    Not sure, but I have a pre 209 wolverine that I converted to 209. Not sure if it has the same breech plug as the LK-93. I still have the plug in storage. I'll see if I can take a pic and post.

    Here is the plug with the nipple in place.....



    The ML came with a two ended tool. One end removes the nipple from the breech plug....



    And then the other end is used to remove the breech plug from the barrel.....



    Again this is from a wolverine, so I'm not sure how it will translate for you.

    OMO...Did you make a play for the Muzzy? Have you looked at the gun or was this just an ad?

    Tell him $25 cash - tell him you don't like to lowball but you'll have to put money in it to put it in working order and that the price of new ones is now so low blah blah blah

    Just my opinion - I don't think muzzys hold their value like other guns, might be wrong, but that's what I see

    The few Knight owners I've talked with all like them, including me (Wolverine)

    http://www.knightrifles.com/209-conv...-breech-plugs/

    The two conversion plugs say that they're for the 1) Extreme, Long Range Hunter and 2) KP1, Shadow, and Vision models.
    Huh.

    A buddy bought one a couple of years ago and the guy had put the breach plug in without lubing it and shot it a lot without cleaning it.... Lucky for him we got the plug out and and the barrel cleaned up really well... Knight used green mountain barrels which have a good reputation...... Put it into a vise and worked it back and forth until it came out... Replaced it with a 209 kit and it shoots as well as mine.....

    OMO I think the kit was around 50-70 dollars..... But that comes with everything you need.... PB blaster along with WD-40 and let it soak and just worked it back and forth..... The removal tool has a hole in it about the diameter of a good size philips screw driver, but a med size pipe wrench will also work on the tool as well..... And when I said a vise it was a chain vise made for cylinders..... If you use a standard vise fashion a couple of blocks of wood too protect it somewhat.....

    J is the Breech plug similar to what I posted?

    OMO....My biggest concern would be the condition of the barrel. If the plug is locked up, how well was the barrel cleaned? It might be all pitted.




    Sorry...looks like I was typing as J posted.

    This chilly weather and this thread have just given me a muzzy hard-on.

    Yeah Shu looks like the same..... I looked at the 209 primer kits and they went up some.... Looks like they run about 80.00 plus tax or shipping... So unless you get that for 25.00 you'd be better off spending the 150.00 for a new one like Dan suggested..... At least doing that you'd know what you have..... You don't have too upgrade if you don't want to but my groups out past 100 yards tightened up quite a bit with mine..... It's up too you on that one....

    If the plug is stuck make sure it ain't loaded and heat it with a propane torch.....or fill a small container in PB blaster or better yet Kroil and let it soak immersed in that stuff. Offer em 25...ya can find a newer gun with 209 primer for 100-150 bucks if you look around.
