With this launch Knight announces a brand new rifle, the "Mountaineer". This rifle has been in the works since before Knight was acquired last March.Brand manager, Gordy Edwards says, "I believe this rifles performance will surpass even the best of rifles manufactured in the past, with the unique ignition system built around the use of Blackhorn 209 powder, we are very excited about it."
"We've already received great feedback and anticipation from customers who haven't been able to purchase a Knight for the past 2 years'" says Sam Brocato, sales manager.
Knight Rifles plans to begin production in February with shipments beginning in May.
