Trying to refinish this Colt revolver. I need a gunsmith near Chesapeake that is willing to get the cylinder separated from the yolk and extraction rod. I will pay.

Just unscrew it yourself, very simple and I believe left hand threads on the ejector.

Nope, right hand, and I cannot get the threads unstuck. The ejection rod is bending and warping under the torsion stress. I do not want to cause damage.

I second the home made Ed's Red solution: 50/50 ATF/Acetone. I have used that to penetrate and break free several things with the least amount of effort. You will not be disappointed.
