Lyman Frizzen for T.C. Lock

This was a mod I did last fall when I was tuning my T.C. Lock and am very happy with the result. I think I put a post on here about it at the time. I noticed on the RMC website today that they now offer a Lyman frizzen already modified and sell it as a T.C. replacement. Might save some time for those not wanting to fool with the grinding and drilling.

RMC knows that the Lyman was a better frizzed all along.

Good one Zimmer!

Links were put in by Viglink (whatever that is), not me. I changed it to T.C. and they went away. Kind of strange.

Re: Lyman Frizzen for TC Lock

Vast improvement over the TC frizzens...and doesn't take much work....a lot cheaper than an L&R lock too...though I love my L&R...


Highly recommend the "updated" hammer for the TC lock...flint life and spark got much better from that alone..

Re: Lyman Frizzen for TC Lock

Great news!! My T/C frizzen only like hard German agate flints. Does the Lyman like the English?

Re: Lyman Frizzen for TC Lock

Both my L&R and "updated hammer" TC lock (with TC frizzen) like the german agates. The factory TC lock with Lyman frizzens liked the English flints. Havent put a Lyman frizzens on the TC lock since I got the update done...I will soon...the updated lock had a new frizzens and sparked decent...and still does so I will shoot it a while..it'll likely be a while as I won't be hunting with the TC anymore... Hoping dad will give it a walk...he's never fired a flintlock... I think if I have a 2nd gun he will try it..

Re: Lyman Frizzen for TC Lock

Very good replacement for the tc frizzen and is a very easy mod. Just as a heads up tho we bought two of the rmc mod frizzens and they were both ground at an angle and would not fit, so further modification was due. The very best option is to just buy the Lyman frizzen and modify yourself.

Re: Lyman Frizzen for TC Lock

I purchased two of these. One fit and the other one needs more grinding. But that is due to the lock, not the frizzen. Neither of mine are ground at an angle. I am using english flints in my other TC with Lyman frizzen and it seemed to work well.

The modified frizzen costs about $10 more. I don't know that it is worth it if much more grinding is required. I agree with Ebeale in that regard.
