BEFORE CLEANING OR REMOVING THE SPEEDFEED STOCK:
a. Move the safety button fully rearward to the "ON" (SAFE) position and keep muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
b. Open the action, visually and physically check chamber, elevator and magazine tube to be certain the firearm is unloaded.
The stock springs and followers should be removed periodically and the tube and parts cleaned to remove debris. Do not lubricate these parts.
The recoil pad on the speedfeed stock is under spring pressure. Remove rounds from storage tubes to minimize the spring pressure. Use caution when removing recoil pad screws to prevent injury to yourself or others around you.
a) Loose and remove the two recoil pad screws by turning them counterclockwise.
b) Remove recoil pad, springs and plastic followers. Place on a clean dry surface.
