    It's different for some shotguns. Learn how to disengage yours and not rely on what works for someone else. You can do this safely with either a snap cap or an empty hull to learn what works for your shotgun.

    I have Spears and Timney release trigger assemblys and both are re-set by a push to re-set lever on the LH side of trigger housing. These are in my 1100 trap guns. Very early units did require holding trigger rearward while reaching over and pulling bolt back.

    On my 390 which was done by Spears, about half way back is enough to reset the trigger, but you also have to release the trigger while the bolt is open to reset it. Since I don't like to take a chance that releasing the trigger might cause the hammer to hit the firing pin and result in firing the shell while the bolt is open, I just go ahead and pull the bolt all the way back and eject the shell from the chamber. With the Beretta autoloaders, manually ejecting the shell from the chamber does NOT feed another from the magazine.
