Wow. I was expecting it to be the other way around. If you could stand it up with the barrel pointing up, perhaps you could set it on a block of wood. Then take a pair of vice grips to the rod through the ejection port. Being very careful not to hit the rifle you could tap the vice grips with a hammer. I would not be surprized to find the barrel is already damaged. But who knows, you might get lucky.

I would think when you first got the wood stock it was still partialy in the chamber. Being larger than the bore it allowed the steel rod to move to one side and pass by the wood. Chances are you damaged the throat of the chamber. the only thing I can suggest now is to get a long BRASS rod and go through the muzzel and dislodge the metal rod. some bores are slightly larger at the breach end so once you get it moving it may get progressivly easier. If you do succeed removing it you'll have to have the bore scoped to assess the damage. Some lessons are easy and some are expensive. Hopefully you haven't had an expensive one. I know where there is a barrel of Mauser barreled receivers but I dont the cost of them.

That was my thought, I got a separate rod of weldable steel and pounded it down the muzzle. The wood/jammed rod is in there too well and no amount of pounding on the muzzle end will do it. Not even a small sledge could budge the thing. Will brass have more of an effect?

Rick, going to try your suggestion.

It sounds to me like 2 things-#1- the barrel (rifling) is badly damaged at this point, and #2- it's time to take it to your gunsmith.

Dry ice, some welding gloves........
Or, you could heat the metal rod with an oxy/acetylene torch until it burns the wood to the point where it comes free. Then you're back to the original problem, but you've made progress. Wrap the barrel in wet cloth to provide evaporative cooling and just heat the rod.
