alert.png CAUTION: CAREFULLY READ THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL PRIOR TO LOADING AND FIRING THIS FIREARM. FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PROPER HANDLING AND SAFE USE OF THIS FIREARM - LIVES MAY DEPEND ON IT!
alert.png CAUTION: USE ONLY CLEAN, DRY, HIGH QUALITY COMMERCIALLY MANUFACTURED AMMUNITION IN GOOD CONDITION which is appropriate to the 5.56mm NATO/223 Remington or 6.8mm Remington SPC caliber of your Firearm. Bushmaster does not recommend the use of remanufactured or hand loaded ammunition because it may damage your rifle and/or cause your firearm to malfunction.

FUNDAMENTAL RULES FOR SAFE GUN HANDLING

  • ALWAYS KEEP THE FIREARM POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION.
  • NEVER LOAD THE FIREARM 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 Firearm can still fire and COULD MALFUNCTION CAUSING PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.
  • 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 firearm 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 Firearm 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). 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 and the Firearm pointed down range.
  • If there is water in the barrel, do not fire the rifle. IT COULD MALFUNCTION CAUSING PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.
  • Pull the charging handle to the rear to break the seal to ensure the water will run off from the chamber through the ejection port area.
  • If a noticeable difference in sound or recoil is experienced, STOP FIRING! Either condition could indicate an incomplete powder burn and/or a bullet or other obstruction stuck in the bore.
  • Take the Firearm to a qualified gunsmith and have obstructions removed.
  • NOTE: With the Bolt Carrier Assembly locked to the rear, or in its forward position, if the Firearm is dropped or jarred with a loaded magazine in place, a live round could be chambered.

ALWAYS PRACTICE SAFE FIREARMS HANDLING!
