The smallest I've seen is .36 and .32, these were flintlock or cap styles. Does anyone make a .22 muzzle loader of any style? Mac

Cabelas sold one many years ago They showed it in there catalog with a small write up. I just do not remenber what year it was but I'm thinking it was in the early 80's. It may have been this gun below.
This is not my write up!
Rocky Mountain Arms muzzleloader
Several years ago, I was fortunate to acquire a rather rare gun. It doesn't look like much at first glance, but when the truth of what it can do sinks in, you'll realize that this is a very pivotal piece of shooting hardware.
Rocky Mountain Arms Corp. made this muzzleloading .22 caliber lead ball shooter. It uses toy caps to ignite a small charge of black powder.
That round block is the breech. When unlocked, it turns toward you so the gunpowder and a lead ball can be inserted. When rotated back into this position, it locks in place and a toy cap is inserted behind the knurled ring at the back of the breech. Then, cock the hammer and fire.
The rifle is an inexpensive little .22 caliber muzzleloader designed for kids. A pivoting breech swings open to the side for the powder and a ball to be inserted. It's called a muzzleloader because the ball is rammed into the firing chamber from the front - just like loading the cylinder on a cap and ball revolver. After loading, the breech is swung back into alignment with the barrel and locked in place. The final step is to insert a cap from a cap gun in the holder behind the breech. The strike of the hammer sets off the cap, which sets off the black powder charge, propelling the lead ball on its way.

Handyman, Years ago, I handled one of those little Rocky Mountain 22 cal muzzle loaders, and was quite intrigued with it. I had a chance to buy it cheap but didn't. Now I wish I would have.

Now, I am going to have to look for one!!!

Thanks Mac Mc Cann, for starting something (I guess)!!!

Ken

They have probably made a lot of different types of guns over the years including military weapons and pellet guns that are powered by blanks.
I have heard about a Mendoza muzzle loader once before but I think that they're uncommon.

Not a rifle but a .22 cal cap and ball none the less.

Well, I found quite a few question and answer posts about the Rocky Mountain rifle we speak of, and also some pictures that are exactly like the one I handled (or should I say "mis-handled"). Of course, I found none for sale. One guy showed that there were 3 total that showed up on Gunbroker over the years?
All of the were in the $150.00 + price range!
From what I gather, none are still being made. Also, this gun was designed by Casull (sp) of the 445 Casull inventor! I think that the name Dick Casull was somehow a name I saw on the box or the rifle that I didn't buy!!!

Sooner or later, one of us will see one for sale, and of course we/I will let the rest of you guys know. Maybe after I own it!!!!!

It is snowing out today so I think I will continue my search,

Ken

There a variety of custom 25 and 29 caliber traditional muzzleloaders about. The general finding is that they suffer greatly in any sort of wind and are best in still times @ 25 yards.
