HELP!!!

Shot flinter today to get ready for the season. 3 shots to be exact. After 2nd shot I ran a T17 2.5 inch pre-lubed patch down the barrel with the jag and no issues.

Went home, took the part apart for cleaning, used hot water and soap in the barrel with brush, pushed most of the residue out. No apparent issues up to this point

Took another T17 lubed patch and jag down the barrel, now its stuck at the bottom and i have tried everything from pliers, compressed air, hammer and cant get the sucker out.

What can I do other than trying to find a gunsmith or call Traditions?

Re: HELP!!!

Did you try to rethread it. It sounds like it came loose off the ramrod. Try rethreading it real slow.

Re: HELP!!!

Did you try using a ball puller or a worm to pull it out?

Re: HELP!!!

The jag is threaded onto the ramrod. I can try to get remove the ramrod and leave the jag in...but how would a patch puller remove a brass cleaning jag?

Re: HELP!!!

Able to get touch hole out? Trickle little powder in. Replace touch hole. Fire in safe direction.
Removed many jags and patches and other cleaning brushes no problem. (Only once on my own flinter)

Re: HELP!!!

Had this same problem with a TC last year. Took me 3 days of fidling around with it go get it out. As I recall, compressed air didnt work initially. Burning it out didnt work. I used a bent paper clip or piece of wire thru the touch hole with the liner removed to slowly work the patch forward as much as I could. Then compressed air did the job. Could also try pouring hoppes or some kind of solvent down the barrel and let it soak overnight. Might soften the patch a bit and then blow it out.

Re: HELP!!!

Oh, the whole ramrod is stuck?? Ive used a patch too big and got it all stuck halfway down the barrel. I put the ramrod ina benchtop vise and pulled on the gun. It came out.

I have seen this online on many forums, seems little dangerous?


Also I have seen people use Drano or rubbing alochol to soften/destroy the patch.


I think the real problem is the T17 patch is too big.
