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)


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.
