WARNING: IF THE BARREL/FOREARM WILL NOT TURN WITH RESPECT TO THE RECEIVER, DO NOT APPLY EXTRA FORCE UNTIL YOU OPEN THE ACTION AND CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE BARREL LOCK HAS BEEN SLID FORWARD SUFFICIENTLY. APPLYING UNDUE FORCE WITH THE ACTION CLOSED OR THE BARREL LOCK ENGAGED COULD DAMAGE THE RIFLE.

6. The barrel/forearm is now removed from the receiver and you are holding the two halves of your rifle. Your rifle is now fully taken down (Figure 5).

7. To case or store your rifle in two halves, close the bolt by working the finger lever rearward then upward.

YOU MUST AVOID INADVERTENTLY ATTEMPTING TO TAKE DOWN THE RIFLE WITH THE ACTION CLOSED. THIS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE BOLT OR OTHER COMPONENTS.

Assembly Procedure

If your rifle is taken down into its two component parts follow these instructions for assembly and for preparing your rifle for use.

MAKE SURE YOUR RIFLE IS COMPLETELY UNLOADED. ASSURE THAT ALL CARTRIDGES ARE REMOVED FROM THE MAGAZINE, CHAMBER AND FEED AREAS AS EXPLAINED IN YOUR MODEL 1895 OWNER'S MANUAL. MAKE SURE YOUR RIFLE'S MUZZLE IS POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. PLACE THE SAFETY IN THE "ON SAFE" POSITION.

1. Open the action completely by lowering the finger lever and positioning it fully forward as explained in your Model 1895 owner's manual.

2. Make sure the barrel lock is slid all the way toward the muzzle.

3. Hold the receiver half of the rifle in one hand and the barrel/forearm half in the other.

4. Position the receiver half in normal shooting position (top of the receiver upward) and position the barrel/forearm rotated until the bottom of the forearm is on the left side, at approximately 90°.

5. Carefully insert the threaded barrel extension fully into the receiver until the faces on the receiver half and the barrel/forearm half are lightly touching. At this point the barrel extension is fully inserted. The interrupted threads on both the barrel extension and in the receiver allow you to attach the barrel/forearm to the receiver.

6. With the barrel extension inserted, turn the barrel/forearm counterclockwise 90° to tighten the connection (Figure 6). Very little force should be required to turn the barrel/forearm assembly into its proper position.

WARNING: IF THE BARREL/FOREARM WILL NOT TURN WITH RESPECT TO THE RECEIVER DO NOT APPL Y EXTRA FORCE. CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE ACTION IS COMPLETELY OPEN AND THE BARREL LOCK IS SUD FULLY FORWARD. APPLYING FORCE WITH THE BOLT CLOSED COULD DAMAGE THE ACTION.

Turn the barrel 90° counterclockwise with respect to the receiver to connect the barrel and receiver halves.

If it still will not turn, check to make sure there is no foreign matter (dirt, grit, etc.) between the surfaces of the receiver and barrel/forearm halves. If there is, wipe clean and lightly oil the faces and try again.

7. With the two halves properly in place, slide the barrel lock fully to the rear of the rifle.

8. Be sure the barrel lock is fully rearward (Figure 7). Your rifle is now fully reassembled.

BARREL TAKE-UP ADJUSTMENT

The barrel take-up adjustment feature is designed to maintain a tight barrel-to-receiver fit and accommodate wear. If, after extensive shooting and repeated removal and installation of the barrel/forearm, you detect some play in this connection, you can adjust the fit by following the procedure below.

1. Remove the barrel/forearm assembly as explained on page 4 and set the receiver half aside.

2. Locate the adjustment screw lock screw on the barrel/forearm half of the rifle (Figure 8). Using a standard screwdriver, turn the screw counterclockwise to loosen it until it clears the adjusting screw lock.

3. With your finger or the edge of a screwdriver, slide the adjusting screw lock in the slot away from the adjusting screw until it disengages its notches from the notches on the adjusting screw.

4. Adjust the fit of the receiver and barrel/forearm by turning the adjusting screw underneath the barrel with a standard screwdriver (Figure 9). To tighten the fit, turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise. To loosen the fit, turn the adjusting screw clockwise. Turn the adjustment screw only one notch at a time.

5. Slide the adjusting screw lock back into place against the adjustment screw. Tighten the adjustment screw lock screw by turning it clockwise.

6. Remount the barrel/forearm to the receiver and check the fit. If the fit is still too tight or too loose, continue to adjust the fit according to the directions. Adjusting is a matter of trial and error. It may take several attempts before you are satisfied with the fit. When you are satisfied with the fit, be sure to replace the adjustment screw lock and tighten the adjustment screw lock screw.
