    I got it figured out. There is a black 'half circle' metal band used as tensioner on the RH extractor on the bolt. It had moved out of the center slot somehow and all the pushing/pulling of safety, trigger, etc. would not allow the bolt to come out. so once that little band was put back in place, all went as it should. difficult to see as it only takes 1/16" out of alignment and 'no workie'. thanks,
