Twist Lock Bolt Action?

How does some of the older non-pump (well, in the sense there isn't a pump) twist lock bolt design work? And how is the bolt removed for cleaning/servicing?

Detailed explanation would be great, although I can't imagine it's thhhat complicated.

I.E. When the gun is at rest, do you twist (clockwise or counterclockwise?) the bolt, then pull it to cock the gun, get a ball chambered, then pushing it back in to the closed position and twist it the reverse direction to lock it in place?

The reason for this is that I want to surprise my cousin with a twist lock bolt action rifle from pps, but I wanna really know what I'm getting myself into before I dedicate the necessary 1k+ funds...

Thank you for the help!
