Hi all, new to the forum with a couple questions. I've just picked up a new 336, going through the manual I am struggling to understand something. Page 8 indicates "Never attempt to pull the trigger when the safety mechanism is activated in the safe position".

Page 22 indicates: "with the safety mechanism engaged, cycle the action and fully close the lever by rotating it rearward. Pull the trigger fully rearward and then remove your finger from the trigger. The hammer should release".

Dry fire or no? Pull trigger with safety engaged or no? Thanks in advance.

I appreciate the welcomes and other replies. This is my first lever, but certainly not my first firearm. I've wanted one so I bought it. I'm kind of anal about reading manuals. At this point it will be a plinker, but may deer hunt with it in the future.

I would agree with not dry firing older weapons, or rimfires. Most of todays firearms accept dry firing without problems. I'm just confused by this one.
