I have no experience with them but I hear good reports about them. The only knock I hear is that crazy second "safety" Knight put on their inlines. If you plan to hunt with any muzzle loader this spring I strongly suggest you get one soon and learn to load and care for it. Do a search for Knight or muzzle loader to see what pops up as I think there are several posts about this shotgun. Sorry I can't be much help with this shotgun but it is just not my style.

A ML shotgun is a little different than a ML rifle. You may need to play with the wads and powder / shot ratio a little. I use and equal amount of powder to shot BY Volume as a starter. Also Knight is back in business if you want to go new.
Below is a link to October Country in Idaho. Bought some flints and one of their hunting bags, good people to deal with.

'Hello Powderhead. I have a knight tk2000.If you are close to Stillwater, Oklahoma come by and check it out. What I like was the card cutter they threw in so you do not have to keep going back to but cards when you can cut em at home. I'm a .50 cal man myself. I keep promising I'll get it out and try it but never do.

I'll sell it to you for my cost...brand new never been fired...or even had the factory sealer cleaned so it can be fired....if ya are close I'll give ya a keg of powder, horn, and a goodie bag they give you with it.
