A WARNING—MANUAL SAFETY

Putting the safety between "S" and "F" can result in the pistol firing when the trigger is pulled. Always move the safety fully to its intended position and check it. The safety is not "on" unless it is completely "on." Never depend on a safety mechanism or any other mechanical device to justify careless handling or permitting the pistol to point in an unsafe direction. The only "safe" pistol is one in which the bolt is open, the chamber is empty and there is no magazine in the gun.

NEVER PUT SAFETY 1/2 ON
