Knight ultralite questions
« on: October 08, 2022, 02:27:45 PM »
I am looking at purchasing a knight ultralight. I have a disc and disc extreme now and like the way they shoot but I want something a little lighter to carry around. If anyone has one I would love to hear the pros and cons. Also is the nitride finish worth the extra money? Thanks

Bought one when they first came out. Love it, light weight, very balanced and points very well. If I had to gripe about it I would say the bolt could be a little smoother but itís not a big deal. The only problem I have is made worse because I shoot left handed is the safety sticks up like a lollipop and gets knocked off safety several times a year going through brush or while using a safari sling. Safety could be lower profile but it is what it is. Wouldnít trade it in.

I have one and like it. No cons for me.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

I have a Knight UL Stainless (nUmber 11 caps) and a Cva Optima (musket caps).  Restricted to that in OR.  Bought the Knight first after a lot of research (thanks SabotLoader), and got the CVA later for a spare.

They both feel nice and light to me, compared to a scoped centerfire.

The Knight UL is a very nice gun.  Itís not twice the gun as the CVA for more than twice the price, but thatís just how diminishing marginal returns work.  It just feels like quality.  I handled a bunch of Knights, Bighorn, Mountain rifle, Wolverine, etc, but when I picked up the UL, I knew it was the one.

I shoot Thor bullets in the UL.  I could not get either of the lead bullets that I could get at BiMart (Hornady 385 Great Plains, and Power Belt 300 gr Pure Lead) to group at all.  Not consistently hitting paper plate at 50 yards.  But I know others can, I just quit trying after I got the Thors to group.  As for terminal performance with Thors: Iíve only shot one doe.  High double lung pass through and she went 30 yards.  Minimal blood trail.

The break action CVA breech plugs are more convenient to unload without shooting it out, however.  Triggers are both good, in my opinion.

Iím a relatively new Muzzleloader, so I was really worried about ďwaterproofiness.Ē  I hunted in heavy rain/slush/snow in the Salad for a week with the UL.   I got nervous on the third day, and tested it, and it fired.  And it fired again on the last day as well.  Using a muzzle condom of course.

Thatís the some total of my experience; hope it helps with your choice.
