If it is a J.C. Higgins bolt action shotgun, there is a small set screw on the left side of the receiver top between the bolt handle and the ejection port. Use a flat tip screwdriver and take out that screw. It is litterally the metal peg that the bolt is running back into. Without the screw, the bolt comes straight out the rear.
