WARNING: The rifle barrel of those models of these products that are so marked are chambered for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge only! Do not attempt to load .22 Short or any other rimfire or centerfire ammunition in the chamber. Failure to heed this warning is a misuse of the product and can result in a variety of malfunctions, some of which can result in serious personal injury or death.

WARNING: Because of the methods used to manufacture .22 Long Rifle ammunition, you may very rarely experience problems loading or unloading the rifle barrel.

WARNING: Always be sure the breech is fully open before inserting a cartridge. Attempting to insert a cartridge in a partially opened breech may create a hazardous situation and can result in serious injury or death.

WARNING: If you experience a problem loading or unloading the rifle barrel, or if the rim of the cartridge slips behind the extractor, do not attempt to close the gun or it may fire resulting in serious personal injury or death.
  1. If a live round is stuck in the barrel: Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Take extreme care to insure that nothing strikes or comes in contact with any portion of the shell casing.

    DANGER: If the shell casing is struck or moved, the primer may ignite firing the cartridge, resulting in serious personal injury or death. Take the rifle to a gunsmith to remove the jammed round.

  2. If a fired shell casing is stuck in the barrel: Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. With the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, and while staying clear of the muzzle, drop a .22 caliber cleaning rod down the barrel. The shell casing should drop free. If not, repeat the process. Take care not to damage the barrel. If the shell casing remains stuck, it should be removed by a reputable gunsmith.
  3. If a cartridge is stuck in the barrel and you are unsure if it fired or not: Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Treat it as a live round and handle in accordance with Item 1 above.
REMEMBER: The danger of personal injury or death associated with cartridges, fired or unfired, becoming stuck in a firearm can be avoided by using new, clean, factory loaded ammunition and never forcing ammunition into a chamber. If you have to force ammunition into the chamber, something is wrong! Stop! And take the rifle to a qualified gunsmith.
