    2. Safety Mechanism

         This air rifle features a positive cross-bolt safety mechanism. The cross-bolt safety is the gold colored bolt located directly in front of the trigger (see Figure 1).

     

    Figure 1

     

    2.1 Engaging the Safety

    Holding the rifle in a standard shooting position, pointed downward and in a SAFE DIRECTION, push the bolt completely to your right towards the side of the trigger guard marked with an "S."

    The safety is now engaged and the rifle will not fire. However, continue to treat the rifle with caution and always keep pointed in a SAFE DIRECTION.

    2.2 Disengaging the Safety

               Push the bolt to your left towards the red danger ring. This allows the trigger to be pulled. See Figure 2.

     

    Figure 2

     

     

     

    3. To Charge the Rifle

              NOTE: USE COMPRESSED AIR ONLY. Other gases are dangerous and will void the warranty. Under no condition should this rifle be filled over 3,000 PSI. This is dangerous and will void the warranty.

     

     

     

     

    3.1 When Charging the Rifle for the First Time

               There is a one time step to follow if the rifle's air chamber is not pressurized. The rifle must be fully cocked before pressurizing. To cock the rifle, pull the side lever back until it comes to a gentle stop. Then move it forward to close it.

     

    3.2 To Charge Rifle with a Hand Pump

                          1. To ensure safe operation, you should refill the rifle without the distraction of others nearby, especially children or animals.

                          2. Be sure the rifle is unloaded.

                          3. Lay the rifle with its barrel pointed in a safe direction next to the pump. The pump's adapter probe should be within easy reach of the rifle�s adapter port.

                         Note: The adapter probe is included and is usually located in the receptor probe.

                         4. Check the rifle's pressure gauge. The pressure gauge is located under the wood stock or under the barrel, next to the receptor port (See Figure 3). If the rifle is not pressurized, the rifle must be first fully cocked before pressurizing.

                        5. Hand tighten the bleeder valve on the base of the pump.

                        6. Carefully insert the adapter probe from the pump hose into the rifle's exposed receptor port, taking care not to snag the double "O" ring on the edges of the dust cap. (See Figure 3).

     

     

     

    Figure 3

     

     

                           7. Use silicone grease periodically to lightly dress the "O" rings.

                           Caution: Do not use other products that may have a low flash point. It is extremely dangerous to use such products in this high-pressure area. This can lead to an explosion.

                          8. Pump the rifle about twelve times. Depending on the length of the hose, this should prime the hose enough to allow you to take an initial reading of the rifle's pressure level. If you hear air leaking, carefully check all connections. If you cannot resolve the air leaks, return the pump immediately to your authorized dealer for inspection.

     

     

     

    3.3 To Charge Rifle with a Scuba Tank

    1.      To ensure safe operation, you should refill the rifle without the distraction of others nearby, especially children or animals.

    2.      Be sure the rifle is unloaded.

    3.      Lay the rifle pointed in a safe direction next to the scuba tank. The adapter probe from the scuba tank should be within easy reach of the rifle's adapter port.

    4.      Check the rifle's pressure gauge under the wood stock. If the rifle is not pressurized, the rifle must be first fully cocked before pressurizing.

    5.      Connect the adapter hose to the scuba tank (standard 3,000 psi).

    6.      Hand-tighten the bleeder valve on hose.

    7.      Carefully insert the adapter probe from the other end of the hose into the rifle's exposed receptor port, taking care not to snag the double "O" ring on the edges of the dust cap.

    8.      Use silicone grease periodically to lightly dress the "O" rings.

    Caution: Do not use other products that may have a low flash point. It is extremely dangerous to use such products in this high pressure area. This can lead to an explosion.

    9.      Open the main valve to allow a slow, controlled infusion of air. Warning: filling the rifle too quickly will cause rapid wear of  "O" rings.

    10.  If you hear air leaking, carefully check all connections. If you cannot resolve the air leaks, return the hose adapter unit to your dealer for inspection.

    11.  Once the desired air pressure is reached, CLOSE THE MAIN VALVE on the scuba tank. Do not exceed 3,000 psi.

    12.  You can now safely remove the hose's probe adapter from the rifle's receptor port.

     

    3.4 Built-in Pressure Gauge

    1.      The rifle's pressure gauge is located under the wood stock or next to the receptor port (see Figure 3).

    2.      The pressure gauge gives an approximate reading and can differ on each rifle. For example, charged with 3,000 psi, one built-in pressure gauge might show 19 while another rifle's pressure gauge might show 21 with the same 3,000 psi charge.

    3.      Use the gauge as a convenient method to quickly check your power level for accurate shooting.

    a.       Note the pressure level on the gauge after you have fully charged the rifle.

    b.      Check the gauge again when you first notice a significant change in your target groups. This is due to the pressure dropping from firing a long series of shots.

    c.       This will allow you to anticipate from checking the level on the gauge when your point of impact will change due to the air pressure decreasing in the rifle.

    d.      Before long, you will be able to interpret the rifle's gauge and to judge how many shots are left before the rifle needs to be refilled.

     

    3.5 Storing the Rifle under Charge

              This rifle can be stored under charge. However, it must be stored safely, as with any loaded gun. When not in use, we highly recommend you store this rifle in a locked rifle safe.

     

    4. To Fire the Rifle

    4.1 Cocking and Loading the Rifle

    1.      To cock the rifle, pull the side lever back until it comes to a gentle stop. (See Figure 4).

     

    Figure 4

     

    2.      Insert pellet into chamber, nose first.

    3.      Move the side lever forward to close it.

    4.      The rifle is cocked and ready to fire.

    5.      This is a single shot rifle and must be cocked before each shot.

     

    4.2 Dry Firing the Rifle

                                      Dry firing does not harm this rifle.

     

    5. Maintenance

    5.1 To Clean the Barrel

               If the groups you shoot are off, the barrel may need to be cleaned.

    1.      Before proceeding, keep the rifle pointed in a safe direction at all times.

    2.      Engage the safety.

    3.      Make sure there are no pellets loaded.

    4.      Do not clean the barrel under charge. Empty the rifle's air pressure completely by dry-firing it with the rifle's barrel pointed downward and in a safe direction. It is best to clean the rifle when the rifle's air pressure is already low so you won't have much air to discharge.

    5.      Cock the rifle so that the grooved carrier retracts towards the left side of the receiver. DO NOT RETURN THE LEVER TO THE CLOSED POSITION. Leave it in it's downward (half-cocked) position.

    6.      With the carrier retracted, this allows the tip of the cleaning rod to completely run through the end of the barrel.

    7.      Do not use wood doweling for a cleaning rod. A broken rod in the barrel is extremely difficult to remove. A coated metal rod designed for cleaning air guns works best.

    8.      Saturate the cloth patches lightly with cleaning fluids or lubricants designed for air gun barrels.

    9.      Using the cleaning rod, push the saturated cloth patch through the muzzle until it exits at the other end.

    10.  There is no need to over-clean the barrel. Swab the barrel's bore with cloth patches until the last one comes out clean.

    11.  Never use an abrasive cleaning agent or a metal brush.

     

    5.2 Jammed Pellet(s)

    If the rifle fails to cock or the pellet fails to feed, do the following:

    1.      Point the rifle in a safe direction.

    2.      Engage the safety

    3.      Remove any loose pellets in the chambering area.

    4.      cock the rifle and discharge it in a safe direction. It is safe to dry fire this rifle.

    5.      This procedure avoids firing with more than one pellet accidentally chambered into the rifle's barrel.

    6.      If you still cannot clear the barrel, call your authorized dealer to arrange return of your rifle for repair.

    7.      Even with an experienced shooter, it is possible to cause further damage to the barrel by inserting a rod to dislodge jammed pellets.
