Ok folks, I have the money, I have the CFO permission, now I would like your advice please. If you had $300.00, and only $300.00 out the door, for a Muzzle Loader which would you get and why? Let me know and I will be very greatful!
I have a CVA optima pro magnum that I bought for less than $300. For the money, I believe it is one of the best muzzleloaders on the market. It has been field tested and kcraider approved, if ya know what I mean.
Buy that Knight from the other thread, you won't be sorry on workmanship, or how it shoots....I have 3 of em, and love em all!!!!! Go buy it, and come back, so we can help ya spend more money on accessories!!!!!!!!!!
Well the deal on the Knight Underclocked had for sale is hard to beat. The Knight is Made in America and they use Green Mountain barrels made with American proofed steel. The CVA rifles have barrels Made in Spain.
Well I'm at school right now and the link won't work for me, but I think the website for White is---or so google tells me: http://www.whiterifles.com
Give them a look. I don't shoot one, or have a muzzleloader for that matter, but I've never heard a bad thing about them!
There are a few members on here that shoot them, and I'm very suprised they haven't commented yet... I guess the White faithful on the board are a little slow so far...op:
Just recently found out that Mossberg offers a .50 cal muzzleloader barrel for their model 500 12 gauge pump shotgun. It takes 209 primers and has rifle sights on it, that's about all I know about it. The price is about $120. If you happen to have a Mossberg 500 12 gauge already, that may be an inexpensive way to get into muzzleloading. If you don't have the Mossberg, you can buy a new 500 12 gauge for about $200 and have a nice turkey, clay pigeon, rabbit, and coyote shotgun and put the muzzleloader barrel on for deer season.
Has anyone here heard anything good or bad about these Mossberg muzzleloader barrels? I'm thinking of buying one as a backup gun. I shoot a CVA Magnum 150 which seems just fine for under $300 with all accesories and loads to get started. :cheers:
