    Lyman Trade Rifle / GPR

    Musket nipple for Lyman Great Plains

    Changed both my GPR and Plains Pistol to them. Really helps putting them on with these old arthritic fingers, especially in the cold !! About the only benefit of using them. Wal-Mart had them on sale for $2.00 a hundred, should have enough for what`s left of my Lifetime !!

    set triggers on a lyman great plains

    Take the Lock out and see if it hangs up then. Might be the Lock screw is too tight, it just has to be snug.

    Check to see if the Screw, that holds the Lock in, isn`t too tight and drawing the Frizzen to close to the Barrel.

    The Wifey has double loaded when shooting Her CVA Hawken and guess who had the privilege to shoot it off !!! This was Woodswalk and they made me go off alone in the brush to set it off !!!

    Musket Cap question....

    The local Wal-Mart has the CCI four wing musket caps on clearance for $2.00 for a hundred. I have a GPR that I can send to TOW for a proper Nipple to use. Would using these be safe and not hurt the accuracy of the Lyman ??
