Never shot a Knight...
My experiences with smokepoles consist of a TC Black Diamond - great gun, loaned it from my uncle. My Remington Genesis, which still needs some work and a scope, but is a tack driver close up, I just need to get the load figured out right and back it up a little bit...and one of those custom Hawkins, which was a hoot to hunt with but its so damn heavy!
Any Black Diamond would be used, but they are great guns. And they don't make the Genesis anymore, but again - all good. I think they are actually a Traditions gun (could be wrong)
Regardless, if this is your first smokepole, have fun! They are a little scary in my mind, sometimes it's hard to wrap my mind around shoving all the stuff down the barrel and boom! But a heck of a lot of fun to shoot! They are a big bang, small kick (unless you are shooting upwards of 100 grains), and a cloud of smoke to swim through to see if ya shot anything. Love it. Just be wary - cold fingers...cold fingers - there's no way to get around it!
Also - the most important tip I can give you come season is that once you load your gun and it is cold - let it stay cold. Do NOT bring it back into the house with the load still in it - just take the primer off and put it in the garage or lock it in the truck for the night. They condensate and then things don't work like they are suppose to - ask that doe a few years ago who had a primer fired in her direction at 20 yards but no bullet! Lesson learned and this past year I had my gun loaded for two days and then discharged it without a problem and then the new load fired when I needed it TOO (I just can't hit the broadside of a barn, or a deer)
