Pleased review by Gary on 9/22/2015
"I bought a few months ago to take up muzzleloader season. I bought the combo with the scope and had an issue with the scope and the retailer was helpful. Once that was sorted out, I was able to sight in. I used 295 grain PowerBelts and both 100 and 130 grains of Triple 7. The 130 was too much and there was loss of accuracy, but I ran out of time at the range the weekend before season and had to hunt with that. Last weekend, I took a nice whitetail doe. It was about a 40 yard neck shot and the gun and bullet performed well. I'm not convinced on the accuracy of the PowerBelts, at least with the Buckstalker. The PowerBelts and the Triple 7 are convenient, but I'm not convinced they'll be the most accurate in the Buckstalker. I bought this gun as an inexpensive muzzleloader to supplement and add another season. I think it's fine for that. I love the design of the gun--I think it's classy. No regrets in the purchase."
Very good muzzleloader for the price. review by Levi Jefferies on 8/26/2015
"The trigger is very crisp and has a light pull. The Accelerator breach plug is also very good, it is very easy to remove without tools even after multiple shots. I really like the maneuverability of this gun, sometimes I prefer it over my Remington 700 30-06. The accuracy was about 3" at 100 yards. That was using 100 grains of loose triple seven with a 250 grain Barnes TMZ.
I have not used any other Bullet/Powder combination so it may be capable of more. The scope mounting holes were not drilled straight so my scope is at the edge of its adjustment range, but it sighted in just fine. I shot two deer with it last year, one at 125 yards and one at 30 yards, both dropped in there tracks. Overall great gun. "
Long Lasting review by Rhinehardt B. on 8/3/2015
"I 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. "
Durable Gun review by Gerald F. on 6/30/2015
"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."
