Insert stuck in Frantom barrel

Is there anyway I can get the insert out? I tried everything...Its the stainless steel insert.

Thanks!

WD 40..let it sit, clean it with soapy water to remove the oil so you can get some decent finger grip action, and try and slide her out.

I would also maybe consider a wooden dowel or something of the like that fits loose in the tip of the barrel but is large enough to catch the insert.

Id try drenching in WD40 first, the other way might cost you the insert.

Put the barrel in the freezer for a little bit....

It may constrict the metal enough to get the insert out with out permanent damage..

well does AL contract faster than SS? If so, it would have the opposite effect...

Freeze it, and warm up the barrel with your hands, but try to leave the insert cold....

This is why I always put a very thin coat of Dow on the outisde of my inserts before putting them in.

I'd try running one of the fat rubber pull through squeegees through the barrel backwards after you use some WD-40.

I'd use a head gun to warm up the barrel.

I had to use pliers to pull it out. Didn't do that much harm after drenching it WD-40. Thanks guys.
