none, in my opinion it is a single shot rifle. But it is a start, next step buy a flinter
congrats on your new gun

Inline - Definition, a tool for those in need of an excuse.

You'd have been in better company to post this on an inline forum, or if you had purchased a percussion sidelock rifle. Inlines to alot of traditionalist muzzleloaders (myself included) are no different than cross bows are to recurve shooters.

recurves are modern curses! Longbows forever!

In lines have their place. Many traditionalists consider them the muzzleloader for those who can't figure out how to shoot a real gun. I have flinters, percussions and in-lines. In-lines are used the least. In fact one in line hasn't been fired in the 25 yrs I have had it.

Unfortunately, folks who don't know anything about muzzleloaders are drawn to those that resemble their cartridge guns and so they buy in-lines. They don't realize that a sidelock can do absolutely anything an in-line can do.

note that it says muzzleloader forum, not flintlock or traditional forum.

nothing wrong with an in-line, heck if there was a rock season, people would argue over river rock vs gravel, it gives us all more time in tha woods and thats what it's all about is't it?

This is the muzzleloader forum not the traditional forum!
It's in the right place.

Some folks really nead to expand narrow mindedness thus enhancing their appreciation of the great Muzzleloading Sport!! Plus...those that say an inline is synonymous to a centerfire really don't have a clue regarding muzzleloading load develpments/refinements, custom cast conicals etc. therefore are not appreciative of others enjoying our sport.

I am an avid flintlock shooter/hunter who owns a Brad Emig custom built 54 cal PA Mountain Rifle(flintlock) plus a 54 Cal Lyman GPR flintlock.

Inlines...I shoot/hunt with a custom built(by Doc white) White Rifle Super 91 .504 cal plus a TC Pro Hunter 50 caliber.

I honor/respect/support ALL muzzleloading enthusiests no matter what their choice of front end stuffer!!

Zeus50, very best of luck with your new muzzleloader!!
Look fwd to your shooting reports!!

I understand it's not a flintlock. It's on the wish list.

Nice muzzleloader George. I prefer the stainless steel one but that is just because I feel they are easier to clean and prevent from rusting. At that price though you cant beat it.

Disregard those other guys. They can go back to their traditional forum. And yes I can say that because I own a flintlock, a percussion, and 2 inlines.

They are the same guys that walk out shooting compound bows when they should really be shooting "recurves".

You mean LONGBOWS! Modern tools rock, but traditional tools rule.

I love these discussions!!! The question was asked:

Which rightfully leaves it open to opinion.
