-Locate the safety of the trigger. Push the safety towards the trigger to put the safety on. The safety is on, and the airgun is "ON SAFE" when the lever is in the rear position when the lever is in the rear position (near the trigger).
-The letters "F" (fire) and "S" (safe) on the bottom of the trigger guard also indicate the appropriate position of the safety. Even when the safety is on, you should continue to handle the airgun safely. Don't point the gun at anything you don't intend to shoot.
Cocking Your Airgun:
Do not cock your airgun until you are ready to load and fire, since the only way to uncock your airgun is to fire it. Firing your airgun without a pellet in the chamber (dry firing) may cause damage to your airgun. LOADING Loading Your Airgun:
-Put the airgun "ON SAFE".
-Point the airgun in a safe direction.
-Grasp the airgun by the airgun grip with one hand and place your other hand around the barrel.
Make sure you do not touch the trigger or push the safety to the "OFF SAFE" position.
-Pull the barrel downward until it stops (Fig. 4A). Do not pull pas this point and do not use excessive force or speed when cocking your airgun.
-Some find it easier to cock the airgun when bracing the but of the airgun against your leg (Fig. 4B).
Make sure you do not pull the trigger while cocking the airgun or with the barrel in the down position. This may cause serious damage to the airgun.
-Be careful not to pinch your hand in the hinge area of the airgun.
-With the barrel in the open position, after it has been cocked, place one pellet, nose forward, into the breech (Fig.5). Make sure that the skirt of the pellet is flush with the face of the breech. Your airgun is now loaded and ready to fire. Keep the airgun "ON SAFE" until you are ready to shoot. Do not point at anything you don't intend to shoot.
CAUTION: Do not fire your airgun without a pellet in the chamber (dry fire). This may permanently damage your airgun.
-Move the barrel back to its original position by pushing the barrel up until it locks (Fig.6). Once again, be careful not to pinch your hands or fingers. Be sure the airgun is "ON SAFE" and pointed in a safe direction.
Unloading Your Airgun:
-Do not cock and load your airgun until you are ready to shoot since the only way to decock your airgun is to fire it in a safe direction. REMEMBER, choose the targets carefully and be sure that the area around the target is clear. THINK what you will hit if you miss the target! Do not store your gun cocked or loaded. CAUTION:
Use .177 caliber pellets only in your R1K77PG (Remington Genesis). Never reuse ammunition. Use of any other ammunition can cause injury to you or damage to the airgun. Removing a Jammed Pellet
-Put your airgun "ON SAFE" (Operating) Aiming and Firing the Airgun:
-Do not reload the airgun if a pellet is jammed.
-Break the barrel open slightly (without pulling the barrel all the way down to the point that it cocks the action) and look down the breech to see if the gun is jammed.
-If it is jammed, insert a cleaning rod into the breech and push the jammed pellet out of the muzzle. Don't try to reuse that pellet (Fig. 9)
CAUTION: Do not cock the airgun during the removal of a jammed pellet unless you plan on continuing to shoot.
-Remember; do not fire your airgun without a pellet in the chamber (dry fire). This may permanently damage your airgun.
-Do not leave the airgun cocked. This will weaken the main spring and cause damage to your airgun.
-If you are not able to unjam your airgun by following the unloading procedure, take no further action. An Authorized Service Station will unjam your airgun )no cost during the warranty period).
- You and others with you should always wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes.
-Always aim your airgun in a SAFE DIRECTION. When you are sure of your target and backstop, and the area around the target is clear, take the airgun "OFF SAFE" and pull the trigger to fire.
-Do not shoot at hard surfaces or at the surface of water. The pellet may bounce off or ricochet and hit someone or something you had not intended it to hit.
-Always choose your target carefully its is best to shoot at paper bull's-eye targets which are attached to a safe backstop. A heavy blanket should be hung behind the backstop to prevent ricochet should you miss the backstop.
-Your backstop should be checked for wear before and after each use. Replace your backstop if the surface is worn or damaged or if a ricochet occurs.
-Your airgun is designed for target shooting. Always remember to place your target carefully. THINK about what you will hit if you miss the target.
-The airgun is correctly aimed when the front sight is positioned exactly with the notch of the rear sight. The top of the front sight blade should be even with the top of the notch in the rear sight. The bull's-eye should appear to rest on the top of the front sight (Fig.7).
ADJUSTMENT Adjusting the Trigger:
-This gun is supplied with a trigger with an adjusting screw for adjustment of the second stage length (Fig.3) Sight Adjustment :
NOTE: This feature is added for advanced shooters. Most shooters can use the settings provided during manufacturing of the gun and should not need to make any modifications.
-Be sure airgun is "ON SAFE", unloaded and not cocked.
-To reduce the second stage length, rotate the adjusting screw counterclockwise.
-To increase the second stage length, rotate the adjusting screw clockwise.
Your airgun is equipped with a rear sight that is adjustable for both elevation(up or down) and windage (left or right). MAINTENANCE Maintaining Your Airgun :
-Elevation is set by means of the rear sight-elevating dial situated on the rear sight base. Turn the dial counterclockwise to make the pellet hit higher on the target and turn the dial clockwise to make the pellet hit lower on the target. (Fig.8)
-Windage is set by turning the windage dial located on the right side of the sight. Turn the dial counterclockwise to make the pellet hit to the left of the target and turn the dial clockwise to make the pellet hit to the right of the target. (Fig.8)
-To ensure that your air rifle maintains uniform power, it is important that you apply a drop of Crosman RMCOIL every few hundred shots into the compression chamber. (Fig10) The external metal parts should be cleansed with a cloth that has RMCOIL on it.
CAUTION: Use Crosman RMCOIL only and do not over-oil. To do so can cause possible damage to the gun and injury to bystanders.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to disassemble your airgun.
DO NOT MODIFY OR ALTER YOUR AIRGUN. Attempts to modify the airgun in any way inconsistent with this manual may make you airgun unsafe to use, cause serious injury or death, and will void the warranty.
If you drop your airgun, visually check to see that it works properly before you use it again. If anything seems changed, like a shorter or weaker trigger pull, this may mean worn out or broken parts. Call Crosman customer service for assistance before using your airgun again.
-Never point the airgun at any person or at anything that you do not intend to shoot.
-Always treat the airgun as though it is loaded and with the same respect as you would a firearm.
