To Unload Or Eject Cartridge Cases

Keep revolver pointed in a safe direction! Do not attempt to unload when the hammer is cocked.

If the hammer is cocked, it must first be decocked. (See "To Uncock The Revolver", p. 11)

Then:

1. Open the gate. This permits the cylinder to rotate.

2. Turn cylinder clockwise, by hand, to align a chamber with the ejector rod.

3. Push the ejector rod rearward, by means of the thumb-piece on its forward end, so that it slides through the chamber to push out the cartridge or fired case. Release spring-loaded ejector rod. Repeat until all chambers are empty.

4. Check to be certain that all cartridges have been removed, then close the gate.
