PostSubject: Muzzleloader Hybrids   November 27th 2013, 9:59 am

I've voiced my opinion of mixing up traditional muzzleloaders with inlines. I've said sidelocks should use black powder, PRB, and iron sights. Inlines are free to use modern bullets, powder, and scopes.

Traditional hunting, and modern muzzleloader hunting.

This is just my opinion, so don't take it personally. We're all free to do as we please.

With that said. I ran across a gun for sale on GunBroker that one of you guys should look into. I've been watching it for the last 3 days, and the price hasn't moved. Someone is going to steal this gun if nobody starts bidding soon.

The gun is a TC Renegade. It looks brand new. Look at all the pictures. Look at the triggers, and butt plate. They show zero wear. It has a Green Mountain 28" 1-28 twist barrel. I'm sure this barrel hasn't been shot yet. Look at the nipple area, and look at the crown in the picture that looking down at the muzzle. No sign of being shot.
It also has a scope mounted on it. It's a cheap scope, but the mounts and rings look first class. It has all the original paperwork, and some extras too.

For those who want the performance of an inline, but the look of a sidelock. This would be an excellent choice.

Take a look.

Pete I agree with you here , I've got only one fast twist muzzie and that one is getting sold as well !

Why complicate the experience with a gun that is finicky about it's diet if a PRB will work just as well at the distances we normally hunt.

I like your idea in theory but I don't practice it. I tinker and cannot leave well enough alone.

The point of this thread is someone should buy that gun. It's easily worth $500 +.

I was actually considering bidding on it, but went with the MR, because that Renegade is going to be a bit heavy.

I already have 2 .50 cal Hawkens. One of them is a T/C.

I was going to buy it, and put a peep sight on it. Then add swivel studs for a sling, and a Limbsaver recoil pad.

Those GM barrels are so accurate.

Yes there is no denying that , my most accurate muzzleloader sports a GM barrel.

It's going to kill me if it sells for its present price. It's been stuck on that price for 6 days.

That auction has the 15 min rule, so there's nothing to be gained by bidding at the last minute. It should be getting bids now if it's going higher.

Pete,
That rifle looks mint all the way around. If I didn't already have one I would have bid and kept bidding if necessary. That's going to be a big deal for some one.

Someone finally bid on it. I hope it gets bid up to a good price. Then I won't feel so bad.


I posted this on HuntingNet too. Maybe I got someone bidding on it. Very Happy

Someone got it for $355. A bone stock Renegade is worth more than that in that condition. The barrel cost $220. If I didn't buy the MR, I would have bid up another $100 on it.

Someone should be happy.

So, you were the second bidder that stopped bidding? I wonder if the winner saw my threads. Him and you were the only ones to start bidding after I posted about the auction.

I watched the last 20 minutes of the auction. I'm glad I didn't have the money, because it was killing me to not bid. If the barrel had been the GM PRB barrel. I never would have bought the MR, and I would have won that auction.

It's hard to say how bad the winner would have gone. he might have really wanted it, and had a high limit.

I know if it had the PRB barrel I would have gone to $500. I think it was worth that.
