They made a .45 wolverine with a contoured barrel and no open sights. It had a 1 in 30 inch twist.

Not sure the twist but I believe its brand new. A Knightaholic may know by zooming in on the serial #.

Maybe this is the seller that had them mismarked a while back. Pretty good deal though and will accept a Lehigh plug. Wouldn't it be cleaner then a Wolverine? Are the Elites not conical shooters?

Sure they will. That's what GM-54 is shooting them with.

So the one Omega found is a elite? they have it listed as a extreme.aren't both 1:30? i was just asking about the wolverine OMEGA. i would rather have a disc and apparently the wolverine didn't have sights and i want to shoot with a peep. Ray

Sorry but I do not know anything about Wolverine's. Personally I like my MK-85's and my LRH. I still think the MK-85 is the finest rifle Knight ever made for hunting. I do like my LRH but as far as a straight hunting rifle the MK-85 is a better choice(IMO). Especially when carrying the rifle for any period of time. And I like their laminated stocks. And as stated before I like the musket cap ignition better than the 209 or the standard caps.

I would not get so hung up on an exact twist rate. I think you will find all the Knight's will shoot a properly sized conical very very very well. Tom.
