Got 700 bucks to drop at basspro...looks like a tradition or cva are my choices there...go with accura v2 or Vortek strike fire? Appears most people are changing to smokeless but I think my options are limited at basspro. ..thanks for any advice

You can get one top shelf CVA for that. Set a few bucks aside for good optics.

IMO

maybe sell gift card for like 650

take cash

buy a savage smokless from Whitaker guns

or

if BP sells handi rifles buy a 45/70 have it converted to smokless
or get a tc 45/70 convert it

or cva apex 45/70 convert it


you can have it converted for like 100 plus 40 for breech plug

I love my new CVA and have heard very good things about the optima and accuras. You should be able to get a good package deal- camoed with stainless or blued barrel, scope (or at least the heavy duty rings), sling, and a soft case. They come with the quick release breach plug which is nice. Great quality and life time warranty. Good luck! If basspro is like cabelas even with the full package you should still have plenty left over for powder primers and bullets :-)

Bass pro in nashville has the tc triumph around 550 i think but not sure. I shoot a cva optima and its a great gun but I LOVE the way the triumph feels. Been thinking about selling the cva and buying one.
