    The 32/20 inserted easily into the Nagant cylinder, and rotated around to the barrel, but lacked about 1/16 " or so to chamber.
    I could disassemble the cylinder assembly, starting with the screw over cylinder rod holder, to remove the rod then the cylinder, but I am really antsy about difficult reassembly !
    Or, I could chip off ends of the lead bullet, with some sturdy toenail pliers, but afraid of pieces clogging functioning parts.
    What to do ?
    Have any of you guys any suggestions, please ? !!! :confused: o_O

    Thanks .

    It appears you need to change your username. Then bring the gun in to a gunsmith.

    Thanks, but not helpful. I plan to do one of the above, unless someone has a better fix.
    Merry Christmas!

    That happened to me when a bullet jumped the crimp. Simply use wooden dowel to tap bullet further into case until it clears. If you can't manage that safely then take it to a smith.

    Can you show a photo of its existing state?

    What is the composition of the bullet itself?
    Is it only lead getting in the way?

    I'd slowly carve it off with a good thin knife if I didn't want to disassemble.

    Lead. Plan on chipping it until it clears.

    You might get to the point where you want to do something like this. Pivoting the back-sir of the blade on the frame.

    I can't quite picture a Nagant and its inherent complexities just now but it might help for the last bits of projectile.

    I like to use Swiss Army Knives for this sort of thing for their strength and thinness.

    Todd.

    Just pull the cylinder out of the nagant takes no tools. Then find the correct ammo.

    Pretty easy to get cylinder out then remove cartridge.
