    I just got a new 51 colt and the barrel wont come off of the cylinder pin. the thing is locked in place. So far I have tried soaking it in near boiling water and periodically trying to pull it off.:banghead: That didn't work so now I have it sitting in the freezer. (yes I disassembled it as far as i could, no handle, trigger, or hammer and correlating screws and springs.) any suggestions???

    Did you try to use the loading lever & plunger to push the frame off?

    You might try letting the gun (without wood) soak in oil overnight and then try.

    I don't know if this suggestion sounds stupid or not, but have you thought about putting a few rounds through it? (with the wedge in of course)

    I think that would lossed the barrel a bit...

    Position the Cylinder to be between Chambers...

    Use the Loading Lever then, to press it's end against the Cylinder, and, see, within reason, if this moves the Barrel off the Center Pin.

    remove the barrel wedge? seriously,you shouldn't put it the freezer,as that will cause the metal to contract, exacerbating your problem.rotate the cylinder so that the ''web'', not the bhole is under the rammer.Shim with a peice of beer can,so you won't mar the cylinder when you crank down on the loading lever as though you were loading the gun.This will push the barrel assembly off the arbor,or cylinder pin.If that doesn't work,soak in Liquid Wrench 1 day,and repeat.
