Traditions Buck stalker

Found a good deal on this gun and I'm looking for some info on them. If anyone has one or shot one and could and could give some reports that would be great. Only going to be used a few times in early muzzleloader season. Thanks for any info.

Re: Traditions Buck stalker

I also purchased one several years ago at Cabelas. Gun was on sale for 249.included 3x9 scope,sling. By opening a Cabelas credit card I got $80 off my purchase. With that said I couldn't pass it up. I use powerbelt 295 grain hollow points with 150 grain Triple X pellets. The muzzleloader is very accurate. I have harvested deer out to 150 yds. For the price it is an awesome gun. You will get 3 shots and then it needs cleaning.

good luck

Re: Traditions Buck stalker

Bad news is the thimble on the barrel that the ram rod slides through is loose and spins 360 degrees. There is no screw to tighten. I contacted Traditions via email and they never responded.

Re: Traditions Buck stalker

Call them by phone. Just not sure what you expect of them. I do not believe Traditions has a lifetime warranty.

If you are not mechanically-inclined, you may be better-off taking the ML to a gunsmith.

Re: Traditions Buck stalker

I shouldered one at Cabelas and it felt good.

Re: Traditions Buck stalker

I've had the Buckstalker with both the old and new style breech plugs. Both were great guns, light, very accurate, easy to clean and maintain. Great guns for the money, if I ever get back into ML hunting I wouldn't hesitate to get another one.

Winchester M70 XTR Featherweight .30-06
Marlin 336CS .30-30
