I bought this gun new about 5 years ago, never even loaded it, and ended up selling it to a guy aI work with. Yes, I know, its been neglected. He has had a problem with it since it was new. He can close the breech fine with out a primer in it. But when he puts a primer in, it wont close. The firing pin actually hits the bottom of the primer. Any idea what he needs toi do?

Big Daddy, it looks as though the firing pin spring is probably rusted up, not allowing the firing pin to bounce back.  Had this happen to a friend's TC Encore awhile back. He used 777 powder and had substantial blow by that caused all the corrosion in his receiver and his firing pin assembly.  I took it apart and cleaned it thoroughly.  Replaced the spring and he was back in business.  I hope this helps.

what tony said! You can see the firing pin sticking out. Maybe use some kroil and soak that sucker for a few days and see if you can free it up.

Thanks guys!! I was surprised to see how bad of shape it was in!! This guy is kind of fussy about his stuff, so when I saw the gun I was in shock!! He also thinks it's the firing pin spring, and pin. He said it won't move at all. I am going to Cabelas tonight with another buddy, (him and his son are buying muzzleloader a tonight, and asked me to go along) so I am going to look and see if they have a spring and pin, just incase his are junk. I will keep you updated!

PS. Maybe I will pick up some oil for him too.. 😉
