Nipple rusted in
 
I have a cva hawkins that I just got out of storage after many many years, and realized I left the nipple left in, and now I cannot get it out. Any ideas??

What have you tried so far? WD-40?

Try electrical contact cleaner. It will make it cold and when it warms might break loose. You minght try heting it with one of those hand held torches heat it up then let it cool. Either way is how we loosen rusted bolts and plugs.

Take it to a gunsmith and have it fixed right before something else gets messed up.

I agree with wmi, If WD-40 doesn't work,, let a professional gunsmith do it.

WD-40, gun oil, WD-40 and gun oil again
