PostSubject: cleaning a stainless Traditions Pursuit   January 24th 2018, 7:19 pm

My son brought me a Traditions "Pursuit" that apparently had not been cleaned in a long time. The breech plug was seized and the insert for the breech plug that would have the nipple is missing.  I made a wrench for the breech plug from an old 3/8 socket and I got the breech plug out. It's a stainless barrel and I have cleaned with a wire brush and black powder solvent but it still looks dirty. Any suggestions on getting it clean the rest of the way?

Chances are, its not stainless steel. Traditions typically does not use it due to cost and weight. Its either nickel plated or ceracoat. In most cases, flitz can be used to clean nickel finishes, BUT, its not always going to fully clean it off. If its a yellowish stain looking color, it will be there for life as a discoloration.

Thank you for the response. We will try the Flitz.  Also, if we can find or make the missing piece, we will also  also try some of your "Shoot Out" and see what happens.

check out traditions website for the breech plug parts, www.traditionsfirearms.com or even ebay, they carry a lot of the traditions parts.

Actually, Muzzleloaders.com referred me to ebay and we found the part. His wife got him the gun and he would like to get it working.  I'll keep you posted.

Recently I tried Kroil and JB Bore Compound on a really nasty barrel. Have been impressed with the results.
