INTRODUCING THE MARKESBERYTM
ADVANCED MUZZLELOADING SYSTEM
No other muzzleloading system in history has ever been designed and built to be as "user friendly" as the
Advanced Muzzleloader System (AMS) from MarkesberyTM Muzzle Loaders, Inc. Never before has there been
such a complete system that is as versatile with as many optional interchangeable barrels...as performance
minded to deliver the accuracy and knock down power demanded by today's muzzleloading hunter...as well
balanced for exceptional handling characteristics...as precision engineered for a lifetime of trouble free
service...as solidly constructed using the absolute finest materials and component parts available today...or
as easy to maintain for a more enjoyable black powder shooting experience.
Others in the muzzleloading industry make similar claims, but fail to measure up to the MarkesberyTM Advanced
Muzzleloading System. Take a look at these outstanding features and you're sure to agree that nothing else
compares to a MarkesberyTM Muzzleloading Rifle when it comes to Quality...Craftsmanship...Accuracy!
W. Russell Markesbery
President & CEO
True interchangeable barrel pillar mount system that never changes "zero"...no matter how many times a barrel is removed from the receiver and replaced. Each barrel features its own sights and set of pre drilled and tapped holes for scope installation
Rifles and optional barrels available in .36, .45, .50, & .54 caliber along with removable stainless steel breech plug.
Premium quality, precision rifled Green Mountain Barrels are standard on all models, available in blued, matte, or stainless steel.
All models feature the MarkesberyTM "Outer-LineTM" Magnum Ignition System, along with the reliable "Spit-FireTM" nipple at a 450 angle to the rear of the breech plug for positive, spontaneous ignition. (Note: This percussion ignition system is just as reliable as any true in-line ignition system, but is still legal where State Regulations prohibit the use of "in-line percussion" rifles)
Fast 1 in 26 inches rate of rifling twist for superior accuracy with widest possible range of sabot and maximum performance heavy lead conical bullets.
Rock solid adjustable Williams Rear Sight standard on rifle barrels with front Firesights.
Other Great Features
Receiver and most other components produced through precision investment casting for exacting tolerances.
Constructed of eight investment casted precision parts.
Perfect balance, with the steadiest and quickest aimpoint. Thanks to the MarkesberyTM design, these rifles are a full 4" shorter than other muzzleloaders with same 24 inch length barrel.
All models feature a double safety system consisting of half cock hammer safety and cross bolt safety to insure safe operation
Crisp, clean trigger with factory setting of 2 3/4 pounds
Solid anodized aluminum ramrod that's drilled and tapped for combination brass cleaning jag and bullet starter (standard equipment with each muzzleloader).
Every MarkesberyTM Rifle can be switched over to super hot primer ignition in just minutes by installing the optional MarkesberyTM 400 SRP Magnum Ignition System.
Depending on model, MarkesberyTM rifles are available in choice of one-piece design in walnut, several different stylish laminated woods, camo patterns or with a top quality Bell & Carson composite stock (black, crotch walnut or camouflage).
Stock selection includes standard pistol grip or thumbhole and Monte Carlo design.
Wide choice of stocks insures there is a grip shape...comb configuration...wood or composite stock to fill practically every shooters need.
Stocks built with standard 14" length of pull.
Strong sling swivel studs come installed.

This system replaces the nipple of any MarkesberyTM KM Rifle and can be installed in less than two minutes. The optional 400 SRP (Small Rifle Primer) Magnum Ignition System puts upward of ten times the fire into the powder charge compared to standard No. 11 percussion caps. The hotter ignition is needed to insure full consumption of heavy 150 grain Pyrodex bullet loads, loaded with a 250 grain Beast Buster Bullet delivering velocity of over 2000 (FPS) feet per second. The system is virtually weatherproof and totally eliminates the chance of foul weather misfires.
RELIABILITY...ACCURACY...AND GAME TAKING PERFORMANCE ARE OUR GOALS
All of us at MarkesberyTM Muzzleloaders, Inc., take our hunting seriously and like you, we don't want to leave anything to chance. Our rifles have been designed and built with optimum reliability, precise shot placement and devastating knockdown punch in mind. When you have just one shot between you and taking the game your after...we want it to be a sure shot.
Like our muzzleloaders, we continue to develop a line of accessories which will make loading, shooting, and maintaining these guns even easier than it is already. No one in the muzzleloading gun making business manufactures their own saboted bullets! Most manufacturers package the best reasonable quality bullet they can get at the lowest price. Not at MarkesberyTM Muzzleloaders, Inc., we simply offer the best bullets...and every MarkesberyTM Rifle is capable of shooting honest 1-1/2" groups at 100 yards once an optimum load has been developed for a particular rifle.
