Have Firearms Repair Questions? Ask an Expert
My name is Jon. I will do my best to help. How is it jammed (in the chamber, magazine or other)? Is it a live or spent round?
You will need a piece of 1/4" diameter by 30"" ling or so brass rod from your local hardware store. Keep the muzzle in a safe direction. Lift upon the bolt handle as if to open the bolt. Simply dropping the brass rod into the bore may pro is enough force to dislodge the empty shell casing. If not then a few light taps to the brass rod with a hammer should do it. be carful not to be in front of the muzzle in case it is a live round. Let me know how it works.
Good evening. My name is ***** ***** I understand you have asked for a new expert to handle your issue. I want to make sure that I understand the situation. Is there is a bullet or a shell casing in the barrel?
Have you tried to tap the bolt open with a rubber mallet?
The rubber mallet would be what I would try first.
Are you still with me?
Ok, just let me know how it works out. I will be around
ok..you tried the rubber mallet?
Ok...first, for safety reasons, are you sure that the round fired and what is stuck in the chamber is just an empty shell casing?
Ok, I think that we may need to get a gunsmith involved, to avoid any possible damage to the gun. Do you have someone local that you know of?
If not, I can locate a gunsmith for you if you give me your city/state
I'm still here to help you.
