Are you set to go Beth...?
Do you need any more info on this sweet .22mag ?
You holler, and we will come a runnin'....
You load the tube
Cock it with the lever
It's ready to fire [if the safety is in off position]
Each time you cock it with the lever, it pushes the hammer back
into the firing position.
If the hammer is 'cocked' back....and you choose not to fire it,
you must 'manually' [and carefully] lower the hammer down.
It will/should have [the hammer] three positions.....
One against the block/firing pin
One a single click rearward [to back off the firing pin]
One all the way back...in full cock mode
If it is fully cocked [hammer all the way back] and a
live round is in the chamber, and you wish to un-cock it,
put the safety to the 'on' position before lowering the hammer
manually against the bolt/firing pin.
Cycle it empty [cock it with the lever with no ammo]
and you will see the functioning of the gun.
Practice [without ammo] de-cocking it after you cycle it
with the lever.
You be gonna fixin' ta luv dis lever gun Darlin'......
[as we say down here]
We are gonna turn you into a cowgirl yet.....
