    What caliber did you get in it? Isnt that the gun where you can swap out barrel and shoot different calibers. I havent heard anything bad about them.

    Congrats on the new omega, havent heard any complaints from my friends that have them. Derby I think you are thinking of the tc encore not sure if the omega will exchange them also.


    And madkat I have a question how will you sighting in your buddys rifle work for him? Everyone looks down the barrell at different angles but thats a neat trick if you want to use it for Deer season. LOL

    I got a question for all you muzzleloading experts. I have a friend that works in a local gun shop. Every once in awhile someone will walk in and sell them their guns dirt cheap for whatever reason. Well this year he brought me a Traditions Alpha Mag 209 bolt action .50 cal and told me to try it out this year. Well, I zeroed it and compared to my older CVA stag horn or TC Hawken it works like a dream. I've never been much of a Traditions fan, but this is really a nice rifle and he only wanted 50 bucks for it. So needless to say it's now mine. LOL I really like the bolt action on it. Much safer in my opinion. And it's got a nice thick, but not quite a bull barrel on it. Much less kick than my other muzzleloaders. Anyway, I can find nothing on the internet about this particular model Traditions Rifle. I can't even get Traditions to answer any emails about it. Which is kind of amazing to me. My friend seems to think it's a Bait Pro Shop only model. Anybody ever heard of this model before?

    Tim, thanks for the effort. Wonder why they won't answer? LOL From what I see in this rifle they make a pretty good product, at least on the high end of their offerings. I found one add for a used one someone was selling. The picture he had posted of his had the user manuals with it and they said Lighting Bolt Action rifle. So I'm assuming it was made for for Bait Pro Shops under a different model name. Now if I can find the user manual for the right one. LOL Oh well, it works and is a really nice rifle in my opinion. Again Thanks Tim.

    Why don't you just call bass pro and talk to them about it. If it was made for them or at least you think it was. I'm sure someone in there smokepole area knows a little more.
