    From what I read in the Iowa state law, muzzle loaders in the state of Iowa would be considered a firearm.

    Copied from Iowa State law on:


    An antique firearm is any firearm (including any firearm with

    a matchlock, flintlock, percussion cap, or similar type of ignition

    system) manufactured in or before 1898 or a replica of an antique

    firearm if the replica is not designed or redesigned to use conventional

    rimfire or centerfire ammunition or if the replica uses only rimfire

    or centerfire fixed ammunition which is no longer manufactured in

    the United States and which is not readily available in the ordinary

    channels of commercial trade.

    Antique and replica firearms are exempt from the permit to

    purchase requirement. The same laws on carrying that apply to

    modern firearms apply to antique and replica firearms.

    @ Gambler. For your information many states do not consider antique or replicas as firearms.

    From Texas State law:


    Antique or curio guns manufactured before 1899 and

    replicas thereof which do not use rim fire or center fire ammunition

    are not included in the definition of “firearm” as

    it is used in Texas Penal Code Title 10, Chapter 46, which

    governs weapons.

    A firearm is classed as employing mounted cartarage loaded interior the chamber employing a action. A muzzle loader or black powder it no such element and any felon might desire to verify there state statute do confirm.
