Market for muzzleloaders

Postby timberseller » Sun Nov 25, 2012 8:33 pm

With the new laws allowing 45-70, etc... Is there any market left for muzzleloaders? I have a nice one and am just wondering if I should keep it or try to sell it?

Make a good paper wights these days... tough selling them local because you wont get much money for them unless you sell outta state where they dont allow 45/70 or .35 whelens.

What make and model is your muzzleloader?

I still use mine as well, mainly because I'm too cheap to buy these other models...but from what I've seen in the market, a top of the line muzzleloader isn't bringing over 100... I shoot a cva in-line bolt action, magnum

Welcome timberseller :welcome:

Where are you located? Your best bet is going to be to take it to a gun show in Memphis, and try and do some trading. Thats how I had to get rid of mine (Knight 50 disc rifle). I paid over $350 for the gun new, and ended up with a trade value of about $125.

There is just no market out there in MS.

I would register on TNDEER.COM and list it in their classified section, and if your on facebook, joing the North MS Gun Traders "group" and list it on there.

I have a dozen muzzleloaders. Nine sidelocks and three in-lines. Seldom use a cartridge rifle any more. Also, I use GOEX black powder most of the time. Seems I've been infected with big clouds of white smoke.

No better way to hunt than with a real primitive gun and bringing home the meat !

Here's a nice 115 lb. doe taken with my TC Hawken with a .58 caliber green mountain barrel - patched round ball & 95 grains GOEX FFg.

I had to track her for six feet - but the blood trail was good. ;)

Yes most people scoff at RB but imo there is little to beat it when used within range limitations , i've taken 450 lbs kudu with my .54 at 70 to 120 yds using 100gr Wano ffg and a ball and most piled up within 20 yds
