    Go down inside the bottom and pull the ejector out . It,s held in by a spring but be gentel . Then push the bolt back lifting the back of the bolt out.

    On the left side of the receiver located just behind the bolt is the ejector spring. It has to be pried out of the round cut out in the receiver. Then slide and lift the bolt at the same time toward the rear of the receiver. It should come out by working it slowly, back and upwards. Hap

    OK I've got the spring backed ejector out that was on the left side of the receiver but I cannot lift the bolt out when it is all the way to the rear of the receiver, it will lift about an 1/8" but won't come further...

    The pump slide is still connected, I haven't touched that yet, should I...?

    it seems like the pump slide arm or linkage might be connected to something on the bolt...?

    the bolt seems totally free and is very loose but doesn't want to lift out...

    regards

    You should of removed the barrel first . With the barrel off the bolt will be in battery then if you look at the bottom of the bolt on the left side is a small catch And that is holding the bolt in battery , With a small pick just push the catch back from the reciver and the bolt is free .

    I don't see it, unless it is actually on the bolt side at the opening in the receiver...?

    otherwise I don't see anything to push...

    Part number 33 is what you have to move, it pivots on a pin. Move it in with a knife blade so that neither end prevents the bolt from being removed from the receiver. If you are still having trouble I'll try to scan a picture from my manual tomorrow as it is in the shop and I am not.

    The part your looking for is under the op-rod on the bolt .

    If you don't know the answer to a question simply don't answer. A few of you guys didn't tell him about the bolt lock or part 33 as shown above and most likely didn't know yourselves. Gun clubs are full of people giving advice about things they don't know about, we don't need it here too!!!!!!!! I'm just a dumb farm kid don't know much don't give alot of advice but I know a model 12

    I can take apart and reassemble a Super X Model 1 blindfolded but know diddly about the Model 12 and 42...

    I have been in Super X1's for years and now moving sideways into Model 12's and Model 42's...

    I am rejeweling the Bolt and Carrier on my new Model 12 and that is why I need to disassemble...

    thank you for all the great assistance...

    regards
