I was hoping to gain some insight into techniques and flintlock modifications to minimize hang-fires. My rifle is very reliable with regard to firing; however the delay between pulling the trigger and firing the patch and ball can sometimes seem like forever. I have noticed that some flintlocks fire almost simultaneously. I have not altered my gun at all since I bought it. Are there modifications that I could make (ex: larger touch hole) that would shorten the time between pulling the trigger and the barrel going off? Should I try to put more powder on the side of the pan farthest from the touch hole? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.
