I am a T/C dude myself. Just bought the triumph last year. Very easy to clean and work with. Very few moving parts. I use the the shockwave or hornady bullets. They are tougher to load but I think they shoot more consistent groups. A T/C is more expensive than the CVA though.
I use to have a Knight and it also was an accurate gun. Just a pain to clean.
As far as tips on ML. Clean, clean, clean... and make sure you seat the bullet in the same place each time.
