Re: Cva optima v2?

I'm thinking the same thing. I like both it and the Traditions Vortex but the Traditions is heavier. I really like the balance and quick sight acquisition of the CVA. If I can get my T/C Triumph sold I'll be getting one.

I gotta go agitate the techies!

Re: Cva optima v2?

Years ago I said I'd never own a CVA but they have cleaned up their act in recent years. I bought an Optima V2 last week and am eager to try it out. I shouldered the Optima V2 and Acura V2 at a shop and liked the feel of the Optima V2 better. Owners of both of these models are pretty high on them. Good luck.

Re: Cva optima v2?

I used to be a strict TC man.

Then a friend of mine purchased a CVA optima. I could not believe the performance. Then his father purchased one, and the performance was still there. At 100 yards with 285 gr sabots, 2 pyrodex pellets, his group was 1.5 or less off of a dead slead with the cabelas powder burn scope.

Then their other son purchased one and the smae exact setup and the same results. So I purchased mine earlier this year.

I am very much looking forward to shooting it next month to sight it in.

The CVA optima in my opinion is one of the best muzzle loader I have seen for the price in a long time.

I have no idea how they hold up over time, or their ruggedness because this all happened over the past year.

Went to cardpool, purchased electronic gift cards, then made the purchase when it was on sale from bass pro. Best 300 I spent this year besides my dog e collar from TT.

Re: Cva optima v2?

Im not a fan of the inlines but I bought one for a Colorado elk hunt. I bought the cva optima v2.It has one of the best triggers and with 100gr BH 209 and a 300gr thor bullet look out. I was starting to look for the kill zone on a house fly it is that accurate. Good luck.

Re: Cva optima v2?

I bought an optima V2 last year. Camo thumb hole stock. Stainless barrel. Put a Burris 3x9 on it. Great gun. Would suggest it to anyone. Especially for the price. They are well worth it in my opinion. Took 2 deer with it last year. I love the breech plugs in them. Just use your fingers. No tools needed. And the palm saver ram rod. Makes loading a heck of a lot easier. I shoot 2 pyrodrex pellets and a 255 grain Barnes Spitfire TMZ sabot. Great results. Again I would recommend this gun to anyone looking at getting an inline.

I am looking at a CVA Wolf, for $245. with a scope is tough to beat, especially if not a passionate in-liner.......
