    Any guys here have a Winchester Apex Muzzleloader? How do you like it? How much did you pay for it?

    My neighbor is selling his for $200 with a Pine Ridge 2.5-7 scope. I know it's not the greatest scope but I have heard good things about the Apex. I have also read some reviews and most people like it.

    I am not looking to spend alot on a muzzleloader or I would buy a TC because I will only be using it a couple of times a season. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

    Buddy has one. Been a good MZ rifle. Pretty accurate, but heavy compared to my TC Omega. Walmart has the TC Omega kit on closeout for $280, less the $50 rebate ($230 net) but you will need to add a scope. Or the Triumph (which you can't use to hunt in MA as its a breakopen) for $275.

    Thanks, I agree with you on the weight. It is definitely heavier. Thanks for the info on the TC from Walmart. I will have to take a look.

    I have one, it’s a nice entry level ML, but you can probably find one for less online, new. Do not put in more then 100 grains of powder, I have heard stories of the Muzzle blowing up. I went out and bought a TC Omega, a much better shooter then the Winchester.

    I wouldnt classify the Omega as a lightweight gun. I have one and I really like it but I wish a shorter barreled version was available that would lop off a lb. or so.

    Didn't say the Omega was lightweight, just that it is definitely lighter than the Winchester APEX...

    Seabrook, NH had 2 Traditions Optima's on closeout. The Epping store had more of a selection but no TC's left.
