Exclamation Lyman Breech Plug Failure - The Lyman Recall Is No Joke

Someone bought a new Lyman Trade rifle from Bud's last week.
Yesterday, on the 2nd outing with the gun, the breech plug broke off from the barrel.
Bud's Guns said they didn't know about the Lyman recall.
The recall is serious and the word should be spread before someone gets injured.

This is serious business and I am guessing, and thankful, that you were not injured.
Can you give us some detail on the load you were firing / caliber of rifle / the works.

How did you discover the break; did the barrel dismount form the stock, cloud of flame and smoke erupt in your face?

Again, I hope you are okay.

I just got my TOW English Fowler today, stopped at Dixon's and picked up the bullets / patches to shoot smooth bore PRB and the fixin's needed to fire 20 ga shot from it as well. Kinda' scared now.............

Heard of a flinters barrel bulging due to loading error etc but first time ever for this. Checked Lyman's ML page, Press Releases etc & nothing jumped out to me re Recalls etc. Thanks for posting this Sun as i know some here have Lymans.

There is no reason for you to be scared, unless you had said you just purchased a Lyman firearm. I have not heard of this happening to anything other than Lyman guns recently. If I were you I'd go enjoy the gun and not worry about it.

Bud's guns said they didn't know about the recall? Huh. That's kinda hard to believe.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

Lyman Recall

This is the original letter Lyman sent out at the beginning of the year.
This went to all dealers also

This did not happen to me.
I only posted the link to the original thread to help make people aware.
I've read posts by three people who said that this same failure happened to them, 2 others posted on the muzzleloadingforum back in February.
And now this 3rd event happened 7 months later.
There's slightly over 3,000 recalled guns.
Only Lyman knows how many breech plugs have failed and how many guns still need to be collected.
Hopefully there are not too many more left that are dangerous,

That's what my local gun shop owner said too when I told him about it but he was cool about it and checked it out on his computer then sent the barrel back for me at no cost to me.
