What Muzzleloader?

7 posts in this topic

I am a long time deer rifle hunter that wants to try my hand at muzzleloading. I have purchased the all season license and have a place to hunt in the metro area during the muzzleloader season. I am going to purchase a muzzleloader but have no idea what to look for. Can anyone out there help a newbie with suggestions on what to buy? I'm looking for something fairly easy to use. I would prefer not to spend too much in the event I don like it.

I have a New England Firearms Huntsman with the Stainless barrel.

I love it. The one thing I dont like is their sights, so I upgraded them.

Gun was $200, sights were about $40.

Nice compact gun, very nice system for inserting the primers, easy to clean/disassemble.

You can also buy rifle barrels, shotgun barrels, etc to use on it as well.

check out this site...www.midwayusa.com check out there muzzleloaders. I would suggest either a CVA or Thompson Center. Both are great guns but get a stainless or nickle barrel. it will be easier to clean. Nice starters are CVA Kodiak or Wolf and Thompson Center Omega, z7 x5 type guns.

Yeah -- I seem to find myself in "jail

" one time per year.

You guys helped me get out last time so maybe you could "spring" me again.

That must be why I have not been asked to be a moderator. blush.gif

I've had a knight for 12 years, been very happy with it, no need to spend lots of $$$ on some of the new guns, stay with the basics, but make sure you use a 209 system, it will save alot of headaches, good luck with the smole pole this year

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.
