I bought a new pa pellet in June, Nothing but ignition trouble, Good thing I have a friend who has a machine shop, Took us 3 hours to get a reliable ignition. I will never buy another. Shooting black powder.
Take it for what its worth,
While the T/C is probably the better of the two, I bought a Traditions PA Pellet rifle last year and had no issues with it. Had it to the range several times and once I learned what I was doing (I was a newbie), I had no issues.
I just bought a traditions PA Pellet and the gun works great. Have been at the range several times and have nit had any miss fires. Fairly quick ignitions and it holds a 2in group at 100yds. this was my first traditions gun I purchased and for the money its not a bad weapon. Cabelas has them with the ready pack for 400 now.
It seems that people with the newer Traditions muzzleloaders are happy with them. The early ones that I had the opportunity to shoot were not impressive. They had cheap plastics sights and the locks did work well. I have been around a bunch of TCs and Lymans and currently own two TC Renegades (which I like very much). However, my advice would be to buy a Lyman. I think they have the best lock and that is kind of important on a flintlock.
