Anyone know where in the world I might find a rare beast like this?

I am searching for and .32 or .36 Cal inline or Bolt action rifle to shoot round balls at squirrels from,

Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed. Even a redirection on the size of projectile.

Thanks for anytime you spend reading this or responding to it, Roscoe

I've never seen one, but I haven't seen everything. Most muzzleloaders in the small calibers are the traditional sidelocks.

Which you might consider. They're a lot of fun for squirrel hunting.

Pete is right , never seen an in-line .32 or .36. Use a sidelock rifle.

Could have sworn Knight had a 36cal inline but those are extremely rare and impossible to find.

In 2005 Knight made a limited edition 32cal based on the disc extreme. I think they made a total of 250. They are probably very hard to find.

knight made one i looked for 2 years and gave up and bought a crockett 32 it shoots hornady .311 balls amazing. head shots at squirrels at 50 yds is pretty easy with this rifle.

I think a .32 will be good to at least 75 yds on small game or birds.

I thought so too, but I keep seeing them for sale. Maybe it's left over stock.
