I bought the T/C Triumph when they first came out. What attracted me to it was the ease of cleaning advertised. I would rather spend more time enjoying my muzzleloader than cleaning it.

They say you can just remove the breech plug with your fingers easily but this is not always the case. If you shoot over 7 or 8 times with it you are going to have a harder tug getting it out. And that’s swiping the barrel between shots.

The other odd thing about this ML is the fact that Winchester triple seven 209s do not fit. The primer will go in the breech plug but will not allow you to close the barrel. I had to take the Winchesters back and get the Remington Kleanbore 209′s before I could fire it.

With those issues the pros still outweigh the cons. This is a very accurate, easy to shoot ML.

Pros

  • Quick to clean/load
  • Accurate
  • No misfires
  • WeatherShield barrel
  • No Tools
  • Good Trigger

Cons

  • Breech plug is not always easy to remove because it fouls fairly quickly and picky on what 209s it will take.

Some Other Reviews from Muzzleloaders

Knight LK-93 .50 Caliber Inline Muzzleloader
The Knight LK-93 was my first ML to take into the deer hunting woods. I bought it used and it had not been took care of by the previous owner. I ended up having to buy a new nibble because the one in it was so corroded.

CVA .45 Caliber Muzzleloader
I have a CVA muzzleloader and for the money it is a really great gun. I have a .45 cal. and like it alot. CVA also makes a .50 cal.

CVA Wolf .50 Caliber Inline Muzzleloader
The CVA Wolf Break Open Muzzleloader is a good beginners rifle. Inexpensive to buy and a lot of fun to shoot. Uses 209 primers for ignition.
