    Trouble pulling empty case out of Rossi single shot 357

    Iíve just recently bought a second hand single shot Rossi .357. It shoots not too bad and is a good gun for what I am after. But itís a pain in the Bum to pull the cases out after firing! The wee spring pulls it out a little bit but then I need to use pliers or the back of a knife to be able to pull the empty case out. Has anybody got any idea what this might be? Thanks

    Try polishing the chamber. Might be a tad crusty in there and the added friction is enough to over-ride the extractor. A 410 copper brush should work ok
    Be more involved and less impressed.

    Yes, polish the chamber. Could be from previous owner firing .38 specials and not cleaning properly afterwards, leaving a ring of fouling.

    also carry a small piece of metal rod with you...the guts of those double ended screwdrivers in the car kit that never get used are ideal...drop it down barrel onto stuck case and it will pop it right out..... put your cleaning brush in cordless drill and polish up that chamber and see how it goes then....

    For the same reason, limit (best avoid) shooting 38Spec through 357mag lever actions. Lead projectiles are the worst.

    You shouldnt be putting the cases in your bum after firing ......just put them in your pocket

    Thanks for the advice everybody. I scrubbed the chamber with solvent and let it sit for a few hours. Then I put a copper brush in the drill and got into it for 10 minutes. It did make it a little bit better but still too hard to pull out with fingers. I’m soaking the chamber in solvent again and will give it another good go with the drill tonight, will see what happens then

    Dont get too vigorous or you will over-size the chamber

    I've seen it quite a bit in the Rossi Pomba's in .410, not sure if it was the same problem every time but at least a couple of times it was friction between the ejector and the slot it sits in, you could try looking over the ejector/extractor for burrs on the outside of it, or shiny areas might show where its rubbing on debris or a burr inside the extractor slot.

    This goes for everything but it seemed more so with fire arms . If you have a firearm that is malfunctioning ,be aware that it did once work so the likelyhood of it needing bits filed off or re shaped are slim , burrs excepted . When diagnosing faults with your gun try to follow the whole process (loading ,cocking ,firing and extraction ) from start to finish rather than just concerntrating on the stage that is malfunctioning as often its the step before the malfunction , ie , if you are having trouble with a rimfire that is munching the bullet tips ....dont be "reprofiling " the feed ramp but do check the mag is clean inside 1st . .....sorta thing . As others have said give the chamber a good clean and then have a good look at it and if it looks ok move on to (as suggested above ) checking extractor / spring . So obvious but it tripped me up ......make sure the ammo is clean ,I was having sticky extraction issues on my 22-250 ai , walked out of status feeling stupid when Nelson told me my sticky extraction was coz my cases were sticky ......bit of Ĺ dried case lube . I dunno , but if someone fired a lot of 38 rounds ....is it possible there is a bit of erosion in the chamber wall instead of at the actual throat /leade ?

    My mate has the same problem with his 270 and 7mm08 barrels for his rossi wizard, the case is stuck and then the extractor pops over the rim when you open it and you have to knock it out with a cleaning rod. we have cleaned everything, adjusted the extractor to the max, polished the chamber but no luck.

    Wahla! Twenty minutes of copper brush and you'll have a 44 magnum.

    Overly vigorous use of a brush on a drill has been known to make extraction worse by creating "micro grooves" that provide extra friction making the case harder to remove.
    As to the 270 and 7mm. Rimless cases are always more likely to encounter trouble in a break action due to their rim size.
