Breech Plug removal

Breech Plug removal

Postby jlindsay+ » January 14th, 2013, 6:44 am

Just ordered a new Mountaineer (bare primer). I won't even see it until April because I'm deployed. I'm trying to purchase as much stuff as possible so when I return, I will have everything. Is there a special tool that you need to remove the breech plug on this rifle? Thanks in advance.

I have a socket wrench dedicated to BP removal for my Knights. The older ones take a deep well 7/8"s I think, with the extension. Once I set mine up for a hunt, the BP usually stays in until I get home. That may be several days, shooting B209 powder. With the other powders I'd take it out the eve of shooting it & clean well.

Hi guys, I'm new to the board also and Knight Rifles as well. I too am waiting for a mountaineer to arrive. Yeah I would go with the socket as it will be much quicker. Don't forget to put ample breech plug grease on the threads it will help things along more smoothly especially with triple7! I will post when I get a chance to go to the range. John thanks for serving and I will pray for your safe return. Godbless- scotth

Just an idea for yas. I take the tool that you get with gun and weld a straight piece of rod to it and then weld a T on the back end. Works great for me. Good Luck!! Shoot Straight and Shoot Often!!
