Knight Breech Plugs

Post by knightrifles » August 22nd, 2018, 3:05 pm

All Knight® Rifles are equipped with a removable breech plug for easier cleaning. The breech plug should be removed at the end of each shooting session for a thorough cleaning of the bore and breech area. Knight® Rifles manufactures several styles of breech plugs, and you should familiarize yourself with the one in your rifle.

Using the wrong breech plug may cause the breech plug to blow out the back of the muzzleloader.

When in storage or in use, the breech plug must always have high-temperature synthetic grease, such as Knight’s® Breech Plug Grease™, applied to the threads. This will help prevent the breech plug from becoming stuck in the receiver. Apply plenty of grease to all of the breech plug threads.

We have redesigned some of our breech plugs to better accommodate today's modern black powders. The fixed vent breech plug provides 40% longer life and drastically less blowback. The vent liner is fixed and non-removable.
