A Selector Lever

3 The selector lever has three settings which may be selected depending on the firing situation. See

5 • Safe. The selector lever in the safe position prevents the rifle from firing.

6 • Semi. The selector lever in the semi position allows one shot to be fired with each pull of

7 the trigger.

8 • Burst. The selector lever in the burst position allows the rifle to continue its cycle of

9 operation until interrupted by the burst cam. With each pull of the trigger, the burst cam

10 limits the maximum number of rounds fired to three. The burst cam is not "self-indexing."

11 If burst is selected, the burst cam does not automatically reset to the first shot position of

12 the 3-round burst. One, two, or three shots may be fired on the first pull of the trigger.

13 Each subsequent pull of the trigger results in a complete 3-round burst unless the trigger is

14 released before the cycle is complete. If the trigger is released during the burst and the

15 3-round cycle is interrupted, the next pull of the trigger fires the rounds remaining in the

16 interrupted 3-round cycle.
