3. Firmly shoulder your gun, take aim and when on target pull the trigger smoothly, without jerking. After firing, let the trigger return to the fully forward position.
SPECIAL NOTE ON TRIGGER PULL: When pulling the trigger an initial "take-up" section can be felt. This longer, initial pull is an added safety feature of your Model 94- It serves to drop an internal hammer block that is positioned between the hammer and receiver. The hammer block prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin until you pull the trigger to fire the rifle.
to chamber another round for the next shot —
1. Swing the finger lever fully down extracting and eject-
ing the fired cartridge case from the chamber.
2. Close the action by returning the finger lever upward. The closing of the action will transfer a new cartridge from the magazine to the chamber, leaving the hammer in a cocked "ready to fire" position.
3. WHEN THROUGH FIRING ALWAYS IMMEDIATELY PLACE THE MANUAL HAMMER STOP IN THE "ON" POSITION (SEE FIGURE 15), AND THE HAMMER IN THE SAFETY (REBOUND) POSITION (REFER BACK TO FIGURE 6).
To fire additional cartridges from the magazine, simply work the finger lever downward fully and return it to the original upward position and repeat the firing sequence again.
WHEN FIRING IS COMPLETED OR WHEN SHOOTING IS NO LONGER IMMINENT, IMMEDIATELY RETURN THE MANUAL HAMMER STOP TO THE "ON" (SAFE) POSITION AND RETURN THE HAMMER TO THE REBOUND POSITION.
IMPORTANT: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU MOVE ON OR CONTINUE TO HUNT WITH YOUR HAMMER OR SAFETY IN THE FIRE POSITION.
