We had an open frame roof structure overhead. Used a T-handled rod with the worm, got the worm threaded into the ball, hooked the T-handle on a beam, and tap-tap'd the rod out. Took quite a bit of force (patched ball, rifled barrel). Really didn't want to mar the beautiful stock!

The breech does usually come off, but not easily. Last resort...

Thats a fact! Helps if the builder or factory used a little anti-seize.


Trouble? Simple. Don't start none, won't be none.

Anti-seize - No workshop should be without. All metal-to-metal threads get it at my shop.

On some of the machines I worked on at IBM there were steel screws threaded in aluminum. My co-workers, one of whom may be the next one to have to take it apart, would beat someone with a stick for not using it.
I'd be surprised to hear of a barrel factory using it.
I'd be shocked to hear of a builder who doesn't.

A few years back, I designed a mounting arm for a sonar transducer for our environmental sciences group. Built all from aluminum, and using stainless bolts with nylock nuts....

Just the act of hand-screwing the nylock nuts onto the stainless bolts caused one to sieze so hard that I sheared the bolt trying to unthread it. I introduced the environmental sciences group to anti-seize as a result.

Yup, a desk dweller's pale fingers were enough to seize the nylock onto the bolt! 3/8" bolt, IIRC.

WOW! If that was a from someone I didn't know I would not believe it. I would not doubt your credibility, that is really something.
