I saw one of these advertised on TV the other day. Anyone here have one or know anything about them. I don't even remember the brand.

Someday the savage smokeless rifle will get it right and come out with a rifle that fires a cap and electrical pulse at the same shot . That way the rifle will fire even if the battery dies. The electric ignition will be faster in locktime but if both ignition systems are used it will fire more consistantly I am sure.

Yeh, I would like to shoot one, too. Of course, I just like to shoot! \:\) I don't really see that they are needed, but, heck, we have lots of things that aren't needed.

About that legality - On page 21 of the Hunting Guide, #3 under Legal Equipment, it says, "Muzzleloading firearms are defined as those firearms which are incapable of being loaded from the breach." Nothing about that to disallow electronic firing systems. And on page 11, #11 under Prohibited Acts, it says, "A muzzleloader is considered to be unloaded if the cap is removed from the nipple or the battery removed from electronic firing system," which implies that they recognize these firearms as muzzleloaders. If there is anywhere in the Guide that says muzzleloaders with electronic firing systems are illegal I haven't found it.

Guys,

#11 above is in regards to the transportation of muzzleloaders on WMAs. We have a few WMAs that operate shooting ranges. This regulation defines safe transport of those firearms. There is nothing against the law about having and shooting an electonic ignition muzzleloader, you just can't hunt with them.

According to the current regulations electronic ignition systems are not allowed for hunting big game. It is stated on page 21 of the Hunting Guide.

3. Muzzle-loading percussion cap or flintlock rifles, handguns or shotguns of .40 caliber (.40-inches) minimum. These muzzle-loading firearms are legal during any gun season or hunt unless
otherwise specified. Muzzleloading firearms are defined as those firearms which are incapable of being loaded from the breech.

Percussion and flintlock systems are the only ignition systems recognized and allowed for big game hunting.

BGG, thanks for clearing that up. I didn't understand it that way. That's why it is so nice to have you guys here to explain such things.
