Before using your new firearm, familiarize yourself with this manual and the operation of your firearm to ensure that you get the best performance and reliability from your new In Guns We Trust LLC firearm. Read through all of the procedures listed in this manual before attempting to perform any of the described actions. If any part of this manual is unclear to you, contact In Guns We Trust LLC before attempting the procedure. Note: All complete firearms and uppers are head spaced and test fired before shipping.
Caution: Clean your firearm before using for the first time.
 Unloading and Clearing Your Rifle
Note: Your rifle is now "Unloaded and Clear". It may now be loaded or prepped for transportation or storage.
 Loading and Firing Your Rifle
Begin with a rifle that has been verified to be unloaded using the preceding directions.
The following is a description of the sequence for one complete firing cycle; beginning after a cartridge is chambered. Knowing the correct function of your rifle will help you with the diagnosis of any malfunctions or failures to fire.
The trigger is pulled releasing the hammer which strikes the firing pin. The firing pin impacts the primer in the chambered cartridge igniting the primer which ignites the powder. As the powder is burned it creates a high volume of gas, which propels the bullet down the bore of the barrel. The exhaust gas is also vented out of the bore through the barrel's gas port, into the gas block and through the gas tube and into the carrier key on the bolt carrier. The gas pushes the bolt carrier back and moving the cam pin that will rotate the bolt unlocking your bolt from the barrel extension allowing the bolt carrier to recoil completely. The underside of the carrier will push the hammer down where it is caught and held by the disconnector. The bolt will pull the spent cartridge out of the chamber and eject it from the rifle.
At full recoil the carrier has pushed the buffer and buffer spring back into the receiver and the buffer tube. The magazine will present a new cartridge, which will be stripped from the magazine by the bolt as the recoil spring pushes the bolt carrier group back into battery. The new cartridge is now chambered. The fire control group will reset once you have released the trigger allowing the disconnector to release the hammer and re-engage into forward engagement. The rifle is ready to be fired again or put on “SAFE” and unloaded.
6. Align your sights on your target.
7. Place the selector on “FIRE”. Your rifle is now ready to shoot.
8. Squeeze the trigger until the hammer is released.
 Disassembly Instructions
Warning: Unload and Clear your rifle as described in the unloading and clearing directions above before disassembling your rifle.
3. Pull the rear take down pin the rest of the way to the right side of the lower receiver until it engages the detent that holds the pin in the open position.
4. Pivot the lower receiver away from the upper receiver.
5. Pull the front pivot pin the rest of the way to the right side of lower receiver until it engages the detent that holds the pin in the open position.
6. The upper and lower receivers are now separated; set the upper receiver aside.
7. Remove the buffer and buffer spring from the lower receiver by depressing the buffer detent. Maintain tension on the buffer face while removing; it is under pressure from the recoil spring. You may need to hold the hammer down to allow the buffer and spring to be removed from the buffer tube.
8. Set the lower receiver, buffer and recoil spring aside and pick the upper receiver back up.
9. Pull the charging handle to rear and remove bolt and carrier assembly. Set the bolt and carrier assembly aside.
10. Remove the charging handle by pulling it backwards until it is aligned with the key way. The charging handle may now be lifted from the upper receiver.
11. Set the upper receiver and the charging handle aside and pick the bolt carrier assembly back up.
12. Remove the firing pin retaining pin from the left side of the carrier. You may use a small pick or punch to hook the loop the retaining pin makes at the end of the firing pin retaining pin.
13. Tilt bolt face up and remove firing pin from the rear of the bolt carrier.
14. Push bolt into the carrier until it rotates and comes to a stop (in battery position) .
15. Turn cam pin 90° and lift it out from bolt and carrier.
16. Pull bolt forward out of carrier. Set the carrier aside.
17. With a punch, remove the extractor pin from the bolt assembly. Slight pressure applied to the back of the extractor (opposite side of the bolt face) will ease removal of the extractor pin.
18. Remove the extractor. The extractor spring and o-ring insert should be captured in the extractor; do not remove the spring and o-ring from the extractor.
Your rifle is now field stripped for cleaning.
Caution: Do not disassemble your firearm any further than described. Any maintenance that requires further disassembly should be performed by In Guns We Trust LLC.
 Basic Care and Maintenance
Proper maintenance will ensure you get the best performance from your firearm. High quality cleaning products will ensure that you get your rifle clean quickly and without damage to your firearm. The Mil-Spec cleaning kit is great for field use, but a good set of cleaning tools and a caliber specific Bore snake and chamber brush will make your task easier at home. There are also many excellent cleaning products available to shooters today. We do not recommend any specific brand, so use what you like. Just make sure that it is safe to use on the parts you are cleaning and follow the cleaning products manufacturers instructions.

Other ammunition related problems can occur. If you believe that ammunition you are using is performing in an inconsistent manner, do not take any chances that you are experiencing a one-off occurrence. Discontinue the use of the suspect ammunition and contact the manufacturer.
Your rifle is a sizable investment. Make every effort to use quality ammunition, to ensure your safety and and prolong the life of your firearm for years of enjoyment.
