Re: frizzen

A properly hardened frizzen will not be even be scratched by a file it will have to be stoned or ground. As long as it dosent get to hot to hold with bare hands you will not effect the hardness

Re: frizzen

I use a dremel tool and follow with a fine flat file with 220 [email protected] paper
just remove enough material to fit in the slot on the lock were the screw goes threw to hold the frizzen in place.
I have a lyman frizzen on all my t/c locks one lock must have close to 600 shots and still sparks like crazy

Re: frizzen

If I remember right you need to file on the side of the frizzen hinge point,toward the barrel.Little at a time and check fit often.You don't want it sloppy.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!
