NOTE

Should a jam occur after firing, care must be taken 

to see that the striker is flush with the rear end of the

striker guide block before force is used upon the breech

to open the same. In cases where the striker is not

flush with the guide block, withdraw the keep pin and

hinge bolt of the breech mechanism lever and remove the

lever, guide block, firing lever, and striker from the gun

Replace the breech mechanism lever and hinge bolt

and swing the breech screw and carrier into the loading

position then replace the striker, firing lever, and guide block


Extractor

The extractor is of steel, and is hinged to the

right side of the gun. On the inner end are two arms

which clip the rim of the cartridge, the outer end forming

a lug by means of which the extractor is automatically

actuated in opening the breech


N.B

When removing the striker from or inserting it

into the guide block the safety catch in the latter

must always be in the firing position
