When holding the rifle, check that it is not loaded by opening and drawing back the bolt. All weapons, even unloaded ones, have to be handled carefully. Remember that most accidents happen with an "UNLOADED GUN".
IDENTIFICATION (Fig. 1)
You will find the model and serial number of the rifle stamped on the side of the receiver, while the caliber is shown on the barrel. NOTE! Make sure you have ammunition of the correct caliber for your rifle, and that the chamber and bore are clean of any obstruction including water or excessive oil.
