May I take a moment and Beech ?
Why oh why, don't they (most if not all), muzzleloader manufacturers, use some sort of raised stamping on the flint jaws for a better grip of the flint holding choice, be it lead, leather, etc... It seems that I have to work and work at setting the flint (and holding component) just right to ensure proper frizzen connectivity, then lose the hold angle when I commence to cranking down on the screw. MANY times, if there is a slight "peak" in the flint where it meets the jaw, you can pretty much guarantee the flint will slide in the jaw grip with minimal pressure. Wouldn't a simple design of the jaw having some sort of raises bumps or teeth greatly reduce this from happening ?
