There is a screw in the back of the bolt. It's hard but loosen it a little to see if that helps.

yeah its loctited needs heat hold a lit match up to it as long as you can then try unscrewing it

Try using a pair of pliers to get the top cocking pin out. You might be able to get it out that way. Otherwise you'll have to try to loosen the screw on the back of the bolt.

I have the same problem witht he bolt thing it comes out like half way but then its just really hard to get out....

You have taken the cocking knob out right? Well if its coming halfway out you need to turn on the trigger frame and shoot it a couple times while pulling it out. The reason it won't come out is because the sear is sticking up and preventing it from coming out. Pulling the trigger pulls the sear down. So while pulling the trigger pull out the bolt at the same time.

Oh, the white bolt? Yea I know you have to shoot to get it out...I thought he ment the cocking PIN...The one you need to use to cock the bolt... Hehe OPPS:D :D :D

Oh he is talking about the cocking pin, I thought you were talking about the actual bolt.

I tried using plyers to pry the pin out but no luck i will try the match trick later on the screw to see if that works but the outside of the bolt is plastic so will have to use small amount of heat if it is lock tite

well since it's all delrin it should be fairly easy as long as you ahve the right sized screw driver.
