(If unable to turn by hand, DO NOT attempt to remove with pliers or other tools as this denotes the gun is under pressure.) Hold muzzle end down and used Powerlets will drop out. Insert first Powerlet into Tube, neck end down. Insert second Powerlet into Tube, neck end up. Screw Tube Cap firmly into place by hand, then back off cap quickly 1/8 turn only, to pierce front Powerlet and release gas into Tube. If Powerlet does not pierce, retighten cap and repeat operation.

NOTICE: The valve in this gun is designed for use with the Crosman Golden Powerlet only. Other type C02 cylinders will not function in this gun. IMPORTANT: Proper oiling of Pellguns will eliminate most sealing failures. USE SPARINGLY. Excessive oiling is harmful to gun action. Three or four drops is sufficient for each seal or oiling point. Apply every 250 shots or when parts appear dry. Be sure "O" Ring on knurled tube cap is clean and free of foreign matter. Never use penetrating, detergent type or regular gun oils, as they may be harmful to valve washers and seals. USE SPECIAL CROSMAN PELLGUNOIL FOR BEST RESULTS.

TRIGGER ADJUSTMENT: This rifle is equipped with internal trigger and sear adjustment. Adjustments should be made only by authorized service stations or a competent gunsmith. A trigger which is adjusted extremely fine (so-called hairtrigger) can be dangerous if gun is dropped or bolt operated roughly. TO ADJUST REAR SIGHT: Windage: Turning adjustment screw clockwise moves target group to left. Turning adjustment counterclockwise moves group to right. Elevation: Turning adjustment screw clockwise lowers target group. Turning adjustment counterclockwise raises group. TO REMOVE STOCK: Push safety lever down and back 180 degrees to "S" Safe Position, push safety assembly out of trigger guard casting from left side. Unscrew and remove knurled locating nut on underside of stock. Lift gun assembly out of stock. TO REPLACE STOCK: Press gun assembly firmly into stock. Attach knurled nut on bottom of stock. Nut must be kept tight. With a blunt instrument depress the safety rod assembly from the left side and with the safety lever pointing towards trigger, press safety assembly into hole in the trigger guard casting from the right side. Safety can be changed to left hand by inserting safety lever assembly from left side.

CARE OF RIFLE: The Model 160 Series Crosman CO2 Pellgun Rifle is a precision built gun of the most modern design and construction. Materials have been carefully selected for quality and long life. Before it is released for shipment, it has passed numerous rigid inspections and has been test fired for performance. Treat it with the same fine care that you give your other valued possessions and it will give you many years of carefree pleasure and enjoyment. Never use steel darts or other hard missiles. Use only Crosman Super Pells for accuracy and long barrel life. The design and materials used in other brands can cause feeding failure and plugged barrels. It is not necessary to clean the barrel, but an occasional light coat of oil is recommended to prevent rusting. CAUTION: Do NOT expose charged gun or Powerlets to excessive heat or cold. REPAIR SERVICE: Refer to the attached Service Station list for service, including warranty repair work, or see your dealer where purchased. Disassembly will void warranty. Replacement Powerlets in a convenient pocket size pack, Crosman Super Pells, and Crosman Targets can be obtained at Sporting Goods Dealers everywhere.
