Barrel plugged
 
Springfield arms 1911 at the range. Pulled the trigger and a minor pop. Looked like sawdust when I ejected the shell because it didn't have enough kick to cycle another into place thank god.
So any advise on getting the bullet out????

You don't have a squib rod in your range bag?

Get one!

Or use an old cleaning rod (but be careful of the barrel crown).

A 3/8" hard wood dowel from the front (and tapped on lightly with a 8 poumd maul would take care of it).

I have yet to have that happen; i hope i don't crap myself. I did have a bad cap on a cap-n-ball revolver once, not cool.

"A 3/8" hard wood dowel from the front" is a good idea. or a 3/8" brass rod. Try to use as close to bore size as possible. Should have a square cut end(not rounded).

I had some 9mm's that made my FEG-90 act like a cap and ball.
Aim, squeeze trigger, hear a click, silence, hear a bang, slide came back and loaded another. Then the cycle continued.

CourtJester, I am glad you did not ignore that trouble sign. It saved your firearm and possibly some of your skin.

Be safe.

This is after the second shot. An my fire arms are broken down and cleaned after every trip to the range.

If it looks like this just use a pair of pliers! http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...psa56b63d0.gif

Should I have any concern of barrel damage?

Clean it out real good. If it didnt have enough pressure to push it out you should be fine, as long as you didnt scar it up trying to get it out. What did you use?
