Brand new SA459 never fired. I was trying to familiarize myself with the gun before going to the range. Iíve checked and rechecked barrel assembly piston etc. I cannot get the bolt but half way back what am I doing wrong?

Welcome to the nation! Since it's brand new, I would check with Weatherby. Either by email or a phone call, it can't hurt to ask.  :)

Problem solved. Moved safety to fire and I was able to work the action. Found the solution on a shotgun forum.
