I currently have a Knight T-Bolt which I like and has been good, but getting the primer in place even with a priming tool and the weight is getting old and am thinking of it as taking a backup role. I think I have the new Muzzleloader itch, I am thinking of the Knight revolution as I have always owned Knights and been very happy. The only factor is the price, I have a friend who thinks the CVA Optima or Traditions Pusuit would be just as good and is less money. anyone who has any experience Pos. or Neg. opinions are welcome to chime in.

I checked out a Traditions Pursuit at the company store in CT and to tell you the truth, I wasn't overly impressed, and I usually like cheap guns. I think the H&R version may be more desirable & better quality overall with a stainless rather than nickle barrel, etc... just my 2ยข.

I bought a Traditions Pursuit and overall the rifle is OK. The main complaint is the trigger pull is so high that it hurts your finger to shoot it. I did my own trigger job and it is now fairly good (not great but acceptable). Doing the trigger job is not an easy chore either. If you are going to consider a Pursuit I recommend trying the trigger before you buy it. Some are better or so they say.

I just bought a Knight Revolution.
I might be able to post an initial assessment in a week or two.
