The Patriot™ Muzzleloader offers a lifetime of accuracy and durability versus the Knight TK 2000 muzzleloader.

Weight:  The Patriot™ Muzzleloader  is a lightweight powerhouse, weighing about two pounds less than the Knight TK 2000.

Caliber:  The Knight TK 2000 is a 12 Gauge shot whereas the  Patriot™ Muzzleloader out-does all muzzleloaders on the market with an interchangeable barrel available in .40 & .50 caliber.  The required full plastic jacket/discs add an extra expense to the TK 2000 that some argue is unnecessary.

Durability:   Melonite vs Chrome Lined-   One of the most distinguishing characteristics of the Patriot™  Muzzleloader rifle is its Melonite QPQ treated stainless steel barrel.   Compared to the Knight TK 2000 barrel constructed with 4140 Steel Alloy- containing chromium, molybdenum, and manganese,  the Patriot™  Melonite barrel has clear advantages for accuracy and a longer barrel life.  The Patriot™  Muzzleloader treated barrel is harder than chrome lining and offers a lower coefficient of friction, so metal-metal wear and bore friction is reduced.  The Patriot™  Muzzleloader barrel treated with Melonite QPQ alters the entire barrel surface, inside and out, rather than chrome plated treatment onto the bore/chamber of the barrel.

Maintenance:   Built to run and gun, regular cleaning is not necessary to keep the Patriot™  Muzzleloader rifle performing with accuracy and reliability.  The Knight TK 2000 Chrome Alloy Steel barrel requires regular cleaning after each shot to maintain accuracy and performance.

Stock Style:  The Patriot™ muzzle-loading rifle is available in five different hardwood laminated stocks.  The Knight TK 2000 comes with a composite stock.

Warranty:  All  Woodman Arms muzzle-loaders and rifles are backed by a Lifetime Manufacturers Guarantee. Knight offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

The Knight TK 2000 has received a 1 out of 5 star rating from muzzleloader customers at Muzzleloaders.com.   Hunters have noted that the Knight TK 2000 striker will cut a path thru your thumb if you do not wear a glove and the camo pattern literaly washe(s) off.”
