Re: Rifle that will not fire ????
The nipple I called out before was NOT used in the gun as the threads are wrong. The nipple that came with the gun has a hole that is 0.039 inches. I found it loose buried in his "kit" of stuff. I did find I had some #11M caps but my friend was using #10's.
I looked at the American Pioneer Powder web site and they do not directly say to not use the sticks in a side lock so I sent them an email asking them about that. I will freely admit that not using Sticks in a side lock makes a lot of sense to me but I want to determine exactly why this gun won't shoot, not just "shotgun" it by changing everything.
Thanks for all the comments so far. I learned a lot!
