Revolver lock up

Recommended Posts

Well, after thousands of rounds, my sons .44 Magnum Blackhawk finally had a squib round go off. The big problem is it is lodged between the barrel and the cylinder, locking up the cylinder. To add to the misery, there are loaded rounds still in the cylinder.

 

How does one safely get the bullet out of the barrel?  I wanted to get some expert opinions before proceeding. If the barrel needs to be unscrewed to get this done right, off to the gunsmith it goes.

Thanks for the info. Tap time to get it running again. I was worried about the live rounds still in the cylinder.
