I’m far from an expert on muzzleloaders, but last I heard, if it’s loaded from the front, and uses black powder, it’s not defined by common firearms law. Therefore it can be configured out of the normal. Electric ignition though, beats me.Not soliciting legal advice, but am wondering if a electronically actuated blackpowder muzzleloading "Cellphone gun" is legally defined as a AOW? It came up in conversion with my father and NFA documentation was somewhat opaque on the specific manner.
Yup, that moves it away from being a 'handheld manually-operated firearm' to 'remotely-controlled lethal device'...If you are talking about a "Remote" firing system, than that is something that I don't believe is legal in WA. It would be a "Set Gun" as in if you had it next to a window to act as a Burglar Alarm. They also aren't legal to Hunt with. You can't set one up around a deer feeder(also not legal in WA) and fire it remotely when a deer or other critter shows up on the remote camera.
