Did you try traditions? I I bought a barrel from them, wasn't a deer hunter barrel, but got it from them.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Some traditions models are the same as some cva models. Try deer creek in Waldron indiana. They acquired all the cva left over parts when cva went out of the sidelong business.

It is possible to make one up from a barrel blank, but it is alot more work than it is worth.

Re: Traditions Deerhunter Barrel Replacement

can you unscrew the end of the barrel to clean it and clear blockages or is that fixed?...Mine seems to be locked/siezed up

Not fixed but as close to being fixed as it can get. What is in the barrel that you can't get out?

The breechplug in most-all muzzleloader-manufacturer sidelocks are permanent fixtures. There are no unscrew provisions in owners manuals.

Re: Traditions Deerhunter Barrel Replacement

Do not try to unscrew the breech in a CVA or Traditions gun. The breech plug is cross threaded with the touch hole housing or percussion drum, and then drilled open from the muzzle with a deep hole drill. You are more likely to break off the button/hook/tang than to unscrew it. Even if you could, because of the cross threading, you won't get it to go back together properly. It is a particular breech system used by their manufacturer, Ardessa in Spain. It makes a very strong breech, but has draw backs.

A TC can be unscrewed, with a great deal of fuss and then replaced. A CVA/traditions is a whole nuther beast.
