Hello, people I have this problem with gas cartridge loaded wrong way. Any advise on how to remove it without detonation would be accepted. :)

Personally, I wouldn't attempt to do anything with that myself. Take it to a gunsmith, they have the appropriate tools and the knowledge to work on it.

Robo checking in. It looks like a tear gas cartridge in a Walther PPK clone pistol. The "crack" is the relief cut for the extractor and as such not a problem.

Advise for removing. Obtain a wooden dowel "slightly" smaller than the bore diameter. Insure the face of the dowel is at least flat or slightly recessed (cupped). WEAR SAFETY GLASSES, IN CASE OF AN OOPS!!! Insert the dowel into the muzzle until it contacts the round. Tap lightly until dislodged.

Just what I was thinking, but I'm no gunsmith.

I was also thinking a drop of light oil around the cartridge and place vertical to let the oil seep down around the cartridge base. Then the dowel and the tapping.

But again I'm not the gunsmith around here.

DRATS! Beat to the punch by robo again!
NGIB sent up the Robo signal and I responded. I violated the 7:00 thread killer rule, but NGIB turned on the search beacon. I was duty bound to respond and intervene. Sorry Bear if I spoiled your fun:cool:

Thank You all for advises! Guess I'll just take it to gunsmith so he would take care of this.
Well, this was totally pointless & stupid... You ask for advice then you then go to a gunsmith anyway? Robo (and others) had the solution nailed to the letter and you just sluff it off... GET OUT OF HERE!

I certainly hope this is your last post.

Have you tried using a small pic in the extractor slot to see if you can grab the case? Do you have a gas mask?
