Cock the weapon and apply the safety in the up position. Then pull the bolt back whilst lifting the front of the catch on the left of the receiver. It'll just slide out nicely.

If you don't cock the bolt first, you're in for a world of pain, because it'll not go back in until you cock it :)

I'm not sure you can open the bolt without cocking it to be honest, given it cocks on opening? But you are right, you are in for lots of swearing and hard work if you somehow let the striker into its safe/fired position while the bolt is out. Complete bastard of a job :p

It cocks when you return the handle to the down position. Lifting the handle engages the sear, but doesn't cock the weapon.

Difference of opinion BaggyPants, to me the sear engaging is it being cocked, be it loaded or not. Just the way I was brought up and taught. But there is no need to fully cycle the bolt prior to removal(open, close, then open again with the catch open?). Not that its worth arguing about; Jonny is sorted!

I know what you mean, Greame. To me it's not cocked until you can pull the trigger and release the firing pin. It's the same thing but different :)
