OK folks. this isn't directly related to Thompsons, but here goes. I have an antique .32 auto pistol that ruptured a case leaving the bullet lodged in the barrel. I need advise on how to remove it without damaging the barrel. On top of that the barrel bushing is stuck to the barrel, making it impossible to remove the slide. MAB Model D. Any suggestions are appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance, Karl

Narrow-flute exact bore-size long drill bit. Worst case scenario if it's super-stuck.

 

Lots of grease, go very slowly.  Phil
