Issues I need resolved!!
I have a CVA Hawkins that I have had some issues with, that I hope I can resolve. I started out with a #11 percussion cap, that even with the touchhole chamber clean, seemed to just plain fail every shot. I have new powder, and to "ignite" the powder, I put a few grains of the ff powder in the clean out port, and this is when and only the gun would go off. This gun did not have a proper screw in the clean out port, so I ordered a musket cap conversion, and a proper clean out screw, I sure hope this helps...any and all advise appreciated. al in Illinois
