First Gen PGP halp
I'm having trouble reviving this old abused gun. The Bolt has been stuck in the gun for who knows how long, and just about all of the gun is filthy.

Any tips for getting the bolt out? I have the rest of the gun taken apart, except the valve (waiting on titus' valve tool).

Valve tool is on it's way ;)

Can you turn the bolt at all? The small pin on the bottom, would come out to one side, you would then either unscrew it or push it in while pulling the bolt back.

soak it in soapy water.. Chances are the inside is full of old nasty paint.

I have not been able to move it through many hammer/dowel hits. I have soaked it in hot water, but will try the soapy water method. It almost appears to have been soldered to the pin that pulls the hammer back, but that may just be dirt.

The aluminum of the bolt oxidized and it's probably enlarged or fused to the tube. Put some break away or penetrating oil down the barrel and let it sit on end for an hour or so. Pull the pump off then find a long allen that fits in the pump arm hole in the bolt. The first mission is just to turn the bolt so you can get the bolt pin out. Hopefully you can get the pin out. If so, use that allen to turn the bolt to loosen it up. Then I'd go with a length of 1/2" dowel down the barrel and try and beat it out of there.

I've got the exact same problem with a P68SC I bought recently. The rest of the gun came in great condition, but the bolt is absoultely stuck in the back.

I've tried doing the soaking method, but the bolt won't budge at all. Being my first sheridan, I'm not overly sure what to look for to sort it out (I've taken plenty of other pistols apart mind, so I've got a basic idea).

I'd appreciate any advice you guys could give on the matter! :)

Right now WD-40 isn't really working and neither is heating it up with a hair dryer.

Is Break away super better than wd-40?
I'm slightly bending the pump arm, but nothing major.
