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.
