I'd be pretty ticked off if I did have issues with quality on any firearm purchased. I just know I'm pretty much assured that I'll have no problems purchasing/owning a TC product. I can tell you that certain parts on my Knight Extreme are not up to TC quality. This is a fact too, CVA made really cheap Spanish kits and guns starting out and they have come a really long way. TC made a high quality product right from the get go! We'll see what happens to TC in the future with new ownership, I just know their high quality past is well earned! Remember everyone we all get a fair opinion here don't be thin skinned though! FG and I will banter back and forth just like BB and I do regarding Traditions vs TC, it's all part of the fun here. I can't think of anyone who knows CVA better than FG, however, there's whole lot of history and experience to debate for future posts. Anyone shooting flintlocks?

very true! But who likes dirty muzzle loaders? LOL.

Especially on the omega with the drop block. Pain in the butt to get into the nooks and crannies

Can't agree with that. Two screws takes off the stock, and it's all right there. I found the CVA guns harder to clean.

I guess that why you have CVA, and I have TC.

The good thing is they'll both kill the game.

you like cleaning that drop action?

I had the omega and the winchester apex which used the same deal, got rid of both LOL. i couldnt stand the way they locked up and had the little hammers on them.

Priming them was another thing i hated, especially with low - medium mounts on them.


Known to others as the Apex, But to me, she was Black Beauty LOL.

Actually, I do like cleaning it. I really like everything about the gun.

I see lots of meat in my freezer in the future.


That's right! I can see my future.

That is why I like this forum, seems to be a mutual respect amongst you guys. I enjoy learning from someone's past mistakes... a little banter is fun, lightens things up.

I'm on about 5 forums with FG, so we've learned to get along.

What gun we both shoot isn't really that important.

Muley as long as your shooting a TC, you and I can/will agree! Seriously folks, its a good thing life gives us a varity of choises, some of us just seem to make the right ones! ha ha I still get way more enjoyment shooting my flintlocks than the in-lines. I also am a fanatic when it comes to cleaning, I don't see much difference whether its a CVA, Traditions, TC, Knight or my Hawken, it just is messy and takes time to do it right. I see so many ml auctions where the previous owner didn't take very good care of it and the value is next to nothing.
