Trigger Block Safety: The safety mechanism of the Model SPR 22 rifle provides protection against accidental and unintentional discharge under normal usage when properly engaged and in good working order. The safety mechanism is not a substitute for following the rules of safe gun handling. Do not disengage the safety unless you are ready to fire the rifle. WARNING: make sure you understand how the safety works before you load or use the rifle.
The safety mechanism is a tang-style safety button located behind the top lever. (See Picture 8) To place the safety in the "on" or "safe" position, pull the button all the way to the rear. When in the "on" or "safe" position, the safety blocks the rearward motion of the trigger(s). To place the safety in the "off" or "fire" position, push the slide button all the way forward. When in the "off" or "fire" position, a red dot is exposed behind the slide button. You have now disengaged the safety, and the rifle is in the ready-to-fire position. (See Picture 9).
The rifle is designed to and WILL FIRE when the trigger is pulled and the safety mechanism is in the "off" or "fire" position.
External Control Parts (cont'd)
Top Lever: The top lever is located just forward of the safety mechanism. (See Picture 10) The top lever Is used to break open the action to load and/or unload the rifle, and to assemble and disassemble the rifle. To break open the action, fully push the top lever to the right. (See Picture 10).
When operating the top lever, you must: (1) make sure the safety mechanism is in the "on" or "safe" position; (2) keep your fingers away from the trigger(s) and outside of the trigger guard; and (3) control the direction of the muzzle of the rifle.
Trigger(s): SPR 22 side-by-side rifles from Remington1" are available in a double-trigger configuration. (See Picture 11).
Double-trigger Model SPR 22 rifles are patterned after classic side-by-side firearms with two triggers. The front trigger always fires the right barrels. The back trigger always fires the left barrels.
Never pull the trigger until you are actually ready to fire. Keep your fingers off the trigger and outside of the trigger guard until you are ready to pull the trigger and fire the rifle. When opening and closing the action and when engaging or disengaging the safety mechanism, make sure your fingers are outside of the trigger guard and away from the trigger.
Never fire a double-trigger rifle by using two fingers because you may inadvertently pull both triggers at the same time resulting in a near simultaneous firing of both barrels. Use your index finger to pull one of the triggers to fire the first shot. After that shot is fired, release the trigger and move your index finger to the other trigger to fire the second shot.
External Control Parts (cont'd)
Extractors: Model SPR 22 rifles are equipped with extractors for extracting the fired rounds when the action is opened. The extractor is located in the back center of the barrels, and is a single post extractor which will extract both rounds fired or unfired when the action is opened. (See Picture 12, 13)
The Forend: The forend is the wooden grip piece piece which attaches to the barrels assembly and locks the barrels assembly into the receiver. (See Picture 14) The forend has a mechanical latch which is used to lock and unlock the forend to the barrels assembly. Never attempt to fire your rifle without having the forend locked in its proper position on the barrels assembly.

Your rifle was shipped with the barrels assembly (barrels and forend) detached from the receiver assembly. To assemble the rifle, follow these instructions:
1. Remove the plastic bags or wrapping covering the parts. Then remove the forend from the barrels by pulling outward on the mechanical lever in the lower midsection of the forend and tipping the forend out and away from the barrels while pulling the lever out. Never force the forend off the barrels. (See Picture 18).
2. Now push the top lever to the right and hold with one hand. Do not force the top lever. (See Picture 19).
3. Holding the barrels with one hand, engage the lower locking lug located on the lower portion of the barrels with the receiver. The half round cut out on the lower locking lug fits around the round bar in the forward lower portion of the slot in the receiver. With the barrels engaged into the receiver, swing the barrels up into the locked position. The top lever should move back to the center once the barrels are locked into position. Note: The top lever may not move completely to the center on a new rifle until the gun is broken in. The top lever must move at least three quarters of its full travel distance. (See Pictures 20, 21, 22).

This firearm was manufactured to properly perform with the original parts as designed. It is your duty to make sure any parts you buy are correctly installed and that neither replacements nor originals are altered or changed. Your firearm has many parts that must relate correctly to other parts for safe and accurate operation. Putting a gun together wrong or with modified parts can result in a damaged gun, or personal injury or death to you or others. Always let a qualified gunsmith work on your gun or at least, check any work not performed by a gunsmith. Firearms safety is your primary concern. THE GUN OWNER MUST ACCEPT FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CORRECT REASSEMBLY AND FUNCTIONING OF THE FIREARM AFTER ANY DISASSEMBLY OR REPLACEMENT OF PARTS.
To Cl ean and Maintain Your Rifle
A. Follow procedures for unloading rifle as described previously.
B. Follow procedures for disassembly of rifle as described previously.
C. Materials needed to clean this rifle are: a cleaning rod, cotton bore patches, brass bore brush, powder solvent (such as Remington BriteBore™), a small soft brush and good quality gun oil (such as Rem® Oil).
Lead or lead compounds are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, reproductive toxicity, and other serious physical injury. Those who clean firearms should take protective measures to avoid contact or exposure to such chemicals.
D. Using the bore brush with powder solvent, scrub the interior of the barrels and chamber to remove any powder and lead residue in the bore. Always and lastly, swab the interior of the barrels with a cotton patch with gun oil to coat and protect the bore and chambers from rust and corrosion.
E. Any powder fouling on the firing wall, barrels, etc. can be easily cleaned with a brush and powder solvent.
F. All external surfaces should be wiped down with a light coat of rust preventative. Avoid using too much oil as powder, dust or other foreign material may get trapped in the oil. This could lead to congealed deposits which may interfere with the safe and reliable operation of this rifle.
G. USE CAUTION while using solvents in gun bore cleaning. Prolonged or excess contact with solvents can damage the gun's bluing and finish. Be sure to wipe away all excess solvent and then lubricate with oil.
H. A gun should be cleaned after firing. In addition, external parts should be wiped with an oiled cloth after handling. A light oil is ordinarily all that is necessary in cleaning if the gun has not been fired or fired very little. If a gun is used frequently, it must be cleaned after each firing and regularly serviced by a professional gunsmith. If the gun has been stored, remove all excess oil and/or grease before firing. Always check to be sure that no cleaning patch or other obstruction remains in the bore or chambers before firing.
Firearms may be damaged and serious personal injury or death to the shooter or bystanders may result from any condition which contributes to the generation of excessive pressure or uncontrolled release of gas within the firearm. Such adverse conditions can be caused by bore or chamber obstructions, propellant powder overloads or by defective, incorrect or improperly loaded and assembled cartridge components. Even the strongest firearm can be blown up as a result of excessive pressure. It is extremely dangerous to use a cartridge whose pressure is greater than that developed by cartridges loaded to industry standards.
Ammunition (Cartridges) Notice
We specifically disclaim responsibility for any damage, injury or death occurring in connection with or as the result of the use of the rifle with faulty, non-standard, remanufactured, hand loaded or reloaded ammunition or with cartridges other than factory cartridges for which the rifle was originally chambered.
Firing a rifle with oil, grease or any other material even partially obstructing the bore may result in damage to the rifle and personal injury to the shooter and those nearby. Do not spray or apply lubricants directly on ammunition. If the powder charge of a cartridge is affected by the lubricant, they may not fully ignite yet the energy from the primer and/or powder may still be sufficient to push the projectile or wad into the bore where it may become lodged. Firing a subsequent cartridge into the obstructed bore will damage the rifle and may cause personal injury to the shooter and those nearby. Use lubricants properly. You are responsible for the proper care and maintenance of your firearm and ammunition.
