I know this is of topic but im not sure what to do in this situation. I currently have a Jimenez Arms .380 auto. I have the option to trade it for a Taurus model 83 38 special. What do you think?

Can someone tell me how to remove the extractor from the cylinder of my Medusa. My extractor seems to have problems moving because if smithing stuck in it. I assume that there is some grit in there. I have the cylinder removed from the revolver, but I can't seem to unscrew the base pin.

Here's a neat graphic:



The only other revolver with a similar extractor is the German Korth.

Hey, finally theres another Medusa owner.....

Unfortunately, I cant help you, Ive never been able to take my cylinder apart either..... (I never had to yet..) Maybe you could try to flush out the extractor area with some aerosol Rem oil??

Perhaps Johnathan Phillips will be on and he can help you.... (he is the inventor of the Medusa and a member of the forum, but hes not on very often.)

Good Luck, and if you do learn how to take it apart, share it with us!

I already tried flushing the extractor out with WD-40, but no luck. I think that there are some bristles from a gun brush stuck in it. I cranked down counterclockwise on the knurled end of the extractor rod with a pair of pliers with no results. I was afraid I would break it. I didn't check if the extractor rod is reverse threaded. I would really like to fix this gun. I bought this gun new from Jonathan back in the day. I own a few dozen revolvers, smiths, colts and rugers and this is the most accurate by far. I would really like to get it fixed.
