    Take a deep breath and calm down.
    The smith may not be familiar with ruptured casings and is a little lost.

    Believe me, I haven't seen one yet that couldn't be removed.

    If nothing else, spray real good with WD/40 or something like it, take a reamer or tap that's a little oversize and work with that. It WILL come out. Let us know.

        Odds are what he melted was cerrosafe, if used it correctly I have never seen it not remove a stuck casing. The best way I found to use it is to push a wet piece of paper towel down the bore to around an inch in front of the stuck casing. Melt the cerrosafe and pour it in from the chamber, the wet paper towel will stop it from traveling up the barrel. When hardened you can use a brass rod to drive the casing and cerrosafe out. Cerrosafe can be purchased from brownells.

          You need one of these items. A broken shell exractor.

              Gotcha on AK being up. Saw on another forum where you've fired 60 rounds with NO problem.

              Inquiring minds wanna know:
              1: What happened to cause problem?
              2: Exactly how did the smith fix it?
              3: Any damage at all?
              4: How hard was it for the smith to fix?
              5: Last-does the smith have any comments or suggestions?

              Thanks in advance and glad ya got it fixed.
