Shot Show 2023 range day was our first opportunity to get hands-on with Uintah Precision’s new Modern Sporting Muzzleloader. Built on an AR lower receiver its aim is to bring a modern touch to the muzzleloader market. I had a chance to get a closer look at this new muzzleloader and speak with Uintah employees about the rifle at this year’s Industry Day at the Range.
[SHOT 2023] Hands-On with Uintah Precision’s Modern Sporting MuzzleloaderHere’s the product description for the Modern Sporting Muzzleloader.
Hit all the hunts with our Modern Sporting Muzzleloader and run your semi-auto upper on it in the off season.
Utilizing the same upper receiver from our True Bolt Action UPR-15 uppers, we offer our Modern Sporting Muzzleloader. Our muzzleloader features a Preferred Barrels 416R Stainless Steel barrel. The 24″, .45 Caliber, 1-20 twist barrel is Cerakoted black and comes with our ultra effective 2 port muzzle brake which will allow you to be able to push the limits of accuracy in a muzzleloader. The upper is made from American 6061 billet aluminum with a picatinny rail along the top and a 15″ MLOK handguard with attachment points at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. Secured in place along the top of the barrel is an aluminum ramrod with a brass jag. The 4140 American Steel bolt features dual extractors to ensure that spent primers don’t get stuck. Ignition is from a standard 209 primer.
Uintah Precision is currently selling the complete rifle for $1,776 or just the upper receiver for $1,098. With the ability to customize ergonomics and controls, this looks to be the best of both worlds. Special thank you to the Uintah Precision staff for taking the time to walk me through this new product. TFB and TFBTV’s coverage of SHOT Show 2023 is proudly sponsored by 5.11 Tactical.

The lower receiver is our UP-15 6061 billet aluminum “mil-spec” lower. The lowers are built out with a Velocity “Classic” 3lbs single stage trigger, Magpul K2+ grip and Magpul PRS Lite buttstock. The Velocity trigger has no take up and breaks like a glass rod.
The PRS Lite stock allows the user to adjust the cheek riser height as well as the length of pull and the rubberized texture of the K2+ grip ensures a non slip surface.
Our Complete Modern Sporting Muzzleloader ships in a Plano, All Weather, rolling, double rifle case, so there is enough room for all of your accessories and peripherals.
*This complete Muzzleloader rifle must ship to an FFL as it is built with an AR15 lower, which is considered to be a firearm.
