Knight ultra light
« on: January 30, 2018, 06:33:56 PM »
Well I pulled the trigger (lol) on a new Knight Ultralite. Pretty excited , I've never owned a muzzy but fell in love with them last year when I got to shoot my buddies traditions. Can anyone recommend a good starter kit for shooting and cleaning? I know these guns can be dirty and I love cleaning guns, but I want to get some quality products to protect my investment.


I won't ask which bullet to shoot, but could use some tips on Caps to powder. I plan to hunt mulies and elk with this sucker. I noticed some pellets say use only with 209....are pellets hard to ignite with Western legal primers? I'm definitely a black powder noob.

I know there's a ton of info here and I've looked around alot. What's one more thread hurt?!

Any info much appreciated!

209 primers (shotgun primers) will most likely be made legal before hunting season, so as soon as the proposed regulations become final in a couple months, you might want to check into converting to a 209 primer ignition.

Loose powder is a better choice. Don't worry about using 209 primers. Properly used caps should ignite fine in the vast majority of cases.

I have an Ultra Lite and like it a lot.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

Call me crazy, but whatever is legal now is what I will be using.

As an archery hunter, for some reason I like making things harder on my self. Im quickly going the way of trad bow and black powder. I feel comfortable always having a MS tag, and after striking out hunting early archery, and muzzy with a bow....Ismacked a really nice WT buck opening day 5 minutes after first light.

Fair chase means everything to me, and primitive seasons I feel should always be primitive!

SO....im gonna play with loose powder and see what I can come up with!

Thanks all!

How do I remove the bolt assembly? I have scoured the internet and read the manual. I can't seem to find out how to remove the bolt so I can get at the breech plug. I want to take it apart and give it a good cleaning.

Can anyone help?

I was, the little release knob was incredibly stiff and difficult to pull out. Im heading to the hardware store here soon to get a socket for the breech plug so I can do some cleaning. Shot it a few times times about 2 weeks ago, swabbed the barrel real good but I know the plug has to be dirty still.

Im officially obsessed with black powder!

Quick cleaning ?:

I thoroughly cleaned my gun, and the final patch I sent through was dry. I left the breech plug out while I tracked down some grease, and for the heck of it i sent a patch down the barrel to find it came out with a very light orange hint on it.

The last time i patched it, it came out perfectly clean. Did I somehow set in motion some light rusting? The gun did not sit in the safe dirty at all.

Do I need to be worried about this? Or does anyone recommend using a product on the barrel before putting it back in the safe for extended period of time?

Flash rust is no big deal, it has not had time to do any damage.  Clean it up and oil it and life is good

I would suggest just make sure the last thing you put in the bore is a very good synthetic bore oil.

This is my simple cleaning routine..



Might try this sometime also...

Keep shooting muzzleloaders - They are a blast!!
