RMC T/C Frizzen

Curious if anyone has tried one of the RMC T/C frizzens on there T/C Hawkens. I ordered one for my T/C and according to RMC website it is a Lyman frizzen that has been modified to fit T/C. I have heard of lots of people buying a Lyman frizzen and making it work but it sounds like the RMC is T/C ready.

The older I get the better I was.

I bought one a couple years back and it works perfect I asked then to out a new flint in and make it so it would shower sparks and they did, I also had them put an RMC front sight with the red fiber optic and it sure did help my groupings from the old thick blade sight that was on it,

My T/C frizzen is the original from 78 or 79 when I bought the gun and is grooved pretty bad, so I'm sure the RMC should be an upgrade. I really like the looks of the RMC Accusporter Flinter and wish there were a dealer around here that carried them. I can see me making the trip to Bellefonte one day to check one out.

Morris muzzleloading in Grove City has them. Believe they make the flinters nearby. May be tough to find them though this time if the year.

Thanks, I noticed they are sold out on the RMC site. I'm putting one on my wish list for next season.

Can anyone advise how it is different than a T/C frizzen? Different shape? Harder?

I was planning to harden some frizzens at some point - I have all the stuff for it - but right now I swapped back to my #1 lock (I carry a backup) and even though that frizzen is scarred up, it is working fine for now.

Bone, like was said, Morris in Grove City is the place to get them. I can't remember how they are tied in to RMC. I know as of a week or so ago, they had atleast a few on hand.... likely still do...or can get one quicker than any place else.



Any frizzen is probably better than an original TC frizzen lol. They weren't properly hardened....hence the gouges.


I modified my own Lyman frizzen to put on my TC when I used it. Just took a little file work. Sparked much better. Sent it back to TC to get an upgraded hammer....which greatly improved the locks geometry. The flint strikes a bit higher...flint life is better and Sparks are better. Doubt that is an option anymore though since TC is no longer TC and they are out of the sidelock business...but, maybe worth a call.

This is an excellent improvement to your TC lock. You might need to do a slight mod on your frizzen spring to get it to fit up against the frizzen. You will know if it doesn't sit tight against the pan. But the end result is a much harder frizzen and better spark.
