Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by TERRIBLE i recently purchased one of these and it was the worst purchase ever. i thought it was good untill i shot it twice after the second shot the cap got stuck in the breech plug. i bent my capping tool trying to get the cap out. i ended up getting pliers to get the cap out. i would recommend anything but this. January 31, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shoots Awesome This gun is a great shooter. I let my brother shoot it a couple times and he didn't believe me when i told him I paid under $150 for it. It's as accurate and easy to use as guns that are 2-3 times as much money. The first day out I shot 3 shots to get the scope hitting the bullseye at 40 yds then moved the target to 100yds and was shooting inside a 2" group for my next 10 shots. The only thing I found odd was sometimes after firing the bolt would go back open, and sometimes it would be closed against the primer, or half open with the primer smashed sideways in the chamber. I assume the shot was forcing the primer backwards and pushing the bolt open, which would sometimes catch in the "open" position. The kick with 100gr of 777 pellets and a 245gr powerbelt was about half that of a 3" 12 gauge shell. January 14, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by the best gun i bought for the price If you are looking to buy a deer gun or just one too give to you kid or for a gift this is the one I put a small box up at 100 yards and shot it and hit where I wanted to!GOOD FOR DEER HEAD SHOOTING March 28, 2009
Rated 3 out of 5 by semi good gun a bought this gun in january and i have had to replace the rear sight the front sight and i got tired of that so i bought a scope for it ever since it has been a great gun October 16, 2008

A: 
No I don't believe it is. Your looking for a flintlock I think. This shoots with a 209 shotgun primer. it goes in the breech, and the firing pin hits it through a tiny hole which ignites the powder then pushes out the slug or ball.

A: 
This is a magnum rifle. You can load it up 150 grains of black powder and, topped with a heavy bullet it bucks pretty good.

I shoot mine with my standard hunting load - 110 grains of BP and 348 grain bullet and it kicks about like a 12 gauge with 2 3/4 target loads. Even then it is a softer kick because the powder charge burns slower than smokeless powder.

A: 
First start out and run 3 primers through it to burn the oil out of the barrel. Drop in you charge (150grain) push your shot down. Put a primer in, and you are ready to go. After you shoot it, wait for all the embers to die in the barrel, and repeat the process.

I am new at muzzleloading. What scope, mounts, powder, bullets, etc are recommended for the Buckhorn 209? I would like to purchase everything at once so I don't go on a hunt and find out that I lack something I need.

A: 
Buy the CVA rifle/Konus scope kit if you can find it. You won't be able to touch the price of the components bought seperately.If not, buy the DuraSight scope mount CVA recommends and only a scope made for a muzzleloader.

Stick with 100 grm loads as the 150 grm loads tend to cause the groups to be wider. The IMR white hots worked great for me with the Hornady 300 gr SST sabots. Buy the CVA deluxe cleaning kit with the range rod, bore cleaner gel, rust preventer, and various brushes. Also get the loader kit with the loader and different bullet nipples. You want to use the correct nipple for the type of bullet you choose. Lastly, I bought some of the foam bore cleaner. It works while you clean the rest of the gun. Also get the 500 count bag of patches.

Be ready, you will spend all most as much on supplies as you spent on the gun.

A: 
I have the same rifle & I use Powerbelt bullets, I think they're 145 gr, Triple 7 powder, I use 100 to 150 gr, with Winchester shotgun primers. I think the gun can only handle 150 gr of powder, not for sure because I got mine used & it never came with a manuel. I shoot it out to 50 yards & it is putting 1 1/2, 2in groups. I never shoot beyond that because my food plot is only 40x40 yards. Great gun for the money. If this was not of any help give your local BPS a call & hopefully they can answer all your questions that you may have.

A: 
This is just the gun by itself. However, most combo packs include the most cheaply-produced accessories available. CVA's combo packs include usable scopes and loading accessories, but I've found I can shop the web to find better optics, bullets, and so on, for around the same money as the difference in price between the rifle and the combo package. Not to impugn CVA's choice of what to include, but I'd rather keep that extra money in my pocket to use on a scope or bullets that are more in tune with my individual preferences. For example, the woods I hunt won't ever allow more than a 100 yard shot. Therefore, I'd rather have a high-quality 1.75-4x32mm scope than a department-store special 3-9x40mm with a less-sharp focus at close range, poor light transmission, more magnification than I can use at the high end and too much for the "He's Right Under My Stand!!!" shots at the low end. And every rifle is different in what it likes to be fed; so rather than pay for a bunch of bullets that the manufacturer includes because they happen to make and market them too, again I'd rather take my money somewhere I can see other options on the shelf. And at $179, you're getting enough accuracy out of this rifle that I'd consider it a bargain even if it came without sights or a ramrod!

A: 
Take the cap off the back of the barrel where the rounded plug is w/ the allen head in it & unscrew that to take it out & take the guts out it & take the breech plug wrench & unscrew that & that givs you access to the inside of the barrel. Get some good cleaner & breech plug grease & you should be good to go.
