Q:
I know that everyone here has heard of gander mountain.I've decided to postpone my paintball adventure of a great deal on a .50cal inline muzzle loader. It's a Buckhorn 209magnum. only for $104. It's normally 149 so I'm curious about value. My.22 was $97 so should I get it? Im worried that it maybe inaccurate or brittle. If you think a buckhorn is good at a $ 100 price-range , please tell me. Thanks a ton.

piece-o-crap gun. made in china for 30$ and the rest is simply shipping and retail add-ons so they can make money. buy a t/c bone collecter you can buy one for 200-300$ if you know how to buy used guns (talk them down)

I second the cowboy. Buy T/C - it has a good reputation, a warranty, and parts available. And most likely it will shoot at least pretty good.

The Cowboy,

The gun is not made in China it is made by Bergara in Spain. Quite a difference. The rifle is an entry level gun. They are dependable and they are reasonably accurate. No, they do not have a lot of bells and whistles, they are a price point gun, and introductory model if you will. While not top of the line they certainly are not junk. CVA has had problems in the distant past, over ten years ago now. The most notable involved the staghorn, a similar looking but quite different model. I know the folks at CVA and they put forward a good product. Their products also come with a life time warranty. Parts and service are available right here in the USA in Norcross, Georgia.

Jay,

There are better guns in the CVA line up. The price on the Buckhorn is an average sale price. As a matter of fact my local Wally has one for $99 right now. We use this gun as part of our hunter ed program and our students enjoy shooting them. As I said above they are reasonably accurate. They are also fairly easy to clean and maintain. We have encountered no problems with them that have not been encountered in other muzzleloaders costing much more. You can buy a better gun from the CVA lineup, the Wolf for instance for just slightly more. If you want a muzzle loader and this is your price range then the Buckhorn is not a bad starting point.

Cowboy should not comment on guns he obviously does not know about. To answer your question the buckhorn is a wonderful entry level muzzele loader and i have personally dropped a 200+ lb. buck in its tracks at 100 yards with it so good choice Jay and I am sure it will serve you well.
