Rarely will modern factory ammunition experience a misfire. If this ever occurs when shooting your Select, please follow these instructions carefully.
CAUTION: IN CASE OF MISFIRE, KEEP THE BARREL POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. CAREFULLY OPEN THE ACTION WHILE AVOIDING DIRECT EXPOSURE TO THE BREECH BY YOURSELF AND OTHERS. REMOVE THE SHELL FROM THE CHAMBER. FULLY UNLOAD YOUR SHOTGUN BY REMOVING THE OTHER SHELL.
Carefully inspect the misfired shell. If the primer is indented, the shell should be disposed of in a manner that would prevent accidental injury to you, others, or the environment. If there is no indentation, your firearm may have malfunctioned. Make certain you are following all firing procedures correctly. If it fails to indent the firing pin again, your shotgun has malfunctioned and should be serviced by a qualified gunsmith, or by one of our Authorized Repair Centers (Page 30).
