I'm looking to buy a muzzleloader and scope for maybe $300.00. Are there any good deals on quality guns? I saw some thompson centers for 450 but thats way outta my range, but I'd like to get something better than a cva.

Thx, steve

Check out the http://www.sportsmansguide.com there selling the Knight Elite's in 50 cal for $249 SS/Syn, which is a great price. You may need to try using the catalog number of: LX5P-92337 in order to find it. It comes with sling and low mount scope rings.

If you want a discount on that try looking at http://www.ar15.com under the ammunition section, there is a thread towards the top with today's date and latest prices, use the link to sportsman guide from there and some coupons should appear that you could save a few bucks with.

Simmons Pro Mag44 scopes and Aetecs have been on sale over at http://www.natchezss.com for awhile the 44's are going for around $60 the Aetec I picked up was $99.

If you do order any of the above, the rings supplied with the Knight will not mount a 44 mm objective lens, I'm waiting on a pair of Warne mediums from Brownells, so I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet.

Good luck.

cant remember what issur of muzzleloading magazine I've seen an article where some cva's were rated just as high or higher than tc's, and knights.

I myself just bought a cva optima and fired it just today.
shat a 1" group of 6 shots. I am very exited and cant wait to hunt tomorrow afternoon with it!

This is a great rifle, the one I have used to take 2 deer with:

It's a little more than $300 for just the rifle. They have gone up in price in the past few yrs. Says it handles 200gr of powder, I only shoot 100gr myself.

I'm a big fan of break open action, because the primer is pretty well protected from the elements. Also with BOA, the breech plug comes out and you can easily remove a live charge, or clean the barrel.

These used to be available at Cabela's (where I got it), but not anymore. They seem to be a pretty small company, and now that Cabela's went corporate (public stock offering), you can probably imagine they will deal with fewer and fewer mom & pop type of companies.
