Model 41 Barrel Stuck

Post by Soupy44 on Mon Jul 30, 2018 6:13 pm

So I just purchased a Clark Barrel so I could start shooting with a dot. It went in nicely, has shot even better, but now it feels like it's glued in. I still need to switch to my iron sights barrel for EIC matches, hence my problem. Any ideas to get it apart? I don't have a 22 EIC match for a few months, so no big rush.

Thanks!!!

Slide back, pull trigger guard down, remove barrel. Maybe you just need to use more force ?

Clark M41 barrels are not always drop in's. Some minor peening may be needed. This was per the late Jim Clark, Jr.

or 

a little wiggle, little jiggle and hold your mouth just right, 


I was taught early on that if it did not go together, or in your case come apart, as it should to put it down and walk away, 
revisit it later and things usually do as they are supposed to

A logical explanation is that powder residue has found a path between the barrel and the frame and is acting as a retaining compound.  Hoppe's No. 9 is a good powder solvent and has some lubricating properties.  Some Hoppe's powder solvent might act like penetrating oil and reduce the resistance between the barrel and frame.

Barrel fit varies.  I have a 1959ish 41 and a 1977ish 41.  The 1959 barrels will not even go on the 1977 frame, but the 1977 barrel does fit on the 1959 frame.

I purchased a Clark barrel a few years ago, and had to send the receiver to them to get it fit.  There was no charge for the fitting, just postage there and I think they paid for return.  Good luck.

If you don't have it yet then try turning the pistol upside down with the barrel pointed up at about a 45 degree angle. Now you can see a narrow slot under the trigger that you can get oil into (side towards grip). At that angle the oil will run onto the release mechanism and should free that part. A good penetrating oil like Kroil or G96 should free it up pretty quickly. But keep the pistol in that position for a while.

my SW41 is the same way with the origional barrel. It does not just fall out after lowering the trigger guard. I have to use some force and wiggle it around a bit.
