From all the posts here CVA seems to have more dang problems than everything else combined. Maybe here lies the heart of the problem. While our site is only a small sampling of ml owners across the country, seems to be many unhappy CVA owners having issues. Just some thoughts. I can see another post saying someone makes a living repairing TC rifles but you would think we'd get a few unhappy TC, Traditions, Lyman ect posts regarding problems. I would steer clear of CVA products based just on the problems thay have been posted just by our members. Maybe CVA needs to send me one of their top models to do a quality review!!!
Anyway spend your hard earned dollars wisely in whatever brand you purchase.
