    SAFETY
    Read this Owner's Manual before using your new airgun.
    The safe on the Patriot will be automatically engaged when cocking the rifle, thus preventing accidental discharge. Do not disengage the safe and pull the trigger when cocking and loading the rifle. Damage may occur if the barrel is allowed to snap shut under the influence of the powerful mainspring.
    RUNNING-IN
    During the running-in period, after the first few hundred rounds, check the tightness of the stock fixing screws, and periodically thereafter. Failure to keep the stock screws tight can result in broken screws. The correct tightening torque is 2lbs ft. (0.28 Kg m). Use WEBLUBE for lubrication of air rifles, as directed in this manual.

    General Instructions
           Patriot air rifles are supplied fully assembled, packed in specially designed protective boxes, and are ready for immediate use once familiarisation with the rifle and an appreciaton of the basic safety rules have been completed.

    The Basic Safety Rules Are:
    1) Treat every rifle as if it is loaded.
    2) Never point a rifle at anyone, or allow anyone to point a rifle at you, even if you know it is not loaded.
    3) Always carry the rifle so that the direction of the muzzle is under control even if you sturnble.
    4)Always be sure of your target and what lies behind it before you squeeze the trigger.
    5) Never leave a loaded rifle unattended.
    6) Beware of targets that tend to cause ricochets


    Operating Instructions

         The end plug sub-assembly, complete with spring damper (L57), and mainspring, can now be withdrawn. Pull the mainspring and damper off the body end plug location spigot, then knock the damper out of the mainspring. Take care not to lose the piston weight (L47) which is housed within the mainspring recess of the piston.
         If the mainspring shows signs of buckling the velocity is likely to be improved by fitting a new one complete with a new damper.

    Fitting A New Mainspring and Damper
    Lubricate the inside and outside diameter of the mainspring with WEBLUBE, insert the damper and push firmly home until the location flange is flush with the end of the spring.
         Fit the mainspdng/damper assembly to the end plug location spigot pushing firmly until the flange of the damper is supported by its location face.
         The preceding paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 relate to the necessary procedure to change the mainspring only. Should it become necessary to dismantle further for a major overhaul or to replace worn or damaged parts, adopt the procedure stated in the following paragraphs.

    End Plug Sub-Assembly
          Untie the string or remove the elastic band from around the end plug which is holding the safe slide in its slot. Then, lift the slide out taking care not to lose 3/16" (4.76mm) diameter nylon ball (L61). The safe detent spring (L62) can be pulled out of its pocket if required. To removed the safe toggle (L65), tap out its fulcrum pin (L64) using a 1/8" (3mm) diameter drift.
         When re-assembling the end plug sub-assembly do not forget to fit the safe slide detent spring and ball and take care to fit the toggle correctly oriented, ie, short leg vertically upward engaged in the slot of the safe slide, long leg sloping rearwards towards the domed end of the end plug. Ensure that the safe slide is in the forward position before tying in position to make re-assembly easier.

    Sear/ Trigger Mechanism
         Lie the action down on its side with the barrel pointing to the left (The 4 circlips (L44) retaining the sear / trigger mechanism will be uppermost).
    1) Remove all the circlips.
    2) Remove auxiliary sear spring stop pin (L41) whilst holding the leg of the auxiliary sear spring (L40) out of the location groove with a screwdriver. Gently relax the spring tension when the stop pin has been removed. Tap out auxiliary sear fulcrum pin (L42) then withdraw auxiliary sear (L39) and its spring (L40).
    3) Tap out trigger fulcrum pin (L42) then withdraw trigger (L32) complete with its return spring (L34).
    4) Tap out cocking dog fulcrum pin (L42) whilst holding the main sear (L35) upwards to relieve the spring pressure on the fulcrum pin. Allow main sear to descend under its spring pressure.
    5) Tap out fulcrum pin (L42) of main sear then withdraw sear complete with its spring (L36), together with the cocking dog (L37) housed in its central slot.
      Re-assemble in the reverse order making sure the parts are clean and well lubricated with Weblube oil.

    Barrel Assembly Complete
         To remove the barrel assembly intact, remove the barrel pivot lock screw (L17) then the barrel pivot (L14) complete with the barrel pivot washer (L15). Slide the assembly away from the breech face until,the hidden end of loading lever (L22) aligns itself with the exit hole in the body tube, then ease the end of the lever out of the hole. Remove the barrel housing spacer (L18) and disc washer (L19) from their recesses in the barrel housing.

    1) With the open hand, sharply tap the muzzle end of the barrel down to open the spring lock (fig. 1). Then using the barrel as a lever, cock the rifle as far as it will go; the safe and sear will be heard to automatically engage.

    NB
    a) Keep the forefinger of the supporting hand clear of the trigger whilst cocking the rifle (fig. 2)
    b) Always leave the safe (L60) fully engaged with the barrel in the open position.
    c) Never 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 of the barrel and push the pellet with the finger or thumb only until flush with the end (fig. 3).Close the barrel; the spring lock will automatically engage.



    3) When preparing to fire, point the gun towards the target and take a comfortable stance. When ready to fire push the safe as far as it will go to the fire position, indicated by the red dots appearing. Squeeze the trigger when ready to fire (fig.4)

    Routine Care
    1) Do not fire the rifle without a pellet in the barrel. The only time you have to do this is when adjusting the trigger pull.
    2) Do not leave the rifle loaded or cocked when not in use. Leaving it cocked will reduce the life of the mainspring.
    3) After use, wipe the rifle with an oily rag to prevent corrosion. Use Weblube gun oil.
    4) Occasionally apply three or four drops of Weblube gun oil to:

    a) Piston skirt. Access is through the loading lever slots in the stock and body tube assembly (fig. 5)
    b) Area of body tube contacted by loading lever stop pin (L24), adjacent to loading lever slot, (very occasionally when stock is removed).
    c) Trigger mechanism fulcrum pins (L42). (Very occasionally when stock is removed).
    d) Safe slide (L60).
    e) Barrel pivot (LI 4).
    f).Loading lever fulcrum pin (L25).
    g) Piston seal (L45) Access is through the air free hole in the breech face. Important, serious damage to the piston seal may result if it is excessively lubricated.
    h) Barrel Locking plunger (fig.6).
    5) For optimum accuracy and power use Webley pellets

    Trigger Adjustment
        The 2 -stage trigger is set at the factory to give optimum performance, i.e., a light first stage pre- travel up to the release point, then a crisp release with increased pressure at the second stage.
    If a shorter pre-travel and longer second stage is required, turn the adjusting screw (L33) clockwise.
         Conversely, if a long first stage right up to the release point is required, turn the adjusting screw anti-clockwise. Slight adjustments only at one time should be made since the setting is very sensitive.Trigger adjustment is illustrated in (fig. 7).

    Adjusting the Rearsight (Zeroing)
         Aways take the same point of aim during adjustment, regardless of the resultant point of impact. Shoot at least five pellets between adjustments, using the average of the group for reference.

    Vertical Adjustment
         To correct a gun shooting high, turn the rearsight elevation screw (L85) clockwise to lower the leaf (L76). To correct a gun shooting low, turn the rearsight elevation screw anti-clockwise to raise the leaf.

    Windage Adjustment
         To correct a gun shooting to the right turn the rearsight windage screw (L78) anti-clockwise to move the blade (L77) to the left. To correct a gun shooting to the left, turn the rearsight windage screw clockwise to move the blade to the right.

    Tectinical Service Instructions.

    Fitting A New Breech Seal.
         Should the breech seal (L21) become damaged or worn, indicated by loss of velocity and air escaping at the breech, a new one should be fitted. To remove the old one, cock the gun, check that the safe is applied then insert a sharp, pointed implement into the annular space occupied by the seal.
    Pierce the seal and flip it out taking care not to damage or mark the breech face or the seal recess. (fig. 8)
          When fitting a new breech seal ensure that its housing is clean and free of any obstructions. The radiused end of the seal must face outwards so as to lie against the breech face of the action. Ensure that the seal is located in its recess as far as it will go all the way round and that the protrusion above the face is about .020" (0.5mm).

    Fitting A Rearsight Complete
         When required, the rearsight can be removed or replaced as a complete sub-assembly (L93). The assembly is secured by 2-4BA caphead screws (L90).
    Access to the fixing screws and their lockwashers (L91) is through the 2 holes in the leaf (L76). Use the allen key provided (fig. 9). The correct tightening torque is 2ibs.ft (0.28 Kg m).

    Major Overhaul or repair (For a qualified repairer)

    Changing The Mainspring and Damper
        The need to change the mainspring (L53) will become necessary only after the rifle has been fired many thousands of times. The need to change will be indicated by a gradual loss of pellet velocity not attributable to any other cause, eg, air leaks, mechanical damage, etc.

    Removing The Old Spring
         First ensure that the rifle is not cocked then dismantle in the following sequence:
    1) Detach the stock (L123) by removing the 2 stock fixing screws front (L96), trigger guard screw front (L97), then trigger guard screw rear (L98).
    2) Check that the safe is in the fire position, ie, pushed forward, then, using either a strong elastic band or a piece of string, firmly surround the end plug (L58) embracing the safe slide to keep it correctly located whilst removing the end plug from the action (fig.10).
    3) Hold the gun upright, with the body end plug resting on a table or work bench. Avoid contact with the safe slide by bridging it or overhanging the edge of the bench. Press firmly down against the residual spring pressure. (This will be about 100lbs. [45 Kg] on a new gun) then tap out the body end plug pin (L59). Ease the pressure off allowng the gun to rise against the spring pressure (Fig.11)

    To dismantle the loading lever from the barrel assembly, tap out the loading lever fulcrum pin (L25) - the rivetted edge will collapse on removal - and withdraw the loading lever from the barrel housing.
         To dismantle the barrel lock mechanism, tap out the barrel locking plunger pin (L66) using a 1/8" (3mm) diameter drift (Fig. 12).
         Compress the barrel locking plunger spring (L29) by pushing the barrel locking plunger (L27) and withdraw the drift.
         Ease the pressure off the barrel locking plunger allowing the plunger to rise against the spring pressure. The barrel locking plunger together with the barrel locking plunger spring can now be withdrawn from the barrel housing.
         When reassembling the lock mechanism it is advisable to hold the barrel housing in a vice, using soft clamps or cloth to protect its finish.
         Assemble the barrel locking plunger pin approx 1/8" (3mm) into its hole on one side of the barrel housing - the pin is a drive fit.
         Refit the barrel locking plunger spring and barrel locking plunger to the barrel housing. Compress the barrel locking plunger against the spring pressure until its slot straddles the barrel locking plunger pin hole.
         Push the 1/8" (3mm) diameter drift now used as a slave peg, through the open end of the barrel locking plunger pin hole to retain the barrel locking plunger spring and barrel locking plunger in the barrel assembly.
         Drive the barrel locking plunger pin through until it lies centrally within its hole. This operation will push the slave peg out.
         Re-assemble the loading lever to the barrel housing. On re-assembly it will be possible to re-rivet the collapsed end of the fulcrum pin by using an old ball bearing, approx 7/32" (5.5mm) diameter to swell the end out taking care to rigidly support the opposite end of the pin.
         Refit the barrel assembly to the body tube in the reverse order.

    Piston and Seal Assembly
         The piston and seal assembly can only be removed when the mainspring, sear / trigger mechanism and loading lever have been dismantled from the body tube.
         Insert a small screwdriver through the loading lever slot in the body tube, then carefully push or tap the piston (L46) towards the open end of the tube taking care not to touch and damage the piston seal (L45). When sufficient piston skirt has emerged, grasp it firmly and pull it right out.
         Inspect the piston seal for wear and damage - do not dismantle it from the piston unless renewal is necessary. To remove the old seal, unclip it off the piston location using a screwdriver blade as a lever, alternatively slice through its section with a sharp safety razor blade, penknife or Stanley knife.

         Before fitting a new piston seal, first clean, then lubricate the location recess of the piston. Spring the new piston seal over the piston location and push it against the shoulder of the piston, the seal will then automatically clip into its recess. If necessary, the piston may be immersed in boiling water until it becomes sufficiently pliable to clip over the piston (wipe the seal dry before fitting). Check the seal is located evenly around the piston (fig 13.)
         Oil the piston assembly, then wipe the front faces of the seal and piston dry. Clean and lightly oil the body tube bore - do not over lubricate.
         Refit the piston assembly to the body tube assembly, ensuring their loading lever slots are aligned with one another.

    Important Note
         The lip of the piston seal is an interference fit in the body tube. As the piston assembly is pushed down the body tube, take care not to damage the piston seal lip as it passes over the body end plug pin holes, trigger mechanism slot hidden by the cage and the loading lever slot.


         To minimise the risk of damage, deflect inwardly the portion of lip exposed through the holes and slots using a blunt instrument e.g. the blade of a screwdriver (fig. 14)

    General Dismantling And Re-Assembly Hints
    Foresight

         The correct tightening torque for the foresight fixing screw (L71) is 21lbs ft (0.28Kgm).
         A muzzle blanking screw (L72) is provided to seal the tapped hole in the muzzle should the rifle be used with the foresight removed.

    Rearsight
         Should it become necessary to dismantle the blade assembly which provides windage adjustment first remove the circlip (L82) then unscrew the windage screw (L78) until the windage screw detent plunger (L79) becomes visible. Further unscrewing will allow the plunger to escape - take care to catch it as it emerges.
         Do not forget to replace the rearsight leaf elevating spring (L87) when re-fitting the rearsight assembly to the action. The correct tightening torque for the fixing screws is 2lbs ft (0.28Kgm)

    Fitting the optional silencer
         Unscrew the muzzle cap (L50) complete with its washer 'o' ring (L51) from the muzzle of the barrel. Store these components in a safe place for possible future use.
         Screw the silencer and its washer'o'ring into the muzzle and hand tighten.
