Youth muzzleloader options

5 posts in this topic

Hello all

Any input on best starter muzzleloader for a 12 yr old? Not looking for a sniper rifle, just a good, basic, modest weight, easy to handle muzzy good to 50 yds. He also is a lefty, which makes things more interesting. He will be using it for the muzzy season, so no scope. Looking forward to hearing what has worked for your kids.

Thanks

I don't have experience setting a kid up for muzzleloading, but I am a lefty and use a CVA Kodiak pro; the stock is made to be ambidexterous, it fits me well. They are pretty reasonably priced also. You could research the recoil difference between a 45 caliber and a 50, maybe the 45 kicks substantially less, but I have never checked into that.

I'd suggest the Kodiak. I found an used and wow good deal for 100 bucks. I suggest them because they used to have external safety's.

I started my father in it and I think he's probable more of a kid then yours... We did put a Limb Saver Pad on the back end of it so it would kick less. Don't know why he was soo scared of a 50 cal when he's shot 12 ga before and was over 300 lbs at the time. Make it fun and hopefully it will take off.
