flint for Lyman Great Plains .50

anyone know what size of flint their Lyman takes? I'm looking at my gun and I think the 5/8" is too small - any chance it should require a 3/4"?

3/4 x 3/4, you might get a 3/4 x 7/8 by cutting a small whole in the leather.

Re: flint for Lyman Great Plains .50

thank you, I was looking at my gun at half-cock and thought that the flint was too far from the frizzen with the 5/8". I appreciate it. I love this website!

Lyman flints are about 7/8" long and 5/8" wide. That's the cut agate flints they sell for the rifles. They work good for me.

Re: flint for Lyman Great Plains .50

The 3/4" English flints are too big for mine...It hits against the frizzen...making the frizzen unable to close...I use a 5/8" English flint and it works great.

PUSH EM!!

Re: flint for Lyman Great Plains .50

Actually I have used real flints, they worked OK but are hard to get here. I have had real good results with the Lyman flints.

Does Lyman sell them through their website? I can never find anything on their website. I have a Lyman GPR. Thanks.

Re: flint for Lyman Great Plains .50

On the package it says http://www.lymanproducts.com so I imagine they do sell them through the mail but I allways just picked mine up at the gunshop. The part # for the flints is 6030106 if that helps.

I have been using TC premium agates for about 10 years in mine. Easy to find at Wal mart, Dicks and Gander. Never had an issue. The regular TC flints , although cheaper,do not last more that a few strikes for me.
