2. Remove the forearm by sliding it forward off the magazine tube.
3. If you are disassembling your shotgun for cleaning remove the barrel, gas piston, piston sleeve and piston sleeve spring by sliding them forward off the magazine tube. See "Cleaning and Maintenance Suggestions" on page 33 in this owner's manual for cleaning procedures. If you are disassembling for storage, lock the action open. Leave the gas piston, piston sleeve and piston sleeve spring on the magazine tube as explained previously. Reinstall them if they have been removed. Install the forearm over the magazine tube and screw on the magazine cap. You will then have two compact units: (1) the barrel, and (2) the action with forearm and stock.
CAUTION: AFTER THE BARREL HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM YOUR FIREARM, AND YOU INTEND TO STORE YOUR FIREARM, LEAVE THE BOLT IN THE OPEN POSITION. DO NOT PRESS THE CARRIER RELEASE BUTTON. IF THE BOLT IS RELEASED FORWARD WITH THE BARREL REMOVED, THE OPERATING HANDLE WILL HIT THE FRONT OF THE EJECTION PORT AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO BOTH THE RECEIVER AND THE OPERATING HANDLE.
