After pulling out the wedge and placing the hammer in the loading position, use the loading lever and rammer as a tool to separate the barrel from the frame, having already rotated the cylinder so the rammer pushes on the cylinder face in between two chambers. before attempting any disassembly or before handling the revolver. This check is performed by carefully examining the rear of the cylinder at each chamber to be certain that there are no percussion caps on any of the nipples (#14). If percussion caps are present on the nipples then you should consider this a loaded firearm.

5 Peripheral disassembly: To disassemble the ejector assembly from the barrel, the ejector rod tube screw (#144) is removed from the left side of the barrel (#3).
