I was given a CVI eclipse .50 cal muzzle loader last winter, and because I had so much going on at the time, I put it in the safe and basically forgot about it until now. Now that I'm caught up, I got a chance to really look it over, I develop an interest in it. But I know as much about muzzle loaders as I do aerospace engineering. I do know (because it point blank state it on the rifle) that it is black powder only. Can any one tell me much about it? Is it worth anything? Some do's and don'ts, Is it safe to use a synthetic black powder? Any info will be greatly appreciated. ps I have a pic of it but am not sure how to attach it to a thread, however I do have a pic of it on my profile if any one wants to see it.
