CAUTION: READ THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL COMPLETELY PRIOR TO LOADING AND FIRING YOUR HOLLOWAY ARMS CO. FIREARM. THIS MANUAL GIVES BASIC ADVICE ON THE SAFE AND PROPER HANDLING AND FUNCTIONING OF THIS FIREARM. WE WANT YOU TO ENJOY SHOOTING YOUR FIREARM, BUT WE WANT YOU TO ENJOY IT SAFELY. YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS (INCLUDING YOUR FAMILY) DEPENDS ON YOUR MATURE COMPLIANCE WITH THAT ADVICE AND YOUR ADOPTION, DEVELOPMENT, AND CONSTANT EMPLOYMENT OF THESE PRACTICES. IF UNFAMILIAR WITH FIREARMS YOU SHOULD SEEK FURTHER ADVICE THROUGH SAFE HANDLING COURSES RUN BY YOUR LOCAL GUN CLUBS, N.R.A. APPROUED INSTRUCTOR, POLICE DEPARTMENT OR SIMILAR QUALIFIED ORGANIZATIONS.
SECTION 1: PRECAUTIONS AND SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1. Always handle all firearms as if they were loaded so that you never fire it accidentally when you think that it is unloaded.
2. Never point a firearm at anything you do not intend to shoot so that if it fires accidentally, injury, death,. or damage to property will be prevented.
3. Never take anyone's word that a firearm is unloaded; check for yourself with your fingers off of the trigger and the weapon pointed in a safe direction so that you.never fire the firearm accidentally when you think that it is unloaded.
4. Always be sure that the barrel and action are clear of obstructions. Clean a fouled firearm immediately so that it will function safely and correctly.
5. Never squeeze the trigger or put your finger in the trigger guard until you are aiming at a target and ready to shoot. This will prevent you from firing the weapon when it is pointing in an unsafe direction.
6. Always keep the bolt forward and the chamber empty to eliminate the risk of accidental discharge until ready to use.
7. Be absolutely sure of your target and the area behind it before you squeeze the trigger. A bullet could travel through or past your target 1 1 /2 miles or moreI - IF IN DOUBT, DON'T SHOOT
8. Never shoot at a hard surface, such as a rock, or a liquid surface , such as water. A bullet may ricochet and travel in any direction to strike you, or all object you cannot see, causing, injury, death, or damage to property.
9. Always be sure that your backstop is adequate to stop a.nd contain bullets bofore starting target practice so that you do not hit anything outside the range shooting area.
10. Always put someone in charge to maintain safety control when a group is firing on a range. Obey his or her commands immediately so that discipline is miaintained to reduce the likelihood of accidents.
11. Always carry your firearm empty and with the action locked in the open position while on a range preparing to fire. Keep it pointing downrange towards the backstop when loading, firing, and unloading to eliminate the risk of injury, death, or damage to property.
12. Never leave a loaded firearm u nattended. Someone, especially a child, may fire it and cause injury, death, or damage to property.
13. Never use a firearm if it fails to function properly. Never force a jammed action, as a cartridge may explode, causing serious injury, possible death and serious damage to your firearm.
14. Always use only clean, dry, original, high quality commercially manufactured ammunition in good condition which is correct for the caliber of your weapon. Firearm and ammunition manufacturers design their products within exacting engineering safety limits, but handloads sometimes exceed those limits and could be unsafe.
15. Always wear protective shooting glasses for eye protection.
16. IMMEDIATE ACTION UPON FAILURE TO FIRE: Hold weapon, pointing safely downrange towards backstop and wait thirty (30) seconds-when weapon fails to fire. If a hangfire (slow ignition) has, occurred, the cartridge will cook-off (fire) within thirty (30) seconds. If the cartridge does not fire, while keeping the weapon pointed safely downrange, remove the magazine eject the round in the chamber, lock the bolt -in the rearward position, and examine the primer of the ejected cartridge. If. the firing pin indentation is shallow, off-center, or nonexistant, have the firearm examined competent gunsmith. If the firing pin indentation appears normal in comparison with similar previously fired cases, assume faulty ammunition; segregate misfired cartridges from other live ammunition and empty cases reload the weapon and continue to fire. Dispose of misfired rounds in accordance with the ammunition manufacturer's instructions.
17. Never fire your weapon near an animal unless it is trained to accept the sound; the startled reaction of the animal could injure it or cause an accident.
18. Never walk, climb, or follow a companion with your firearm ready to fire, or with the bolt in any position other than forward on an empty chamber, to eliminate the risk of accidental discharge. When hunting, hold your weapon so that you can always control the direction of the muzzle.
19. Never indulge in "horseplay" while holding your firearm, as it may be accidentally discharged.
20. Never drink alcoholic beverages or take drugs before, or during shooting, as your vision and judgement could be seriously impared, making your gun handling unsafe.
21. Always seek a doctor's advice if you are taking medication, to be sure you are fit to shoot and handle weapons safely.
22. Always wear ear protection when shooting, especially on the range. Without ear protection, the noise from your and of other firearms close to you, will leave a "ringing" in your ears for some time after firing, and will eventually lead to cumulative long term permanent hearing loss.
23. Always make sure that your firearm is not loaded beforecleaning, stripping, storing, or traveling. Make sure that the action is locked open before laying it down, or handing it to another person, so that it cannot be fired when it is unsafe to do so.
24. Always store your firearms and ammunition in separate locked receptacles, out of reach and out of sight of children, to minimize the risk of firearm and ammunition being easily available for unauthorized loading and firing.
25. Always instruct children to respect firearms. If you teach your children to shoot, teach them to use firearms properly, and always supervise them closely. Always stress safety so that your children will not fire weapons when it is unsafe to do so.
26. Always keep clear and keep others clear of the ejection port, as spent cartridge cases are ejected with enough force to cause injury. Never place fingers in the ejection port; they could be burned by hot metal or injured by the bolt moving forward into battery.
27. Be sure that the cam pin is installed in the bolt carrier group. If it is not, the rifle can still fire, possibly causing serious injury, possibly death, and severe damage to the rifle.
28. DO NOT exchange bolt. assemblies from one rifle to another. It could cause damage to the rifle, serious injury, and possible death.
29. DO NOT fire the rifle if there is water in the barrel. It could explode, causing serious injury, possible. death,. and damage to the rifle.30. If a noticeable difference in sound or recoil is experienced, STOP FIRING, IMMEDIATELY. Either condition could indicate an incomplete propellant burn and a bullet still in the bore of the rifle. Retract the bolt slowly and remove the fired case. Clear the rifle as specified in this instruction manual and check the bore for unburned powder in the bore or receiver. Remove all unburned propellant and set aside the rest of that lot of ammunition. If there is a projectile lodged in the bore, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE IT! Secure the weapon and take it to a qualified gunsmith to remove the stuck projectile. Failure to do so could result in damage to the rifle, serious injury, and possible death.
SECTION 2: FUNCTION
The Holloway Arms Co. Model 7 rifle is ready to fire when a loaded magazine is inserted into the magazine well, the bolt carrier assembly is retracted to cock the hammer, and released to travel forward to feed a cartridge from the top of the magazine into the chamber. Loading is completed as the bolt carrier cams the bolt through sixty degrees (60.)rotation locking the bolt head to the barrel and and barrel
extension. When the trigger is squeezed, the sear disengages from the hammer which pivots forward under the force of the hammer spring to strike the rear of the firing pin. The firing pin is positively locked to the rear until the bolt is fully locked. The firing pin is held to the rear by a spring and cannot protrude through the bolt face until the force of the hammer fall overcomes the spring pressure and the inertia of the firing pin. The firing pin is driven forward to strike the primer in the cartridge base. Upon detonation, the bullet is forced down the barrel by the high gas pressures generated by the burning powder, with the rifling lands and grooves imparting stabilizing spin to the bullet so t h at it will describe an accurate trajectory to the target.
As the base of the bullet passes the gas port tapped into the top of the barrel, a portion of the high pressure gas is vented out, and pushes rearward on the gas assembly as the gas expands. The amount of gas bled of f depends on the -as regulator setting. The rearward motion of the gas piston assembly forces the bolt carrier assembly back against the pressure of the recoil spring, camming the bolt through sixty degrees (60.) of rotation. At this time, the firing pin is positively locked to the rear. The final unlocking only occurs after the bullet has left the barrel and the gas pressure has been reduced to a. safe level. The rearward motion of the bolt carrier forces the hammer back into positive engagement with the sear, and as the bolt retracts, the extractor pulls the spent casing from the chamber, and the force of the spring-loaded ejector expels the case out of the ejection port. The movement of the bolt carrier will continue to the rear until the increasing pressure of the compressing recoil spring exceeds the decreasing inertia of the bolt carrier assembly. If the last round has been fired, the magazine follower will engage the bolt hold-open mechanism and lock the bolt to the rear. If ammunition still remains in the magazine, however, the bolt carrier assembly will move forward to again feed and lock the next cartridge into the chamber. On semi-automatic models, the trigger must be released and squeezed again to fire the weapon. On selective fire fire models with the selector switch set on "AUTO" , the rifle will continue to fire until either the trigger is released or the magazine is empty, whichever occurs first.
To Load A Magazine:
1. CAUTION: READ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (SECTION 1).
2. Use only ammunition suitable for the caliber of your rifle.
3. With open end uppermost, grasp the magazine in one hand, with the longest edge towards your palm. (See Figure 1).Place a cartridge on the magazine follower with the base just forward of the retaining lips. Press the cartridge down and to the back until the base of the cartridge touches the rear top of the previous cartridge and press down and back. Repeat until the magazine is loaded to the desired capacity.
CAUTION: TO MINIMIZE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL DISCHARGE, LOAD LIVE AMMUNITION ONLY WHEN YOU ARE ABOUT TO FIRE.To Load The Rifle:
1. CAUTION: READ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (SECTION 1) - KEEP RIFLE POINTING IN A SAFE DIRECTION AND DO NOT TOUCH THE TRIGGER.2. Remove empty magazine from rifle by placing your fingers around the front edges of the magazine, pushing forward with your thumb on the magazine release lever, and pulling straight down. (See Figure 2).
3. Hold rifle by the pistol grip with one hand, and grasp the charging handle with the other. Pull the charging handle to the rear far enough for the bolt to be completely free of the barrel extension, and visually inspect the chamber to insure that it is empty. If it is not, pull the charging handle fully to the rear to eject the case / cartridge. If the chamber is clear, allow the bolt carrier assembly to move completely forward into full battery under the pressure of the recoil spring. NOTE: Never "ride" the bolt into battery by easing forward on the charging handle. Always allow the bolt carrier assembly to move forward under the full pressure of the recoil spring. (If the bolt was fully to the rear, close the bolt on an empty chamber).
4. Insert loaded magazine into the magazine well with bullets pointing forward, towards the muzzle. Push magazine fully "home" upwards until the magazine catch is heard to "click" locking it in place. IMPORTANT: Do not strike the base of the magazine to drive it home - just push firmly into the rifle. Otherwise, you could damage the magazine and injure your hand. (See Figure 3)
NOTE: The safest way to carry your rifle is with an empty chamber and empty magazine. However, if you wish to carry the rifle with a loaded magazine locked in place. (i.e its present condition in the described loading sequence) keep the chamber empty with the bolt carrier assembly fully forward.
5. When you are ready to shoot, grasp the charging handle as described in Step 3 and pull it fully to the rear to cock the hammer. Release the charging handle to feed the top cartridge from the magazine into the chamber. THE RIFLE IS NOW LOADED AND READY TO FIRE.
6. Move the selector switch to the "SAFE" position until ready to fire to prevent the hammer from falling forward if the trigger is moved.CAUTION: NEVER LEAVE FIREARMS COCKED AND READY TO FIRE WITHOUT ENGAGING THE MANUAL SAFETY, AS THIS IS THE FIRING POSITION AND IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS; THE RIFLE COULD EASILY BE DISCHARGED ACCIDENTALLY CAUSING INJURY, DEATH, OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.
To Unload The Rifle:
CAUTION: READ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (SECTION 1) - KEEP RIFLE POINTING IN A SAFE DIRECTION AND DO NOT TOUCH THE TRIGGER. ALWAYS UNLOAD YOUR RIFLE IMMEDIATLEY AFTER USE AND PRIOR TO CLEANING AND STORAGE TO MINIMIZE THE RISK OF ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE.
2. Place hand under magazine to prevent its falling and press magazine release lever forward (towards the muzzle) to release and eject the magazine.
3. Using the charging handle, pull the bolt carrier group sharply to the rear to extract and eject a round from the chamber. (If the magazine was empty after firing, the bolt carrier group would already be locked to the rear by the bolt hold-open mechanism).
4. CAUTION: LOOK INTO THE CHAMBER TO ENSURE THAT IT IS EMPTY AND SEE THAT THE MAGAZINE HAS BEEN REMOVED.
5. Allow the bolt carrier assembly to return forward on an empty chamber either by releasing the charging handle or by depressing the bolt release lever. Squeeze the trigger to allow the hammer to fall forward on the empty chamber.
6. Remove the remaining live ammunition, if any, from the magazine by sliding the cartridges forward and out of the magazine.
7. Collect live ammunition for safe storage and spent cartridge cases for disposal.
Before firing your HAC rifle, practice your stance or position, aim, rhythm, and breathing for steady aim, with your rifle UNLOADED.
1. CAUTION: READ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (SECTION 1) - KEEP RIFLE POINTING IN A SAFE DIRECTION.
2. Load rifle as previously described.
3. Grasp pistol grip with one hand, and the forearm of the rifle with the other hand. Rest your index finger on the outside of the trigger guard, and be sure that the fingers of the hand on the forearm do not touch the barrel to avoid burns. Take aim at the target by aligning the sights using good steady hold procedures.
4. Release the safety by rotating the selector switch into the "FIRE" position.
5. Keeping steady aim, place the pad of the index finger on the trigger and squeeze gently until the hammer falls. Do not jerk the trigger as you will disturb your aim and spoil your accuracy. To fire the second and subsequent shots, all that is necessary is to release the trigger and squeeze it again after every shot until you have completed firing.
6. THIS IS THE SEMI-AUTOMATIC MODE OF THIS RIFLE. IN THIS MODE, IT IS IMMEDIATELY LOADED AND READY TO FIRE AGAIN AFTER EACH, SHOT UNTIL THE MAGAZINE IS EMPTY. SET ON "AUTO" ON N.F.A. WEAPONS, THE RIFLE WILL CONTINUE TO FIRE AS LONG AS THE TRIGGER IS DEPRESSED. IT WILL FIRE UNTIL EITHER THE TRIGGER IS RELEASED OR THE MAGAZINE RUNS OUT OF All AMMUNITION, WHICHEVER OCCURS FIRST.
7. Release trigger, remove finger from trigger and trigger guard, and turn the selector switch to "SAFE". CAUTION: IF THE RIFLE FAILS TO FIRE, HOLD IT, KEEPING IT POINTED TOWARDS THE TARGET AND WAIT THIRTY (30) SECONDS. IF A HANGFIREE (slow ignition) HAS OCCURED, THE CARTRIDGE WILL FIRE WITHIN THIRTY (30) SECONDS (cookoff). IF THE CARTRIDGE DOES NOT FIRE DURING THIS TIME, REMOVE THE MAGAZINE, EJECT THE CARTRIDGE, AND EXAMINE THE PRIMER. IF FIRING PIN INDENT ON PRIMER IS LIGHT, OFF-CENTER, OR NON-EXISTANT, HAVE THE RIFLE EXAMINED BY A COMPETENT GUNSMITH. IF FIRING PIN INDENT APPEARS NORMAL (IN COMPARISON WITH OTHER SIMILAR PREVIOUSLY FIRED CASES) ASSUME FAULTY AMMUNITION; SEGREGATE MISFIRED CARTRIDGE FROM OTHER LIVE AMMUNITION AND EMPTY CASES; RELOAD AND CONTINUE TO FIRE. NOTE: Dispose of misfired rounds in accordance with the ammunition manufacturers instructions.
8. CAUTION: KEEP RIFLE POINTING IN A SAFE DIRECTION. UNLOAD AS PREVIOUSLY DESCRIBED.
IMPORTANT: If you load the rifle but do not fire it, move the selector switch to the "SAFE" position until ready to fire. If you lose the opportunity to fire, unload your rifle as previously described until you are again ready to fire. CAUTION: NEVER LEAVE RIFLE COCKED AND READY TO FIRE AS THE FIRE CONDITION IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, AND THE RIFLE COULD EASILY BE ACCIDENTALLY DISCHARGED CAUSING INJURY, DEATH, OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.
1. Failure to Feed: The top cartridge in the magazine is not positioned up and in front of the bolt. Most malfunctions of this nature are failures to feed caused by a defective or dirty magazine.2. Failure to Chamber: The top cartridge from the magazine is not seated in the chamber.
3. Failure to Fire: The cartridge is chambered but does not fire.
4. Failure to Extract: The fired case is not completely removed from the chamber.
5. Failure to Eject: The fired case is not ejected from the weapon.
6. Failure to Cock: if the bolt carrier group does not move to the rear far enough to clear the top cartridge of the magazine, or if the hammer is not held to the rear by the sear, the rifle will fail to cock.

IMMEDIATE ACTION FOR MALFUNCTIONS:
1. WARNING: If an audible "POP" or reduced, recoil is experienced during shooting, CEASE FIRING IMMEDIATELY! Place the selector switch on "SAFE", remove the magazine, and lock the bolt to the rear. Visually inspect the bore and/or insert a cleaning rod into the bore to insure that there is not a projectile lodged in the bore. If there is a projectile lodged in the bore, DO NOT ATTEMPT to remove it. Secure the weapon and take it to a qualified gunsmith to remove it or further damage may be done to your weapon.2. If your rifle stops firing before you do, remember the acronym SPORTS.
a. SLAP upwards on the bottom of the magazine to make sure that the magazine is fully and properly seated in the magazine well.
b. PULL the charging handle all the way to the rear.
e. THUMB the bolt carrier forward to insure that the bolt is fully seated and locked. CAUTION: Bolt carrier may be hot from firing the rifle.
f. SIGHT the weapon safely downrange and attempt to fire.
3. If the rifle still will not fire, cease fire, clear the rifle, and reread the section on malfunctions.
4. If you are still unable to net the rifle to fire, see Section 3, "'Maintenance: Service and Repair."
5. If there is a case lodged in the chamber, clear the rifle and tap the case out by inserting a cleaning rod down the barrel from the muzzle.6. Any time the rifle has been disassembled, always perform. a function check upon reassembly. First clear the rifle and check the chamber.
b. Release the trigger. Move the selector switch to "FIRE" . Squeeze the trigger and hold it to the rear. The hammer should fall. With the trigger held to the rear, pull the charging handle fully to the rear and release it. Release the trigger and squeeze it again. The hammer should fall.
c. On selective fire
models, place the selector switch on "AUTO". Pull the charging handle fully
to the rear and release it. Squeeze the trigger and hold it to the rear.
The hammer should fall. With the trigger held to the rear, pull the charging
handle fully to the rear and release it. Release the trigger and squeeze
it again. The hammer should not fall.
d. Should the rifle
not perform as indicated, disassemble the rifle again, identify the problem
and reassemble the rifle correctly, and repeat the function check.
e. Should the rifle still not perform as indicated, see Section 3, "Maintenance: Service and Repair."
CAUTION: READ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (Section 1) Hinged Trigger Guard:
1. The hinged trigger guard is for use when firing the rifle while wearing gloves or mittens.2. To open the hinged trigger guard, locate the spring-loaded detent pins at the front of the trigger guard. (See Figure 4).
3. As illustrated, depress each of the detent pins with a bullet tip and the trigger guard will hinge down and back along the front edge of the pistol grip. The magazine release lever must be pushed forward for the trigger guard to clear during the initial phase of opening. In operation, the trigger guard will be held in place by the firing hand.
1. The front sight is adjustable for elevation. To adjust for elevation, depress the spring-loaded detent pin with a bullet tip and, using the bullet tip as a lever, rotate the front sight post. (See Figure 5).2. To raise the strike of the bullet, rotate the post clockwise. To lower the strike of the bullet, rotate the post counterclockwise. Each detent notch will change the point of impact one inch (I") at one hundred ( 100) yards.
Rear Sight Adjustment:
1. The rear sight is adjustable for windage. To adjust the rear sight, locate and turn the adjustment knob located on the side of the sight. (See Figure 6).
2. To move the strike of the bullet to the right, rotate the rear sight adjustment knob clockwise (towards the muzzle). To move the strike of the bullet to the left, rotate the rear sight adjustment knob counter-clockwise (towards the butt). Each internal detent click of the rear sight windage knob will change the impact one inch (I") at one hundred (100) yards.
3. The two positions of the rear peep sight do not change the sighting distance of the rifle or the impact of the bullet. The smaller aperture (2.5mm) is designed for daytime firing, while the larger aperture (4mm) is designed for night time or any other reduced visibility firing situation.
Gas Cut-Off and Gas Regulator:
1. The gas cut-off is provided to enable the shooter to prevent or allow gas to be bled from the barrel into the gas tube-gas piston assembly, at the shooter's discretion. The base into the slot of the -as cut-off and rotating the gas cutoff ninety degrees (90.) or one-quarter (1/4) turn. If the slot is parallel to the bore of the rifle, the gas flow is interrupted. In this position, the rifle will not function as a semi-automatic or automatic rifle, depending on the model. The shooter must manually cycle the charging handle after each shot to eject the fired case, cock the hammer, and chamber a new round. With the gas cut-off slot perpendicular to the line of the bore of the rifle, the gas channel is open and the rifle will function semi-automatically and automatically, depending on the model. (See Figure 7).
Reversing The Selector Switch:
2. The gas regulator is provided to allow the shooter to control the amount of gas being bled from the barrel into the gas tubegas piston assembly. This is done to compensate for varying gas pressures. between different loadings of ammunition appropriate to the caliber of the rifle . It is NOT intended as an alternative to the proper cleaning, care, and maintenance of the rifle.
3. The gas regulator ring is marked with the numerals 1,2,3,4. Number 1 is the smallest gas opening, Number 2 the next smallest, Number 3 the next to largest, and Number 4 the largest gas opening. Looking down at the gas regulator from the top of the rifle, the number visible at the top of the gas regulator ring is the current gas setting.
4. To change the adjustment of the gas regulator, pull the springloaded gas regulator ring towards the muzzle of the rifle to disengage the positive detent. The gas regulator ring may now be rotated to any desired setting. Upon releasing the gas regulator ring, it will return to its positive detent position under spring pressure. (See Figure 7) .
NOTE: IF THE GAS REGULATOR RING IS NOT SET EXACTLY ON ONE 01' THE FOUR SETTINGS, THE GAS PASSAGE WILL BE BLOCKED AND THE RIFLE WILL NOT FUNCTION AS A SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLE. BE SURE BEFORE FIRING THAT THE GAS REGULATOR RING HAS RETURNED TO THE POSITIVE' DETENT POSITION.
5. To set the gas regulator for a particular load, set the gas regulator ring on setting number 1. Fire the rifle to see if this opening will allow sufficient gas to bleed out to function the action. If not, clear the rifle and adjust the setting to number 2, and fire the weapon again. Repeat this procedure until the smallest possible opening that will reliably function the rifle is set on the gas regulator ring. Holloway Arms, Company advises against the use of setting number 4 unless it isabsolutely essential to t he functioning of the rifle. Needless use of setting number 4 or of any setting larger than is required to function the rifle can lead to excessive wear on the mechanism of the rifle and possible failure of overstressed parts.
1. The selector switch is reversible to be accessible to lefthanded shooters on right-handed rifles, and vice versa.
2. After clearing and disassembling the rifle, move the selector switch to a point between the "SAFE" and "FIRE" detent positions. (See Figure 8)
3. From the opposite side of the rifle, push the base of the selector lever rod until the lever can be pulled free of the lower receiver. (See Figure 9)
4. At this point, the selector lever detent pin will be forced by the pressure of the selector lever detent spring from its hole. Remove both the selector lever detent pin and the selector lever detent spring from the lower receiver and insert them in the corresponding hole in the opposite side of the receiver. (See Figure 9)
5. Depress the selector lever detent, compressing the selector lever detent spring, until the selector lever rod can be inserted from the desired side of the lower receiver and through the receiver. NOTE: BE SURE DURING REASSEMBLY THAT THE INDICATOR ON' THE SELECTOR SWITCH IS POINTED BETWEEEN "SAFE" AND "FIRE". IF IT IS NOT, YOU WILL HAVE TO REPEAT THE ENTIRE DISASSEMBLY PROCEDURE, BECAUSE THE RIFLE WILL NOT FIRE IN ANY OTHER CONFIGURATION. (See Figure 10)
6. Perform a function check to insure proper reassembly.
Adjustment Of The Muzzle
1. The muzzle brake/flash suppressor is adjustable to compensate for either left or right hand muzzle flip, to insure straight-line recoil and faster recovery between shots.
2. After ascertaining the direction of muzzle flip by firing, clear the rifle and allow the muzzle brake/flash suppressor to cool. Using the proper size wrench, loosen the muzzle brake/flash suppressor nut. Rotate the muzzle brake/flash suppressor to the desired angle and retighten the muzzle brake/flash suppressor nut. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. Repeat as necessary until the desired results are achieved.(See Figure 11).
Adjustment of the Folding Stock:
1. The folding, stock is provided so that the shooter , at his discretion, may extend or fold the stock for ease of firinlo, carrying, transporting, or storing,
2. To fold the stock, place your fingers along the bottom of the lower receiver and place the web of your hand on top of the too of the stock tube. Press down with the web of your hand and pull upward with your fingers to disengage the locking assembly and to lower the cam to the position where it will clear the notch in the lower receiver. When the stock has been lowered to this position on the stock hinge pin, swing the stock towards the side of the rifle that has the ejection port. Lay the stock along the receiver as closely as possible . The cam will retain the stock in this position until physically released. (See Figure 12)
Adjustment of 7M/7ML/7S/7SL Triggers :
3. To extend the stock, simply pull the stock away from the side of the receiver and back into the locked position.
CAUTION: Do not exert excessive pressure on the stock assembly during any of these procedures. Do not allow the stock to either slam against the receiver or back into the fully extended configuration. The HAC-7 rifle is constructed to withstand rough usage, but needless abuse will cause any tool to malfunction and eventually fail.
----------- SEE ENCLOSURE WITH FIREARM ----------------------
SECTION 3: MAINTENANCE
The Holloway Arms Company rifles are designed to withstand rough usage in field conditions, but they will last longer, perform better, and remain safer if given proper care and maintenance. Keep your rifle clean and properly lubricated to prolong its reliable life. It is essential for the reliable operation and performance that the weapon receive careful regular and periodic maintenance. It should be cleaned at tile end of each day's firing. The rifle need only be field stripped for this maintenance. The rifle is designed so that no special tools are required to either strip or reassemble the weapon. NOTE: Force is unneccessary and should never be used either to strip or reassemble your rifle. To do so may result in damage to the rifle.
1. ENSURE THAT THE MAGAZINE IS REMOVED AND THE RIFLE IS NOT LOADED BEFORE STRIPPING AND CLEANING, SO THAT IT WILL NOT ACCIDENTALLY FIRE.
2. WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WHEN FIELD STRIPPING THE RIFLE IN CASE A SPRING-LOADED COMPONENT WORKS LOOSE, WITHOUT YOUR CONTROL, TO PREVENT EYE INJURY.
3. BE SURE THAT YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS IN SECTION 1.
4. BE sure that the bolt carrier assembly is fully forward.
5. Push the small end of the rear receiver pin in until the head of the pin is clear of the side of the receiver, and can be pulled all of the way to the end of its travel. NOTE: Both this pin and the forward receiver hinge pin are secured to the receiver by detents, and cannot be lost under normal use. (See Figure 13).
6. At this time, the rear of the upper receiver is free to move up and away from the lower receiver. As it does so, the captive recoil spring and guide will protrude under spring pressure from the back of the upper receiver. Grasp the protruding portion and pull to the rear to remove the gas piston assembly and bolt carrier group from the upper receiver.(See Figure 14).
7. The upper receiver may now be removed completely from the lower receiver by pulling the forward receiver hinge pin all of the way to the end of its travel. The pin is held in place by a detent and cannot be lost under normal use.
8. Grasping, the gas piston assembly in one hand, with the other hand pull the recoil spring guide and captive recoil spring out of the recoil spring channel in the oas piston assembly.(See Figure 157).
9. Lift the firing pin retaining pin away from the bolt carrier, and remove the firing pin from the rear of the bolt carrier group. The firing pin retaining pin is held to the bolt carrier by a detent, and cannot be lost under normal maintenance procedures. NOTE: The firing pin retaining pin can be lifted either by the lifting groove, which will accomodate the rim of the proper cartridge of the rifle's caliber, or by inserting the tip of a bullet into the rear of the bolt carrier group and pressing the pin upwards. (See Figure 16).
10. Push the bolt all of the way to the rear. This will rotate the cam pin out from under the gas piston assembly. Remove the cam pin by lifting it out of the cam pin slot. (See Figure 17).
11. With the cam pin removed, the bolt may now be removed from the bolt carrier group by simply pulling the bolt forward. The bolt follower will move forward with the bolt and slip off of the bolt as it clears the leading edge of the bolt carrier. Place your hand under the bolt follower while removing the bolt to be sure that It does not fall. (See Figure 18) .
At this point, no further disassembly of the bolt, bolt carrier, or gas piston assembly is required or recoomended .
12. To remove the handguards, place the rim, of a standard cartridge of the appropriate caliber for your rifle in the slot of the screw in the right forearm of the rifle. Unscrew the screw and remove it completely from the forearm assembly. At this time, the forearms will be able to be lifted away from the front sight assembly, and then forward and away from the rifle to remove. (See Figure 20).
13. To remove the gas tube assembly, insert the base of a standard cartridge for the appropriate caliber for your rifle in the slot at either side of the gas tube nut. Using the cartridge as a lever, unscrew the gas tube nut from the gas cylinder housing. DO NOT FORCE the gas tube nut, as this may bend the gas tube. If the gas tube nut will not turn, apply a penetrating lubricant to free the threads.(See Figure 21).
14. Once the gas tube nut threads are free of the gas cylinder housing, slide the gas tube nut and cartridge up the -as tube until the square cuts on the gas tube nut engage the square lugs on the upper end of the gas tube. With the lugs firmly engaged and completely seated in the cuts, again use the cartridge as a lever to unscrew the gas tube from the front sight assembly.(See Figure 22).
IMPORTANT: This will conclude the field stripping of the rifle, allowing access to all internal components. Do not strip the rifle any further than previously described. If additional maintenance is required, see "Service and Repair" foll'owing in this section.
15. Reassemble in reverse order.
16. When reassembling the gas tube assembly, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN, as this could damage the rifle.
17. DO NOT FORCE ANY PART. IF ANY PART, COMPONENT, OR ASSEMBLY DOES NOT FIT EASILY, DISASSEMBLE THE PART, COMPONENT, OR ASSEMBLY AND REASSEMBLE PROPERLY.
18. When reinstalling the bolt into the bolt carrier, be sure that the bolt follower is correctly installed in the groove in the bolt and in the slot in the bolt carrier.(See Figure 23).
19. When reinstalling the bolt into the bolt carrier, be sure that the extractor is on the same side of the bolt carrier as the ejection port of the rifle. (See Figure 23).
20. When reinstalling the cam pin, be sure that the beveled side of the cam pin top is towards the top of the bolt carrier. (See Figure 24).
21. Before installing the firing pin, fully extend tjhe bolt. Be sure that the firing pin retaining pin is behind the large shoulder of the firing pin. (See Figure 25).
22. Keep the bolt fully extended while inserting the bolt carrier group/gas piston assembly back into the upper receiver. Insure that the hammer is cocked and that the selector switch is in the "SAFE" position during reassembly. (See Figure 26).
23. Push the end of the recoil spring guide and captive recoil spring into the upper receiver to clear the lower receiver during the downward pivot to engage the rear receiver pin. (See Figure 27)
24.After reassembly perform a function check.
25. Disassembly and reassembly of the magazine:
a. With a bullet tip, raise the rear of the magazine base plate so that the two detents will clear the back edge of the magazine body. (See Figure 28)
b. Withdraw the magazine base plate to the rear of the magazine. Magazine spring, follower, and magazine plug (if any) will remove from the bottom of the magazine.
c. At this time, magazine plugs may be added or removed for hunting, competition, etc.
d. Reassemble in reverse order. Be sure to fully compress the spring before replacing the magazine base plate.
1. CAUTION: BE SURE THAT YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS IN SECTION 1.
2. The HAC-7 rifle can withstand rough usage in field conditions, but it will last longer, perform better, and remain safer in operation if it is given proper care and maintenance. Keep your rifle clean and properly lubricated to prolong its reliable life.
3. Whenever the rifle is disassembled, visually inspect:
a. Firing pin check for cracks, bent, blunted, or broken tip.
b. Extractor check for cracks, spring tension.
c. Bolt face check for pitting, make sure that the firing pin hole is round.
4. The rifle should be cleaned as soon as possible after firing so that the task will be easier and to reduce the opportunity for corrosion. When the rifle has not been fired, clean it periodically, once or twice a year in temperate environments, or as often as once a month in tropical or humid climates.
5. Cleaning equipment needed:
a. Cleaning rod of the proper caliber.
b. Cotton flannel cleaning patches of the proper caliber.
c. Brass bore brush of the proper caliber.
d. 7.62mm NATO / .308 Win. brass chamber brush.
e. Small toothbrush.
f. Bore solvent.
g. Good quality light gun oil. h. Pipe cleaners.
6. CAUTION: ENSURE THAT THE RIFLE IS NOT LOADED.
7. Field strip rifle for cleaning as previously described.
8. Wipe all disassembled parts to remove all traces of oil, lubricant, and dirt. Use a swab soaked with solvent.
9. Attach a solvent-soaked patch to the end of the cleaning rod and push through the barrel from the BREECH to the MUZZLE. NOTE: Avoid contact between the cleaning rod and the crowning of the muzzle of the rifle barrel as the resultant wear will reduce accuracy. Repeat procedures until clean patches emerge. NOTE: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REVERSE THE DIRECTION OF THE PATCH WHILE IT IS INSIDE OF THE BORE. DO NOT FLEX OR BEND THE ROD.
10. Attach a brass wire brush of the proper caliber for your rifle to the end of the cleaning rod. Dip the brush into the bore solvent and brush the bore thoroughly. DO NOT submerge the barrel in the cleaning solution. Brush the bore from CHAMBER to HUZZLE, using straight through strokes. NOTE: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REVERSE THE DIRECTION OF THE BRUSH 14HILE IT IS INSIDE OF THE BORE. DO NOT FLEX OR BEND THE ROD.
Push the brush through until it extends clear of the muzzle. Continue until the bore is well coated with solvent.
11. Remove the brush from the cleaning rod and repeat Steps 9 and 10 until the bore is completely clean.
12. Dip the chamber brush into the solvent and insert it into the chamber. Thoroughly brush the chamber, wiping periodically with patches, until it is completely clean.
13. Dry the barrel and chamber by swabbing with a dry patch. Remove any residual solvent from the Oas passages in the front sight assembly with a pipe cleaner.
14. Inspect all gas system parts for carbon deposits. If any are present, use the wire brush dipped in solvent to remove them. Thoroughly clean the gas piston and gas cylinder. Run a solventsoaked pipe cleaner through the gas tube, and thoroughly dry the tube, inside and out, when clean. NOTE: Insure that no oil or solvent remains on any gas system part, as it only increase the buildup of carbon deposits and fouling.
15. Clean the firing pin, cam pin, bolt follower, bolt, and bolt carrier assembly with a small toothbrush dipped in solvent. Thoroughly dry all parts after they are clean.
16. Clean the recoil spring guide and captive recoil spring using a small toothbrush dipped in solvent. Thoroughly dry after all parts are clean.
17. Be sure to clean inside the bolt carrier also, the firing pin channel and firing pin hole in the bolt is best cleaned by a solvent-soaked pipe cleaner. Be sure to dry thoroughly after cleaning.
18. With the small toothbrush, patches, and pipe cleaners, thoroughly clean the lower receiver. Be sure to get into all of the holes and crevasses, and behind parts using the pipe cleaners. Remove the dirt, oil, and solvent, paying particular attention to the trigger, hammer, and selector assemblies.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE WIRE BRUSH OR ANY TYPE OF ABRASIVE MATERIAL TO CLEAN THE SURFACES OF EITHER THE UPPER RECEIVER OR THE LOWER RECEIVER.
NOTE: The HAC-7 rifle is designed to function in all possible conditions, and to function with an acceptable amount of dirt and fouling. Excessive fouling, will cause any weapon to malfunction. Proper maintenance and lubrication by the shooter will prevent such an occurrence. The HAC-7 can function without lubrication, but this is undesireable due to the resultant excessive wear on the rifle. In the following lubrication instructions, please keep in mind the conditions in which you will be using the rifle. In conditions of extreme dust, the grit will adhere to the oil and become an abrasive. In these conditions, we recommend either the lightest possible application of lubricant or the use of one of the high quality dry lubricants available on the market. In conditions of sub-zero temperatures, we recommend the use of either one of the high quality dry lubricants available on the market or a lubricant specifically formulated to function in these adverse conditions.
a. Lightly lubricate
the bore by passing a patch dipped in lubricant through the bore.
b. Lightly lubricate
the front sight. Depress the front sight detent several times to work the
lubricant into the spring.
c. Lightly lubricate
the external surfaces of the barrel covered by the forearm.
d. Lightly lubricate
the firing pin and the firing pin channel in the bolt.
the outside of the bolt, the bolt carrier, the cam pin, the front and rear
receiver pins, and all of the internalparts
of the lower receiver.
f. Lightly lubricate
all external metal surfaces to remove any fingerprints. NOTE: Fingerprint
moisture could corrode the metal if left on the rifle.
20. After checking that no brush bristles or portions of patches are left lodged in the weapon , reassemble the rifle as previously described.
21. Perform a function check, as previously described.
22. Be sure that all plastic parts (pistol grip,forearm, etc.) are dry and free of oil and solvent.
CAUTION: ALWAYS UNLOAD YOUR RIFLE FOR STORAGE AND STORE AMMUNITION SEPARATELY.
Store your rifle and ammunition securely locked and in separate locations out of the reach and sight of children. (Children are naturally curious and do not always believe in the real danger of mishandled firearms). Do not store your rifle in an air-tight container, and do not seal or attempt to seal the barrel to exclude dust. The internal steel surface is more likely to corrode in these conditions. Use the provided muzzle cap to keep dust out. Do not store your rifle in a gun case, as the lining is likely to contain sufficient moisture to damage your rifle after prolonged storage. The rifle should have a light coat of preservative oil on all metal parts, including the gas system parts. All of this oil must be removed prior to firing and the proper lubricant applied.The best storage is in an upright position in a cabinet, behind closed doors, but with free air circulation to retard moisture accumulation. If your rifle has telescopic sights mounted, be sure that the lens caps are in place. For additional protection against moisture, packages of dessicant may be placed in the cabinet , BUT DO NOT PLACE THEN IN CONTACT WITH YOUR FIREARMSS. Follow manufacturer's directions for renewing the dessicant.
