    Read all directions before firing or adjusting the rifle. Refer to the diagrams for location of parts named in the following directions. Always point the rifle in a safe direction away from you and others before adjusting it. Before adjusting or disassembling the rifle, always empty the air pressure completely by dry-firing it in a safe direction.

    1. Safety Mechanism
    1. Before proceeding, keep the rifle pointed in a safe direction at all times.
    2. The cross-bolt safety is the small bolt located directly behind the trigger. This bolt is marked with a red, danger ring on its left side.
    3. To engage the safety, push the bolt completely to the right (away from the magazine) so that red ring is not visible.
    4. To release the safety, push the bolt to the left (toward the magazine) so that the red, danger ring appears. This allows the trigger to be pulled.
    5. It is a good idea to set and release the safety several times before cocking the rifle to become familiar with this action. Point the rifle in a safe direction and pull the trigger each time to get the feel of the safety.
    1. 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. In an over-filled condition (above 3,000 PSI), the regulator will likely malfunction and cause the rifle to fire at a much lower velocity.

    The quick-fill dust cap is located at the end of the lower air reservoir tube below the barrel. DO NOT REMOVE IT! Simply rotate the cap in either direction until the female receptor port is exposed. After you finish re-filling the rifle, rotate the dust cap to close off the receptor port. Any dirt here can cause the rifle's valves to fail.

    To Charge the Rifle with the Hand Pump

    1. The Hand Pump is the most convenient method to charge your rifle. This sturdy pump is light to carry.
    2. To ensure safe operation, you should refill the rifle without the distraction of others nearby, especially children or animals.
    3. Be sure the rifle is unloaded.
    4. Lay the rifle 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.
    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.
    7. Use silicone grease (sold in scuba diving stores) to dress the o-rings before each fill. 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 twelve times. This should prime the hose enough to allow you to take an initial reading of the rifle's current pressure level. If you hear air leaking, carefully check all connections. If you cannot resolve the air leaks, return the pump immediately to your dealer for inspection.
    9. Begin pumping in 20 stroke sets, taking a reading each time of the pressure level and allowing at least a 2 minute cooling period in-between each set, especially when the pressure reaches 2500 p.s.i. (175 kg/cm2). Do not exceed 3,000 p.s.i.
    10. The best technique to operate the pump is to use your upper body weight to push down on the pump, keeping your arms rigid. This method is less fatiguing than using only your arm strength to operate the pump.
    11. Once the rifle has reached the desired pressure, open the bleeder valve on the base of the pump. You will hear a loud rush of air escape from the small hole in the base of the pump. You can now safely remove the pump's probe adapter from the rifle's receptor port.

    To Charge the Rifle from 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. Connect the adapter hose to the scuba tank (standard 3,000 p.s.i.)
    5. Hand tighten the bleeder valve on hose.
    6. 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.
    7. Use silicone grease (sold in scuba diving stores) to dress the o-rings before each fill. 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. Open the main valve to allow a slow, controlled infusion of air. 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.
    9. Once the desired air pressure is reached, CLOSE THE MAIN VALVE on the scuba tank. Do not exceed 3,000 p.s.i.
    10. OPEN THE BLEED VALVE. You will hear a loud rush of air escape from the bleeder valve.
    11. You can now safely remove the hose's probe adapter from the rifle's receptor port.
    1. Built-in Pressure Gauge
    1. The rifle's pressure gauge is located at the end of the lower air reservoir tube.
    2. The pressure gauge gives an approximate reading and can differ on each rifle. For example, charged with 3,000 p.s.i., one built-in pressure gauge might show 19, while another rifle's pressure gauge might show 21 with the same 3,000 p.s.i. charge.
    3. Use the gauge as a convenient method to quickly check your power level for accurate shooting.
    1. For example, note the pressure level on the gauge after you have fully charged the rifle (i.e. 3,000 p.s.i.).
    2. Then check the gauge again when you first notice a change in the impact point due to the pressure dropping from firing a long series of shots.
    3. 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.
    4. Before long you will be able to interpret the rifle's gauge and judge how many shots are left before the rifle needs to be refilled.
    1. Storing the Rifle Under Charge

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

    1. To Load the Pellet
    1. Before proceeding, keep the rifle pointed in a safe direction at all times.
    2. Slide open the (brass) breech cover fully to expose the barrel.
    3. Insert the pellet completely into the barrel. Close the breech cover completely.
    1. To Cock the Rifle
    1. This rifle has two cocking positions for low power and high power.
    2. Before proceeding, keep the rifle pointed in a safe direction at all times.
    3. Engage the safety. This is very important. Pulling the trigger with the cocking lever open is very dangerous and voids the warranty.
    4. Grasp the bolt handle. Draw the bolt rearward until your hear it engage at the first click. The bolt should be positioned roughly �� inch from being fully engaged. This is for low power firing.
    5. Continue to draw the bolt rearward completely. You will hear the second click. The bolt should now be positioned at the end of the slot. This is for high power firing.
    1. To Uncock the Rifle
    1. Before proceeding, keep the rifle pointed in a safe direction at all times.
    2. Engage the safety.
    3. Point the rifle in a safety direction in case the rifle discharges accidentally.
    4. Draw the bolt rearward slightly past its stopping point so that you feel some resistance.
    5. Still holding the bolt handle securely, release the safety and pull the trigger. You will feel the bolt handle pull in the direction away from the trigger. Gently ease the bolt towards closed position.
    6. Point the rifle in a safe direction and pull the trigger to confirm the rifle is not in a firing mode.
    1. Dry Firing the Rifle
    1. This rifle is not harmed by dry firing it.
    1. To Clean the Barrel
    1. If the groups you shoot are off, the barrel probably needs cleaning.
    2. Before proceeding, keep the rifle pointed in a safe direction at all times.
    3. Engage the safety.
    4. Open the breech cover.
    5. Do not clean the barrel under charge. Empty the rifle's air pressure completely by dry-firing it 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.
    6. With the breech cover opened, 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 airgun works best.
    8. Saturate the cloth patches with cleaning fluids or lubricants designed for airgun 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 metal brush.
    1. To Clear the Barrel of a Jammed Pellet(s)
    1. Before proceeding, keep the rifle pointed in a safe direction at all times.
    2. Engage the safety.
    3. Open the breech cover.
    4. Use a metal rod designed for cleaning rifles to clear the barrel. Push it through from the muzzle to the other end. The jammed pellet should come out.
    1. Low and High Power Settings

    At 3,000 p.s.i., using a 58 grain 9mm pellet, you should see the approximate results:

    Low power: approximately 700+ f.p.s.
    High power: approximately 900+ f.p.s.

    1. Adjusting The Rear Sight

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

    Move the rear sight in the same direction you wish to move the point of impact. Adjustment for windage (left and right) and elevation (up and down) is accomplished by the use of two separate sets of screws. The two screws in each set work in conjunction with each other. YOU WILL ALWAYS LOOSEN ONE SCREW BEFORE YOU TIGHTEN THE OTHER.

    The two controlling screws for windage are located on both sides of the notched sight.

    To move the sight and point of impact to the left:

    1. Loosen the set screw on the left side and tighten the screw on the right side in the same small increment. As you tighten the screw on the right side, the rear sight will move left. It will only move as far as you had allowed when you loosened the left screw.
    2. For example, turn the left screw one-half of a turn and then turn the right screw one-half of a turn or until it is snug (do not over-tighten).
    3. When you are finished adjusting the windage, check to be sure the set screws on both sides are tightened snuggly.

    To move the sight and point of impact to the right:

    1. Loosen the set screw on the right side and tighten the screw on the left side in the same small increment. As you tighten the screw on the left side, the rear sight will move right. It will only move as far as you had allowed when you loosened the right screw.
    2. For example, turn the right screw one-half of a turn and then turn the left screw one-half of a turn or until it is snug (do not over-tighten).
    3. When you are finished adjusting the windage, check to be sure the set screws on both sides are tightened snuggly.

    The two controlling screws for elevation are located ahead of the notched sight.

    To move the point of impact higher:

    1. Loosen the front screw and tighten the rear screw.
    2. For example, turn the front screw one-half of a turn and then turn the rear screw one-half of a turn or until it is snug (do not over-tighten).

    To move the point of impact lower:

    1. Loosen the rear screw and tighten the front screw.
    2. For example, turn the rear screw one-half of a turn and then turn the front screw one-half of a turn or until it is snug (do not over-tighten).

    REMEMBER, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. First loosen the first screw and then tighten the other snuggly. The above two adjustments are not difficult to make. However, before proceeding, think out carefully what you are trying to accomplish and exercise good judgment and caution as you are making the adjustments.

    1. Recommended lubricants
    1. Silicone grease (solid in scuba diving stores) or Mineral Oil for the o-rings on the adapter probe.
    2. Dow Corning Molykote 33 grease for the exposed metal parts inside the receiver cover.
