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 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.
Today's headlines read, "Hunter Dies of Heart Attack!"
I don't know how many times I have seen that headline in the past 16 years that I have lived in Colorado.
I moved here in 1994 via the U.S. Army to Ft. Carson, Colorado. The "Mountain Post" as it is sometimes called.
When I arrived here, in pretty good shape, the unit told me that I could not participate in P.T. (physical training) for at least 30 days. Now, I had just come from an overseas tour in Korea and was stationed in the...
