Initializing the SRS and Covert DT Rifle System

Initializing the SRS A1 is a simple process that can be done in about 5 minutes. Take a second to make sure that you have checked everything on your rifle before putting rounds down range.

When going over your rifle for the first time, make certain to ensure:

  • All parts that you ordered arrived in the shipment (i.e. conversion kit with magazine, bolt, butt pads, etc)
  • Thread protector or muzzle break is tight
  • Sling studs on the rail allow your sling to be inserted easily
  • Handguard is tight
  • Safety functions properly
  • Stock screws are in place
  • Mag release is working properly
  • The 4 barrel retention screws are torqued down (80 inch pounds)
  • The barrel lock is in the “lock” position
  • Bolt is sliding smoothly


If you receive your conversion kit in a separate package, you can refer to the Installing the Conversion Kit tutorial.
