Safety Loading and firing 1.
With the open hand, sharply tap the muzzle end of the barrel down to open the spring lock then using the barrel as a lever cock the rifle as far as it will go; the sear will be heard to automatically engage.
N.B. Keep the finger of the right hand clear of the trigger whilst cocking the rifle. Also, never allow the barrel to spring back before the sear is engaged nor pull the trigger until the barrel is returned to the firing position.
Observing this procedure will avoid inadvertent damage to the gun by allowing the barrel to swing back violently under the influence of the mainspring. 2.
Insert a pellet into the breech end of the barrel until flush with the end do not leave the skirt of the pellet protruding otherwise the joint washer will quickly be worn out.
Close the barrel to engage the spring lock.
