Based on the company's Vortek line, the Maxim 50 is a striker-fired, break-action inline muzzleloader with a removable breech plug
My first model required seating a flanged musket cap over a nipple that screwed into the breech plug
The breeching design of the Strike is very user-friendly, consisting of a size 209 primer adapter, which serves as a breech plug
retained by a threaded collar.
Finally the breech plug
itself has to be screwed tight to seal the breech.
Bolt (threaded spring threads 3/4" retainer bushing) length 7/8" Top capping hole length 1" 1/2" Breech plug
and nipple to length 1-1/2" fit No.
It's also equipped with a 1-piece stainless steel Accelerator Breech Plug
, which allows you to fire both loose and palletized powder without changing the breech plug
It has a one-piece stainless steel Accelerator Breech Plug
, which allows the shooter to use either loose or pelletized powder without changing anything on the gun.
Break the breech plug
loose every 15 or 20 rounds, clean and relube, or suffer dire consequences.
First, by use of the two-stage Mag-Prime Breech Plug
System, the X Series can be de-primed without discharging the gun.
First you want to make sure that the touch hole is located ahead of the end of the breech plug
A combination nipple wrench and breech plug
tool makes removing these a snap then the barrel can be cleaned from the breech as it should be.
A letter "P" inside a sunburst was also stamped as a proofmark on the left flat of the breech plug
between two bands of gold.
