|mcgiiver||The tapping with a rod works wonders, more so in the direction from breech towards the muzzle, to break the bonds of the matching threads. If you have a 3/8" square already cut in the plug, then I would suggest an impact tool, either the manual one which you hit with a hammer or an air/electric one. Pretty sure the manual one will work. Plenty of Kroil, obviously.|

I would not try heat, you may very well lock everything together even worse. With Kroil, or similar, in there, I would try alternately tapping the breech plug from the muzzle using a close bore fitting metal rod and brass cushion on the end, and a brass drift punch from the breech end. You have to tap a lot repeatedly and fairly hard, but not so hard as to mushroom the breech plug. A removal tool can also be made by using an appropriate sized 3/8" drive socket with the end ground away to form two close fitting pins. tedious work but can be effective.
How did your buddy cut a square hole in the plug?
If the breech plug is already destroyed, try using the repeated tapping and an Easy Out.

|Chainsaw||Don't know if this will help or not but recently purchased a similar problem child and was amazed at what Ballistol did to remove the BP and also clean the breech and barrel. Ballistol has worked wonders in black powder firearms. Though YMMV, Good Luck!|

|gene_225||It's on the internet, but I think it's also on this site. Look for both/either H&R Shikari and/or H&R Model 155 Shikari.|
