    Stuck cleaning brush

    I was cleaning the channel at the bottom of my GPR flintlock barrel and got a .22 cleaning brush stuck. The brush unscrewed from the cleaning rod. I have tried air, a small powder charge and screwing the rod back onto the brush. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove the brush?

    Lyman GPR sights

    I received my GPR peep/hooded front sight from TOTW. Specified that these were for a GPR, unfortunately the front sight dovetail is too big for my barrel. I was wondering if this was just a mistake in shipping, or has this happened to anyone else. I plan to return the sights on Monday.

    GPR questions

    Shot my new GPR again today, pretty fair accuracy with 70gr 3F. I have been having a little trouble with ignition though-seems like the hammer strikes the nipple too high, also if the set trigger doesn't always cause the cap to fire. Second attempt to fire or use the front trigger alone will...
