They will fit but it won't be the same size. Since the season is over I would send it to TC and they will replace it with the new frizzen for free.

Re: broken frizzen

They require some modifacation, I use a cutoff wheel on a dremel tool. I think you are way better off with a Lyman frizzen on your gun, but it needs to be properly installed. TC would likely replace the frizzen for you, and I hear that they have made some better frizzens lately. They would also completely check out thye lock and install their new-style hammer for you. Best bet would probably be to give TC a call.... Good luck to you whatever you decide!!

The best guns go off with a rock in the lock....

Re: broken frizzen

I wouldnt bother sending it off. You can order one for 11.25 plus shipping right here.

You will have to pay to ship it back to TC. [censored] for 18 bucks give or take a few you dont have to deal with shipping it TC or waiting for them to fix it.

Re: broken frizzen

FWIW,

Over the years I've bought about 4 or 5 extra T\C frizzens. Everyone knows the T\C frizzens don't last all that long because they are not case hardened all the way through.

So, when I get two or three that are no longer "good", I just send 'em back to T\C with a note and my return address (the most important part!!!) asking them to replace them as they no longer spark.

I get new ones in about a month.
