Default Recommend a new MZ?

I am in need of a new MZ.
The problems with the Traditions Vortek I've had for 9 years continue to stack up, and I am done with them.
The Remington UML looks interesting, but is HEAVY; 8.5lbs for just the base rifle. The CVA Accura seems to fit the bill.

Looking for accuracy, good quality, good customer support. No smokeless., of course
Recommendations?

I won a CVA Accura last year and used it to take my Utah ML buck last fall. It is a great shooting rifle. Take down for cleaning is easy also, just unscrew the breach plug. It came with a Leupold scope on it and there are no external sights so it is limited in the number of states that I can use it for ML hunts. But when I sighted it in it was quite accurate out to 200 yards, which is as far as I shot it. I broke the forearm where the sling swivel mounts when I was sighting it in. A quick email to CVA customer service, a couple of photos sent and I had a new forearm in the mail to me. I just have to remember if shooting off of bags to place that sling swivel forward of the bags.

I also have a Thompson Center Triumph that is quite nice also. It has front and rear sights which makes it legal in my home state of Colorado. I shoot 250 and 300 grain Thor bullets out of it and it is as accurate as far as I can see with open sights. I haven't dealt with their customer service since they sold out to S&W but it should be no problems.

I’ve been happy with my Accura V2. No experience with the Remington.

I have both a knight ultra lite and the new cva paramount pro. Accuracy is pretty good in the knight and it's joy to pack around. My CVA Paramount Pro will shoot single hole groups at 200 is moa at 300 and holds 10" to 12" at 500 yards. There's plenty of rifles out there that don't produce that kind of accuracy. It's heavier but shoots loads of 105gr by wieght of blackhorn 209 which would be less fun to shoot in a ultra lite muzzleloader. Of course the downside is a hefty purchase price tag and need of a quality scope.

I shoot the older Remington 700ML, but I did the badger ridge bolt mod kit on it. Its a lovely rifle. Killed a crapton of animals with it.

My son bought a used 700ML, killed a couple things with it. He just bought a Accura and would be willing to sell his 700ML (stainless steel / black stock).

Accura's seem to be the bomb though as far as new rifles.

I've been happy with my Accura but I'm far from an expert.

CVA, T/C Pro hunter, White, Austin/Hallek are what I have in my arsenal for ML rifles. They fit my liking and are accurate.

I have an Accura MR and it is awesome. Light to carry, accurate, and points well. Easy to take apart and clean.

I'd give the CVA Accura MR a good look. Good reports and easy to take care of.

I've been out of the muzzy game for a few years, but have had excellent results with CVA in the past.
