I bought a new t/c triumph and the first time I pulled the trigger it did not fire off the primer
Used a remington premier sts premium.
Several primers later, there was at this point, a shot.
This is my first post, and I am new to the club.
Welcome TomW, This is a TC product isn't it? You could try different 209 primers, but I think I would give TC a call and let them know of your problem. TC has always been a great service company to deal with. Sounds like you're not getting enough striker contact pressure or striker alignment issue. Quick test would be to change primer manufacture and see if this solves the problem. Anyone else have some advice for Tom here? Good luck on solving the problem.
My muzzleloader box is not handy but i am thinking I used the remington kleanbore 209's. I started with a box of winchester primers and they would not allow me to close the gun to even attempt a shot. I have prob shot the t/c triumph around 50 times so far and as of yet have not had a missfire. I am going to see if I can find that thread to make sure I am right on what primers I was using.
Like huntingman said though if you have a problem T/C should take care of it.
Thanks for the info. Today I tried some Winchester primers that would actually fire every time. There is a real noticable difference on the length of the primer. I am going to
call t/c on monday, anyway.
I called T/C and they said to check the collar behind the hammer to make sure it is in all the way and tight. They also said they use CCI primers.
Thanks for the info, i'm going to the backyard to shoot.
