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.

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.

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.
