1. Misfire. If you have squeezed the trigger and nothing happens, remain in shooting position, pointing the gun in a safe direction. Count to 10, then unload the rifle completely (See "How to Unload").
2. Underpowered shot. A "squib" or underpowered shot, should not occur if the ammunition is clean, dry, and factory loaded. You can tell if a shot is underpowered by the unusually low sound it makes.
•WARNING: Because the bullet may actually still be in the barrel, you must unload completely, and determine, with a cleaning rod, if there is an obstruction. If there is, it should be removed by a qualified gunsmith. Otherwise, personal injury or damage could result. Sighting_
Your rifle has been sighted-in and test-fired at the factory. Due to individual shooting characteristics, however, sighting should be range verified.
1.) Vertical Correction (Elevation)
To raise the point of impact, raise the rear sight, by moving the sight elevator rearward. To lower the point of impact, lower the rear sight, by moving the sight elevator forward. The sight can be raised and lowered by moving the stepped elevator forward and back with your thumb.
2.) Horizontal Correction (Windage)
To move the point of impact to the left, tap the rear sight base to the left. To move the point of impact to the right, tap the rear sight base to the right.
Windage adjustments to the rear sight can be made by gently tapping the dovetail portion of the rear sight in the desired direction.
