First thing is make the gun "safe".

With the safety on and the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, remove the trigger group.

After that I don't know.

I had a new 51 in the late 70's. I never did figure out how to keep it working. After it spit out the 2nd bolt handle, I drilled a hole in the third and attached a piece of nylon cord and tied it to the rib.

If the gun can't be fired I would take out the trigger in the safest manner possible if I could. Then a good sized dowel down the barrel with steady pressure should do the trick.

If it was an 1100 I would have better info.

If you are in doubt at all see a gunsmith.

By all means remove the trigger and then work on it ... They are problematic to the point I actually gave one away by letting it in the gun rack as we left the club one dark and gloomy night ... I bought it for my wife and it was nothing but trouble to the point she didn't want to shoot anymore ... I gave her a Model 12, no more problem but she don't shoot anymore any way ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

Do as one person said above but put the rod down the barrel and keep your hands and face away from the end. Take a hammer and hit the rod with the barrel as it is pointed away from you. That should loosen the shell.

I would kill the shell with a good shot of Kroil or some other lubricating oil on the primer for a few days before I did anything with it. JMHO

Just take it out in the backyard(if you can where you live),and shoot it.That will take care of the live shell in the chamber.Just a thought.

An Ithaca 51, eh?

I know you won't like hearing this but, in the long run, you'll save money by tossing it off a bridge. Just make sure there is a river below and not a railroad train (crew).......

(I'm serious.)
