update on round stuck in original 1873

Recommended Posts

I did what was suggested and lifted the extractor and got the round free and got it out.  Prior to posting I had tried to do it myself and had disassembled one side.  I would take out each piece so I could put it together later.  I had a piece fall out, it retains the firing pin.  I didn't see where it came from so I took it to a buddy who is a gunsmith.  he got it back together and looked it over and said all is well.  maybe I can sell it.

Why sell it??? Was the fault with the rifle or a defective cartridge? Dealing with stuff like this is half the fun of playing around with a 150 year-old design.

It was a round that had not been seated right at the factory.   I mainly want to sell it because I am getting older and diabetic and I doubt my family would know what to do with it.   I also would put the funds into the farm
