PRIOR TO LOADING OR OPERATING, FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF THOROUGHLY WITH THESE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS AND THE MAIN PARTS OF YOUR FIREARM.

YOUR GUN IS A MECHANICAL DEVICE WHICH WILL NOT LAST FOREVER AND IS SUBJECT TO WEAR. WHEN SOMETHING DOES NOT SOUND, FEEL, OR LOOK RIGHT, SEEK THE ADVICE OF A PROFESSIONAL GUNSMITH IMMEDIATELY. NEVER TAKE A CHANCE.

FAILURE TO OBEY A SAFETY WARNING MAY RESULT IN INJURY TO YOU OR OTHERS.

KNOW HOW TO LOCATE AND OPERATE THE SAFETY MECHANISM.

THE USE OF RELOADS, HANDLOADS, MILITARY SURPLUS, OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL/ NONCOMMERCIAL AMMUNITION NOT MANUFACTURED TO SAAMI (SPORTING ARMS AND AMMUNITION MANUFACTURERS' INSTITUTE, INC.)/ ANSI (AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARDS INSTITUTE) SPECIFICATIONS WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.

ALWAYS BE SURE THE FIREARM (ESPECIALLY THE END OF THE BARREL) IS FREE AND CLEAR OF ANY OBSTRUCTIONS THAT MAY RESTRICT (OR SLOW DOWN) THE BULLET FROM LEAVING THE MUZZLE AT ITS NORMAL RA TE OF SPEED. THIS INCLUDES SNOW, WATER, BRUSH, SHRUBS, STICKS, LEAVES AND DEBRIS TO NAME A FEW. NEVER PLACE THE END OF A BARREL OR SUBMERGE A FIREARM UNDER WATER, AS THAT WILL CAUSE A SEVERE OBSTRUCTION. RESTRICTING, SLOWING, OR STOPPING THE BULLET FROM LEAVING THE MUZZLE WILL CREATE AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF PRESSURE TO BUILD UP BEHIND IT AND MAY LEAD TO EXTENSIVE DAMAGE TO THE FIREARM AND PERSONAL INJURY TO THE SHOOTER AND/OR BYSTANDERS. SAFE OPERATION IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AND CAN ONLY BE CONTROLLED BY YOU!

KNOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE POINTING THE BARREL OF A FIREARM AND WHY! BOLT INSTALLATION (SEE FIGURE 1)

RIGHT HAND ACTION ILLUSTRATED (LEFT HAND IS THE MIRROR IMAGE)

BOLT ASSEMBLIES ARE SPECIFICALLY MATCHED TO A FIREARM. USING ANY OTHER BOLT ASSEMBLY MAY CAUSE EXTENSIVE DAMAGE TO THE FIREARM AND/OR SERIOUS INJURY TO THE SHOOTER OR BYSTANDER.

CERTAIN FIREARMS ARE SHIPPED WITH THE BOLT REMOVED AND PACKED IN A SEPARATE COMPARTMENT WITHIN THE BOX. BEFORE INSTALLING THE BOLT, VERIFY THAT THE 4 DIGITS ENGRAVED BY THE EXTRACTOR MATCH THE LAST 4 DIGITS OF THE SERIAL NUMBER.

1. Rotate the FRONT BAFFLE (1) to line-up the BOLT GUIDE with the EXTRACTOR.

2. Pull the TRIGGER (2) fully rearward and hold it in that position.

3. Press down on the COCKING INDICATOR (3).

4. WITH NO AMMUNITION IN THE FIREARM, insert the BOLT (4) into the firearm, pushing it forward.

5. Close the BOLT HANDLE (pushing downward) and verify that the "THREE POSITION SAFETY" is operational as explained in this section.

iSAFETYl

The safety on your Savage Arms bolt action firearm has 3 positions:

• FULL SAFE - Pull safety button towards shooter (trigger blocked - bolt can not be opened).

• MID POSITION (trigger blocked - bolt can be opened).

• SAFETY OFF - READY TO FIRE. Push safety button away from shooter.

FULL SAFE

1. The safety is in the FULL SAFE position when it has been moved fully rearward, covering the red "F" (See FIGURE 2).

2. The safety should be moved into the FULL SAFE position when the bolt has been closed and the firearm is ready to fire.

3. In the FULL SAFE position, the trigger is blocked from moving and the bolt on rifles can not be opened.

FIGURE 2 (AccuTrigger™ Model shown)

WHEN CARRYING A LOADED FIREARM, THE SAFETY MUST ALWAYS BE IN THE FULL SAFE POSITION.

THE ONLY TIME YOU CAN BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THAT A GUN CANNOT FIRE IS WHEN THE ACTION IS OPEN AND IT IS COMPLETELY EMPTY OF AMMUNITION.

MID POSITION

1. MID POSITION allows the bolt to be opened and cycled while still blocking the trigger.

2. The safety will move to the MID POSITION when the following sequence is performed:

• lift the bolt handle

• move the safety to the FULL SAFE position

• push the bolt handle downward

WHEN IN DOUBT - NEVER ASSUME! WITH THE BOLT HANDLE FULLY UPWARD - THE BOLT PULLED TO THE REAR - THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION - THE SAFETY IN THE MID SAFE POSITION, THE TRIGGER SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY REARWARD MOVEMENT.

SAFETY OFF - READY TO FIRE

1. The safety is in the OFF position when moved fully forward, exposing the red "F". NEVER TRANSPORT/CARRY A LOADED FIREARM WITH THE SAFETY OFF.

FIREARMS SHOULD BE LOADED ONLY WHEN YOU ARE IN THE FIELD, ON THE TARGET RANGE, OR AT A SHOOTING AREA READY TO SHOOT.

ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION.

USE ONLY THE CORRECT AMMUNITION THAT IS INDICATED (STAMPED) ON THE SIDE OF THE BARREL.

THOROUGHLY CLEAN THE INSIDE OF THE BARREL AND CHAMBER TO ASSURE THERE ARE NO POSSIBLE OBSTRUCTIONS PRIOR TO LOADING.

THE USE OF RELOADS, HANDLOADS, MILITARY SURPLUS, OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL/ NONCOMMERCIAL AMMUNITION NOT MANUFACTURED TO SAAMI (SPORTING ARMS AND AMMUNITION MANUFACTURERS' INSTITUTE, INC.)/ANSI (AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARDS INSTITUTE) SPECIFICATIONS WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.

KNOW YOUR GUN! IF ANYTHING 'FEELS' OR SOUNDS DIFFERENT WHEN LOADING OR SHOOTING - STOP - AND HAVE A QUALIFIED GUNSMITH TAKE A LOOK! NEVER TAKE A CHANCE WITH SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE UNSURE OF... ALWAYS ASK A PROFESSIONAL.
