I received an e-mail from Bass Pro Shop letting me know about a sale they’re running now on deer hunting gear and accessories. Knowing they’d have muzzleloader rifles listed in their black powder category, I took a look and found one I think you’ll really like.
It’s a Thompson/Center Triumph .50 Caliber Magnum Inline Muzzleloader Rifle, and it’s pictured above. In fact, when you click on the image, you’ll go right to the Bass Pro Shop page that features it.
Whether you need a good muzzleloader for hunting or want it in your self defense gear, this is said to be one of the best. It’s highly rated on Bass Pro’s site for high performance and ease of operation and cleaning. If you know anything about firearms, you’ve no doubt heard of Thompson/Center’s reputation for quality. Bass Pro has this particular rifle on sale at a considerable discount for a limited time.
Bass Pro says this Thompson/Center Triumph .50 Caliber Magnum Inline Muzzleloader Rifle is the easiest-handling .50 caliber magnum ever! It has only 4 moving parts. It’s said to be a joy to shoot. Another plus is that it isn’t difficult to clean. No trigger removal, disassembly, or tools are required.
This muzzleloader has a lightweight alloy receiver that offers superior balance. The composite stock is beautifully sculpted and is capped by a Sims Limbsaver® recoil pad. The tip-up 28” barrel has a toggle lock that gives you fast access to a hand-removable, patent-pending breech plug that resists seizing and fouling.
This rifle also has a hammer block auto safety. It uses hot 209 primer ignition. It comes with an aluminum ramrod. The gun’s overall length is 42” and it weighs 7 lbs.
As for the reviews, one likes the breach plug that can be taken out by hand, but cautions to put some anti-seize on the threads. After hunting with it all season, he declares it’s well worth the money.
Likewise, another said T/C makes the best muzzleloader on the market. He tried 2 guns from a lower priced competitor and was very disappointed. He also calls it a tack driver. He says it’s very easy to clean and was pleased with the light recoil considering the powder charge and bullet.
To be fair, I should mention that another reviewer experienced a misfire while out hunting and found that the firing pin retainer screw had backed out. He tightened it up and had no problems firing a primer afterward.
If you’re in the market for a top quality muzzleloader rifle that’s not complicated and performs like you’d expect from a Thompson/Center firearm, get this Thompson/Center Triumph .50 Caliber Magnum Inline Muzzleloader Rifle from Bass Pro Shop while it’s on sale.
