. When lubricating your air rifle, use our #088 Lubricating Qil (available for order from the factory). DO
NOT use gun oil or any other oil which contains solvents. ., |
* Both the barrel and tube are made of a rust resistant, hard, non-ferrous alloy and require no special
treatment.

* Only the pump lever pivot point, crosshead pivot point, and the lever pivot rivet should occasionally be
oiled LIGHTLY (one or two drops). Don’t over-oil. This can cause damage to your rifle. (Fig. 9)
* If the accuracy of your rifle falls off, run a firm but free fitting patch through the barrel. Be sure to use
a cleaning rod of the proper size that will not damage the barrel.
+ Tampering with the gun or attempts to change the gun in any way make it unsafe to use. If you drop
your gun, check it 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. Don't use it again until you've
had it checked by our factory service department.

Step 8. Reviewing Safety
Don't point at anything you do not intend to shoot. Always aim in a SAFE DIRECTION.
Always wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes.
Don't pinch hands or fingers when closing forearm.
Use .20 cal. pellets only in your C9 Series rifle. Use .177 cal. pellets only in your Model 397. Use .22 cal. pellets
only in your Mode! 392. Never reuse ammunition.
Don't shoot at hard surfaces or at the surface of water. The pellet may bounce off and hit someone or something
you had not intended to hit.
Always keep the air rifle on safe until you are ready to shoot. .
Stop using a backstop if it becomes worn. Place backstop in a location that will be safe should the backstop fail.
Do not attempt to disassemble or tamper with your gun. Return your airgun to the factory for repair.
Always handle your rifle as if it were loaded.
Always check to see if the rifle is on safe and unloaded when getting it from another person or from storage.
Don't put the rifle away loaded or charged with air. :
Step 9. Choosing Targets
Always choose your targets carefully. ltis best to shoot at bullseye targets which are attached to a safe backstop
such as the 850 Target Trap. (Target Trap can be ordered directly from the factory.) A heavy blanket should be
hung behind the Target Trap to prevent ricochet or pellets bouncing off should you miss the backstop. Always
wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes. -
Don't shoot at hard surfaces or at the surface of water. The pellet may bounce off and hit someone or something
you had not intended to hit.
Your backstop should be checked for wear before and after each use. Stop using any backstop if the surface
is worn or damaged or if the pellet bounces off or ricochets.
Your airgun is designed for target shooting and is suited for both indoor and outdoor use. Always remember to
place your target carefully: THINK what you will hit if you miss your target!
