Re: Any tips for reducing delay in a flintlock??
exactly.....spark/fire should actually jump through the touch hole. alot of people turn the gun to the side and tap the powder into the touch hole. that actually slows down the ignition of the barrel powder because your waiting for the pan powder to burn through insted of jumping through. picture this, if you have two piles of powder in front of you wich way would be quicker to ignite them, a line of powder to one or a spark thrown at one. not sure of the name of them but theres a touch hole that is wider cone shape also helped with mine. They are fun guns, but can be frustrating sometimes.
