ok, I think I figured out where I was going wrong. The Breech plug. I thought that the breech plug was just the plastic piece but I now see that the metal portion of it is threaded into the barrel. I however cannot get it to unscrew. The best I've tried is using the plastic part to help attempt to turn it. The metal just doesnt seem to want to unscrew. I've tried some Kroil on it to help it along with no success. Any thoughts?

thanks again for the help!

That breechplug is threaded, and that does have to be removed- the bolt slides straight out of the back.

Suggest you let it Kroil soak in for a day, try again. It should unscrew with finger pressure. Most of my Mossys are older, and use acone shaped external breech plug, but they changed to the one with the tapered plastic tail on yours for looks.

If KROIL does not do the job, I am going to suggest another forum- rimfirecentral.com There is a Mossberg section, and one of the regulars there may have a 352K. Tell 'em C3 sent ya.

Yeah my breech plug doesnt look exactly like that. very close. The plastic part fits inside the metal part. The plastic just doesnt have enough grip to turn the metal. ive tried kroil on the outside, and also trying to hit it from the interior.

Ive tried a heat gun on both parts. no go. Ive tried a heat gun on the barrel and then cooled down the breech plug with a air duster can upside down. no go.

This may be a dumb thought, but are you turning it the right way? It may be reversed threads. Just a thought.
