Knight mk-85 reloading

I'm new to inline Guns, I'm trying to load for first time. I picked up #11 primers but they don't fit. What other size would it be ? I would be willing to convert gun to 209 primers for easabilty.

RH, if nipple is too large for # 11 caps you need musket caps which are larger and hotter burning. KNIGHT makes breech plugs for both.

Some of the older Knight MK rifles had a slotted breechplug instead of the 7/16 nut. Knight made/makes? a wrench to fit these plugs. If the 7/16 deep socket and the standard Knight wrench don't work, you have the old style plug.
