    I was given this gun by a friend because he could not get the bolt out of it... Well i have taken it apart down to the barrel and receiver being left to disassemble... Still no luck getting the bold out... It only comes up from the locked in position maybe a half inch... Not letting the bolt handle to reach the upward position.. Any advice?

    The picture doesn't show the explanation...it is missing a gas shield and i think if i remove the barrel it might help

    Have you tried removing the trigger assembly?

    Removing the barrel will show you the end of the bolt and not much else.
    The suggestion to remove the trigger assembly is the best so far.
    Because the trigger assembly allows the firing pin to release, it is connected somehow to the bolt. If the trigger is messed up, then the bolt may have interference in moving.
