Never been around one, course they are illegal here in Iowa to ML hunt with so that explains it.

You can't use BH 209 with the Electra.

How hard are they to clean? I almost bought one but backed out due to CVA discontinuing them. Wouldn't be bad for a backup I guess. Sportsman's Guide had them for around $170 new.

You can use BH209 if you add 5 grains of triple 7 then your BH209 charge on top.

From what I have read it is. I don't do it because it would be a pain to carry in the field and reload. Mine shoots great with just straight triple 7. If anyone has one they don't want I will buy it for a reasonable price. I want a spare parts gun.

Yeah I would steer clear of the Electra if ever planning to shoot BH209.

Blackhorn 209

The best blackpowder substitute on the market hands down.

I've had a CVA Electra for 3 years. I have 0 complaints. I love the trigger pull and not worrying about caps is nice. I shoot 120 grains of Pyrodex and use 348 Grain Powerbelts.

Not many places for moisture to seep into your load with a sealed breech either. This gun was loaded for 4 days hunting in inclement weather and it still went boom. 110 grains 777 and a 300 grain dead center bullet.
