Kasenit may work for a bit but a new frizzen from L&R should be hardened all the way through. Then, get a good KNAPPED Flint like 410er said and learn how to sharpen them. Even a good frizzen won't spark well with a dull flint.

If it is an Accusport, there is something wrong beside the frizzen. L&R locks are top notch. It is not just the hardness of the frizzen face, but the carbon content. A frizzen of high carbon steel does not have to be very hard to spark well. Tempering too hard will leave the frizzen brittle and subject to breakage. Cut flints are crap and do not work as well on a good frizzen as an English flint. I had L&R locks that had fired over 500 shots and barely showed a scratch on the frizzen face. Have you checked with Accusport about the issue?
I had the same problem with mine but I used a tc cut flint to sight it in. It had about a second delay. I haven't shot it since I put the English flint it came with back in. I only had the one English flint so didn't want to ruin it when sighting in the new gun. Will be highly disappointed in the accusporter if the English flint doesn't speed up ignition. Had my firestorm going off almost instantly with the same setup including the cut flints
Gents, thanks for all the helpful information..
Retired Rusty-thanks for that, calling them soon..
Zimmer... It sparks, just not to the extent that I think it should. It fires, but I like to tinker around till it suits me... Thanks for your input though...
R2D2- never knew flints could be sharpened. I always replaced them after I thought they were worn out........
