9). Hold one hand loosely under the floor plate to restrain it, and depress the Floor plate catch 141. The hinged Floor plate will pop open, allowing the cartridges to be dumped into your hand. Look in the magazine and chamber to be sure that all the cartridges have been removed.
