Understanding these instructions and the technically correct implementation of the information contained therein are imperative to correct preparation and safety during handling, care and maintenance of this Mauser M2 pistol. Do not use the pistol until you have fully understood all safety instructions and its handling procedures. Should you require further information, do not hesitate to contact your dealer, importer or the manufacturer.

Please observe all Federal, State & local laws and regulations governing the ownership, carrying and use of firearms.

Be aware that these pistols, like all firearms, are dangerous. Consequently, the pistol accompanying these Handling and Safety Instructions has been sold under the express understanding that the manufacturer and the importer of the pistol decline any responsibility for consequences of manipulations with or on the pistol. This applies in particular to liability for bodily harm or damage to property resulting in whole or in part from:

- discharge with criminal intent or through negligence,

- improper or careless handling,

- defective, incorrect, hand-loaded or reloaded ammunition,

- inadequate care of the pistol (e.g. corrosion, damage),

- disregard of malfunctions,

- resale in contradiction of regional legislation,

- other circumstances beyond our direct and immediate control.

These limitations apply regardless of whether liability is asserted on the basis of contract, negligence or strict liability (including any failure to warn).

The manufacturer and the importers are not liable for incidental or consequential damages such as loss of use of property, commercial loss or loss of earnings and profits.

2 Safety Regulations

A Never use the pistol when under the influence of alcohol or drugs, during illness or other complaints; they can influence your judgement and reflexes.

A Always consider the pistol as loaded and unsafe until you have verified that it is not through the unloading procedure (see Sect. 5.8).

A During all manipulations, keep the muzzle of the pistol pointed in a safe direction. Safe directions are defined as areas where there are no people, other living creatures or other people's property.

A Never point the pistol at doors, window panes, walls, concrete, stones or other flat surfaces (including water). Shots can penetrate such surfaces, or be deflected into unsafe directions by them.

A Never aim at yourself or other living creatures.

A Never rely on safety mechanisms. They are never a substitute for careful and correct handling of the pistol.

A Always handle your pistol as if the safety mechanisms were defective. The best safety device is correct, well-exercised and secure handling of the pistol.

A Never shoot a pistol into which there has been ingress of water, sand, dirt or other foreign bodies.

A Never let a loaded pistol out of your hands.

A Always unload the pistol immediately after shooting, before putting it down, holstering it or handing it to another authorized person.

A Never hand over the pistol to any person who has not thoroughly familiarized himself or herself with the safety regulations and handling of the pistol by reading the accompanying instructions. A Never leave the pistol unattended. Unauthorized persons could cause damage with it, threaten or kill other people, for which you could be held liable. A Never store the pistol loaded, but remove the magazine and verify that there is no round in the barrel chamber by following the unloading procedure (see Sect. 5.8). A Always keep the pistol and the ammunition in different places and ensure that neither can fall into the hands of unauthorized persons or children. In the individual sections of these instructions, the following safety indications alert you to various risks:

Information on risks which, if not scrupulously observed, can directly lead to severe bodily harm or death.

Information on risks which, if not scrupulously observed, can lead to bodily harm, damage to property and damage to the pistol.

Information on technical requirements which, if not scrupulously observed, can lead to damage to the pistol.

IMPORTANT THE SAFEST PISTOL IS ONE THAT IS FULLY UNLOADED.

Mauser M2

The Ten Commandments of Firearms Safety

1. ALWAYS treat every gun as if it were loaded.

2. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

3. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

4. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

5. ALWAYS be sure the gun is safe to operate and the barrel is clear of any obstruction.

6. ALWAYS use the proper, factory-made ammunition for your particular gun.

7. ALWAYS know your target and what is beyond it.

8. ALWAYS wear ear and eye protection when shooting.

9. NEVER use alcohol or drugs before or during handling a gun.

10. ALWAYS store guns and ammunition in separate locked containers, so they are secure and not accessible to unauthorized persons.

BECOME FAMILIAR WITH YOUR PISTOL, UNDERSTAND THE INSTRUCTIONS FULLY BEFORE USING IT.

What you should know about all safety mechanisms

NEVER completely trust any safety mechanism. Your pistol is equipped with an effective, well designed safety mechanism. NO SAFETY MECHANISM, HOWEVER, IS A SUBSTITUTE FOR PROPER GUN HANDLING. Any safety mechanism can break down or malfunction. YOU, AND YOU ALONE, ARE THE ULTIMATE SAFETY MECHANISM.

Remember, there is no such thing as a "childproof" safety or one which can completely prevent accidental discharge from careless or irresponsible use.

The best safety is proper and applied training in safe gun handling.

Mauser M2

3.2 Main features

Mauser M2 pistols are modern semi-automatic pistols complying with the latest technical advances in firearms design. They operate on the principle of mechanically half-cocked recoil loading with semiautomatic reloading. The pistols utilize a striker system (no hammer) and incorporate a double action only trigger mechanism. The Mauser M2 incorporates several safety features, including a loaded chamber indicator, magazine safety disconnect (prevents activation of the firing mechanism when the magazine is removed), trigger bar disconnector (prevents out of battery firing), automatic firing pin safety, and optional external manual safety. After each shot the firing pin returns to the half-cocked position. The distinctive contrast sights in conjunction with the ergonomic grip design permit rapid, precision target acquisition and engagement. The enclosed design prevents the penetration of dirt inside the pistol.

I3T Notice

A Always keep your pistol in immaculate condition and in good working order.

A Always clean your pistol after use.

A Never modify or repair parts of your pistol yourself.

A Have your pistol checked once every 12 months by a qualified gunsmith or armorer because defects, wear, corrosion, etc. are not always visible from the outside.

A For repairs or service work, however, we recommend that you return your pistol to the manufacturer who always holds a full range of replacement parts in stock.

A If you order spare parts without returning the pistol, you are responsible for ordering the correct part and its correct fitting by a qualified gunsmith or armorer.

A The manufacturer and importer cannot be held liable for faults in the pistol or malfunctions if the pistol has been modified or non-original parts have been fitted by third parties.

8 Pistol Service and Repairs

8.1 Cause and correction of malfunctions

Pistol maintenance (cleaning and inspection) according to the instructions can prevent malfunctions. Should, nevertheless, a malfunction occur during shooting, proceed as follows:

8.3 Shipping the pistol

Warning

. Familiarize yourself fully with Federal, State & local laws governing the shipping and transportation of firearms.

When you return a pistol to the SIGARMS Inc. Service Department, here's what to do:

1. Make sure that the chamber and magazine(s) are unloaded and that no ammunition is included.

2. Package the firearm securely to prevent damage. Enclose a letter which includes your name, street address, daytime phone number, pistol model and serial number, and a detailed description of the problem you have experienced or the work you want performed. With the exception of extra magazines, do not include cases, scopes, mounts or other accessories.

If repairs are to be done under warranty, enclose copy of sales receipt.
