Muzzleloaders

Some still consider patience a virtue. Thompson/Center muzzleloader hunters know it’s not just the gear you put on, but the time you put in. When you hunt for the moments, and you only get one shot, make it count with T/C’s muzzleloaders.

A Legacy Like No Other Technology Leader. Industry Pioneer.

In 1970, Thompson/Center entered a muzzleloading market that had minimal interest and no real muzzleloader that stood for quality. With its modern designs, extreme accuracy at extended ranges, and easy cleaning, T/C quickly established itself as the undisputed category leader, and since then has taken the sport of muzzleloader hunting to soaring new heights.

Challenge Accepted

The sport of black powder hunting draws the adventure seekers. But T/C muzzleloader hunters are in it for the challenge — not the frustration. With an extensive array of black powder accessories that complement T/C’s line of quality muzzleloaders, hunters get more out of their one-shot, one-opportunity with Thompson/Center.

A Modern Take on a Classic Passion

Used to be, black powder hunting was defined by the hassle it required and the mess it left behind. Over the years, T/C has introduced new technology to make muzzleloading less strenuous and more accessible for more hunters, directly contributing to the tremendous growth of the sport seen over the last 40-plus years.

Second Shot in Seconds

With a convenient low profile T-handle power rod and false muzzle, Quick Load Accurizor (QLA) design, loading your muzzleloader is quicker and less painful than ever. T/C’s Power Rod is a patented pivoting handle that is integrated with a solid aluminum ramrod, and QLA effortlessly aligns the projectile with the rifling for improved accuracy and faster reloading.

What Recoil?

Featuring our patented recoil management system, T/C's  muzzleloading rifles absorb shock and vibration. It takes the bite out of felt recoil by 43% and reducing muzzle rise, producing optimal control and comfort every shot, every hunt.

One Chance.
One Rifle.

Thompson/Center hunters know the importance of each shot, and when it comes to their firearms, they aren’t willing to compromise on quality. T/C delivers muzzleloaders that combine better quality components with higher tolerance barrels, to deliver unmatched consistency the most demanding hunters can rely on.

On Point Accuracy and Pricing

Accuracy. Consistency. Performance. These are the qualities that have always been built into T/C’s entire muzzleloading product line, and always will. A pioneer and a leader in the sport of hunting, we take pride in delivering uncompromised products at a fair price.

No Tools. No Mess.

Keeping your muzzleloader clean over the course of its life is key to maintaining its accuracy. To make this process easier, T/C’s Speed Breech XT® quick release breech plug can be removed by turning it only 90 degrees, eliminating the struggle of seized breech plugs. The XT reduces fouling by 95%, needs no cleaning, never seizes, and can easily be removed by hand.
