Sidelock + mag-spark

I ran into a problem finding No. 11 caps of any quality on the local store shelves. Due to cost of shipping I'm just not much for ordering power, etc online. Biggest reason I haven't tried Blackhorn 209 is it's not locally available.

Solution? Got a mag-spark so I could shoot 209 primers. Problem solved. I've been shooting 777 209 primers with pyrodex, and powerbelts flawlessly. Accuracy is unaffected, if anything it's enhanced as ignition is like a rifle now. Instant bang as soon as the hammer falls. Everytime.

So for anyone looking for a similar solution other than buying a inline. I highly recommend it.

I really liked that set up. Sadly the design for the CVA/Traditions brand was poor and it ripped in half on the 7th shot due to not having enough metal in the area. Im not sure if they fixed it by now or what.
