TC Triumph Breech Plug - Help!

Hey All,


Getting the inline ready for a hunt in KS next week, and I can't get the breech plug out! The model is a TC Triumph Bone Collector model with the Speedbreech XT. I was struggling with it after a range session, and over rotated it past where you line up the lines to pull it out. Now I can rotate the breech plug, but I cant get it to come out. Any thoughts? I thank you all in advance!

This is the time of year that T/C and probably other manufacturers get most of their calls about stuck breech plugs. Usually from lack of cleaning or over tightening.

Try using a hair dryer on the barrel. Heat it up long enough and you may get a little metal expansion to loosen the breech plug.

Should also mention that when done shooting at the range. Remove breech plug. That residue from powders like 777 turns to tar and will make removing breech plug difficult.

Line it up where is supposed to be for removal and knock it out with the ram rod down the barrel. Just had to do this with same gun this weekend. Took a pretty good knock to get it out.

Out of curiosity. How dirty was the breech plug? What powder were you using and how many shots were fired before trying to remove the breech plug?

About 15-20 shots using blackhorn powder. Breech plug was not very dirty. Seems like rubber o ring sticks

Interesting, I use Blackhorn 209 in my TC Pro Hunter and have never had a problem with a sticky breech plug. One thing I do use is TC Bore Butter. All natural lube. I know I can fire multiple rounds without cleaning using Blackhorn. But I like a clean bore in practice because I'll be shooting a clean bore hunting.

I'll wipe my breech plug, o ring once per shooting session. And one patch with bore butter down and up the barrel, one clean patch the same for every shot at the bench.

I take tubes of bore butter and melt in the microwave and pour into a plastic container filled with clean patches. One tube of bore butter goes a long way. Hence lubed patches on the cheap.

Also common with the TC ProHunters breech plugs which have a rubber O-Ring. Just a lil love tap will do it.
