I've never experienced this problem myself, but maybe the rim came off of the case and is wedged between the extractor and the chamber, or something.

Post some pics, so we can see what's going on.

But in the mean time... and in betwixt beatings and cussings- I guess you've had it soaking with a good penetrant like Kroil or something?

That's just plumb weird.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

This would be a royal PITA, but maybe it's time to remove the barrel and see what's going on.

FINALLY GOT IT! Thanks guys, I left it soaking in PB Blast for a couple days. Put it back in the vise, and decided to try a crowbar- just the ticket. Was up all night, but its all good now. It had NEVER been cleaned! All kinds of laquer was in there!

You also had to hold your tongue in the right position, didn't you... Then it came open.

My M44 did this. I had to beat opened the bolt with a block of wood set on the bolt and hitting it with a hammer. I could not believe how stuck it was. It made me appreciate the Mosin even more, that extractor dug into the case a pulled it out.

I tried to allivate the problem, what I did was I took a 20 gauge brush. Put it on the end of a section of cleaning rod. Stuck that in a drill. Wrapped a patch round it soaked in Hoppes and ran it in the chamber moving back and forth. Then I Let is soak for a few minutes then put a clean patch in. Did that about 6 time to get all the crude out. Then I took a patch and put some J-B Bore Cleaning Compound on and polished the chamber with it. Then went back to Hoppes until the patches came out clean. Then a little oil. I have not shot it yet to see if it was still sticking but the chamber looks a lot better.

My big mistake was not buying M38 when they where $70

I took a 20 ga brush and hoppes to my chamber, too. Yeah, im wishin I'd gotten a 38 when they were cheap. But, I do well just checking the bargain and clearance and trade-in bins at pawn shops. Got a sweet m39 for cheap a while back. That things nice!
