209 Muzzy's In Washington
« on: January 26, 2018, 04:43:54 AM »
 It looks like the 209 will become legal in Washington. Are you going to be picking up a new muzzy, and if so which one?
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

Knight ultralight. Unless I can buy a kit to change my Northwest legal over. Even though I could save that for Idaho. Always a reason to buy a new gun. Will they still make it to where the cap is exposed?

Nope. The “Exposed to the Weather” language is struck out in the proposal.

I have been waiting until after this all becomes set in stone before I buy a Muzzleloader.

So if this goes through, we can have the muzzy’s that have the breech completely protected?  Another question, are 209 primers that much better than a musket cap, and can my Thompson center xr.50 be converted to a 209??

Here’s the text. What I’m not sure of is how the Remington Ultimate Muzzleloader fits in.

I wish they’d just add scopes as well.  So is the 209 that much better?  I’m pretty sure my t/c xr can have a 209 nipple installed, I just won’t be able to fully enclose it, unless I put a cover over it.

I’m guessing you guys already know but does the state classify 209 as percussion ignition? I don’t know how they classify them.
If it goes through I’ll be buying a 209 bolt and breech plug for my disc extreme.
I still don’t see any purpose for allowing them.

I am very against scopes for muzzys in wa.

This was my exact question when I read the proposal.

I already have the 209 conversion kit with my Knight Disc Extreme & have used it on a New Mexico hunt so I would use them if legal in WA.

I would like to see them add scopes to muzzy s for people with vision issues.  I know some old time whose eyes don't work as well as they used to.  Have it similar to a disability tag, show proof from your doctor, apply with the state, etc.  I am hesitant to put a age restriction on, since loss of eye sight affects many people, but you could do that as well.

I think they consider 209's a modern cartridge primer.  That is why they had the last sentence in the regulation and specifically stated they were illegal.  With the new regulation the just changed it from illegal to legal.

I voted in support of the change, but in the comments I suggested they should clarify whether the intent is to keep the "exposed to the weather" requirements or strike it out.

I don't think it is whether you define a 209 as a percussion ignition but rather the bit about primers used in modern cartridges being legal that is key.

:yeah:  It's not limiting to 209.  Check out that newish Remington Long Range Muzzleloader.  Only thing holding it back is not having a scope, but a good peep should be consistent to 300 yds.
