CVA and Blackhorn 209 question

Just purchased a CVA Optima LR and while reading the owners manual it recommends to get a special breech plug if using Blackhorn 209. Well I won’t use anything BUT Blackhorn so here’s my question: To the other folks that have a CVA Optima, Wolf, Accura or Apex and use Blackhorn 209, did you get the special breech plug and does it make a noticeable difference? Thanks folks and keep your powder dry!

I have an Optima V2 and I installed the BH 209 plug. I think it has a shorter flash channel. I used the original plug for a while, but I think I had opened up the flash hole by .001-.002".

BH209 is all I shoot out of my TC ProHunter(Encore) with it's original factory breech plug and shoots great..

Here's a take on the CVA BH application:

Yes its a huge difference maker. Blackhorn 209 sells a better kit for a little xtra money.
