HiWall Rimfire

For those of you who might be shooting a HiWall Rimfire as I do. Or something similar too where getting the empty case back out might be abit difficult to remove. Below is a tool that I use that simplify's that process quite abit, it is spring loaded and also very easy to use. This one was under 10.00, it is Stainless Steel, has plenty of spring pressure and it is actually a very well made tool for the price and for my own particular use.

Just search Amazon for "claw tweezers".

Yes Amazon is where I purchased mine and also look for free shipping, it being SS and the comments to make sure you are getting the same one. I went to go look for my order and Item# and I must have miss-placed it and its no longer noted in my past purchases on Amazon's web site? I also remember it being listed under Jewelers spring loaded claw tweezers or something to that affect and it did have to do with Jewelers tools.

That is a tool that jeweler's use to pick up and handle faceted stones. My father used one a lot.

That's great idea!!   

I use a small open end wrench the just fits over the spent case.  A quick flick of the wrist and the case is gone.

The tool is also good for loading as it is not easy to load .22 shorts in a highball.

I made something similar to a percussion cap tool for a friend that worked well for loading and unloading. Has a cut like the wrench mentioned but a spring finger in rear to apply pressure across on the back flat of case to hold it tight.

Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

I've had two High Walls in .22LR and the first was a Buhmiller built sporter with the right side wall cut down to allow easy access to the chamber. A great way to improve chambering, but it always bothered me to look at the relieved side on the receiver. Gun had gorgeous wood, and was extremely well built, with the Buhmiller barrel it shot well too. I finally traded it for a Stevens 44 in .22LR.
The 2nd was an oriignal High Wall with #4 weight 30" barrel in .22LR and single set trigger. No rear sight dovetail, and was set up for scope. Had a 20x Lyman scope on it, which made cartridge feeding and removal even tougher! I always shot it with a little pen knife on the bench to flip cases out, but chambering was as much trouble, and no tool to help.
The tweezers shown above would have made the whole process much easier, and I might still own the rifle if I'd seen something like them to help with my frustration level then!

I'm sure we've all seen that mechanism on a longer cable for picking up small parts we in-evidently drop while working on our cars. Never saw such a small one!

I've had one in my model-airplane-building shop for many years.  Never occurred to me to use it for coping with loading/unloading a .22 single shot.   

I have a little "fork" tool I use to pull cases from a Hopkins & Allen 932 that I modded to shoot centerfire. (H&A never had good extractors, and the mod made it worse.)  This might do better.

One of my Ballard .22s is a PITA to load because the cartridge rim slips behind the extractor so easily.  Using the claw tweezer may help.    Thanks for the idea.   Smiley

Usually a Ballard factory original .22 has the two piece extractor that's very positive if it's not worn out, and works well. But I've owned a number of Ballard centerfire rifles converted to .22RF and using the one piece CF extractor for the .22 case. They often have issues with the rims slipping past the one piece extractor because it travels in an arc and not straight  back like the two piece.
