In-Line Muzzleloader Recommendations

Since we now have a camp in Ohio, I am looking at getting an in-line muzzleloader to use in both the gun season and the muzzleloader season. Not looking for the best, but just a good reasonably priced setup. For the kids, I would want something with a scope. Let me know what you think.

CVA, with removable breech-plug. The Wolf with a scope for the Kids, and a nice Optima V2 thumbhole for You. Or one step better with the Accura!

All are quite reasonable as packages on GB and other weapon sites.

Re: In-Line Muzzleloader Recommendations

Having owned 5 or 6 including TC's, Knight, Marlin. and CVA, the current best choice right now is the CVA Optima V2.
Remember you can order a muzzleloader and have it shipped to your door.

Re: In-Line Muzzleloader Recommendations

One more vote for CVA. I have a Wolf, it was low priced, and it shoots well.

Re: In-Line Muzzleloader Recommendations

What is the difference between the Wolf and Optima besides price? For strictly hunting purposes is it really worth the extra $$$
