Nomenclature

The SAFETY, in addition to its fore and aft motion, pivots to swing from side to side when on "safe" (S) and incorporates the function of barrel selector. If the selector is swung to its left side position the right barrel fires first. If the selector is to the right, the left barrel fires first. In its rearmost "safe" position, the safety locks the hammer interrupter. In this position it is impossible for the hammer to reach the firing pin and the trigger cannot be pulled.

The TOP LEVER and its pivot directly engage the locking bolt on both opening and closing motions.

The solid RIB is securely fastened to the barrels for quick target alignment.

The FOREND, like the buttstock, is of finely checkered high-grade walnut.

The steel TRIGGER GUARD protects the trigger from inadvertent blows. Fingers should always be kept outside the trigger guard except when actually firing.

SPECIAL FEATURES

The RUGERĀ® 12 GAUGE SIDE-BY-SIDE shotguns are offered with stainless steel receivers. The trigger and forend iron are made of stainless steel with an attractive brushed finish. The trigger guard, top lever, and safety thumbpiece, as well as barrels, are of heat-treated chrome-molybdenum steel, polished overall and blued.

The top lever and its pivot directly engage the locking bolt both on opening and closing motions. The lever and the locking bolt are driven to the closed position by the top lever spring which, through its strut, retains the top lever in the gun. The Ruger shotgun has been engineered to minimize the force required for cocking.
