other than a heavy trigger, there really are no issues with this rifle. A recoil pad is a must and that wont set me back much at all. For an average hunter, you really couldnt ask for much more out of a rifle.

My main shooters though are the Optima and the Accura.

didn't say give the gun to a kid. i said in turn do a good thing like get a kid started in hunting that normally maybe wouldn't hunt.

yup like i said, bought a cva had a bad experience with them and i pass that info on. others may disagree but that doesn't change my experience or opinion.

CVA now uses a 3/8 Bullet Guiding Muzzle. Each company that uses it, has its own name for it.
oh okay thanks.

I think giving that thing away was really a great move! You don't see those things happening very often today no matter what the issues were. High marks for the transfer ronn. You and I agree with the CVA thing even though I know they have greatly improved their product lines. Chevy, Ford thing. The CVA mountain flinter is ok but it's not a TC PA flint hunter.

FG, I remember one of my buddies had a CVA mountain tifle in percussion back in the late 70's. I thought they looked pretty nice so last year I picked one up for the son-in-law to use in PA if he ever wants to go. The spark is just ok and the sights are just ok but it does look pretty good!
