Huntsman .45 cal, 1972 breech plug issue, I need help
Hi, I have a 1972 AJ serial # Huntsman .45 cal. which I found in a Pawn shop for a cheap price. It has a load in it which I have soaked with Kroil. The #11 nipple came out easily but the breech plug is too tight to come out using needle nose pliers and crescent wrench. Obviously, I don't have the proper tool. I have thought about heating the barrel at the breech end with a heat gun, hopefully expanding the breech enough so that I can get the plug to turn. Any thoughts? Would this be safe to do?
Does anyone know where I could find the proper tool? I have struck out at the two main auction sites.
