Ruger .22 auto

The gun hasn't been fired in 20+ years. We cannot pull the slide back, it won't move. The gun is not cocked. The trigger moves freely. Any suggestions? it was my friends Fathers and he has no knowledge of firearms. my assembly instructions says "if the strut is not in place, the bolt cannot be drawn back". Thanks, Ed

    Ricci got it. It's kinda like the trapeze move at the circus.

    Thanks guys. I called a friend who is an instructor at our local gunsmith college and he said "Bring 'er down, Ed!". Boy, was it ever dirty, he even cleaned up some of the rust spots. My friend, the owner will be very pleased to have his Dad's gun in working order. Small towns are the best.
