Trigger Block Safety: The trigger block safety of the Model SPR 453 shotgun 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. MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND HOW THE SAFETY WORKS BEFORE YOU LOAD OR USE THE SHOTGUN.

The safety mechanism is a cross-bolt-button-style safety located on the trigger housing behind the trigger. To place the safety in the "on" or "safe" position, push the button all the way to the right. (See Picture 7). When in the "on" or "safe" position, the safety blocks the rearward motion of the trigger. To place the safety in the "off" or "fire" position, push the button all the way to the left. When in the "off" or "fire" position, a red ring is exposed on the left side of the safety button. See Picture 8. You have now disengaged the safety and the shotgun is in the ready-to-fire position.

@ warning

The cocking indicator is merely an aid to help you confirm when hunting or shooting that your shotgun is cocked and ready-to-fire. NEVER rely on the status of the cocking indicator to justify careless handling of your shotgun. The ####### indicator may be broken or obscured. Always handle your shotgun as if it were loaded, cocked and ready-to-fire.

@ warning

Before you begin to assemble the shotgun, you MUST (1) look down the barrel from the beech end toward the muzzle end to make sure there is no ammunition in the chamber or obstruction in the barrel (See Picture 17), and (2) make sure the safety is in the "ON" or "safe" position.

Picture 17

Your shotgun was shipped with the barrel detached from the receiver assembly. To assemble the shotgun, follow these instructions:

1. When you open the box of your next Model SPR 453 shotgun, the barrel is separated from the stock and receiver of the shotgun. To attach the barrel, first remove the stock and receiver from the plastic bag. Then unscrew the forend cap. (See Pictures 18 and 19).

Remington Spr453 Magazine Extension

The magazine cap is under spring pressure. Note: After assembly of the shotgun the spring in the magazine tube may become twisted. This will cause a decrease in magazine tube capacity. If you load and unload the magazine tube the spring will untwist and the capacity should be as defined in the manual.

6. Screw on the forend cap so that the forend is held firmly in place and flush against the receiver. (See Picture 24).

Remington 710 Receiver Insert Assembly

7. With the forend and the barrel in place and the forend cap securely In place, depress the carrier latch button and the bolt will slide into the barrel extension (Note: If you see any portion of the barrel extension protruding from the receiver after you released the bolt or if there is a gap between the forend and the receiver you have not properly assembled the shotgun). If the bolt does not slide forward or you have gaps or the barrel extension protrudes from the receiver, reverse the assembly procedures and start over again making sure that the barrel is fully inserted into the receiver and that the forend is fully in place. If you still cannot assemble the shotgun correctly, take the shotgun to the dealer where you bought the shotgun or to a qualified gunsmith for assistance.

8. Once the shotgun is assembled (or if you cannot fully assemble the shotgun and plan to carry it somewhere for assistance) engage the trigger block safety and keep it engaged in the "ON' or "safe" position until you are ready to fire the shotgun. Keep the safety "on" no matter if the gun is loaded or unloaded.

Note!

Locking Block Placement: During assembly or reassembly make sure the locking lug is in placed as pictured. See Picture 25. Make sure that the firing pin spring and the firing pin washer are held rearward by the locking lug. (See Picture 26

^ warning: Do not load the shotgun until you are ready to fire.

Loading an d Unl oading Your Shotgun TO LOAD:

1. Make sure the ammunition that you are using is the correct size and gauge. The barrel is marked with the gauge and chamber size. A barrel marked 3 V2" (89mm) will use 2 3/4" (70mm), 3" (76mm) or 3 V2" (89mm) shotshells of the correct gauge as marked on the barrel.

2. Visually inspect the chamber and barrel for obstructions by pulling back the bolt until it locks back. Note that if the bolt will not lock back then push the Carrier Stop Button (see Picture 13) rearward and retry locking the bolt rearward. The chamber and barrel should be free of oil or grease or obstructions. (See Picture 27).

4. Turn the shotgun upside down so that the barrel is pointing toward the ground and you are looking at the carrier latch. Now depress the carrier latch and insert up to five (5) - 2 3/4" cartridges or five (5) - 3" cartridges or (4) - 3 V2" cartridges into the magazine tube. Note that if the plastic spring cap is in the magazine tube, then the magazine capacity is decreased by one round. (See Picture 28).

Loading Shotgun Magazine Tube

Loading an d Unl oading Your Shotgun (cont'd) TO UNLOAD:

1. Make sure the trigger block safety is engaged and your fingers are away from the trigger. Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Draw back the bolt until a cartridge is ejected or the bolt has traveled to the rear fully. (See Picture 29). If there was no cartridge in the chamber, nothing will be ejected. Slide the bolt back forward until it is fully closed. Repeat the drawing back of the bolt while depressing the carrier stop button until no more rounds are ejected from the shotgun.

Picture 29

2. When you have ejected the last round from the shotgun, pull the bolt fully to the rear. The bolt should lock in the rearward position. With the bolt locked back, visually inspect the chamber to insure that it is empty. You should also look down into the receiver through the ejection port and verify that the magazine tube is empty. (See Picture 30).

Picture 30

If for some reason a cartridge in the magazine tube will not rise up into the chamber to be ejected, after repeated attempts to manually cycle the shotgun, perform the following steps: A) Manually close the bolt by depressing the bolt release button.

B) Turn over the shotgun so that the trigger guard is facing you (upward). Depress the carrier latch button and then depress the carrier latch. (See Picture 31).

C) With the same finger that you are depressing the carrier latch, depress the Shell Latch. The Shell Latch is located on your left hand side with the shotgun in the upside down position. It is the piece of metal that should be holding the round In the magazine tube. The cartridge should slide up Picture31 and out of the magazine with your guidance. Note: the cartridge is under spring tension. Repeat this process until the magazine tube is empty. Turn the shotgun over and lock the bolt back and verify that the gun is empty. If you had to follow the procedure for a cartridge that was not being released from the magazine tube, make sure the shotgun is empty and let a qualified gunsmith inspect the shotgun before you load or use the shotgun again

Remember that a live round is in the chamber.

^warning

During firing, the bolt cocking handle travels rearward with considerable force and velocity. Do not allow any object to enter or obstruct its path.

5. Once you fire all the rounds from the shotgun, the bolt should lock open upon firing of the last cartridge. Never rely on the locked back bolt as a signal that the gun is empty. ALWAYS visually check the chamber to insure that the gun is empty. It is also possible that the bolt will not lock back after the firing of the last cartridge. If this occurs, open the bolt manually and lock it to the rear. Note: If the bolt will still not lock back then push the Carrier Stop Button rearward and retry locking the bolt rearward. Use you eyes to verify that the gun is completely empty.

^warning

Once you have stopped firing the auto loading shotgun, immediately push the cross trigger block safety back to the "on" or "safe" position. Then follow the unloading instructions above while keeping the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.

GAS SYSTEM ADJUSTMENT: The Model SPR 453 shotgun has a unique self-regulating gas system. It is preset at the factory to function reliably with a wide range of 12 gauge ammunition ranging from 12 Ga./2 3/4" (1 1/4 oz.) shells to 12 Ga./3.1/2" shells. This system also allows you to fine tune the function of the shotgun with the gas system nut. By adjusting the gas system nut, you can make your shotgun function over the complete range of 12 Ga. ammunition and set the shotgun for optimum function for the user. The gas system nut allows you to customize the function of the shotgun to your requirements without additional parts or kits

GAS CYLINDER NUT: The gas cylinder nut is located under the barrel on the front end of the gas cylinder. (See Picture 35). The gas cylinder nut retains the valve spring with the valve, which provide the action of the shotgun with light loads as well as with heavy loads.

Remington Spr Gass Valve
Picture 35

Note: For the first 100 rounds. use 1 1/4 oz. loads or greater for break-in. Your shotgun was set at the factory to use 12 Ga./3 V2" steel shot to 12 Ga./ 2 W (1 1/4 oz.). After break-in, if you wish to use lead or tungsten based shot 12 Ga./3 V2" rounds, then you must adjust the gas cylinder nut two turns counter-clockwise. If you wqish to use loads lower than 12 Ga./2 3/4" (1 1/4 oz.) you must adjust the gas cylinder nut as required by turning it clockwise.

Never adjust the gas cylinder nut more than two complete turns in any direction. For reference use the notch on front of the gas cylinder. The nut should be visible through the notch and at the most should fit flush the front end of the gas cylinder. To set the shotgun back to factory setting, see the mark on the gas cylinder and adjust as required. (See Picture 35).

Note: Screw the gas cylinder nut but do not detach the barrel from the receiver. (See Picture 36).

Picture 36

MAGAZINE PLUG PLACEMENT: The wooden or plastic rod enclosed with your shotgun is a magazine plug and can be placed inside the magazine tube spring from the cap end. The rod prevents the magazine follower from moving the full length of travel.

It is present for one round in the magazine without the plastic spring cap. You will see a mark on the rod which is where you would cut the rod if you want two rounds in the magazine without the plastic spring cap. If you want to use the plastic spring cap and the magazine plug you will have to cut the rod at the mark.

Instructions For Disassembly Of The Auto Loading Shotgun

1. Make sure the combination rifle/shotgun is unloaded (FOLLOW UNLOADING INSTRUCTIONS) and pointed in a safe direction.

2. Make sure the cross trigger block safety Is engaged in the "ON" or "SAFE" position. (Red band will not show). (See Picture 37).

Picture 37

3. With the bolt in the forward position, unscrew the forend cap and remove the forend. Push the Carrier Stop Button rearward and move the to the rear slightly and hold it out of battery. Then grasp the barrel and remove the barrel by pulling the barrel and barrel extension out of the receiver. (See Picture 38).

4. Use the back end of an empty cartridge or a flathead screwdriver or yor fingers to remove the Bolt Cocking Handle. Insert the screwdriver or back of empty cartridge into the notch and pry up handle and remove from the bolt or grasp the handle firmly and pull out and away from the receiver. (See Picture 39).

5. With the cocking handle removed from the bolt you now can grasp the gas piston and slide the bolt and action bar forward and remove the assembly from the magazine tube and receiver. Be careful because once the bolt is removed from the receiver all the pieces from the assembly are free to seperate. We suggest you keep the gun with the bolt up when you remove the assembly does not seperate. See locking block placement section. (See Picture 40).

6. The trigger assembly can be removed with the barrel and bolt removed or without the barrel and bolt removed. To remove the trigger assembly, remove the two pins that hold the trigger assembly in place and pull the trigger assembly from the receiver. The pins can be removed with a hammer and a punch. (See Picture 41).

Remington Spr453 Parts

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 shotgun 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 Shotgun

A. Follow procedures for unloading shotgun as described previously.

B. Follow procedures for disassembly of shotgun as described previously.

C. Materials needed to clean this shotgun 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).

@ warning

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 barrel and chamber to remove any powder and lead residue in the bore. Always and lastly, swab the interior of the barrel 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, barrel, 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 shotgun.

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.

To Cl ean and Maintain Your Shotgun (cont'd)

GAS PORTS: The two holes in the barrel gas porting ring are the gas ports which regulate the auto-loading function of the shotgun. (See Picture 42). These holes must remain open and clear for the shotgun to function properly. Make sure these holes are cleaned after each use. Also clean the barrel gas porting ring.

GAS PISTON ASSEMBLY: The gas piston assembly is on the magazine tube. (See Picture 43). The gas piston assembly must be cleaned and lightly oiled after each use.

DANGER - Ammunition Warning

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 shotgun with faulty, non-standard, remanufactured, hand loaded or reloaded ammunition or with cartridges other than factory cartridges for which the shotgun was originally chambered.

Lubrication Warning

Firing a shotgun with oil, grease or any other material even partially obstructing the bore may result in damage to the shotgun 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 shotgun 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.

Optional Choke Tubes ^warning

Never install or remove choke tubes while the firearm is loaded. Only install or remove choke tubes with the firearm unloaded, the action open and the trigger block safely engaged.

Screw in Chokes Symbols/Markings

(This is an option - not all Model 100 shotguns have this feature)

The end of the choke tubes are marked with slashes to identify the choke construction: / - Full

// - Improved Modified /// - Modified //// - Improved Cylinder CI - Cylinder

@ warning

MAKE SURE YOU FULLY TIGHTEN THE CHOKE TUBE.

Shooting with a loose choke tube can cause damage to your shotgun.

Additional Information On Screw Choke Tubes:

A. Only tighten or loosen choke tubes with flat key wrench supplied with shotgun. Note: wrench (and extra choke tube or tubes if supplied) are under the cardboard in front of the shotgun receiver in the box.

B. Never shoot the shotgun with a partially installed choke tube.

C. Model SPR 453 auto loading shotguns are available with fixed choke or screw choke barrels. There are two types of screw chokes available: lead shot choke tubes and steel shot choke tubes. When installed, steel shot choke tubes protrude approximately 3/4" from the muzzle end of the barrel and the mating lip will be flush with the end of the barrel. When installed, lead shot choke tubes fit flush with or slightly below the muzzle end of the barrel. If you have lead shot choke tubes and intend to shoot steel shot cartridges or slugs, then you must use only the IC or Cylinder tubes. DO NOT fire steel shot or slugs in Modified, Improved Modified or Full lead shot choke tubes. If you have steel shot choke tubes, you may fire steel shot cartridges through any of those choke tubes. DO NOT fire slugs in Modified, Improved Modified or Full lead shot choke tubes or steel shot choke tubes.

D. Correctly installed choke tubes: Lead shot choke tubes should fit flush or slightly below the muzzle end of the barrel. Steel shot choke tubes will protrude out from the barrel about 3/4" and the mating lip will be flush with barrel end.

E. Before using the shotgun make sure that the choke tubes are installed correctly.

F. Keep choke tubes lubricated and installed. Never fire the gun without a choke tube installed. Handle choke tubes carefully since the leading edge is very thin.

Additional Information On Screw Choke Tubes: (cont'd)

Notes on Shot Material and Chokes:

1. Shells using Bismuth® or Tungsten-Matrix® shot are subject to the same barrel and choke tube limitations as lead shot. Shells using Tungsten-Iron shot or Hevi-Shot® are subject to the same barrel and choke tube limitations as steel shot.

2. On fixed choke guns, shells loaded with steel, Tungsten-Iron or Hevi-Shot® should be fired only in IC or Cylinder barrels. DO NOT fire steel, Tungsten-Iron or Hevi-Shot® shells in fixed barrels with Modified, Improved Modified or Full choke barrels. Lead, Bismuth® and Tungsten-Matrix® may be fired in all fixed choke barrels.

3. On fixed choke guns, slugs may be fired in only IC and Cylinder barrels. DO NOT fire slugs in fixed choke barrels with Modified, Improved Modified or Full chokes.

If you would like to buy extra choke tubes (skeet, trap, extra full, etc.) call (321)-639-1432.
