Bolt-Action Firearms

Bolt Action: A bolt-action firearm operates like opening and closing a door bolt. The bolt solidly locks into the breech, making it accurate and dependable.

Bolt-action rifle
  • To open the action, lift the handle up and pull it to the rear.
  • If the firearm is loaded, the cartridge or shotshell will be ejected as you pull the bolt to the rear. To make sure it’s unloaded, visually check both the open action and the magazine for extra cartridges or shotshells.
  • You can store a bolt-action firearm safely by storing the bolt separately from the firearm.
