A bit like those "Gourmet kitchen blowtorches".
I'll get a pic & post it.

Here you go, Sam.

The silver-colored Co2 cart goes inside the black thing. When you get a dryball or load you want to clear without firing the thing is pressed into the un-capped nipple & the trigger pulled on the unit. It releases a "shot" of Co2 popping the charge, ball patch & charge out the muzzle fairly firmly, but less aggressively than firing it.

Thanks for posting that photo. I have first-hand experience with one. Many years ago I was deer hunting on an experimental hunt on State land. I took a shot, missed, and was reloading when I broke my ramrod. {:( {_K  I was walking back to my car and ran into another hunter. Long story short, he had a CO2 discharger in his truck and I was able to continue hunting. This guy turned out to become a good friend to this day. I bought one like it and have it in my range box, set up for flint lock touch hole.

I have several of those. My set up also allows a screw-on flex hose to which basketball needles can be attached.  I find I use them mostly to blow up balls and suchlike toys for the kids.  Doesn't take much to get those things tight.  But I'm ready for a stuck load.

Bought the exact same thing over at Dixie Gun Works! Get ready to order this (http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-16-gram-Threaded-CO2-Cartridges-Redrock-2-boxes-of-10-each-/350833399155) - (WAAAY cheaper than you're going to find anywhere else). Kinda handy (no fuss, some muss tho - blows powder ta heck an gone but does get the ball, wad and powder out without much effort).

Classanr,
            I am  :-[ to say I have dry balled 3 times in my long guns. Two of the 3 times
I used the CO2 discharger without any problems removing to R/B. The third I had to use
my screw/ramrod extraction way. If had a powder charge and PRB I would just fire it.
I personally always will a CO2 discharger in my gun box. Course that just me :9)
