a replica of a45 caliber Kentucky long rifle my Dad gave me for Christmas. He got it at Sears. I took it hunting in 1983 and snapped a cap on a small buck. I never did kill a deer with it and eventually sold it for a Hawken. I feel guilty about that now and wished I would have kept it.

Who else started muzzloader hunting when sidelocks were the only choice?

My first was a cva hawken. Kicked like a mule when I was 14. It would smoke a dime at 35 yards but I never killed with it. Missed several with it tho.

Made in Italy. That's all it says. It's a carbine length side hammer that I still have. It had the set trigger, but no scope. I never got to fire a shot at a deer with it.

An old cva hawken style that sounded like a dynamite fuse burning when it popped. Better follow through with that gun. Lol

An Antonio Zoli 1863 Remington replica commonly known a Zouave. Popped a cap on two buck deer with that gun...never a kill.

CVA Mountain Stalker. My mom and dad got both me and my brother one for Christmas around 1990. Killed my first muzzleloader deer with it in Hawkins County. I still have it, but it doesn't see the woods anymore.
