Re: losing all my priming powder in my pan
If the powder is going down between the lock and the barrel you may end up with more of a bang than you expect when the powder in there decides to light up!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Until i can work on mine,of which will do the same thing,i took a thin piece of an old leather glove and fitted it between the lock and the barrel.I trimmed it to the same shape of the lock and barrel metting spot and a little below the pan ,after i had installed it. I used a razor knife.It worked,as i've said,until i get it fixed it right.
My pan leaks powder along the rear and the outside. Not alot but it will go empty. The quick fix for this,as i was told.for temp fix,Chap Stick along the edge? This may work between the pan and the barrel leak spot.Just use enough to fill the gap?
This all seems safe,to me,but i can't say until i try it more!
