From the looks of that barrel it's cracked and you shouldn't try to do anything more with that firearm until you have a gunsmith take a look at it.

Personally, I wouldn't attempt to do anything with that myself. Take it to a gunsmith, they have the appropriate tools and the knowledge to work on it.

Robo checking in. It looks like a tear gas cartridge in a Walther PPK clone pistol. The "crack" is the relief cut for the extractor and as such not a problem.

Advise for removing. Obtain a wooden dowel "slightly" smaller than the bore diameter. Insure the face of the dowel is at least flat or slightly recessed (cupped). WEAR SAFETY GLASSES, IN CASE OF AN OOPS!!! Insert the dowel into the muzzle until it contacts the round. Tap lightly until dislodged.

Just what I was thinking, but I'm no gunsmith.

I was also thinking a drop of light oil around the cartridge and place vertical to let the oil seep down around the cartridge base. Then the dowel and the tapping.

But again I'm not the gunsmith around here.
