This Quick Start Guide is not a substitute for the Dimension rifle safety and instruction manual.

You must read the manual carefully and in its entirety before you can safely use your Dimension rifle.

Thanks for choosing the revolutionary Dimension bolt-action platform. Its called a platform because you can change components and calibers to hunt any game animal in North America. This guide will show you how to change components in less than 3 minutes. You can also watch a demonstration video at www.DimensionRifle.com. The secret to the unique capability in Dimension is our Locking Optimized Components (LOC) System. It allows you to change Dimension components and calibers quickly and guarantees MOA accuracy - 3 shots into a one-inch group at 100 yards. ThE LOC SYSTEM consists of 7 parts a universal stock and receiver that accept multiple barrels, magazine groups (magazine and housing), bolts and bridge scope mounts. Dimension hand tools work with all Dimension rifles. LOC components are sold in color-coded packages. LOC parts are stamped Series A, B, C or D. The package colors help you choose the right components at the store. The letters help you match components once you get them home. UNIVERSAL LOC PARTS: All LOC stocks, receivers, optional bridge scope mounts and hand tools are universal. They fit all Dimension rifle components: Series A, B, C and D.

SERIES LOC PARTS: Bolts and magazine groups (magazine and housing) fit any caliber in a Series: A, B, C or D.* Bolts are stamped with Series letters for easy identification. For example, a Series A bolt fits .204 Ruger and .223 Rem calibers. A magazine group stamped C fits .270 Win and .30-06 Sprg.
(See adjacent table)

CALIBER-SPECIFIC BARRELS: LOC barrels are specific to one single caliber. Each barrel is stamped with a Series letter, so you can identify the bolt and magazine that match it.
(See adjacent table.) * Series B .22-250 REM magazine is different from other Series B magazines.
