2018 Washington Muzzleloader Regulation Change

2018 Washington Muzzleloader Regulation Change


In April 2018, Washington State has passed through the ability to use modern 209 primers during standard muzzleloader seasons. With these new regulations, there are a few things to keep in mind to prepare for these new changes. For hunters who have northwest regulation CVA and Knight muzzleloaders, there are a few options to convert your preexisting muzzleloader to be 209 compatible.

All CVA brand muzzleloaders manufactured after 2010 can be converted from a musket cap ignition to a 209 primer ignition. The two components that are needed is the CVA Quick Release Breech Plug and the CVA 209 Firing Pin Kit. For Knight muzzleloaders, a 209 or 209 FPJ conversion kit is required to make your rifle 209 compatible.

As of right now, there is no way to convert a Traditions Firearms muzzleloader or older Thompson Center muzzleloader from a musket cap or percussion cap ignition to a modern 209 ignition.
