Unscrew the ejector star and slide the cylinder off. The star has left hand threads.
Cylinder on my Raging Bull is extremely hard to turn. Probably dirty.
I removed the whole thing with the yoke attached, and soaked it in Hoppe's for a day. Helped just a little bit,
Shot the gun several times since then, and it's getting really bad again. Took the whole thing out, and have it soaking again, but what I would like to do, is remove the cylinder completely, so that I can clean it thoroughly.
Can someone explain how, in simple easy to understand language. Thanks.
I've unscrewed the ejector rod, but it didn't do anything. So, what you're saying is to do it from the star end?
After unscrewing the extractor rod, you can use the same rod to push out the extractor. It should push out very easily unless it is buggered up with dirt or something.
After that, look at pics 8, 9, and 10 in this thread. Taurus Revolver Disassembly - Pictorial Guide
If the Raging Bull is like the 85, the cylinder is held on with a bushing that "snaps" over the cylinder shaft on the yoke.
Didn't have to do it after all. On the last "soak", I put an empty 9mm case under the star to hold it open, and let the juice get in there better.
Took it out this morning, and it spins like a brand new gun again.
