Whoa......... What a difference between opinions. From the experiences that I've known with the Redemption, I would NEVER recommend one. There's a long story behind this and in short, there are two of them setting in one of our sporting good stores and, they have such loose actions there's no possible way they can be accurate. LHR knew about it, but it took a couple months for them to do anything about it. They then sent screws to fix them, telling the store that they could do it. The store manager wonders, "What the h^&& are screws going to fix!" I know a couple shooters here in MI that bought them and can't get them to group less than 4" at 100yds.
Depending on that state's regulations, if the OP wants to buy a quality production muzzleloader, the T/C Pro Hunter, CVA Apex or Knight. A new semi-custom is being released now by Remington, the Remington Ultimate.
