Default Live round stuck in a 1911

So, for various reasons, and due to my overwhelming stupidity, I have a live round chambered and jammed in my 1911, at my house.

I have tried to pull the slide back with huge amounts of force, but the round will not release.

I was about to bang it on a block of wood, but then my better judgement FINALLY kicked in, and I realized I was an idiot.

So here is my dillema - I can't legally drive the loaded gun to the range or a gunsmith to fire it, and I can't discharge it (i'm within city limits).

Option 1: I could call the police, and explain the situation, and see if they can somehow take care of it.
Option 2: I could just dig a hole and bury it in the backyard, and get a new 1911.
Option 3: Take it to the range discreetly???
Option 4: Bang it on a block of wood and pray?
Option 5: Score! I have a new permanently loaded home defense gun.
Option 6: Apply for CCW and wait? Is this good cause?

What do the wise people of calguns advise? Any other options i'm not thinking of?

Can you take the slide off the frame?

First option

First remove the magazine. Attempt to then remove the slide.


Second option

For this other option start with engaging the safety.

The other option is to push the plunger into the gun, releasing the spring tension. Rotate the bushing since the plunger is no longer engaged. This will remove an area of tension.

No, to take the slide off you need to pull it back to the disassembly point so that you can remove the pin.

I could cut the pin off, but that would be a shame

When I am trying to pull the slide back, i am turning the safety off.

I could go take pics, but it basically looks like an ordinary 1911, ready to fire.

The round wasn't sized properly, so thats why it jammed up.

I hope some of your suggestions are jokes, they are funny! If your slid is really jammed and you fire it, it may or may not be a kaboom, considering the slide may or may not be in full battery.

Where are you located?
least risk option would be to punch out the mainspring housing pin, then the guts (sear and spring, disconnector, hammer, then take off the firing pin stop and drop out the firing pin...) Do you have a full length guide rod? If not, at this point you can try to smack the slide at the guide rod and try to unlock the breech...
With a full length guide rod, you're in a little tougher situation...

Another remove the frame. Had a buddy with his grandfather's old 1911 that was jammed loaded, with a little bit of muscle the slide popped off.

If the slide is stuck and you were able to fire the round inside, would that cause boom or damage to the pistol? Im no 1911 expert but just a though. Hope you get it out with no damage to the pistol!

I had a similar thing happen to me. But my round had already been fired just no powder in the reload so the primer just had enough power to push the bullet into the rifling but not clear the shell casing. Ended up placing the muzzle on a block of wood on my reload bench and smacking the frame (grip) with a rubber malate, it worked. You most likly will not have to hit it very hard and the worse thing that will happen is a neg. discharge putting a hole in your work bench. But I really doubt that will happen if your 1911 has a firing pin safety.

I am worried that if I hammer it, the trigger would go off. It has a very light trigger.

Don't allow anything to rush the situation. Take it slow and post some pics for the experienced members here. Safety trumps the value of the gun and anyone who could be injured including your self.

Wrap some tape around the hammer or put a cushion of some kind in between the hammer and the slide to prevent discharge if the hammer drops for some reason.

Dont forget your gun has a grip safety and possible a firing pin safety. If niether of these safety's are de-activated it should not fire.

But we do not know your gun, condition safety's etc.

I would not go anywhere near the trigger but securing your hammer with duck tape to your beavertail is a very good idea this should keep the hammer from falling and not allow the grip safety to be de-activated.

to make the gun safe from firing,
1. put safety on
2. push the main spring housing pin out and remove mainspring housing. now the hammer won't work.
3. Remove grip panels,
4. remove frame safety, hammer assembly. now it's safe. if you have a series 80, firing pin block will stop the firing pin from moving forward or cause slam fire.

first off, write every political leader you can think of asking for the ban of these dangerous weapons which refuse to unload without being shot. obviously they were made with the sole purpose of taking a life, and will not be put to rest without tasting blood.

Then, make sure there are no children around for the gun to sneak up on and kill. Keep an eye on it because guns have been scientifically proven to favor killing innocent children and family members.

after that, put a trigger lock on it, lock it in a safe, put the safe in another safe, buy some insurance on the gun and the safes, destroy all the keys for the lock and safes, and board your house up like an abandoned property. that is the only safe way to store a gun.

then call the police and have them bring a bomb squad. your house will need to be completely surrounded by police officers on overtime with 24 hour coverage while you wait for them to clear out the neighborhood for 6 blocks in all directions. obviously at least 2 helicopters will be needed.

fianlly, if you can find someone brave enough to be in the same room as the gun, make sure they are a qualified gunsmith who can try to talk to the gun and keep it calm while the bomb squad loads it into a steel lined brick container and brings it outside. (If SWAT isn't on standby, people WILL lose their lives!) Have the bomb squad cover the gun in thermite and light it. the gun will be melted down safely and will never be able to kill anyone!!!

after that's done, dedicate all your time through the next election to campaigning for stricter regulation of guns and enhanced safety measures to keep them from going on murderous rampages. Make sure to have all handguns listed as destructive devices and covered by a federal assault weapons ban that will remain in effect for ever.

the children will thank you...

At least wire or duct tape hammer so it cannot strike the firing pin.

BTW, I wouldn't fire the gun if I were you. It could very well be obstructions causing the cartridge to be jammed up in the chamber. you'd blow it up if you fire it.

There is no way to remove the ejector and firing pin safely. to do that you'd need to remove the firing pin stop plate. To remove the firing pin stop, you'd need to push the firing pin in towards the live primer. Get the picture?

I have had this happen due to a case with an out of spec rim that wedged in the extractor claw.

Grasp the slide tightly with one hand, grasp the grip with all fingers below the trigger guard. Point in a safe direction, and push forward smartly with the grip hand. You may have to do it more than once. Don't be afraid to use a lot of force. It should eject if you work at it.

ETA: Also make sure you get the slide all the way into battery before you try to eject the case. The case needs to be passed through the extractor claw, and getting it all the way into battery is the first half of the exercise.

As others have mentioned, I would secure the hammer by wiring it up, zipties, tape a wedge of wood between the hammer and slide, etc. Then punch the mains spring housing out so the hammer is no longer under tension. Then I would hold the front edge of the slide or bushing on the corner of a bench, and apply forward pressure on the frame. Perhaps a wood dowel or screwdriver through the triggerguard and push down.

NO! Do not push the slide into full battery position. Doing so will shove the offending round deeper into chamber making it harder to remove.

Usually advice doing this clearing procedure at the range. Since it will take a little help disassembling the firing mechanism and if you feel you can do this safely at home then here it is. Under no circumstances I'm taking any responsibility in the event you have an ND or AD.

First remove magazine from gun if there is one. Bt pointing the gun towards a safe direction holding gun strong hand only finger off trigger. Place non shooting hand over slide hold the slide firmly and with the web and palm of shooting hand thrust forward around the grip safety area giving it a bit of impact. If that doesn't clear it then go to next method.
Got this from THR and will save plenty of time typing w/ my IPhone.

Depress the front Bushing 'Button', rotate and remove the Bushing and Spring...Keep finger away from Trigger...one hand hold the Pistol with thumb on the grip safety, and, fingers on top the slide pulling back, and, with non marring tool, hit the front of the Slide 'back'...should disengage, free up, eject.

Swollen Cartridge, or debris or Lead on the Cartridge lip can cause a jam of this sort...the extractor is holding the Slide where it is, Slide is unable to chamber the round, unable to to eject...round stuck partially chambered.

Dowel Rod may work also, through the Barrel, for tapping the stuck round 'back'...light taps...should do it.

squirt some WD40 down the bore to loosen up the round and try push the slide open again.

A friend of mine was shooting some out of spec (Glock brass) reloaded ammo thru my Beretta last week and lock the gun up just like yours did. What ammo is yours?

One more thing to try:
1. Put your right thumb under the beavetail and wrap your fingers over the top of the slide.

2. Put your left thumb in the front of the trigger guard and wrap your fingers over the top of the slide.

3. Close your hands (squeeze) at the same time quickly and as hard as you can.

Squirt ALOT of WD40 down the barrel and in the back of the chamber (like a whole can) and let it soak. This should kill the primer. Secure the hammer with duct tape or a zip tie and it SHOULD be safe to transport to a gunsmith (in a locked container).

Ok, the gun is cleared. Thanks everyone for all the quick help.

I ended up using a couple of zip ties to prevent the hammer from dropping, and removed the mainspring. At that point I removed the recoil spring, and then held the gun upwards, and pulled back on the slide while wacking it with a rubber mallet.

It gave, and the round popped out.

After putting the round in the loose chamber afterwards, the bullet was not far enough in. I will have to consult with the reloading gurus, because I am not doing something properly.

Also, I don't think the round had chambered properly, and it would have been a mistake to fire it.

Now I just need to figure out how to put everything back together.

it would only kill the primer if it could reach the primer from the inside. Squirting wd40 on metal (the exposed part of the primer in a finished cartridge) would just clean and lube it.

Now I just need to figure out how to put everything back together.
Glad to hear its (and you) clear and safe.

Are you remembering to crimp your brass after seating the bullet? Maybe your depth setting isnít deep enough. I canít imagine why your round didnít make it into battery successfully, but maybe some pictures would help.

What kind of RL setup are you running? Brass, Bullets, etc...

Whew, glad you got it cleared safely.

But more importantly, let's hope you got it done before your wife came home.
