Pioneer Of The In-Line Muzzleloader
Field & Stream Adds The Knight MK-85 To The 50 Best Guns Ever Made List
“Tony Knight is another country gunsmith who changed the way things are done. In 1985, he built a muzzleloader with the nipple at the rear of the barrel, directly behind the powder charge instead of alongside. This made ignition far more reliable and began the Great Blackpowder Revolution, which has resulted in muzzleloaders that are practically as accurate, reliable, and fast to load as cartridge-firing arms. All this drives traditionalists mad. But ordinary hunters love it.” Field & Stream

The Mountaineer carries all of our most detailed features. The 27” fluted Green Mountain muzzle-loader barrel catches the eye immediately, while at the same time providing accuracy with its handcrafted design. Each barrel has been hand treated with a ceramic basted bore coating that adds increased velocity and reduces the need to swab between shots. Every bolt and bold handle on a Mountaineer is individually machined, not cast, and then finished with detailed jeweling and intricate knurling, providing a touch of class to an ignition system that is easy to use and clean. The laminate straight and thumbhole stocks are not only rugged but have a timeless appearance of elegance. Each rifle comes equipped with an Easton Carbon Core Ramrod, fitted with a reverse threaded solid brass jag that extends out to help safely and firmly seat your bullet. Finally, a metallic fiber optic sight set rounds out this beautiful black powder rifle that is claimed by many to be the most reliable and accurate muzzleloader on the market today!
