Default T/C scout

Has anyone had any trouble with blowback with these rifles? Been shooting 80 grains ffg for years out of mine and it has burnt my face for the last time. ><> del

Is the blowback coming from the side vents, or from the nipple? Have you disassembled the Scout and cleaned the side vents ?

Somethings wrong.I have had both a 54 carbine and a 54 handgun for close to 25 years and friends had others,never heard this complaint.Try a new nipple(plug?).Be sure to clean way down in powder chamber with a 32cal brush and patch with solvent.
