CVA Optima™ V2 Muzzleloader - .50 Caliber - 1:28 Twist Rate - PR2020SM

by CVA

While the new Optima V2 shares the name of its popular predecessor, this second version gun has been re-designed with many new features. Modeled after CVA’s top-of-the-line Accura V2, the Optima V2 features the same trigger-guard with actuated breeching lever, internal parts, and neutral center-of-gravity trigger.

The CVA Optima V2 Muzzleloader offers improvements from the original CVA Optima. This redesign has improved both the useability and functionality of the rifle as well as the downrange performance.

A subtle, yet highly favorable new feature to the CVA Optima V2 line is the actuated breeching lever which has been integrated into the trigger guard. This improvement makes opening the breech significantly easier even when the gun is dirty. It also eliminates the chances of a breeching button becoming stuck or broken out in the field.

In addition, the trigger has been updated from the original Optima. The Optima V2 now features a neutral center-of-gravity trigger system, that is both crisp and clean breaking. This upgrade allows the shooter to maintain better down-range accuracy and precision with every shot.

For ease of use especially for maintenance and cleaning, the Optima V2 has been outfitted with CVA’s patented Quick Release Breech Plug (QRBP). This new breech plug design allows for the removal of the breech plug by hand, absolutely no tools required. Not only does this save time during cleaning, but also it allows for quick access to the barrel even in the field when you may not have a wrench on hand.

To ensure this muzzleloader is an excellent option for anyone, CVA has crafted a new 100% ambidextrous stock coupled with a reversible hammer spur so the gun can be fired by right and left-handed shooters. The Optima V2 also features a CrushZone recoil pad which reduces the amount of felt recoil on the shoulder and improves comfort when shooting heavier charges.

The barrel of the rifle measures 26” and is comprised of stainless steel to help prevent rust and corrosion. Additionally, the barrel has been fluted to cut down on weight and ensure the rifle is easy to pack and maneuver out in the field. This rifle features a 1:28 rate of twist and is ideally suited to shoot belted conical bullets such as the Powerbelt series or Hornady Bore Driver series bullets.

Rounding out the muzzleloader CVA has included a one-piece DuraSight® DEAD-On™ scope mount free of additional charge as well as a PalmSaver Ramrod to ensure comfortable loading with every shot.

If you are in the market for a gun packed with excellent features that won’t break the bank, this is a great option for you!

Very good muzzleloader - best value for 50 cal on the market

I purchased this model to replace a previous CVA Kodiak 209 50 cal muzzleloader. I really wanted a TC Impact, but they were no longer available. I reluctantly bought this model. All my reluctance left after I shot it. I shoot 2 pellets of Triple 7 and 245 gr Power Belt Aero-Tips. The groups are very good being one inch to one and a half inches hundred. I think it could shoot better if I did. The trigger is very good. The included mounts are concentric. The scope I chose mounted stress free. Breech plug is very easy to put in and take out. The sling is acceptable. One of the best things is that the barrel and bore clean very well with isopropyl alcohol (I used 91%. alcohol variety.) I swabbed the barrel after every shot and did not experience a carbon ring. Overall, this is a great muzzleloader.
