Default Muzzleloader with IRON sights?

Can anybody recommend one? I can't seem to find one that doesn't have a fiber-optic front sight.

The words "Here you go" are a clickable link in his post.

Are you only looking at in-line muzzle loaders? Those are the kind I see offered with fiber optic sights. Regular percussion and flint lock muzzle loaders usually come with iron sights.

Have you checked Dixie Gun Works web site yet?

They have at least one in-line muzzle loader with a brass bead front sight, and most (or maybe all) of their percussion rifles have iron sights.

Thompson Center made/makes some really nice traditional muzzleloaders with iron sights. The Hawken and Renegade models are excellent.

CVA made some really nice traditional muzzleloaders in the past too, here's a range report on one:

Lymans Great Plains rifle in 54 caliber is a good one. Iron sights are standard.

Savage has a nice one if you want to try and pull an M tag for deer season. You can also use modern powder.
