Can someone instruct me on how to disassemble the bolt?

I need to remove all the parts inside the bolt to have it anodized.

The firing pin pin wont come out and the ejector pin will not come out in either direction, even with releasing the pressure on them.

What gives?????

I'm assuming you have the bolt out of the receiver. To remove the extractor and the firing pin, you must use a pin punch to drive out the pins that retain these parts in place. If I remember correctly, the pins will only come out in one direction. After checking, the pins are driven out the top from the bottom of the bolt. Beretta recommends this be done by a gunsmith, and unless you already have the pin punches and are comptent, I would recommend you also do that. And I won't ask why you are anodizing the bolt!

You guys are correct, the pins punch out from the bottom with relative force as the exit holes were not enlarged enought, there was metal blocking the hole. I ran into this when i was replacing the bolt closure on 1 of my Sporting clays guns and remembered the metal blocking that hole as well.

The reason for the Black anodizing is i've camo dipped one of my 391 20 ga. to be used for Duck hunting and upland game birds. Seems Beretta has yet to realize the market for a camo utility gun in 20 ga. period. At least to my knowledge. And the Benelli version has too sharp a kick for me weighing a measly 5 lbs.

To have a Natgear camo 20 that'll bust Ducks in 3" shells and fit perfectly is awesome. Now i have just got to get rid of the Chrome bolt.

That "metal blocking the hole" is called staking.

Good luck keeping the pin in if you don't re-stake them in.

Thanks for the reply, and what is this material comprised of?

I didn't remove it just forced the pin thru it, it's still firm to insert and remove so not all of it is gone.

"Stake" means to put a pointed punch on the metal next to the hole and strike it hard enough to upset the metal, forcing a little of it into the hole, thus locking the pin in place.
