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

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.

What!!

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 reload.....wow...that 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.

Another company bit by the recession I reacon. Too bad he couldnt have patented the in-line, he'd be on top still. One problem I see is the discs that you have to have to shoot the thing. I didnt like the idea of having to buy them from the company and glad I got a CVA and now a TC Encore. He may have actually held a patent on in-lines but sold it to others I dont know.
