One way is to use the pump action to release the round from the chamber and cock the gun back into its original state.

Another way is to hold the gun backward and hit the trigger with your thumb, which will release the hammer.

Finally, you can also use a screwdriver or another object to press down on the bolt and release it from the firing pin.

Whichever way you choose, be sure to take all necessary safety precautions before handling firearms.

  • One way is to use a dowel or another object to push the cartridges out of the chamber from the muzzle end.
  • Another way is to use a cleaning rod or other object to push the cartridges out of the chamber from the breech end.
  • A third way is to use your fingers to push the cartridges out of the chamber from either end.

Whichever method you choose, be sure not to put your hand in front of the muzzle when pushing on the rounds, as this can cause injury.

One way is to hold the gun sideways and use your finger to push the cocking lever back down.

Another way is to use a pencil or other object to push the lever back down.

A third way is to use the ejector port. Point the gun in a safe direction and press down on the port with your thumb. The gun will uncock and eject any shells that are in the chamber.
