The Patriot™ Muzzleloader rifle out-classes muzzleloaders with advanced engineering and design that cuts no corners compared to other rifles.  Here is a comparison of the Patriot™ by Woodman Arms and the Thompson Center muzzleloader.   

Weight:  The Patriot™ Muzzleloader is lighter to carry compared to the Thompson Center Triumph out of the box.

Caliber:  The Patriot™ Muzzleloader out-does muzzleloaders on the market with an interchangeable barrel available in .40 & .50 caliber. The T/C muzzloader comes in .50 caliber.

Durability:   The Patriot™  Muzzleloader rifle features a Melonite QPQ interior and exterior treated stainless steel barrel.   Compared to the T/C Weathershield exterior treatment the Patriot™  Melonite barrel has clear advantages for accuracy and a longer barrel life.  The Patriot™  Muzzleloader barrel treated with Melonite QPQ alters the entire barrel surface, inside and out, rather than an exterior treated barrel guarding against weather alone.

Maintenance:   While T/C boasts easy breech removal and cleaning, extensive maintenance is not necessary to keep the Patriot™  Muzzleloader rifle performing with accuracy and reliability compared to the Stainless steel T/C muzzleloader.

Stock Style:  The Patriot™ muzzle-loading rifle is available in five different hardwood laminated stocks.   T/C Bone Collector is available in silver/black and camo.

Warranty:  All  Woodman Arms muzzle-loaders and rifles are backed by a Lifetime Manufacturers Guarantee.  According to their website, T/C offers a Lifetime Warranty but details were  not found at the link provided on the T/C website at the time of this publication.
