Default Broken Shell in chamber

I have an antique GEW 88 that I have found to have a very old broken brass casing perfectly lodged in the chamber, and very much completely taking up the ebtire area jusr forward of the barrel.
It is so fused in there that I was not aware of it until I tried chambering a round to find that the brass would only enter part way. What is the best way to remove this old brass fragment from the chamber.

You can buy broken shell extractors to fit the 7.92x57. I'd recommend you spray Kroil or some other penetrating oil in it and let it soak for a couple days before trying to use the broken shell extractor.

+1000 on the Kroil. Let it soak a day or more. When ready to use the broken shell extractor, use a blow dyer, heat the OUTSIDE of the chamber area for 2-3 minutes (metal expands, may give you some separation between brass and chamber)
