Mine has long been a Knight DISC with walnut stock, 50 caliber. Shot many a deer with it. But last year I bought a Remington 700 50 caliber stainless with a Boyd's thumbhole stock and MAN!!! is this thing sweet!

I have long been a huge fan of Remington 700s and have owned several, one that I presently have and will not sell, is a 1976 700 in 30-06. One of the old good ones.

What's yours?

I have a number of different ones but my Sav MLIIs have served me well. My ULA Model 20 along with a Ruger No. 1 conversion are also good.

I have a Knight MK 85
....it is gorgeous
I have a MK85 that really is a safe queen. Wood stock, blued barrel, really in pristine condition. I basically bought it because it is a piece of Tony Knight's history. Gotta work up a load and shoot it this season.

Got 2 Favorites of the IN-LINE Muzzle Loading Variety I would not call them Modern By no means, But CVA Buckhorn Magnum, then the CVA HunterBolt. Why Modern By No Means, I have seen the stuff out now from Break Open to the Rifle Primer Fired. Mine are Dated and Antiquated by the "Modern Standard" of today. AND YES contrary to misguided, hater Belief they are MUZZLE LOADERS. They are not Flintlock/sidelock/mule ear/matchlock/percussion but muzzle loaders just the same. Turn your nose up thumbs down all ya want or like to. Powder and Bullet stuffed down the barrel with a shotgun primer ignition source No different from flint/percussion/match where powder and bullet go down the barrel......My bad my rant......

While I mostly shoot flintlocks and sidekick percussion guns, I do own a T/C Triumph that shoots great. But,
I bought my grandson a small cheap CVA Wolf, with open sights, and that is more fun to shoot than all the others.
I know that is counterintuitive, but it works well for me.

In his book "The Muzzle Loading Caplock Rifle", Ned Roberts talks about the different things folks tried in order to obtain a more positive ignition. The first step was a device much like a modern Flintlock Primer that fit over the nipple and added fine powder inside the tip before the cap was placed. The second was similar to the old "Flame-N-Go Fusil from the 1970s or 80s. It had a cap with a "firing pin" that unscrewed to allow them to use one of the new "modern" cartridge primers. We're talking 1840s to 1860s. So, primer ignition in a muzzleloader is nothing new! The latter device is still being manufactured today by a modern company. It's called the Mag-Spark: The Mag-Spark

I have an older 50 caliber CVA Eclipse I purchased to teach Muzzle Loader Classes. It came with a 4X scope. I've taken it out and fired it. It did okay. I think I'd like cleaning a "Break-Open better.

I wish Savage still made theirs. Not for the Smokeless Powder aspect but just because I like Savage products. I've been considering the CVA Paramount in 40 cal for long-range shooting. I can't use a primer-fed ML in Oregon.

Traditions Pursuit is my go-to
but TC Encore in 209x45 and
Contender with Gonic GA-90 45 cal
are both reliable alternates
