I posted this question to Ed's Gun shop also. I am looking for all the info (good and bad) I can get on this muzzle loader. I have narrowed down my choice to either the LHR Redemption or new nitrate version of the CVA MR. All input is welcome.

I owned an LHR.  The quality of the fit and finish of the rifle is as nice as you will see on any in-line regardless of brand but it is "heavy".   The scope mount position was a concern for me.  Because of their breech plug design, (in my opinion) the scope mounts a little too far forward on the barrel.  Even adjusted all the way back I still had to move my head forward on the stock to get a nice sight picture and it was uncomfortable for me.  I would strongly recommend checking into this.   See if you can shoulder one with a scope on it "before" you buy.  I did love the breech plug design and ease of cleaning.  I felt the cocking slide was hard to push forward also.  It's OK for hunting but on the range when you are shooting 25 times it was hard on the thumb. 
 

I have the CVA Accura MR, very nice rifle with no complaints.  I hunt from a climbing tree stand and the MR is accurate, light and quick handling with it's 25" barrel.

Thanks for the info, especially the scope input. I most definitely do no like rubbernecking.
