SAVAGE ARMS OFFERS CERTAIN MODEL FIREARMS WITH AN ACCUTRIGGER TM - A SPECIALLY DESIGNED USER ADJUSTABLE TRIGGER. AT THE LOWER SETTINGS, SUCH FIREARMS ARE CONSIDERED TARGET FIREARMS. IT IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SHOOTER TO EXERCISE EXTREME CARE WHILE ADJUSTING/HANDLING THESE FIREARMS. SAVAGE ARMS ACCEPTS NO RESPONSIBILITY/ LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT AND/OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGE AND/OR INJURY RESULTING FROM THE MISUSE AND/OR MISHANDLING OF A FIREARM. AS WITH ANY PRECISION TUNED MECHANICAL DEVICE, PERIODIC INSPECTION/MAINTENANCE IS REQUIRED - AND YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!

WITH SAFETY AS OUR PRIMARY CONCERN, THE ACCUTRIGGER TM DESIGN REQUIRES THE SHOOTER TO PLACE THEIR FINGER SQUARELY OVER THE ACCURELEASE ™. PULLING THE TRIGGER FROM THE SIDE OR NOT DIRECTLY REARWARD WILL CAUSE THE SEAR TO DISENGAGE AND BE BLOCKED BY THE ACCURELEASE ™ . ALTHOUGH A 'CLICK' MAY BE HEARD, THE SEAR IS BLOCKED, PREVENTING THE FIRING PIN FROM HITTING THE PRIMER. WHEN THIS HAPPENS, THE BOLT MUST BE RAISED AND LOWERED TO 'RECOCK' THE FIREARM.

DO NOT MOVE THE SAFETY FORWARD TO THE SAFETY OFF - READY TO FIRE POSITION UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

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.

NEVER TOUCH THE TRIGGER ON A FIREARM UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY INTEND TO SHOOT.

NEVER POINT YOUR GUN AT ANYTHING YOU DO NOT INTEND TO SHOOT.

ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN SAFE A DIRECTION.

1. Keep your finger off the trigger and out of the trigger guard until you are ready to shoot.

2. Always look carefully around to be sure that no one will cross in front of you when you are ready to shoot.

3. Place the firearm to your shoulder and move the safety forward to the SAFETY OFF - READY TO FIRE position and take aim.

4. Place your finger in the trigger guard and when you are on target, squeeze the trigger slowly.
