Welcome to Knight – The Mountaineer

Power, Style, Safety & Accuracy. Many promise they can deliver, but few actually do. What if you could have a muzzleloader that not only provided deadly stopping power, pinpoint accuracy, safety while hunting and then at the end of the day looked great hanging over the mantle? You can have that with the Mountaineer from Knight Rifles.

The Mountaineer carries all of our most detailed features. The 27” fluted Green Mountain muzzle-loader barrel catches the eye immediately, while at the same time providing accuracy with its handcrafted design. Each barrel has been hand treated with a ceramic basted bore coating that adds increased velocity and reduces the need to swab between shots. Every bolt and bold handle on a Mountaineer is individually machined, not cast, and then finished with detailed jeweling and intricate knurling, providing a touch of class to an ignition system that is easy to use and clean. The laminate straight and thumbhole stocks are not only rugged but have a timeless appearance of elegance. Each muzzleloader comes equipped with an Easton Carbon Core Ramrod, fitted with a reverse threaded solid brass jag that extends out to help safely and firmly seat your bullet. Finally, a metallic fiber optic sight set rounds out this beautiful muzzleloader that is claimed by many to be the most reliable and accurate muzzle loader on the market today.

Mountaineer Muzzleloader

Mountaineer Forest Green Straight Stock Muzzleloader comes in .45, .50, and .52 caliber options, and can be ordered with either a 209 Bare Primer ignition system, Western-legal musket cap & #11 system or our 100% waterproof/weather proof Full Plastic Jacket Technology. We are so confident in our quality and accuracy that we guarantee every Mountaineer made will have MOA accuracy up to 200 yards—something the competition can’t say. We’re also proud to say that the Mountaineer is 100% American Made—from the smallest screw and fitting to the bolt, barrel and stock.

Power, Style, Safety, Accuracy, The Mountaineer, a rifle to be passed down from father to son, for generations to come.
