Washington Muzzleloader Regulations Change
In April 2018, Washington State has passed through the ability to use modern 209 primers during standard muzzleloader seasons. With these new regulations, there are a few things to keep in mind to prepare for these new changes. For hunters who have northwest regulation CVA and Knight muzzleloaders, there are a few options to convert your preexisting muzzleloader to be 209 compatible.
All CVA brand muzzleloaders manufactured after 2010 can be converted from a musket cap ignition to a 209 primer ignition. The two components that are needed is the CVA Quick Release Breech Plug and the CVA 209 Firing Pin Kit. For Knight muzzleloaders, a 209 or 209 FPJ conversion kit is required to make your rifle 209 compatible.
As of right now, there is no way to convert a Traditions Firearms muzzleloader or older Thompson Center muzzleloader from a musket cap or percussion cap ignition to a modern 209 ignition.
