FUNDAMENTAL RULES FOR SAFE GUN HANDLING

ALWAYS KEEP THE GUN POINTED IN A SAFE DlRECTlON.

NEVER LOAD THE GUN UNTIL READY TO USE.

KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL READY TO SHOOT.

WARNING: BEWARE OF DANGEROUS PROCEDURES

  • Be sure Cam Pin is installed in the Bolt Group. If it isn’t, your rifle can still fire and WILL EXPLODE.
  • When using a Blank Firing Attachment, NEVER FIRE ANYTHING EXCEPT BLANKS! For your safety, we recommend the visible, military style blank firing attachment (BFI Part# RAY-008).
  • If your rifle stops firing with a live round in the chamber of a hot barrel (a misfire), REMOVE THE ROUND FAST! However, if you cannot remove it within 10 seconds, remove magazine and wait 15 minutes with the Rifle Pointing in a SAFE DIRECTION! This way you won’t be hurt by a possible round “cooking-off” (i.e. the round detonating just from the heat of the barrel). In any event, keep your face away from the ejection port while clearing a hot chamber.
  • If your bolt fails to unlock, and you try to free it by tapping the buttstock on the ground while pulling on the charging handle, keep yourself clear of the Muzzle!
  • If there is water in the barrel, do not fire the rifle. IT COULD EXPLODE!
  • If you hear a noticeable difference in sound or recoil is experienced, STOP FIRING! Either condition could indicate an incomplete powder burn and/or a bullet stuck in the bore.
  • NOTE: With the bolt carrier assembly locked to the rear, or in its forward position, if the weapon is dropped or jarred with a loaded magazine in place, a live round could be chambered.

ALWAYS PRACTICE SAFE FIREARMS HANDLING!
