So I have owned the gun for a few years and originally purchased a cheap scope for it. The cheap scope was hitting so far off target I had to shim it in the bases to make it hit. After season I bought a decent (swift) scope for it and got it dialed in... however it was almost all the way adjusted to the right. First cold day I shot it the reticle broke in the scope. Crazy. Swift replaced scope for free, but I put another cheap scope back on it. Same problem, almost all the way out of adjustment to hit paper. While still sighting it in the scope went out of focus and "fogged" up. I guess the gas escaped. I knew there was a problem so I pulled it apart and.... THE HOLES DRILLED IN THE BARREL FOR THE BASES AREN'T STRAIGHT!!! Three are in a perfect line and the last one is about 1/32" off. I guess it was torquing the scope in the mounts and breaking the scopes. CVA said ship it to them and they will repair or replace it... but now its ML season so I guess I'm going open sights and will ship it after season.

I believe the model is a HunterBolt Magnum
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

You're never to old to learn something stupid.

Hope you get a big buck!! Maybe, that'll take some of the edge off. Good luck!

I had a barrel that I had issues with years ago, and they told me to send it back for replacement. Before I could get it back to them, my new barrel arrived within a couple days of contacting them. Maybe you could talk them into overnighting you a barrel especially since you went through so many scopes. For my troubles, they upgraded me from a Nickel barrel to Stainless at no charge. That is the only time I have dealt with their customer service, but it was first class.
I pray to fish until my dying day. When it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray, when in the Lord's safe landing net & I'm at peace that in His mercy I be judged big enough to keep.

Good luck. Open sights aren't so bad. If I can see and hit a target at 100 yards anybody should. If I'm not wearing my glasses I'd have trouble identifying the difference between a deer and a squirrel at that distance! haha
