    I am in the market ( for a year or so) for a new Muzzleloader. Not much talk here about them. I am down three choices - Knight, T/C and ( Don't laugh ) CVA. Just wanted to know if anyone uses them and can give feedback on what they have or use.
    I am looking at .50 cal. inline.
     
  2. I have a Knight Wolverine, .50 cal inline, excellent gun. It will shoot either sabots or powerbelts very well, pellet powder or loose works the same. I would highly recommend Knight but then again this is the only ML I have ever had.
     

  3. I have a couple CVA sidelocks and have no complaints. Just need to figure out what powder charge they like best and go from there. Also, even tho the pre-weighed pellets are designed for inlines you may find out yours likes loose powder best, so try out both. I have read good things about a new substitute, American Clean Shot, and would recommend you give it a try.

    I have a TC Renegade 50cal that my wife bought for me about 10 years ago. She bought it in hopes that I would have a better chance of drawing an elk tag, 16 points later I still don't have a tag. That rifle has never had a grain of powder in it. It is in just about the same position on the wall as the day it arrived. :cry:

    My brother just bought a TC .50 cal in stainless last week at SW. He's yet to shoot it, but it sho'nuff is a pretty gun.

    Now, if I can just draw that muzzle-loader desert deer tag this year, I can borrow his and put the money I saved toward a new Hoyt Vectrix. :D

    Chief, You have a Rifle that you never shot? I don't believe that. :mrgreen:

    Thanks for the input.
    CVA's sure have alot of Models. My friend bought CVA Buck Horn for $120.00 as a Starter Muzzy he now has the Omega. I shot both, and I can tell the diffrents between the two. He told me not to waste my money on a Buck Horn. So it's between Knight and CVA.
