the brand you find works well in your revolver. Avoid military surplus or hot loaded
ammo. The use of reloaded, Super-Vel. +P, hioh pressure or hand loaded ammunition
will void the warranty.
NOTICE
REVOLVERS ARE CLASSIFIED AS FIREARMS OR DANGEROUS WEAPONS and are
sold by European American Armory Corporation with the specific understanding that
we are not responsible in any manner what- so-ever for their safe handling or resale
under local laws and regulations,
2
European American Armory shall not be responsible in any manner whatsoever for
malfunctioning of the firearm, for physical injury or for property damage resulting in
whole or in part from (1) intentional or negligent discharge, (2) improper or careless
handling, (3) unauthorized modifications and/or alteration to the internal/safety
mechanisms, (4) defective, improper, high pressure, hand-loaded, or reloaded
ammunition, (5) corrosion and/or lack of proper maintenance (6) neglect, or (7) other
influences beyond our direct and immediate control. This limitation applies regardless
of whether liability is asserted on the basis of contract, negli- gence or strict liability
(including any failure to warn). Under no circumstance shall European American
Armory Corporation be liable for incidental or consequential damages, such as loss of
use of property, commercial loss and loss of earnings or profits.
SAFETY PROCEDURES
1. We recommend that you get competent firearms instruction in safe handling
before using this firearm. Please ask your dealer. All guns are extremely
dangerous if carelessly handled or used. Remember that the firearm user is the
primary “safety” and to depend on any mechanical devices is to be only half
safe.
2. THIS FIREARM WILL FIRE IF A ROUND (CARTRIDGE) IS IN FIRING CHAM-
BER, THE HAMMER IS FULLY COCKED AND THE TRIGGER IS PULLED.
3. DO NOT LOAD THIS REVOLVER UNTIL YOU UNDERSTAND HOW THIS
REVOLVER OPERATES. KEEP this revolver unloaded at all times except when
ready to fire and you are sure of your target.
4. ALWAYS carry this revolver in its case and unloaded.
5. NEVER point this revolver at anything that is not your intended target even if
this revolver is unloaded. When loading, cleaning, unloading or handling,
always be sure the muzzle is pointed in a safe direction and always keep your
finger off the trigger.
6. NEVER assume any gun is unloaded. Before handling, check to make sure all
the firing chambers are empty. See unloading Instructions and then unload
any ammunition. Make sure you know that this or any firearm is fully unloaded
before displaying or handling it. When handling any firearm, keep your fingers
away from the trigger at all times until you intend to fire.
7. WARNING: The actual firearm does not contain any lead; however, it does fire
ammunition containing lead or lead compounds known to the State of Califor-
nia to cause cancer, birth defects, reproductive toxicity, and other serious
physical injury. Those who discharge a firearm, stand near someone who
discharges a firearm or cleans firearms are hereby warned of the.dangers
presented by lead and lead compounds and should take protective health
measures, Avoid exposure to lead while handling and wash your hands after
contact. Proper air ventilation is absolutely necessary when shooting indoors.
3
AMMUNITION WARNING
Old, Hot-loaded and/or re-loaded ammunition may be dangerous. Because of the
poor or nonexistent quality control standards among some companies or people
who make reloaded ammunition and the dangers of overloads and underloads
(squib loads) which may occur, we recommend that only good quality new factory
ammunition be fired in our firearms. [If you prepare your own handloads, do NOT
exceed recommended pressures in line with those generated by standard factory
loads as manu- factured by Remington, Winchester, Federal, PMC or other repu-
table companies.] Do NOT use +P Ammo or High Velocity High Pressure Ammuni-
tion (factory or handloaded). Old ammunition may not fire with sufficient force to
expel the projectile from the barrel.
WARNINGS -- READING THESE SAFETY RULES WILL
SAVE YOUR LIFE OR THE LIFE OF SOMEONE ELSE
Get instructions from a competent firearms instructor before using this or any
firearm. Learn from a professional how to handle, load, unload, operate, fire and
care for your gun.
NEVER PLAY with your firearm. It is not a toy and can be a very dangerous
weapon that can cause serious personal injury or death.
Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction. Treat everygun as if it is loaded...
all the time. NEVER point any firearm (loaded or unloaded) at any person or
anything you do not intend to shoot. Always keep your gun unloaded until ready
to use and make sure that it is unloaded before cleaning.
Keep your finger OFF the trigger until you are actually aiming at the target and
ready to shoot. Learn to rest your finger outside of the trigger guard.
Never rely on a gun’s “safety” to protect you from unsafe gun handling. A safety is
only a mechanical device, not a substitute for common sense and gun safety
procedures.
Never leave a gun unattended or where it could fall and fire.
Store guns and ammunition separately beyond the reach of children.
Make sure that they are properly secured so untrained individuals and children will
be denied access to your guns and ammo.
Test your gun’s operation and safeties only at a shooting range while the firearm is
pointed in a safe direction.
Know your target and what is beyond. Ask yourself what your bullet will hit if it
misses the target or passes through the intended target. Remember, a fired bullet
can travel over a mile (including a ricochet) and is capable of going through walls.
Guns and alcohol or drugs do not mix. Don’t take any alcoholic beverages and/or
drugs before or during shooting activities.
4
Never pull a gun toward you by the muzzle. Don’t climb a tree, cross a ditch or
fence with a loaded gun.
Always empty guns before entering a house, car, truck, boat; RV, camp or any
building.
When receiving a gun, always open the loading gate and check to make sure all
chambers are unloaded.
NEVER accept anyone’s word that a gun is “unloaded” or “empty”. You should
immediately open the action and check to make sure it is unloaded.
Be careful with &J ammunition. Even “blank” cartridges are deadly at close range
due to the muzzle blast. Make sure your ammunition is in new and in good clean
condition, Do NOT oil or grease ammo as this may damage the cartridge primer.
Do NOT tamper with or alter the standard factory ammunition.
Keep firearms unloaded when not actually in use. Load the gun only when on the
range preparing to fire and unload it before leaving the range.
Never put your hand over the muzzle of a gun.
ALWAYS WEAR protective shooting glasses and hearing protection when using
firearms.
Spectators should be at least 10 feet behind and away from the shooter while the
shooter is loading, shooting and unloading. Spectators should wear protection for
hearing and sight loss and they should avoid distracting those shooting their
firearms.
Never carry a handgun in your pocket, purse or tucked in a belt or waistband. Use
a revolver case or a proper holster with safety flap or strap.
Never drop your gun. If you do drop it, unload it and check it for proper function
before using it again.
Do NOT alter or modify your gun. Don’t try to change your gun’s trigger pull,
because it may affect sear engagement and thereby cause accidental firing.
Do NOT remove any internal safety or safety device on the firearm. Safety mecha-
nisms are designed to protect you from injury or death.
Do maintain and keep your gun clean. Keep in a dry place away from other metals
and water. If your gun shows sign of corrosion or improper operation, have it
serviced by a competent gunsmith.
Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction when loading and unloading your gun.
Never point the muzzle at anyone.
Never shoot at hard flat surfaces or water....bullets ricochet.
5
If a gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, keep it pointed down range at the
target for 30 seconds. Sometimes slow primer ignition will cause a “hang fire” and
the cartridge will go off after a short pause. If it still fails to fire, keep muzzle pointed
in safe direction and avoid exposure to the breech, as you attempt to unload your
firearm.
Never let water, snow, mud or other material enter the barrel.
Always be sure the barrel is free of any obstruction.
Since many ammunition identifications sound similar, be sure that you use only the
correct ammunition for your gun. Do NOT use the wrong size or wrong strength
ammunition in your firearm.
Repeated and prolonged exposure to gunfire may cause toxic levels of lead in your
body. High levels of lead in the blood may result cancer, impotency, birth defects
and other serious physical injury. When shooting indoors, make sure there is
proper fresh air ventilation.
Teach children: 1. NOT to touch guns, bullets, cartridges, shells, flares or any
explosive device and 2. If they discovery such a dangerous item or weapon, they
must immediately report its location to their parents, school.teacher and police.
Remember a firearm has the capability of taking your life or the life of someone else.
Be careful with your firearm -- an accident is almost always the result of not follow-
ing basic safety rules.
HOME SAFETY IS PROBABLY YOUR BIGGEST CONCERN. We suggest a gun
lock such as Master Gun Locks. They work on most firearms and are available in
gun shops and sporting goods departments. For more information write: Master
Gun Locks; Master Lock Company, P.O. Box 10367, Milwaukee. WI 53210. You
have invested this much in your new firearm, now invest a little more in your family’s
safety.
USED FIREARMS - If you got your European American Armory firearm as a used
gun, BEFORE USING IT you should unload it and check all its functions to be sure
it works correctly. Firearms are some times altered to work incorrectly, or parts may
be removed, lost or replaced with incorrect parts. First, unload it and check it
yourself and then take it to a good gunsmith who knows European American
Armory firearms, and have him examine it.
WRITE US concerning any items or circumstances which you don’t understand
and which might relate to your safety and the operation of your firearm.
WARNING
BEFORE LOADING or firing a revolver, examine the bore and the firing chambers to
be certain they are clean and free of any obstruction. Even a heavy coat of oil,
grease or water may result in damage to the firearm and injury to the shooter and/or
persons near the firearm. A misfire or unusual sound upon firing is a signal to
cease firing and to examine the chambers and bore. If there is any obstruction,
clear the obstruction and clean the bore and chambers before firing.
HANDLING WARNING
Do not load the revolver until you are ready to use it.
NEVER CARRY ANY REVOLVER WITH THE HAMMER COCKED OR WITH THE
TRIGGER HELD TO THE REAR. If the trigger is held to the rear, the gun can fire if
the hammer strikes the transfer bar. Note that it need not be a deliberate effort to
pull the trigger. Any situation where the trigger attains its rearward position and
permits the transfer bar to be interposed between the hammer and the firing pin can
cause the cartridge under the firing pin to discharge if the hammer falls or is struck.
NEVER DROP OR STRIKE ANY REVOLVER -- COCKED OR UNCOCKED. AL-
WAYS CARRY AND HANDLE THE REVOLVER IN SUCH A MANNER THAT THE
HAMMER WILL NOT BE STRUCK.
1. HANDLING IN GENERAL
This revolver has a transfer bar safety and does not require an unloaded chamber
under the hammer; however, it is a good safety practice to keep one chamber
empty in the cylinder and the hammer at rest on this empty chamber.
The Small Bore Bounty Hunter has an internal safety device which keeps the
hammer from striking the firing pin except when the hammer is in the third position
(full cock) and the trigger is pulled completely back. After each shot, the trigger
must return to the forward position. If it does not, unload the revolver immediately
and do not use until it has been repaired by a competent gunsmith or EAA.
This is a single action revolver and thus, you can not cock the hammer by pulling
the trigger. This Small Bore Bounty Hunter single action revolver must be cocked
manually for each shot. Always keep your finger off the trigger while handling this
firearm. The only time you should pull the trigger, is when firing the revolver or
when carefully lowering the hammer. Never force the trigger or hammer to move.
2. HOW TO LOAD AND UNLOAD
MAKE SURE GUN IS POINTED IN A
SAFE DIRECTION. Move the hammer LOADING POSITION
to the loading position or 2nd notch.
Swing out the cylinder loading gate.
Insert the cartridges while progressively .#
revolving the cylinder.
OR
One method of loading your revolver
and finishing with an empty chamber
lined up with the firing pin, is to load
one chamber but not the next one, then
load the other four chambers (load one,
skip one, load four), close loading gate
and pull hammer
7
all the way back with a smooth stroke.
Then controlling the hammer very carefully SAFETY POSITION
with your thumb (WARNING THE GUN
COULD FIRE IF THERE IS A LOADED
ROUND IN THE CHAMBER UNDER THE
HAMMER AND IF THE HAMMER WERE TO
SLIP OUT FROM UNDER YOUR THUMB
WHILE YOU WERE LOWERING IT) ,
squeeze the trigger and let the hammer
down gently to the rest position.
Always keep the hammer in the rest position except when you intend to shoot. The
rest position is when the hammer is against the frame, the trigger is fully forward and
the transfer bar is out of the firing position. If you do not understand this procedure,
ask your firearms instructor to explain it to you.
EXTRACTION OF EMPTY CASES:
Make sure that all cartridges have been fired. Make sure the gun is pointed in a safe
direction. Move the hammer into the 2nd notch. Rotate the gate aside. Press the
ejector rod which enters the chamber and expels the cartridge case. Let the ejector
thumb piece come back, locate the next chamber before it, and repeat the proce-
dure.
Before closing the gate, make sure that the cylinder is totally unloaded by causing it
to perform a full revolution.
Once you have extracted the empty cases and you do not wish to reload the gun,
close the loading gate and pull the hammer all the way back with a smooth stroke.
Then controlling the hammer very carefully with your thumb, squeeze the trigger
and let the hammer down to the rest position. [Always make sure the gun is
pointed in a safe direction during any hammer or trigger movement] The rest
position is when the hammer is against the frame, the trigger.is fully forward and the
transfer bar is out of the firing position.
3. HOW TO COCK AND FIRE
KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER AND OUT OF THE TRIGGER GUARD
First, point the muzzle in the direction of fire. Secondly, keep your firearm pointed
in this direction or a safe direction at all times. In order to fire the revolver, the
hammer must be moved from the rest position or from the 2nd notch position, to
the fully cocked position. After the hammer is manually cocked (See cocking note
next page), you must pull (squeeze) the trigger. The firearm will fire one shot. The
sequence of cocking the hammer and pulling the trigger must take place to fire
each shot. When the trigger is pulled back, the transfer bar moves up into firing
position and the hammer is released so that a cartridge is fired.
WARNING: When cocking the hammer, have a firm hold on the grip with the
shooting hand. DO NOT TOUCH THE TRIGGER WHILE COCKING THE HAMMER.
TOUCH THE TRIGGER ONLY WHEN YOU ARE READY TO FIRE.
8
COCKING -- Place the fore portion of the thumb firmly on the hammer spur and pull
the hammer fully to the rear until it stops. Then, permit the hammer to move very
slightly forward until the trigger engages the hammer at full cock.
FIRING -- Once the hammer has been cocked, pressure on the trigger will disen-
gage the trigger from the hammer. The hammer will fall forward against the transfer
bar, the transfer bar in turn strikes the firing pin and the firing pin strikes the loaded
cartridge in the chamber, causing discharge of a bullet.
FIRING WARNING
When firing any revolver, be sure all spectators are a safe distance to the rear of the
shooter. When fired, all revolvers have “sideblast” or cylinderblast” which is the
discharge of hot gas and particles through the clearance gap between the cylinder
and the rear of the barrel. These particles of lead, powder grains or lubricants are
projected broadly sideways at high speeds and thus, can injure any person who is
too close to the revolver. When firing any revolver, always be certain that nothing --
including either of your hands -- is in the path of the hot gas and particles which are
discharged from the front and sides of the cylinder. When firing, do not rest your
revolver against your hand, legs or
body where the muzzle or cylinder sideways blast can hit you. Always keep the
side of the revolver away from you or bystanders. Keep people behind and away
from you while firing.
When shooting, full eye and ear protection is mandatory at all times. Shooters and
spectators must wear shooting glasses and sound suppressor to prevent eye injury
and hearing loss. Vision loss and hearing impairment can occur with only one
moment of non-protection.
NEVER quick-draw a loaded revolver and never fan the hammer of this revolver.
Quick-draws and fanning are dangerous to you and others. They are abusive to
the firearm and will void the warranty.
WARNING
ANY BORE OBSTRUCTION, EVEN IF IT IS ONLY PARTLY BLOCKED, MAY
CAUSE THE GUN TO BLOW UP IF IT IS FIRED, OR MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO
THE GUN SUCH AS A BULGED BARREL. TO AVOID INJURY OR DEATH TO THE
SHOOTER OR BYSTANDERS, CHECK THE BARREL BEFORE SHOOTING OR IF
A SHOT DOES NOT SOUND NORMAL.
WARNING
Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction! Never attempt to load or
unload any firearm inside a vehicle, building or other confined space (except a
properly constructed shooting range). Enclosed areas frequently offer no com-
pletely safe direction in which to point the firearm. If an accidental discharge
occurs, there is great risk of injury or property damage. Before loading, always
clean all, grease and oil from the bore and chamber, and check to be certain that
no obstruction is in the barrel. Any foreign matter in the barrel could result in a
bulged or burst barrel or other damage to the firearm and could cause serious
injury to the shooter or to others.
WARNING
If there is any reason to suspect that a bullet or projectile is obstructing the barrel,
immediately unload the firearm (See Unloading Instructions) and check the firing
chambers and the bore. It is not sufficient to merely remove the cylinder and look
at the rear of the barrel or bore. A bullet may be lodged some distance down the
barrel where it can not easily be seen. Check the bore by using a cleaning rod to
pass through the barrel. If a bullet is in the bore, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SHOOT IT
OUT WITH ANOTHER CARTRIDGE, OR BLOW IT OUT WITH A BLANK CAR-
TRIDGE OR A CARTRIDGE FROM WHICH THE BULLET HAS BEEN REMOVED.
SUCH TECHNIQUE(S) CAN GENERATE EXCESSIVE PRESSURE, DAMAGE THE
FIREARM AND CAUSE SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY. If the bullet can be
removed with a cleaning rod, clean any unburned powder grains from the bore,
chambers & mechanism before resuming shooting. If the bullet can not be
dislodged by tapping it with a cleaning rod, take the firearm to a gunsmith.
WARNING (Mechanical Malfunctions)
STOP SHOOTING IMMEDIATELY AND UNLOAD YOUR FIREARM if your firearm
develops: a mechanical malfunction; binding or stoppage; spitting powder/gas; a
cartridge primer is punctured; a cartridge case is bulged or ruptured; or the sound
on firing does not sound quite right. Do NOT try one more shot but unload your
firearm and take it and the ammunition to a qualified gunsmith or send it back to
EAA for examination. Do not assume that the revolver is empty merely because
you checked the cylinder. You must also check the bore for any fired bullet
jammed inside the barrel.
4. HOW TO DECOCK
TO UNCOCK (DECOCK) THE REVOLVER:
If the revolver is cocked and you wish to uncock the revolver without firing it,
proceed as follows:
USE EXTREME CARE WHEN ATTEMPTING TO DECOCK THE REVOLVER AS
THE THUMB SLIPPING DURING THIS PROCESS CAN RESULT IN AN ACCIDEN-
TAL DISCHARGE IF THE TRIGGER IS HELD TO THE REAR.
10
1. Make certain that the revolver is pointing in a safe [
direction.
2. Make certain both hands are dry and not impeded
in any way --- gloves, bandage, cold, etc.
3. Grasp the revolver (if right handed) so that the
thumb and forefinger of your left hand are firmly
holding the frame, forward of the trigger guard.
Thus, your left hand is in full control of the re-
volver. (See Figure A)
4. Place your right thumb firmly on the hammer spur and with your thumb securely
in control of the hammer, squeeze the trigger only enough to permit the hammer
to break free of the trigger. At that instant, slowly permit the hammer (STILL
SECURE UNDER YOUR THUMB) to move forward to its resting position against
the frame.
Practice this important gun handling skill with an unloaded revolver until you have
developed the proper control and touch to safely decock your revolver. The key to
safe decocking is having the weight of the revolver controlled with one hand, while
the thumb and forefinger of the “shooting hand” control the hammer and trigger.
CYLINDER REMOVAL OR REPLACEMENT
WARNING: Never attempt to remove or replace a loaded cylinder.
1. Using previous instructions, move hammer into 2nd notch.
2. Open gate
3. Press base pin release and withdraw base pin.
4. Remove cylinder from gate side of revolver.
5. To replace the cylinder, simply reverse the above procedure. Rotate cylinder in a
clockwise direction to ensure that hand is correctly positioned on cylinder
ratchet, before replacing base pin. Make sure that when you install the base pin
that the base pin release pops out, this will assure you that the base pin has been
fully inserted when the release pops out to it’s locked position.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE OF REVOLVER
1. Materials needed to clean this revolver are: a cleaning rod, cotton bore patches,
brass bore brush, powder solvent, a small soft brush and good quality gun oil.
2. After making sure the revolver is unloaded, remove the cylinder from the revolver
as discussed previously in this instruction manual.
WARNING: Lead or lead compounds are known to the State of California to cause
cancer, birth defects, reproductive toxicity, and other serious physical injury. Those
who clean firearms should take protective measures to avoid contact or exposure to
such chemicals.
11
3. Using the bore brush with powder solvent scrub the barrel and chambers to
remove any powder and lead residue in the bore. Secondly, swab the bore and
cylinder with cotton patches soaked in solvent. Always and lastly, swab with
cotton patch with gun oil to coat and protect the bore and chambers from rust
and corrosion.
4. Any powder fowling on the cylinder, firing wall, barrel, etc. can be easily cleaned
with a brush and powder solvent.
5. All external surfaces should be wiped down with light coat of rust preventative.
Avoid using too much oil as dust and/or debris can get trapped in the oil creating
a gum that in time will cause misfires.
6. CAUTION in using solvents in gun bore cleaning. Prolonged or excess contact
with finish or bluing can damage the gun’s finish. Be sure to wipe away all
excess solvent and then lubricate with oil.
7. A gun should be cleaned after firing. In addition, external parts should be wiped
with an oiled cloth after handling. A light oil is ordinarily all that is necessary in
cleaning if the gun has not been fired or fired very little. If a gun is used fre-
quently, it must be cleaned after each firing and regularly serviced by a profes-
sional gunsmith. If the gun has been stored, remove all excess oil and/or grease
before firing. Always check to be sure that no cleaning patch or other obstruc-
tion remains in the bore or chambers before firing.
DANGER - AMMUNITION WARNING
Firearms may be damaged and serious injury or death to the shooter or bystander
may result from any condition which contributes to the generation of excessive
pressure or uncontrolled release of gas within the firearm. Such adverse conditions
can be caused by bore or chamber obstruction, propellant powder overloads or by
defective, incorrect or improperly loaded and assembled cartridge components.
Even the strongest firearm can be blown up as a result of excessive pressure. It is
extremely dangerous to use a cartridge whose pressure is greater than that devel-
oped by cartridges loaded to industry standards.
AMMUNITION (CARTRIDGES) NOTICE
We specifically disclaim responsibility for any damage, injury or death occurring in
connection with or as the result of the use of European American Armory revolvers
of faulty, non-standard, remanufactured, hand loaded or reloaded ammunition,
used cartridges or cartridges other than factory cartridges for which the firearm was
originally chambered.
12
LUBRICATION WARNING
Firing a revolver with oil, grease or any other material even partially obstructing the
bore may result in damage to the revolver and injury to the shooter and those
nearby. Do not spray or apply lubricants directly on ammunition. If the powder
charge of a cartridge is affected by the lubricant, it may not be ignited, but the
energy from the primer may be sufficient to push the bullet into the bore where it
may become lodged. Firing a subsequent bullet into the obstructed bore will
damage the revolver and may cause injury to the shooter and those nearby. Use
lubricants properly. You are responsible for the proper care and maintenance of
your firearm and ammunition.
