Safe Handling Procedures
1. Always keep the muzzle of the firearm pointed in a safe direction, and away
from all humans, including yourself.
2. Handle every firearm as if it were loaded.
3. Always check to be certain the firearm is unloaded - never take anyone
else’s word for it.
4. Always keep and carry your firearm empty except when you are ready
to shoot.
5. Do not drink alcoholic beverages or take drugs before or during any shooting activity.
6. Always wear ear protection when shooting.
7. Always wear protective shooting glasses when shooting.
8. Always make sure your firearm is clean. The barrel bore, chamber and action should be clean and free from obstructions.
9. Use only clean, dry, original, high grade commercially manufactured ammunition in good condition, appropriate to the caliber of your firearm.
10. Never put your finger inside the trigger guard or squeeze the trigger
until you are aiming at a target and ready to shoot. This will prevent
you from firing the firearm negligently.
11. Always be sure of your target and the area behind it before you pull
the trigger. A bullet can travel through or past your target up to 5
miles before it stops!
12. If your firearm fails to fire, keep it pointed toward the target or a
safe open area and wait at least 30 seconds. If it is a hangfire (slow or
delayed ignition) the round will fire within 30 seconds. Although it is very rare,
you need to be aware of and prepared for this possibility. If the round does not
fire, eject the round and examine the primer. If the firing pin indent is light or
non-existent, have the firearm examined by a professional gunsmith. If the
firing pin indent on the primer appears normal, assume faulty ammunition
and separate the misfired round from all other live ammunition and empty
cases. Make certain the bore is clear by removing the bolt and looking
through it. Dispose of misfired rounds in accordance with the ammunition
manufacturer’s instructions.
13. Never use your firearm if it fails to function properly. Never force a jammed
bolt, a round may explode causing serious injury or death, and severe

damage to your firearm. Before each shooting session, and before loading,
give the firearm a safety check and visual inspection. If you find
something that seems incorrect, do not load or fire. Ask a professional
gunsmith for help or call LEGENDARY ARMS WORKS.
Never shoot at a hard surface such as a rock nor a liquid surface such as
water. The bullet could ricochet, hitting you, another person or unidentified
object, causing injury, death or property damage.
Always make sure the firearm is unloaded before cleaning, storing, or
traveling. Ammunition should be removed with the action open before
laying it down or handing it to another person, so that it cannot be fired.
Always store your firearm and ammunition in separate, locked containers,
out of the reach and sight of children, or anyone else who should not
handle the firearm.
THE PREVIOUS SAFE HANDLING PROCEDURES ARE NOT INTENDED TO CONSTITUTE A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF ALL SAFE HANDLING PROCEDURES OF A FIREARM. IF YOU REMAIN CONCERNED
REGARDING THE SAFE HANDLING OF YOUR FIREARM, PLEASE
CONSULT AN APPROVED NRA INSTRUCTOR OR OTHER SIMILARLY
QUALIFIED INDIVIDUAL OR ORGANIZATION TO ASSIST YOU.
1. SAFETY FEATURES
Three Position Safety
Refer to Figure 1. The safety catch lever has three positions
1. Firing position - the safety lever is fully engaged to the front (toward the muzzle).
The firearm is ready to fire in this position. Never move the safety to the fire position unless the muzzle is pointed in a safe
direction.
2. Middle position - the safety lever is perpendicular to the bolt. This position locks the
firing pin, but the bolt may be opened. This
way an unfired cartridge can be unloaded
while the safety remains operational.
3. Fully on position - the safety lever is fully
engaged to the rear (toward the recoil pad).
Both the firing pin and bolt are locked.
2. OPERATING
Loading
Be sure you have the correct ammunition. Barrels are marked with the correct
caliber. Lift the bolt handle and pull it all the way back. Insert a cartridge into
3
the magazine and press it down until it snaps in the magazine. If you choose
to load more than one round, press each cartridge down with your thumb until
it snaps in the magazine, and back to the rear of the magazine. Continue this
process until the magazine is loaded to capacity, and then close the bolt. Close
the bolt by pushing it forward and then locking it down.
The LAW M 704 rifle is designed to be a true controlled round feed action. The
cartridge is held by the extractor during the life cycle of the round. To fully
employ the controlled round aspect of the action cycle, it is recommended that
the bolt be cycled open and closed with concentrated effort and movement.
Cycle the action smoothly and positively with gusto to ensure that the round is
properly engaged and chambered. Working the action slowly with light force
may cause the round not to chamber properly.
Unloading
CAUTION: Always unload your firearm immediately after use and prior to
cleaning and storage to minimize the risk of accidental discharge. To unload
your firearm, point the rifle in a safe direction, engage the safety, unlock the
bolt by lifting it up, and then pull straight back to eject the cartridge. Next release the magazine floorplate allowing any remaining cartridges in the magazine to fall out of the firearm.
Firing
CAUTION: Always wear and encourage others to wear ear and eye protection
when shooting.
Load the firearm as previously described. If your firearm fails to fire, keep it
pointed toward the target or a safe open area and wait at least 30 seconds. If
it is a hangfire (slow ignition) the round will fire within 30 seconds. Although
it is very rare, you need to be aware of and prepared for this possibility. If the
round does not fire, eject the round and examine the primer. If the firing pin
indent is light, off center, or non-existent, have the firearm examined by a
professional gunsmith. If the firing pin indent on the primer appears normal,
assume faulty ammunition, separate the misfired round from other live ammunition and empty cases, reload and carry on firing. Dispose of misfired rounds
in accordance with the ammunition manufacturer’s instructions.
CAUTION: Keep firearm pointing in a safe direction, and unload as previously described. If you cock your firearm but do not fire it, apply the safety
until ready to fire. If you lose the opportunity to fire, safely unload your firearm as previously described. Remember, if a round is in the chamber, there is
a risk of negligent discharge. Never leave a firearm cocked and ready to fire.
The firearm could easily be accidentally discharged, causing injury, death, or
property damage.

WARNING: When a round is in the chamber, the firearm may accidentally
discharge if it is dropped or handled in a way it was not designed, regardless
of the position of any of the safety devices. Do not chamber a cartridge until
the firearm is in your hand and you are ready to fire. Clear the firearm immediately after shooting. We do not recommend carrying this firearm with a
cartridge in the chamber. Remember ALL safeties on this firearm are mechanical devices and they CAN FAIL. YOU SHOULD NEVER DEPEND ON A
SAFETY DEVICE. Instead, depend upon safe firearm handling procedures,
many of which are described in this manual.
Removing and installing the bolt
Lift the bolt (unlock it) and pull it straight back. Depress the bolt stop on the left
side of the action (muzzle pointing away from you), and remove the bolt. Install
the bolt by aligning the bolt lugs in the action raceways and push it forward.
There is no need to depress the bolt release.
Disassembling the bolt
Important: Put the safety in the middle position and remove the bolt from the
rifle. Do not try to disassemble the bolt without the safety being in the middle
position. Depress the locking tab on the upper left
hand side of the bolt sleeve, rotate the bolt 1/4 turn
clockwise, then pull straight back. The LAW M 704
bolt is keyed, not threaded. Disassembly of the bolt
is not required or recommended for normal maintenance. The exception is if the rifle has been submerged in water.
Removing the barreled action from the stock
Remove both action
screws using a 5/32 hex wrench. When reassembling,
torque action screws to no more than 65 inch pounds.
Removing the barreled action from the stock is not
required or recommended for normal maintenance.
The exception is if the rifle has been submerged in
water or exposed to heavy rain. Disassembly of the
magazine floorplate, follower and spring is not recommended as incorrect reassembly will cause the rifle not to feed properly.
Triggers
Your new LAW M 704 rifle is equipped with one
of the finest rifle triggers, a Timney #510. Our
trigger has a factory preset trigger weight between 3.0lbs and 3.5 lbs. The Timney #510 trigger is adjustable in trigger weight from 1.5lbs to
5
4.0lbs. For best performance and safety, Legendary Arms Works recommends a
minimum trigger weight of 2.5lbs when used in conjunction with our 3-position
safety.
Please reference the included instruction manual from Timney regarding trigger
weight adjustment. If the instructions are missing, they can be found on the Timney website under the “Remington 700 trigger” at www.TimneyTriggers.com.
The Timney Trigger has a lifetime warranty, and is warranted independently of the
LAW M 704 rifle. For any warranty concerns, please contact Timney Triggers by
phone at 1-866-484-6639, or on the web at service@timneyusa.com.
**Please note: The LAW M 704 rifle is designed to work exclusively with the
Timney #510 trigger. We at Legendary Arms Works feel the Timney trigger is the
best choice for our rifle, and do not recommend replacement or substitution. Any
alteration to the Trigger, the Cocking Piece, or substitution of different triggers will
VOID the rifle warranty, and may render the rifle inoperable or UNSAFE.
Muzzle Brake/Cap Warning
Never attempt to install, remove, or adjust the
brake or cap while the rifle is loaded. Remember,
barrels get hot when shooting. Allow adequate
time to cool before attempting to remove or adjust your brake (or cap) to avoid getting burned
by a hot barrel.
To remove the muzzle brake insert a 9/64” steel rod or Allen wrench entirely
through two holes in the muzzle brake. Using the rod for leverage turn the muzzle brake counter clockwise looking down into the muzzle. It may be necessary
to use a small block of wood or plastic mallet to lightly tap the rod to break the
muzzle brake threads loose from the barrel.
The muzzle brake or muzzle cap supplied with the rifle should always be checked
for tightness before firing the rifle. Brakes and caps can work loose and can be
dangerous if not checked. If the brake or cap comes loose and the rifle is fired,
fragments of the bullet could be redirected and cause injury or death.
Another unique and potential problem with brakes is that small twigs or other
foreign objects could get stuck in the brake. We feel this is no more likely than
the possibility of getting something such as mud lodged in the muzzle end of
any barrel, but it is something the shooter should be aware of and watchful for.
Use common sense when shooting and always pay attention to your surroundings, your target, and the condition of your rifle.
Our best recommendation is the shooter decide how he/she would like the
rifle set up, with brake or without, and apply a couple drops of 271 Red LOCTITE to the threads to eliminate worries about either the brake or cap coming
loose.

Maintenance
The LAW M 704 rifle is designed to handle nearly all environmental conditions commonly encountered in the field. Keep all metal parts of your rifle
clean and well oiled. This is particularly important in adverse climates and
conditions. Rust represents neglect! Rust in the barrel and/or chamber can
cause excess pressures resulting in serious injury. Any parts showing evidence
of rust or other signs of serious wear should be replaced. Replacement parts
are available from LAW. To ensure lifelong accuracy, always clean the barrel
thoroughly after each shooting session to remove all traces of copper.
LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY
Legendary Arms Works (LAW) warrants to the purchaser all firearms manufactured by LAW against any and all manufacturer’s defects in material and
workmanship that affect reasonable operation for the lifetime of the firearm.
This warranty is transferrable from the original purchaser to subsequent owners for the lifetime of the firearm. Limited lifetime warranty does not apply
to any accessory items. Warranty is established by registering online at www.
legendaryarmsworks.com.
Warranty claims may be made by contacting Customer Service at info@lawarms.com for a Return Authorization number prior to delivering the unloaded firearm to Legendary Arms Works at 76 West Main Street, Reinholds, PA
17569. All shipping costs for warranty claims with a Return Authorization
number must be paid by the owner. Firearms and ammunition must be shipped
separately. No returns without a Return Authorization number will be accepted. LAW will repair or replace only those parts determined to be defective by
LAW. This warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear of any parts or
protective finishes.
The following are specifically excluded from coverage under this warranty
and will cause the warranty to become null and void:
• Damage or malfunction resulting from accident, negligence, misuse or unauthorized repair or alteration.
• Barrel obstruction, use of ammunition other than labeled for use with the
specific firearm, use of any hand-loaded, reloaded, and imported or factory
re-manufactured ammunition.

LAW is not responsible for any damages suffered, including but not limited
to incidental or consequential damages, medical expenses, temporary or permanent injuries suffered as a result of the use of its firearms, if such damages
were due to the negligence of the user and/or the result of any repair, adjustments or modifications to the product(s) that were not authorized, in writing,
by LAW. The foregoing warranty and disclaimer is exclusive and in lieu of
all other warranties of quality, whether written, oral or implied (including any
warranty of merchantability or fitness for the purpose). Some states do not
allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages and
therefore this limitation may not apply to you.
