Notice I am in the minority. I shoot a plain ole CVA Optima. Absolutly as accurate as the Omega, at half the price. And I have never had any problems whatsoever out of CVA guns, and I have been shooting them for over 10 years.
I am only 20 years old but i know my black powder. I have been hunting deer with a knight for 11 years now. The reason that i have not change gun is because i hear of people coming out of the woods saying i had a big buck but my gun miss fired. But you never here of a knight miss fire. I have killed a deer ever year with mine and i never even think of it not going off. So i will stick with my knight after all they did my the first in-line. Plus they shot the best. Just look at the shooting matchs the last fine years they win them all. So one gun make (knight)
My ole Lyman has never mis-fired on me. Most of it is how you take care of your rifle before loading. Rain or shine...always goes off when it's supposed to. Can't say about them in-lines...never have owned one. Did hold one once...my buddy was showing me his rifles and slipped that one in on me.
i guess t/c payed shocky more then knight. But two weekends ago i shoot a deer with my knight at 187 yards and it never moved. And t/c is a good in line my dad got one and he has differene cal. to that what i like about them. It is all in what u like, i like a knight u like t/c they both kill.
I know this sounds bad but I bought a CVA Buckhorn .50 and I have not had one misfire hangfire or any of the such. The 209 primer is like shooting a .22 when I snap a cap to burn out any moister in the barrel. I am happy with the gun and the price was right on a benfranklin and I had a gun and another ben raped in the powder, cleaning stuff, primer, tools, and scope and mount. I just got it a month ago and just shot my first deer a 7 point this past weekend the buck stumbled about 10 yrds and fell over dead.
There it sits. Alone and forgotten in a desk drawer or maybe in the bottom of your hunting pack. The lowly compass. Primarily initially replaced by the hand held GPS and now even by the new “smart” cell phones that include GPS, electronic compass – even real time imaging on aerial maps! Once the friend of every hunter and now the companion of few. It is not glamorous or glitzy, that is for sure… no bells and no whistles. Aaaaah, but let’s not rush to forget our...
