Arrowhead-Muzzleloader jpeg crop.jpg

Our Rokstaffer @Travis Bertrand has been telling me about this company since last fall. They build a sweet muzzleloader system that takes accuracy to a whole new level.

We caught up with Luke Horak-owner of Arrowhead Muzzleloaders--at the Western Hunting & Conservation Expo and got a tour of his guns (video here). They're like nothing I've ever seen. It's a complete system including custom bullets and accessories (and they even build some top-notch centerfire rifles.) You'll see Luke on the forums as "Arrowhead Rifles"

We worked out a sponsorship deal that includes testing a few of his rifles. Travis Bertrand and @dirtytough both are buying some guns (at a writer's discount) and will be testing and depending on the draws, will be hunting with Arrowhead muzzleloaders this fall.

There will be a few states where these guns won't be legal in a muzzleloader-only hunt, but Luke can work with you to make sure you know where you can hunt with the gun. Off the top of my head, NV, UT, NM, AZ, CO will allow the gun, although you couldn't run a scope in a few of those.

So if you're looking to take your muzzleloader game to a new orbit, give Arrowhead a look. Here is a video that gives an overview of this system.

Appreciate the offer, but I'm planning on drawing THOSE tags! So don't make any plans. 🤣
I would like to offer my free testing services on a NM Muzzy Elk or Mule Deer tag I plan
on drawing this fall. Just as a welcoming gesture...…... Welcome.

Flak - if you draw a premium tag, I’ll loan you mine.....500 yard shots are a chip shot. And you may get a free pack out....lol.

What suggestions do you all have for open sights on the Remington 700 Ultimate with factory barrel?

I have a brand new muzzy and I ordered all associated hardware from Luke at Arrowhead. Planning for Colorado for the fall.

What do you all recommend for a peep and front globe for this rifle? I would love to have a setup similar to the Williams sight that fits the CVAs with the picatinny rear rail so I can mount a scope without having to remove the peep.

XS makes a peep that fits a pic rail. It does raise your height a lot though, so you need to find a ramp/sight combo that gets the right elevation. Sorry, I don't know what that combo is for the UML.

On my custom builds for guys that want a fixed sight option, I do a dovetail cut in barrel and use a lee shaver 17A front sight. For Travis' build, he's using the XS rear sight and we had to get a riser block for the front sight to get enough height as sight line is approximately 1.5" above bore centerline.

Hopefully that all makes sense. These stupid fixed sights are actually a lot more complicated than mounting a scope lol.

I've found the CS guys at XS sight (probably way too modern of a term as it seems I'm just talking to guys in the shop when I call) are top notch in helping you figure out sight height ratios of front to back. Just give yourself a few weeks lead time so they can get you lined out with parts. In short, they cut the learning curve drastically and really know what they're doing.
