Removing the barrel: NOTE: When a new barrel is installed the rifle must be resighted.

1. Make sure the rifle is unloaded.

2. Remove the bolt, magazine, and the stock (See Figure 11).

4. Extract barrel from the receiver by pulling it straight out (See Figure 12).

Installing the barrel:

1. Make sure the rifle is unloaded.

2. Place the safety in the center position.

3. Make sure the barrel is clear of any obstructions.

4. Insert the barrel into the receiver by first indexing the small flat on the bottom of the barrel shank to the 6:00 o'clock bottom position on the receiver. Insert the barrel into the receiver with a slight rotating motion until the barrel clicks into position.

5. Insert the bolt into the receiver, close and rotate bolt handle downward into the locked position.

6. Tighten the two (2) barrel clamping screws with supplied wrench. The trigger assembly:

The trigger is adjusted at the factory to provide a crisp, single stage pull. The internal adjustment screw is pre-set at the factory and permanently sealed. Do not attempt to adjust the trigger. Any change in the original factory adjustment can either cause the rifle to fire unexpectedly with the safety in the "S" (SAFE) position or not permit the rifle to fire at all. If the rifle fires unexpectedly, injury or death could result.
