Default Frizzen loosing powder ?

Have a 50 cal flintlock ,noticed that any movement will dump my 3 FFF in
between the frizzen and the stock.
About a 16th inch gap.
What schoul;d I do to to fill this void ?
At the range I can shoot all day, still hunting is the problem,
Thanks

Is it the frizzen that came with the gun or has it been replaced? There should not be a gap big enough to lose the powder. If you hold it down with your hand is there still a gap ?If you can maybe your spring is weak or not lining up with the frizzen .Can you send a pic of the frizzen.Why do you use 3f instead of 4f for the pan?

I agree with the Grizz. There should never be a gap tween the lock and stock. Also... use 4F in the pan and not much of that either. Don't put it too close to the touch hole either. Mid pan is ok.

Got a new phone and don`t know how to post pic`s. But if you PM your phone # I can send you a pic. Investarm SPA .50 cal flintlock .All stock as far as I know. I schold have said powder is leaking between the PAN and the stock. Frizzen closes tight.

Just went over her with my made in USA X-mas present for my self gun smiting screw drivers and found all kinds of loose stuff. Tightened up niceley. Very small gap now between the pan and the touch hole.
I am shooting 2 F GOEX down the pipe and 4 F in the pan.
tried to take out the touch hole to clean and she is tight, and looks to be aluminum.
To late on a Sunday night to start that project.
Would love to drop a deer with her next weekend before the close here in Pa.
Thanks.

Turns out the guy over seeing my job in Coatseville Pa. Veterans Hospital is a member at my club at DCF Stream. And gave me a Ton of advice on the flint lock ! Gonna have to check out one of the Sunday black powder shoots.
Small world!
Good sheet.Can`t wait to get her back to the bench and back to the brush.
I still think the flint lock, and the bow, are my 2 favorite hunting weapons for downing deer. Now, I have to make my own bow.
Just so much satisfaction in it.

Oh ! I forgot...now that she`s right,,,priming powder stays away from the touch hole, not next to it . Been told that 100 times ,but it just stuck.
