Assembly Firing Pin and Trigger Assembly

Post by knightrifles » October 1st, 2018, 2:28 pm

Replace the firing pin in the firing pin retaining hole located in the hammer slot of the receiver. Ensure that the firing pin is rotated to enter the desired firing pin hole either centerfire or rimfire. The firing pin should be aligned with the top hole for rimfire and with the bottom hole for centerfire. Turn the receiver upside down and locate the firing pin retainer set screw. Using the flat screwdriver end of the extractor, turn the firing pin retainer set screw approximately two turns counterclockwise until hand tight. Do not over tighten or use excessive force, as this will potentially affect the movement of the firing pin and may cause the rifle to fail to perform.

Turning the receiver and buttstock slightly on its side with one hand, insert the trigger group into the trigger group slot located in the receiver. Pushing the trigger group release lever forward), rock the
trigger group slightly until it locks into position. The trigger group should fit flush and should not be able to be pulled free.
