Bolt/Sleeve Stuck

I've got a wood core steel door with a sticky handset. Knobs and mechanism are off ok, but the bolt and it's sleeve will hardly budge. I'm guessing part of the sleeve is 'spring loaded' in some fashion to help it stay in place? It's a National set. Maybe rotate clockwise or counter-clockwise? I don't want to get too brutal - seems I could destroy the part of the core that the bolt/sleeve go thru.

EDITED - I did get it out and it was 'spring-loaded' but only in such away as to keep it in. Rotating did help tho and it did mangle the core a little. Off to the hardware now for a new one.
