    Default Breach plug STUCK!!!

    I am having a heck of a time removing a stuck breach plug, it is in a CVA in line any tips or tricks??? HELP!!!

    I have used WD 40, brake loose, liquid wrench, and even SAE oil to try and unbind this thing?!

    Had the gun given to me if I could free it I could have it!

    Take the barrel off. bring a pot of water to almost boiling. prop the breach end in the water and wait about 20 min's. It should come right out..

    PB blaster and AT fluid 50/50 mix and let it set. Ive freed two engines this way so maybe it will bust a breech plug.

    STOP - Get a new extractor. The more damage you do to the slot in that breech plug the tougher it will be to remove.


    When there is enough damage to the breech plug (or rust in the threads) you may end up having to have the part drilled out like a broken off bolt. When you reach the point of spending money to fix the problem its time time to look at the condition of the barrel. Is the rifling rusted and pitted as well? Are you throwing good money after bad?

    Hardships are quickly forgotten. Intense heat, bitter cold, rain and snow, fatigue, and luckless hunting fade quickly into memories of great fellowship, thoughts of beautiful country, pleasant camps, and happy campfires.

    take it to a gunsmith before you do any more damage to it.

    ID Hunter,
    My brother in law had the same problem with his CVA Wolf. I agree with some of the previous posts. I do think you can free it yourself with the soaking process with water or solvents. Lightly tapping the extractor tool with a hammer as Fuzzyface said will act as an "impact wrench" effect for lack of better terms. I've had success with that method before.

    Caution! Not sure what model you have but my brother in law's Wolf had a breech plug that allowed him to use a ratchet and socket. He didn't soak his prior to trying to free it. He placed his in a vice, holding it by the tang on the bottom of the barrel. He was able to get a lot of leverage by doing so. When he put the hurt on that ratchet, he broke the weld that held the tang to the barrel. Yeah, broke the weld! Total waste at that point. Soak it well for a long time before applying any torque with any tool of any kind. It will come out
