To Unload Rifle And Magazine

(Keep the Rifle Pointed in a Safe Direction)

UNLOAD THE RIFLE IMMEDIATELY WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED SHOOTING.

1. Move the safety selector to the "Load-Unload" position if the firing pin is cocked.

2. Lift the bolt handle fully and then pull it completely to the rear to eject chambered cartridge.

3. Inspect the chamber to be certain the cartridge has been extracted. Leave bolt open. Do not unload magazine by feeding cartridges into chamber.

4. Push rearward the small latch in the front of the trigger guard to open the hinged floorplate and empty the cartridges from the magazine. Hold the other hand under the floorplate so as to retard the opening of the spring loaded floorplate and catch the cartridges in the palm of the hand.

5. Close the bolt fully.

6. Move the safety selector in the "Fire" position and with the rifle pointed in a safe direction, pull the trigger.

^WARNING - UNLOADING

Removing cartridges from the magazine does not prevent the rifle from being fired! When there is a cartridge in the chamber and the safety selector is in the "Fire" position, the cartridge will discharge if the trigger is pulled. It is absolutely essential for the user to know how to completely unload it.

"Completely" means emptying the magazine and removing a chambered cartridge. The safety selector should always be in the "Load-Unload" position when the rifle is being unloaded. See the "Operation of Safety" section of this manual.
