NOTE:

Before stripping the weapon, carry out NSPs as detailed above, but do not operate the trigger or close the dust cover. The safety catch must remain at 'S' and the hammer cocked.

The TRILUX lamp used in the SUSAT contains TRITIUM gas. In the event of a breakage, the following precautions are to be taken:

◉ The escaping gas is not to be inhaled.

◉ Cigarettes are to be extinguished immediately.

◉ Broken parts are not to be handled with bare hands.

◉ If a breakage occurs indoors, doors and windows are to be opened to allow the gas to clear, and any gas or flame heating system is to be turned off.

◉ All breakages are to be reported to the Medical Officer and to the unit armourer as soon as possible.

THE RIFLE IS NEVER TO BE POINTED AT ANYONE IN JEST

DRILLS

LOADING

◉ Check that the safety catch is at 'S'.

◉ Check the top round is seated correctly in the magazine.

◉ Fit the magazine to the rifle, making sure that it is secure.

UNLOADING

◉ Bring the weapon into the horizontal position, keeping the right forefinger outside the trigger guard.

◉ Put the safety catch to 'S' and open your ammunition pouch.

◉ Tilt the weapon to the right, remove the magazine and place it in your ammunition pouch.

◉ IT IS ESSENTIAL FOR SAFETY REASONS THAT THE MAGAZINE IS REMOVED AT THIS POINT.

◉ Tilt the weapon slightly to the right, cock the weapon and engage the holding open catch.

◉ Twist the weapon to the left so the ejection opening is uppermost.

◉ Inspect the body, chamber and face of the bolt carefully to ensure they are clear. Look at the magazine housing to ensure that the magazine has been removed. Once more check the condition of the body, chamber and face of the bolt as an added precaution to prevent a negligent discharge. (Remembered as the 7-point check).

◉ At night feel with the little finger or a pull-through.

◉ Operate the bolt release catch and allow the working parts to go forwards, tap forward on the cocking handle.

◉ Place the safety catch to 'F' and operate the trigger. Return the safety catch to 'S' and ensure the sights are reset to 300m.

◉ Close the dust cover, pick up any ejected round, clean it and replace it in the magazine.

NOTES:

◉ To prevent possible injury to the face or eye from ejected rounds, the weapon is NOT to be tilted to the left, when cocking during an unload.

◉ When unloading in darkness or thick vegetation, care should be taken to direct ejected rounds close to the position so that the ammunition can be readily recovered.

MAKING READY

◉ Check that the safety catch is at 'S'.

◉ Check that the change lever is at 'R'.

◉ Set the sights.

◉ Cock the rifle.

◉ Tap forward on the cocking handle.

MAKING SAFE

◉ If required, or on the command 'Make Safe', unload as taught, then put on a full magazine.

IMMEDIATE ACTION (IA) ON STOPPAGES

◉ Take cover.

◉ If the cocking handle appears to be fully forward, tap forward on the cocking handle with the left hand and continue firing.

◉ If the cocking handle is in a position other than fully forward, or fully to the rear, or if the weapon fails to fire after carrying out the drill for cocking handle fully forward, tilt the weapon slightly to the right and cock the weapon, apply the holding open catch and look into the body and the chamber.
