Traditions Buckstalker Reviews
"Out of the packaging, the Buckstalker is lightweight but solid. The fit of the barrel to the action when closed is very tight, and the action closes firmly and holds strong. Overall, the nickel finish is smooth with no nicks or marring visible. The stocks are a Monte Carlo style, black synthetic with checkering in the grip areas---nothing fancy but durable and functional. The trigger pull is crisp and smooth out of the box. Nothing feels loose or out of place. While a value-buy they put plenty of quality workmanship into these firearms. Field stripping is very easy, requiring only one screw in the fore-stock to be removed...The Buckstalker has a light 3 lb. trigger pull that is surprisingly smooth for what Traditions considers a budget rifle...The Buckstalker lives up to its billing as a compact, lightweight and feature-packed budget in-line muzzleloader. The quality and features that can be found on rifles that retail for twice as much as the Buckstalker make it a steal. The Buckstalker allows you to hunt for less with the confidence you have a durable rifle that will last season after season. It is a quality muzzleloading brush gun that won't break the bank."
"I have one, and have killed several deer with it past 80 yards. Longest shot was 150, when I dropped a doe in her tracks. I dropped a nine pointer last year with it. Never twitched. I'd recommend using granular powder. The burn is faster, and I believe with this rifle you will have way fewer misfires...like zero. I use 100 grains Pyrodex and a 295-grain Powerbelt bullet. If the gun is cleaned well after use inside and out, it will last you for years. "
"Right out of the box, I took two practice shots at camp. The third shot was at 40 yards straight through the lung of a mule doe for a clean kill. Very impressed with this gun!"
