Black DiamondThompson/Center Arms

The Hottest Ignition System Available in a Muzzleloader!
The Black Diamond TM is a modern style in-line muzzleloading rifle which features the hottest and most reliable ignition system available today - and 3 systems are included with each rifle.
The Black Diamond TM provides the shooter with 3 separate and easily interchangeable Flame Thrower TM ignition systems; Musket Cap, No.11 cap and 209 Shotgun Primer.
The choice of the ignition system is up to the shooter, but whether it's for Musket Caps, No.11 Caps or #209 Primers, each of these systems will deliver 3 times more fire into the powder charge than conventional primers deliver.
T/C's Flame Thrower TM nipples direct 80% of the priming fire into the main powder charge (a standard nipple directs only 50%). The patented (No.5,907,920) design of the Flame Thrower TM Nipple throws a "Ring of Fire" into the powder charge, in addition to the central core of fire which hits the powder simultaneously. 300% more fire means sure fire ignition in even the most adverse weather conditions you will encounter.
