Help!! Need part for Traditions Muzzleloader!

3 posts in this topic

I am in a real pinch. I was out shooting yesterday and broke the nipple retention spring on my Traditions 209 Tracker in-line muzzleloader. This is the spring that holds the 209 primer in place. I guess this is common but has never happened to me before. I contacted Traditions and they said that they sell them in packs of 5 for like four bucks but they are back ordered for 2-3 weeks and muzzle loading opens a week from saturday! Anyone have any ideas? or A spare to lend out till mine come in!

I believe I may have a spare in my stuff but I won't be able to check until early next week. But definitely look for some closer options. The first year I hunted mine was bad right from the factory. To get by until the replacement parts came I used a piece of electrical tape on the side of the primer to hold it in place. That made the primer big enough to stay in the nipple. Gun still went bang when I pulled the trigger. laugh.gif

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
