For whatever reason, it's really too bad they threw in the towel..

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.

I got an email on that several weeks back. It didn't go into a lot of detail other than they tried to compete with the higher end ML's and failed. Looking back they would have stuck with simpler bread and butter models.

I have been gone from this site too long....I come back and find out that my one of my favorite ML companies went under??!!! Knight was the first ML I ever shot and has been the best by far. It had little to no recoil, awesome trigger pull right out of the box, durable, reliable, and easy to kinda ruins my day

Tony Knight was the inventor of the modern inline.His first one,the MK85,was introduce in 1985.Named after his daughter,Michelle.That is according to Randy Wakeman.Muzzleloading would not be what it is today without Tony Knight.
