             Before PATE, CRAWFORD and HORNER, Administrative Patent Judges.                                     
             PATE, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                                  

                                           DECISION ON APPEAL                                                    
                                        STATEMENT OF THE CASE                                                    
                   This is an appeal from the final rejection of claims 1-12.  These are the only                
             claims in the application.                                                                          
                   The claimed invention is directed to a breech plug for use with firearms such                 
             as a muzzleloading rifle.  Appellant’s breech plug has a generally cylindrical body                 
             with a first end having a nipple to which a percursive cap is applied.  The second                  
             end of the breech plug has a stem of smaller diameter than the barrel.  This forms a                
             cavity between the diameter of the stem and the barrel.
