Probably NOT, once it's loaded and has a live CAP/PRIMER on it....it's a weapon. The key is the cap/primer.

What are you researching?

Mt is a long way from Maryland

I personally feel a convicted felon has no business here in this form

further more your last post still leaves me confused about hand gun sales between private parties.

Something is fishy here and it's not me

Muzzleloaders are considered unloaded if the ignition system is disabled by removal of the cap, primer, battery, or primer powder.

I think it's not a firearm until it's loaded. Don't remember where I read that.

Yes it is legal to hunt with a muzzleloader if you are a convicted felon.

I heard in North Carolina, as long as its a reproduction that uses the winged caps its legal for felons, or so I was told by someone on the internet, so it must be true. I really don't have any worries about that sorta thing good to be clean.

Maryland does not regulate (most) long guns, just handguns and "assault rifles."
Federal law says that black powder and muzzleloading firearms are antiques and/or replicas and are therefore NOT firearms.
An exception is BP/Muzzleloading rifle that can accept a centerfire barrel.

NOTE: In the end, 10 years and/or 250K fine is a butt kicker so check with an attorney.
