Doc- some of your questions would indicate that your rifle did not come with an owner's manual- right?

Here it is. Print it and read thru it, keep it for reference.

Got my cleaning rod today and swabbed the barrel. Clean! I fihnally discovered that te double wet trigger works. The first one is very hard and has a heavy pull but it makes the seond one very light to the touch,

Thanks for the URL for the manual. That manual says that the percussion nipple should be a #11.
