I understand that you dont need a FFL to buy a muzelloader if the desgn is of or before a certin year.Can anyone shed any light on this?Does that mean a minor can buy?

I'm not sure about a minor

I'm not sure about a minor buying a ML but they are usually exempt from the FFL.  However some states and or city's still restrict them on how they are shipped through the mail or who can receive them.

minors and a ml

If i'm not mistaken , I think you have to be 18 to buy any type of weapon. Call a local gunshop and ask in your area.

Even in California,

Even in California, muzzleloaders are exempt from most of the regulations regarding firearms.  No background check, just cash and carry.

I would imagine that there would be an age restriction. I am sure that the powder is controlled to over 18, as it is in most places, so why wouldn't the gun?
