Default 27-2 ejector rod CW/CCW to unscrew?

Hey all, as the title reads, which direction unscrews the ejector rod on a 1980 27-2, CW or CCW?

Thanks!

it's a left hand thread. If you are going to tighten it, be sure to place EMPTY shell casings in the charging holes.

Sorry, I'm a dummy. To clarify, turn the cylinder CW to unscrew then, the opposite of normal?

Thank you! The reason I asked is because whomever last tightened it, must've gorrillia'd the thing on because, exerting what I consider normal pressure in either direction produces no results as far as loosening it. It's tight!

To loosen CLOCK-WISE, to the RIGHT, just like tightening a normal screw. Old bear is wrong, maybe didn't see you were trying to loosen it.

I have seen these so tight I had to clamp the extractor rod in my lathe chuck and grasp the cylinder with a piece of heavy leather and channel-lock pliers to remove the cylinder from the extractor rod. All an extractor rod wrench would do is slip and scar the extractor rod. I have no idea how anyone got it so tight as there was not any Loc-Tite on the threads, and there was no rust!

Missed that. I thought it was a general information question.
