    I just inherited an TargetMaster model 510. I have been going over it's operation before taking it out to the range.
    I have worked the action several times but I and cannot figure how to open the bolt without pulling the trigger first.

    What if I want to unload a live round without firing it? Is this possible?

    Thanks

    The Remington 510 usually had an automatic safety. Close the bolt on an empty chamber, push the safety to the "OFF" or "ready to fire" position and you should be able to opem the bolt with the striker cocked.

    If such is not the case; you likely have a problem that requires the services of a competent firearms repairer.

    You are most welcome. All of the Rem. 500 series rifles (except the 514) were the same bolt and basic receiver. For some reason Rem. fitted the 510 with an automatic safety.
