This year I plan on buying a new muzzleloader. I've had a Knight since I was young and it's time to turn it in. Any recommendations on my next one? I don't know what's out now so I need a little advice.

Cva accura v-2 is really a stud for the price! Love mine!

I will have to check out Knight I've always liked mine so I hate to change. I do like that CVA though.

The trick for me was finding one that had a comfortable stock. I also had issues with the click I heard on most of the break-action models. I talked myself out of some high-end muzzies because of these two. Looks can be very deceiving.

I bought a CVA Optima last year with a thumbhole stock at Wally World for $169 on "rollback". Stuck a 3-9x40 Bushnell on it for $49 and it will shoot 2" patterns at 100 yards all day with 270gr Platinum Powerbelts and 150gr Pyrodex. It will also stop one dead in their tracks at 22. I know. As stated, just pick one. They are not your father's Oldsmobile.

I would choose one with a break open action. Much easier to clean. Traditions has a new one out in stainless that's around $300.

i bought a rossi combo last year , 50 cal m/l with a 12 gauge slug barrel. got it new for 100 bucks at a local gun shop include a few extras as well . i want say its the best gun out there but for the price it works well. i put a scope on it and sighted in at 100 yards shoots plenty good for me. its a break action and i would highly recommand that if u are buying a new inline.

Cmaoman270, I see from a post you really like the CVA Accura V2. Did you get a regular or thumbhole stock?
