If I bought a new muzzy it would be the knight ultralight. Sabotloader sent me a detailed PM about it how to make it watertight with some add ons. Pretty sweet

I have a new ultralight and it shoots awesome. Knight on the other hand is a joke of a company in my experience to work with. They do not properly pack rifles to be sent across the country. Did I mention the gun shoots awesome though. Still waiting for a pack of bullets they said they were going to ship. I should probably call and remind Jason for the 10th time. I just bought a Bergara rifle and BPI has awesome customer service.

I have a knight bighorn and just purchased an Accura last year. I love how light the Accura is, but I am no fan of the Peep sight system I added to it. I will be going back to my Bighorn with the Williams peep system that works much better for me than the Western Precision Peep system that I put on my Accura. I have found that the inserts for the front sight on the Accura get washed out and you cannot see them at all if a dark background or low light. The Accura has a trigger that is super light and will take some getting used to compared to the Knight Bighorn. The 209 is nice on the Accura, but I have yet to have my Bighorn misfire with No.11 caps, so next season I will be toting the Bighorn and the Accura will either be sold or scoped if they legalize them in Washington.

The DISC is a very good price right and it certainly works well!!! plus the options that it allows you are excellent.  It will shoot every bit as good as the ULite!

The ULite has come down quite a bit and yes does have advantages over the DISC - Less Weight, Excellent carry rifle and the added option of Nitride finish.  I would certainly suggest the Western Version

Either rifle I would suggest the FPJ type ignition from the factory and then convert to 209 ignition with Lehigh Defense option, a primer adapter for the 'Red Plastic Jacket bolt and bare 209 breech plug with vent liner.



DISC set up for Western hunting



ULite set up for rifle hunting season




Keep shooting muzzleloaders - They are a blast!!

I have a CVA Optima (a few years old and was the same as Accura without the upgraded barrel) and absolutely love it. Everything about it is easy, maintaining it and keeping it dry in real hunting applications is easy, the weight and balance is perfect,  I love the thing, its just a great gun. My brother has a Knight (not sure which one) it shoots accurately, when it shoots. He has had issues with it which might be more user error than gun related, but everything about it just seems a little awkward to me. As you can tell from my words, personal decision, both will shoot good, which one feels good in your hand and will be natural for you to operate?

JakeLand, Lee Shaver has the front globes with a 3/8' dovetail. I had a local gunsmith cut the dovetail into the barrel. It is the best option according to Mr Shaver. We did 2 disc extremes and a bighorn. We used model #LS17625 which is 5/8" from bottom of dovetail to center of globe.

Paint this on the cross hairs on the front sight insert on your Accura.   "Charge" it with a headlamp before first light and before last light.  Works quite well for me to see the crosshairs and the target in low light conditions.

Thanks for the information on this. I will give it a try for Spring bear and see how my eyes like it.

It depends on how much you put on.  I used a thin artist paint brush.  I painted the entire length of the crosshairs, and then put a glob in the center of the crosshairs.   I used a Lee Shaver insert crosshairs in mine (I made my own front globe before Western Precision made these sets), but it's the same process/concept.   

Attached photo isn't very good because of where the camera on my phone is, but if you can see the glob in the center in the photo well enough then you get the idea.

Vote for disc.. Not sure if the other models are but I dont like break up actions for mz..disc was an upgrade over bighorn and although its a Lil over 8lbs it seems really solid free hand and under 70 would take it over my scoped American mainly due to the better trigger.. They are harder to take apart than others and my routine is time consuming to prepare for a hunt to make sure theres no oil anywhere internally and everything is dry but have never had problem in late western WA seasons..havnt dealt with customer service in years as I havnt needed anything other than a new nipple..

No T/C? I have owned Thompson rifles back to 1975. Now owned by S&W. Haven't seen any change to quality.
