I'm curious why not just use regular firearms, as apposed to these? The advanced technolgy seems to have made them close in performance? Right?
My state has an added week of deer hunting for "muzzle loaders only" with fewer restrictions compared to most muzzle loader seasons. Some states dont allow scopes and 209 inclosed primers during blackpowder seasons. Almost every year our regulations change so it does vary but we are not forced to use "primitive" firearms.I'm curious why not just use regular firearms, as apposed to these?

Total in the gun minus scope is just under $300. The stock was a left over from old CVA surplus. I saw a post from a year ago about them selling on a BP forum. I sent an email and the same guy from CVA hooked me up. They no longer make the stock for their Kodiak rifle, just a standard laminate. It just required very minor fitting since both rifles are almost identical. CVA even gave me the 2 parts (collars and bolts) i needed for the conversion free.Because of the extra week of hunting here, a lot of my friends hunt with a muzzle loader. They will use them all season so they are using a familiar gun the whole time.
That was a steal for $74
