Great choice! That is my favorite current production muzzleloading rifle. It just fits me perfect, and is easy on the eyes. I like Tip-Up Rifles, and have a slew of them.

Yes there are some differences in the breech plugs. Western Powders plug comes with the wrench like CVA's, but also comes with a pin vice with drill bit for cleaning the flame channel, and some O-rings. Western's is in stock, CVA's is currently out of stock. There are a few other places you can buy the CVA version if they have them in stock.

Extremely impressed with the gun, 110 blackhorn and 250 tez Barnes groups were under inch at 100 yards, the 50 the shot loaded like the first with absoutley no cleaning, the 49th and 50th shot still touching one another at 100 yards. This gun is a winner

Going to try Barnes mz the sabot is a little bigger just to see what it does with it and the 4 petal design, this gun as totally simplified muzzy compared to my first knight which I still love from over 20 years ago
