Please Read This Warning
These guns are antiques, most are made of poor quality metal and are not safe to shoot with any ammo, old or new. Please do not fire any gun without prior inspection by a qualified gunsmith. Some of these items are 150 years old, they are intended for display only. Modern muzzleloaders are inspected here, however we do not warranty their safety. Please have any gun, not just ours, inspected by a gunsmith prior to use and also use common safety precautions. Look for bore obstructions, use proper ammo, wear safety glasses and hearing protection, and make sure you are shooting in a safe location with a good backstop. Antique ammo is for collecting, it may not go bang. Even modern ammo is not without defects. The modern ammo we sell is expected to work in proper guns, however sometimes even factories can make a round that will not fire.
