Anybody know a trick to removing a stuck breech plug from a CVA cheapie inline muzzle loader. I ground a large screw driver blade to fit the slot but all I've done so-far is deforn the slot?? All my other in-line muzzle loaders had right hand thread, does anybody know if possibly the CVA is left hand?? It has a patched ball and no powder charge stuck in it. Even if I get the ball out by another means the plug now has to be replaced. It is soaking right now with PB blaster. I will gone for a few days, I'll respond when I return. THX

This is probably too late. Had the same issue with my Knight. Had to use a vise and a socket set. The problem is that when you fire the rifle the grease on the breech plug oozes out. I strongly recommend using lots of gease and pulling the plug out and re-applying grease if the firing session is extended. Seriously, no more than 15 rounds without relubing.
