muzzleloader parts

Post by perentie » 12 May 2023, 1:15 pm

I have a Euroarms .45 cal Hawken I bought a while back. Its had a fair bit of use and the lock is playing up. I dismantled it and it is the fly that is worn out letting it drop into half cock.A look on the internet did not find me any parts suppliers here or in USA.
Any ideas or tips on making a new fly? Or where I can get a replacement lock?

G'day perentie,
These were sold in the US under the Investment Arms brand, Bobs Gun Shop has parts but you will need a friend in the US to buy them and ship them to you. Any reasonable Gunsmith here could repair your lock but price is the problem, rate per hour is fairly high for a relatively low cost rifle. A friend who is a trainee Gunsmith overhauled the lockwork on my Euroarms Kentucky percussion for $50 & a half bottle of wine, said it wasn't difficult to do. Best of luck
