    MECHANICAL SAFETY

    The safety button and barrel selector switch is located on the top rear portion ofthe receiver (Fig. 1) and must be manually moved to the desired position by theshooter. The safety buttons position affects both barrels. The barrel selectorswitch requires the user to move the safety button to the ON (SAFE) positionbefore selecting which barrel should be fired first.

    To engage the safety button to the ON (SAFE) position, the safety buttonmust be moved fully rearward. The safety button will now expose an S locatedjust in front of the safety button. The S is a training aid used only to show thedirection of the ON (SAFE) position and should not be used as an indicator thatthe safety is on or off. Moving the safety button forward toward the muzzle ofthe shotgun will place the safety button in the OFF (FIRE) position.
