A muzzleloader is any firearm into which the projectile and usually the propellant charge is loaded from the muzzle of the gun (i.e., from the forward, open end of the gun's barrel). This is distinct from the more popular modern (higher tech and harder to make) designs of breech-loading firearms. The term "muzzleloader" may also apply to the marksman who specializes in the shooting of muzzleloading firearms. The term of art includes rifled muzzleloaders and smoothbore muzzleloaders. The firing methods, paraphernalia and mechanism further divide both categories as do caliber (from cannons to small-caliber palm guns).
Modern muzzleloading firearms range from reproductions of sidelock, flintlock and percussion long guns, to in-line rifles that use modern inventions such as a closed breech, sealed primer and fast rifling to allow for considerable accuracy at long ranges.
Modern mortars use a shell with the propelling charge and primer attached at the base. Unlike older muzzleloading mortars, which were loaded the same way as muzzleloading cannon, the modern mortar is fired by dropping the shell down the barrel where a pin fires the primer, igniting the main propelling charge. Both the modern mortar and the older mortar were used for high angle fire. However, the fact that the mortar is not loaded in separate steps may make its definition as a muzzleloader a matter of opinion.
Muzzleloading can apply to anything from cannons to pistols but in modern parlance the term most commonly applies to black powder small arms similar in the main to the weapons used. It usually, but not always, involves the use of a loose propellant (i.e., gunpowder) and projectile, as well as a separate method of ignition or priming.
I have this beautiful traditions muzzleloader. Bought it a year ago and haven’t taken it outside once. I have about $150 worth of accessories, everything you need to shoot it when you get home. This model is legal to hunt with in the state of Oregon.
Looking to get $550 for everything. No FFL...

Basically a Traditions Kentucky Rifle, Its a .45cal.... cut down to a pistol. Never Fired.

This is a mid 19th century double barrel muzzleloading shotgun. Pretty sure its 16 gauge based on a modern bore gauge I have. Bought this at an estate sale thinking I could use it for displays but never ended up using it.
Does anyone have a trigger group for a Connecticut Valley Arms Hawkin black powder rifle? It was missing when I got it, and it's been awhile since I've looked for one. Some "new" online but they're probably more than the guns worth.......Alternatively if you need parts for yours and I can't find...
Fora sale is a custom rifled 20ga flintlock made in the style of Isaac Haines, Lancaster PA. Stocked in a sweet piece of sugar maple, it sports a 38” Rice round bottom rifled barrel, Chambers gunmakers lock for a unique and one of a kind shape. The stock is fully carved and furniture engraved.
I’m selling a custom flintlock smoothbore, stocked in black walnut, 42” Colerain barrel, Chambers English round face lock with about 13-1/2” lop. Shoots a patched .600 round ball. Modest carving decorates the tang, toe and entry thimble and moulding along the ramrod channel.
Bought this a few months ago thinking I’d shoot it a lot and haven’t. Was going to keep it as a wall piece, but need to fund other projects.
Comes with all accessories needed to shoot. Powder, balls, patches, caps all new and unopened (100ct for balls and 150ct patches I think).
I’ve got some muzzleloaders for sale. First is a Remington 700, camo stock. Tiny bits of surface rust, but other than that is in good condition. Good rifling. 24” barrel
Second is a Armi-Sport rifle in .54. Don’t know a bunch about it, but it’s in great shape. The outside finish is great on both...
Hey guys, these were given to me by a family member a while back. I got no use for them and he doesn’t want them back. Ive never shot them, but know he’s hunted with the 700 a time or two.

The 700 has a little surface rust, and could use a good detail and...

I have a stainless steel CVA Optima Muzzleloader v2.0 with black stock. Its currently setup for 209 primers. I went muzzleload hunting 2-3 times and and its just not my thing so I am hoping to sell this as a complete package to someone who will put it to good use. I spoke with a gun shop this...

Looking for some advise with a broken wood stock. While going through my safe much to my dismay I found one of my rifles had a cracked stock. Rifle in question is a Browning Mountain Rifle in 54 caliber. The crack is in the grip area where your thumb on your trigger hand meets the stock. Not a...
I have 1000 Schuetzen 4-wing musket caps.
I'm looking for RWS 4-wing musket caps.
For whatever reason, my muzzleloader will not ignite the Schuetzen caps (but will the RWS). If your rifle works fine with Schuetzen, I'm willing to swap these 2-for-1.
Only looking to trade in person in the...
