I've got a Knight Bighorn, and cannot seem to find an extra breech plug for it anywhere. I've looked in a Midway USA catalog and didn't see it in there and have looked in Cabela's and Bass Pro and can't find it. Just wondering if any of you have any sources as far as where to look. Sure do wish I had a couple extra now since I think Knight went out of business. Sure don't want to have to buy a new one (muzzleloader) if this breech plug gets ruined.

Parker, You are a life saver. That is exactly what I have now/ need to buy for my gun. Did not see that before on their site. May buy a bunch of them when I get my next check just to make sure I have them to last a long long time because I love that gun and treat it extra special. Thank you so much.

I don't think you'll need to buy a bunch of them personally. I think someone else will come in to fill the void. This was discussed on here a couple weeks ago by Underclocked I think, talking about the plastic caps needed for the Knights.

If you've got a good one now, I would buy one extra personally, but that's just my take on it. :cheers:

I never did have a plastic disc for the 209 primer for my muzzleloader. The breech plug i've got is exactly like the one in the link that Parker posted. The reason I'd like to buy a few of them is because the original breech plug that came with the gun, the primer got stuck in and I couldn't get it out of there at all, so I bought another one, and if that would happen again I want some more good ones on hand to be sure I can still shoot the gun and use it. Would HATE to have to retire this gun and buy a new one because I can't find parts.

Is there anyone that may be able to get the spent/screwed up primer out of my one breech plug?

I bought a second breech plug for my KRB7 when it was still brand new. Knight has great service. I placed the order on line and I had my new breech plug in 3 or 4 days. They may be out of the rifle making business for the time being but their service department is still running strong. Good Guys there and will answer any question you send them on line.

For you stuck primer. Take a drill and put a hole in it big enough to put a small screwdriver in to twist it out. If you have access to a set of easy outs use one of them instead. I can't understand how a primer could get stuck....but "stuff" happens as they say.

Bring that breech plug up to the farm one weekend when I'm there and we'll get that primer out of it. I'll call you if I'm going to be there this weekend. :cheers:

Modeer, I'd appreciate that. That spent primer must have expanded or just got punched down in there a little futher than the rest when the hammer slid forward and hit it. Tried to get it out with pliers and now it is a mess.

Yep, a standard Winchester 209 primer. Bought a box of 1000 when I bought the gun. My bro is using primers out of there for his gun too. Dang near got one stuck in my backup breech plug when I was shooting just a bit ago.

Polish the inside of the primer cup on that plug. Just enough to smooth it out good. You must have some rough edges in there.

[rquote=1507246&tid=104990&author=macon county boy]yep the winny primers tried to stick in my knight bighorn i got some cci primers they work fine[/rquote] i bet it's a tolerance issue, major diameter of the primer starts out to big and when you snap it the pressure expandes it enough to stick it, polishing the primer pocker with some emery would probably do the trick
