22 (6) Clearing the Ejection Port. Ensure the cover does not obstruct the ejection port. If the
23 ejection port is blocked, the obstruction can interfere with the ejection of the spent cartridge
24 case and cause a stoppage.
25 (7) Resting the Magazine. The bottom, front, or side of the rifle magazine can rest on or
26 against support to provide additional stability (see figures 6-13, 6-14, and 6-15). However,
27 the back of the magazine should not be pulled back against support because it can cause a
28 stoppage by not allowing a round to feed from the magazine.
