When firing ihe pistol, be sure thai other shooters and bystanders arc well clear of the shooter and a safe distance to the rear. Empty cartridge eases are ejected from the pistol with some velocity and could cause injury to any person who is standing in their path. Left-handed shooters should be particularly cautious concerning ejected cartridge cases and powder. All shooters should wear shooting glasses when firing the Ruger Automatic Pistol.
The bolt of the Automatic Pistol moves rearward forcefully and at high speed when the gun is fired. Do not position your face, hands, or any part of your body so the bolt can strike you when the gun is fired.
WARNING: Never clean, lubricate, disassemble, assemble, or work on a firearm while it is loaded.
1. Remove the magazine. Draw the bolt fully rearward and visually inspect the chamber to be certain there is no cartridge in it and then release the bolt. Pull the trigger, to he sure hammer has fallen. Hammer must be uncocked before pistol can be disassembled.
2. Insert a blunt, 'pointed' instrument in the oval recess of the mainspring housing (at the back of the grip) and swing the housing latch open like the blade of a pocket knife. (Some users find that a paper clip, looped over the latch, is an ideal 'instrument' for this phase of disassembly.)
3. Swing the entire housing outward on its pivot and pull downward, removing mainspring housing and bolt stop pin, as shown in Figure 8. With new pistols it may be necessary to lightly tap (with a plastic hammer) on the top portion of the bolt stop pin — which protrudes above the receiver — while pulling downward on the mainspring housing.
4. With the mainspring housing and bolt stop pin (as an assembly) removed, a blow (with a plastic hammer) on the rear of the bolt will disengage the barrel-reccivcr assembly from the grip frame. The bolt can then be removed from the receiver. No attempt should he made to remove rivets or staked pins. Further disassembly should he undertaken only by the factory.
1. Slide bolt into receiver, spring upward. CAUTION: Wbtn sliding the bolt into the receiver« BE CERTAIN that the Firing Pin Stop (Part #A35B, a small pin) is in the bolt. If the bolt is assembled without the Firing Pin Stop in place« the first time the pistol is dry fired (no cartridge in the chamber), the firing pin will be free to move forward to the extent that it will dent tbe rear face of tbe chamber, thus rendering the Barrel-Receiver Assembly useless and beyond repair.
2. Place hammer in horizontal position. Push safety upward, to ON (MSW showing).
3. Place barrcl-rccciver on top of frame about one quarter of an inch ahead of its final position and press it backward and downward so that the lug (formed by the top end of the trigger guard) engages the front recess on the underside of the receiver (see Figure 8). When the rear end of the receiver is just about even with the
