I was having trouble with my old Renegade frizzen and I got a new T/C replacement (on ebay, so I'm hoping it's an actual T/C part). It sparks better, but not what I was hoping for. It seems to a little spark better the more I strike it with the flint.
Anyhow I was going to try to resole my old frizzen just for fun. What do you think of this steel to use? C 1095 high carbon steel, hardened and tempered to RC 48-52. .015 thickness. I can't seem to find any spring steel etc.. to use

BHJac, I recently ran into the same issue with a Renegade, and went to Dixons ML. The old man there said the T/C frizzens are crap, and the steel lasyer is not uniform on all. He said in some cases, you can easily scratch it to the pot metal, wearing away the steel coating. He replaced it with a Lyman frizzen for $26.50 in @5 mins, and the spark is now phenominal!

HA...!! I looked everywhere for that stuff. Didn't want to buy more than I'd ever use and spend more than I would on a new frizzen... THANKS..!!

My gut told me that I should have bought a Lyman frizzen and rework it to fit, but I thought I'd get a T/C because it's made for the gun. So, now I need to decide.... get a Lyman or try Kasenit....

You are in York? Shydas in Lebanon had some when I was there last week, hanging on the wall. And Chuck at Dixons has them. Maybe Leyman in E. Prospect? And also, if Your T/C is registered, T/C will ship you one free under the warranty. And the Lyman, T/C, Interarms and Investarms frizzens all fit. Lyman just has the least amount of pot metal inside.

Which I guess is a different Lyman QA/QC spec. because they all come from the same Italian factory!

Sorry for bantering, but also trim a hole in the back of the leather, so the flint rests on the jaw bolt. will put a little more beef in the strike, but also makes it a one-ended flint. It will [censored] up the bolt end!

I have 2 t/c locks (flint's) both have a Lyman frizzens I will say the one rifle has at least 1000 shot on it still going strong.
T/C has also new hammers hit a little higher on the frizzens and with tom Fuller Black English flint I never had any problems shoot as fast as a 30-30 rifle,remember they have improved flint touch hole liners also works with a Allen key to installed maybe .070 hole:Good Luck

I stopped in at Cabin Creek about 2 months ago. Brad didn't throw that out as an option, but wanted to rework the lock and put on one of his frizzens. Which I may consider having him do over the summer (if my fix doesn't work).
I also called T/C about my issue because years ago I also heard that they will just replace your lock and or frizzen. They didn't seem too interested.
