Repairs R55 Chambers

The safety of your T/C 22LR Classic should be in the rearward "ON" position at all times unless you are actually engaged in the act of shooting. FAILURE TO HEED THIS WARNING CAN CAUSE INJURY AND/OR DEATH TO THE SHOOTER OR BYSTANDERS AND DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.

When loading T/C's Model R55 rifle, without the magazine, loading will be made easier when the shooter can lock back the bolt manually (without the magazine in place). Once the bolt has been locked back, the shooter can proceed to insert the 22 LR cartridge directly into the chamber manually. Once inserted, simply pull backwards on the bolt, release it, and it will travel forward coming to rest against the chambered cartridge.

To manually lock the bolt in the rearward position:

1. Pull rearward on the bolt handle until the bolt is fully rearward

1. Pull rearward on the bolt handle until the bolt is fully rearward

2. Insert a pencil (or wood dowel) into the magazine well and press up on the

bolt lock. Once pressed, let up slightly on the fingers holding the bolt rearward. As you do this, you will feel the bolt catch on the bolt lock, losing its momentum to travel forward. Remove the pencil (or wood dowel) from the inside of the magazine well, and the bolt will be locked in the rearward position.

Practice this procedure until it becomes second nature to you.

Remember, the T/C Model R55 rifle will fire without the magazine in place. It is designed to do so.

The T/C Model R55 rifle will fire a chambered cartridge without the magazine in place. Do not assume that when you remove the magazine, you have unloaded the rifle. Visually inspect the chamber to assure that there is no cartridge in the chamber. A LIVE CARTRIDGE COULD STILL BE IN THE CHAMBER, AND BY PULLING THE TRIGGER AN ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE COULD RESULT IN INJURY AND/OR DEATH TO THE SHOOTER OF BYSTANDERS, AND DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.

Disassembly of the T/C Model R55 Rifle

Before cleaning or working on the TC Model R55, always make sure the safety is "ON" and the Model R55 is unloaded; that the chamber is empty and that the magazine is out of the rifle, before attempting to disassemble any portion of the rifle. WORKING ON A LOADED RIFLE COULD RESULT IN AN ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE WHICH COULD RESULT IN INJURY AND/OR DEATH TO THE SHOOTER OR BYSTANDERS, AND DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.

When disassembling the T/C Model R55, make sure that the safety is "ON" and that the rifle and magazine are unloaded. Keep the rifle pointed in a safe direction.

Now that the safety is "ON" (and the hammer is cocked) the rifle is now ready to disassemble.
