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

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
