I have a squib load just inside the barrel of a hipoint 9mm carbine. Any helpful suggestions on how to remove it would be welcome. Local gunsmith in Baton Rouge wants $65 to remove it.

Have you tried it yourself? I would say get a 1/4" brass dowel rod a couple inches longer than your barrel and try to bang it out yourself. Brass wont damage to rifling and woods too soft to be up to the task. I would also put some oil around the bullet. I have not removed a squib before but i googled and this method came up.

That's what I would like to try. Where can I find a brass rod about 18" long?

Local hardware store like ace hardware home depot or lowes.

A wooden dowel well work also.
Also helps if you spray the barrel down with WD-40 before trying to remove.

I just removed a squib from my G19 barrel with a wooden dowel. It worked well. I just used a dowel that was as close to the diameter of the barrel as possible. I just pounded it with a hammer.

Wood should work fine. It is what most people use. If you can try to find a hardwood dowel.

I carry a 15 inch brass dowel (9MM) in my range bag for just that issue. Never had to use it, so far. It will do any of my guns.

I've tried the hardwood dowels and brass rod. Sprayed Kroil and WD 40. No luck so far.

Bigger hammer?

Bigger hammer?

And hit harder.

Took it apart according to the dissassembly instructions. Finally had to drill out the fmj bullet. May have dinged the barrel just a tad. Put it back together and will shoot it soon.

Primed case.

3.0 grains Bullseye powder in case.

Cotton wadding pressed into case to prevent powder from spilling

Insert case in chamber.

Close bolt carefully, without spilling powder.

Aim gun at target.

Pull trigger.

Make hole in target with squib bullet.

Resume normal operations.

W.E.G. Great idea. I'll give that a try if it happens again.
Thanks.
