    Default I am apparently not too bright.

    Ok gentlemen, I have done something really stupid. I have inserted my bolt assembly in my frame and let it drop all the way forward until it locked, the rollers are extended. Here is the problem. I did it without the cocking mechanism installed. In other words no way to draw the assembly back. What are my options and how do I get this assembly out?

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    PS its a G3/PTR91

    Put the stock back on and set the butt on a bench or the floor. Place a flat end steel punch into the cocking slot and rest it on the end of the carrier extension. Smack it with a plastic mallet. It should unlock after a few hits. I did the exact same thing a few nights ago.

    Good luck,
    Kevin

    Smack the back of the receiver squarely on a block of wood or plastic.

    The gun is ruined. Send it to me for proper disposal.

    ^^^^^ This, but send it to me first so I can ensure that is safe.

    Butr seriously, not the end of the world. All suggestions above are good. I do it all the time to check carrier travel in new builds and while doing repairs. I do as GUNNUT suggests and give the ass end a good whack on a soild maple-top table.

    Do your solid maple table top a favor and place a small piece of scrap carpet or something similar on there before giving it a whack.

    It just gives the table some extra character that can't be copied. "That crescent indention right there was my first 51 build." Can't buy those memories.

    Thank you, I appreciate it. I was thinking I would have to take the barrel out.

    Thanks all these suggestions sound good. I had thought of something similar but since I was not comfortable with the operation of the assembly I did not want to damage it.
