12) Lift the extractor up


slightly at the face of the
cylinder so it clears the face.
Use a screw driver to push
the extractor off of the
cylinder. It is not
recommended that you
remove the extractor from
any bolt too often as it will
weaken the spring properties
of the extractor and cause
the extractor to not function
optimally.

13) Rotate the cocking piece


clockwise to the slot located
at the nine o'clock position.
Allow the cocking piece to
enter the slot.

14) Figure 14 shows the


cocking piece in the correct
position/slot.

15) Place the handle of the


cocking piece against a
surface such as shown in
figure 15. The small holes in
a reloading tray work perfect
for keeping the round part of
the cocking piece handle in
place while you compress
the spring.
