                                            Appeal No. 2006-2529                                                 
                                         Application No. 10/428,792                                              
                                              ON BRIEF                                                           

             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.
