Hey guys, I have a couple of 11 year olds that are interested in BP shooting. Anybody recommend a starter/youth type gun in 50cal with fiber optics. I want them to learn how to load a gun with Blackhorn 209 and learn how to seat a bullet. Any thoughts are appreciated.

CVA Wolf would be a good gun, I believe you can get a compact stock that would be shorter for it. Talk to Carlos, he might be able to help you.

The Thompson Center Impact would be a good one. It has a removable stock spacer that shortens the stock for smaller shooters if it is needed. It is very accurate, has fiber optics, and the priced reasonably. I have one for sale in the classifieds for a pretty good deal that hasn't been fired much. If I was sticking with 50 calibers I would be keeping it.

For younger kids, the Impact is the ticket. If I was starting a youngster out, that's what I'd get. The fit is the key for young small kids. TC's BP's are good for BH209 also. Some of the others manufacturers you have to purchase a BH209 capable plug extra. 

Take a look at that used one.

Impact or Wolf. Both should be in most ML gun stores. If this is not a Christmas present, take them to the store for sizing-up.

Thanks for the info. Not a gift, just looking for something to enjoy with the kids.

Either one would be a great gun, both are very accurate and easy on the pocket book, the T/C that's for sale is a good price.

Pam and I are at our hunting cabin in SE Alabama. We stopped by a local sporting goods store in a small town (pop 125). He had two muzzleloaders on the rack. One was a CVA Wolf. We walked out with it for 185.00 tax included. It's warm and the deer are not moving, but I thought this was a good buy.

I hunt with a CVA Wolf and you are in for a pleasant surprise...nice trigger, reliable, compact and very accurate. I've always been a traditional muzzleloader and thought these modern inlines were cheating being that I'm from PA. Live in NY now and decided to give one a try. If you want to put meat on the table, these are the way to go. Never thought I'd say that nor use one, but it's true and I like mine.
