Was cruisin through the internet today trying to download reading materials before I go to Afghanistan. Caught a web site that stated that CVA rifles had a tendancy to blow up. Did some more research and cant find much more on it. Most of what I read on other websites didnt have anything bad to say about them. I own one and wont load it over what is reccomended.

Currently shooting 150gr pyrodex pellets w/ 295gr powerbelt bullet (aint read much good about them either...from the same website).

Any of you heard anything bad about these ML?

rookie ML.

CVA are good rifles. The .50 cal Hawken was the first ml i ever owned. I've always had good luck with them and have a few CVA black powder pistols.

The CVA's that I had were heavy and the parts were flimsy and cheap compared to what I shoot now. They shot very well.

I'm glad mod70 you mentioned the parts. I forgot that one. The sidelocks had a v-shaped main spring. Mine broke and i replaced it myself but it was a pain. Almost took my eye out when it popped out of the vise grips. Mine was a heavy rifle also but i liked it.

Check the CVA web site there was a recall on some a while back and I think what you found was "Talk" about that,as I seem to recall one reason for the recall was barrels bursting.

CVA makes great guns and their customer service is unbeatable.

I owned three different ones and never had any trouble what so ever out of any of them. Can't beat them for the price.

I bought my first CVA muzzleloader at an Osco Drug Store in 1978.

Back then they (at least their Mountain Rifles) were made in the USA.

Back then you could buy TC Hawken rifles at JC Penny and at Sears.

I remember when they both sold firearms. Target when they first opened here had a very good sporting goods dept and even sold reloading items for short while before they went to heck in a hand basket.

BTW My first ML was CVA Kent. Kit from JC Pennys West Town

BTW 2 Do you guys remember Untied General Products??

BTW 3 We don't need to recall just how long ago either of the above were \:D \:D

I've had three CVA guns over the years and, yeah, well the Hawkin with the 1:66 barrel and the brass hardware was kind of hokey, but I killed several deer with it. And that's when you had to find a machine shop to tap it for your scope bases. (I didn't know any gunsmiths)....I've got an Optima nowadays (won it in a church wild game supper)....it shoots great. It's my overpriced Knight with the Green Mountain bbl that's all over the paper
