If you call Knight, they do pick up the phone.  They’re very responsive with emails as well.  Great customer service.  When I had a trigger issues, the GM himself reached out and walked me through the problem (my fault).

I still think its the one behind the trigger tension adjustment screw. Did you pull that screw and check?

At least you got a new muzzy out of it. :chuckle:

@Sabotloader

He knows exactly where it goes. Seems like he helped someone on this very issue before.

If anyone knows, it's Sabotloader.   8)

Yeah, I am done messing with it for the most part.  I have had this gun for 10-15 years.  Never had an issue with it, but never really hunted a lot with it.  This year hunted muzzy elk.  Twice during my hunt, I got back to camp and attempted to dry fire it with no luck.  The trigger wouldn't release.  First time I took it home couple of drops of oil, and blew it off with air.  Seemed to work.  Hunted a few more days and same thing happened after a day in the woods.  Trigger would not release.  Sprayed it down with WD and penetrating oil and after 24 hrs. still could not get the trigger to release.  Disassembled it, not so gently, cleaned it, and had some trouble getting it back together with those two retaining clips.  $200 bucks for a new trigger is what Knight wants.  Think I paid 300 for the gun new 15 years ago.  Plus the new gun was $800 lol.  Gunsmith would probably be as much as the new trigger.  So I will probably buy a new trigger and put this thing in the back of the safe so I don't have to look at it.

I got the new trigger.  Nice one, Timney.  Everything works fine now.  Took it to the range, fired it once, cleaned it and to the back of the safe it goes.  New muzzleloader gets a workout with load development.
