Yes the barrel is drilled and the scope mounting process was easy. I put a 3x9 Nikon scope on it with no problem.

answer 2
The ONLY powder i use in my Impact is Blackhorn....taken many deer with it this year....but there are three things you must remember, use only 209 primers for shotguns, not the 209 primers for muzzle loaders. i use Federal 209A. Second....follow the load data on the Blackhorn website, Third..the flash hole in the breech plug Will fowl with a very hard black carbon and cause FTF fail to fire. Find a small drill bit that fits the flash hole so you can clean it about every 20 shots (do this by hand and dont remove any metal) and use a torch tip cleaner for the tiny hole in the end.

Yes, but according to Blackhorn, you can't use over 120 grains. I use 95 for deer hunting and it's very adequate.

Question

Buying a new muzzleloader?

I am buying a new muzzleloader before next years deer season and i want to make sure i am getting a muzzleloader I will be happy with. The Impact is a great price and the specs look as if they fit my needs. before spending the money i want to make sure this is a gun i will be happy with. Is there a reason this gun is priced so low or is it just that good of a deal?

answer 2
Try "EABCO" they make a rail for weaver bases that uses the stock impact hole pattern. Generally, anything that fits the Encore fits the impact.

I bought the "EABCO" rail-peep for my impact, it has an excellent peep sight and a rail for scope mounting. The one for the encore fits the impact with no mods.

You can leave the Peep on for backup. Its almost as good as a scope.

Question

Breech plug wrench, case, and primer questions.

Does the T/C Impact come with a breech plug wrench?
Does it come with and in a case?
Another commenter said to use 209 shotgun primers, not 209 muzzleloader rifle primers. I'm confused on that. Is this correct, shotgun not rifle primers? Thank you!
