ACCUTRIGGER™ INSTRUCTIONS

For more information, please visit our web site at: www.savagearms.com

CAUTION

SAVAGE ARMS' OFFERS CERTAIN MODEL FIREARMS WITH AN ACCUTRIGGER ™ -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.

AccuTrigger'1' Pull Adjustment

SAFE OWNERSHIP IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. PRIOR TO ADJUSTING THE ACCUTRIGGERw PLEASE THOROUGHLY READ AND UNDERSTAND THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL IN ITS ENTIRETY.

With safety as our primary concern, the AccuTrigger ™ 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 're-cock' the firearm.

CAUTION

MAKE SURE THE FIREARM IS UNLOADED AND THE BOLT IS OPEN BEFORE REMOVING THE STOCK AND ADJUSTING THE ACCUTRIGGER'"

1. Remove the stock (see section REMOVING THE STOCK below)

2. Insert the AccuTrigger ™ supplied tool into the bottom of the trigger return spring as shown, to engage the spring-tail with the slot on the tool. Turn the trigger return spring (A) with the trigger adjustment tool (B) as shown in FIGURE 8 and FIGURE 9.

3. To adjust towards the higher range of pull (approximately 6 pounds), turn the tool clockwise. The maximum trigger pull is at the point where the spring "clicks" when rotated (see figure 8).

4. To adjust for a lower pull (approximately 2 Vz pounds), turn the tool counter-clockwise. The minimum pull is at the point when the large coil contacts the top surface of the trigger and you detect resistance (see figure 9).

The spring should not be forced beyond these limits.

Excessive jarring or pulling the trigger without depressing the AccuRelease"' may cause the sear to move (see figure 11). As designed, this will prevent accidental discharge by 'locking' the trigger and requiring the bolt to be re-cocked in order to reset the sear.

5. The AccuRelease" (see figures 10 and 11) adds an additional level by stopping the sear if the rifle is accidentally jarred or dropped with the safety in the "FIRE" position.

When the sear is blocked by the AccuRelease1" (see Figure 11). the firing pin is restrained within the bolt assembly, preventing it from hitting the primer. The 'click' that is heard is the actual sear being blocked by the AccuRelease ™, not the firing pin!

CAUTION

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

KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER AND OUT OF THE TRIGGER GUARD 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.

REMOVING THE STOCK

CAUTION

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.

THE REAR ACTION SCREW (SEE FIGURE 12) HOLDS THE BOLT IN THE RECEIVER. LOOSENING THIS SCREW WILL ALLOW THE BOLT TO BE REMOVED.

1. Be sure the bolt is open and using the supplied ramrod, verify there is no load in the barrel.

2. Place the rifle upside down on a table or suitable hard surface so the sights are down and the trigger guard is facing upward (see FIGURE 12).

3. Using a 5/32" Allen wrench, loosen the rear action screw, remove the bolt assembly by pulling fully rearward out of the receiver, then remove the action screw completely.

4. Using the same 5/32" Allen wrench, remove the front action screw completely.

5. The stock can now be removed.

This manual should always accompany your firearm and be transferred with it upon change of ownership. This is your responsibility and may protect you from future liability.

REASSEMBLING THE STOCK

1. Place the bolt back into the receiver and close the bolt handle completely.

2. Place the action into the stock, resting the butt on a hard surface with the muzzle pointing upward.

3. Replace both screws (long one to the rear) but do not tighten.

4. Be sure the bolt operates smoothly after the rear action screw is only 'finger tight'. If the bolt binds, remove the rear action screw, open the bolt handle, and then close the bolt assuring the handle is all the way down.

5. With the firearm pointed upward, tighten the top screw first and then the one below (front of the trigger guard). Improper alignment/torque of the rear action screw may shift the pont of impact.

6. Cycle the bolt several times to be sure that it functions properly.

7. Place a thin piece of paper between the barrel and the stock to be sure there is clearance.

8. Verify that all three positions of the safety function normally prior to loading with ammunition.

CAUTION

AFTER REASSEMBLING THE STOCK, VERIFY THAT THE SAFETY OPERATES CORRECTLY AS DEFINED IN THE INSTRUCTION MANUALS - BASIC FUNCTIONS SECTION. SAFE OWNERSHIP IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!
