CVA™ Paramount Pro Muzzleloader Rifle .50 Caliber - PR3520N
In 2019, CVA introduced the Paramount muzzleloader, which took long-range muzzleloading to a whole new level. The .50 caliber CVA Paramount Pro is an upgraded version of this already feature-packed performance muzzleloader. The Paramount Pro has an upgraded trigger, stock, and CeraKote finish on the barrel.
In 2019, CVA introduced the Paramount muzzleloader, which took long-range muzzleloading to a whole new level. The .50 caliber CVA Paramount Pro is an upgraded version of this already feature-packed performance muzzleloader. The Paramount Pro has an upgraded trigger, stock, and CeraKote finish on the barrel. This .50 caliber muzzleloader still offers all of the great features of the standard Paramount but is built more for the long-range mountain hunter.
The most noticeable difference between the standard CVA Paramount and the Paramount Pro is the distinct difference in looks and styling. The stock on the Pro is a Greyboe Terrain stock, which features a proprietary camo pattern. The Greyboe stock is a fiberglass stock with a raised cheek for alignment with scopes and a comfortable grip that accommodates a variety of shooters. This stock offers two front sling swivel studs, to attach a sling and bipod separately, or even an aftermarket Picatinny style rail. The Greyboe Terrain stock on the Paramount Pro also offers several flush cup attachment points, for other sling mounting options.
The .50 caliber CVA Paramount Pro features a 26-inch Nitride-treated Bergara barrel, which is manufactured from 416 stainless steel. With the high velocities of the Paramount Pro, with a longer, heavier high ballistic coefficient bullet, a faster twist rate was needed to stabilize the PowerBelt ELR bullet. The Paramount Pro barrel features a 1:22” twist rate, which has resulted in accuracy of well under MOA groupings out past 300 yards. Additionally, the Paramount Bergara barrel features a bullet guiding muzzle and interrupted fluting for weight and heat dispersion. Also new for 2020, all Paramount muzzleloaders will offer threaded muzzles to accept a muzzle brake, which CVA specifically designed for the Paramount. The new Paramount Muzzle Brake will allow for significantly reduced recoil out of these high-velocity muzzleloaders.
TriggerTech triggers will be a standard feature in the Paramount Pro muzzleloaders, which is a great upgrade from the factory triggers in the standard Paramount. The TriggerTech offers an external adjustment screw, which allows for click adjustments by ounce between 1.5 and 3.5 pounds. TriggerTech has become one of the leading triggers for centerfire rifles, and this addition to the Paramount Pro is a welcome improvement.
To make this muzzleloader Colorado legal, this the .50 caliber Paramount Pro will ship with a Williams Globe front sight, as well as a Williams Peep Sight on the rear. In some states, there are caliber restrictions, so this muzzleloader will be legal in places where a .50 caliber muzzleloader is needed. This gun will still be drilled and tapped for scope mounts, so the peep sights may be removed if a scope is desired instead.
The Paramount Pro also features the VariFlame ignition system for a faster, hotter, and more consistent powder burn. While most muzzleloaders use 209 primers, the VariFlame System in the Paramount allows for the use of Large Rifle Primers. With the VariFlame Ignition, the Paramount Pro is capable of burning 170 grains of Blackhorn 209 by volume (119 grains by weight) with the PowerBelt ELR 280gr bullet leaving the muzzle at over 2,200 fps. Included with the Paramount is a special tool that will allow you to remove spent primers from the VariFlame adapters, so you can reuse the adapters multiple times over. With the initial rifle purchase, each customer will receive a pack of VariFlame™ Adapters, as well as the VariFlame™ re-priming tool.
Just like the standard Paramount, the Paramount Pro offers a fully free-floated barrel, without the ramrod stored underneath and tucked into the stock. For loading the Paramount Pro, CVA designed a quick-deployable ramrod, that is stored in a Molle pouch on either your sling or belt. This unique design allows for quick reloading in the field while providing compact and easy storage. The quick-deployable ramrod is not used for cleaning, so the Paramount will also ship with a solid aluminum ramrod and Palmsaver™ handle.
The CVA™ Paramount action is one of the more unique features of this muzzleloader. To create a tight seal to the VariFlame™ breech plug, CVA has designed and patented a unique bolt assembly. This new self-headspacing bolt is spring-loaded, which allows for a tight seal to the VariFlame adapters every time, to eliminate blowback. Additionally, this new bolt assembly comes apart without any tools and is incredibly easy to clean. The Paramount action is drilled and tapped for scope mounts, with a Remington 700 pattern, so mounts are easy to find. While the CVA™ Paramount looks like a standard bolt action rifle, the action is very different and is not able to be converted to any centerfire gun, which allows this gun to be purchased without a 4473 in most states.
In summary, the .50 caliber CVA Paramount Pro muzzleloader is a high-performance muzzleloader that will reach out past 300 yards, with sub-MOA accuracy. This upgraded Pro model is just what western hunters and long-range shooters are looking for in a muzzleloader. The Paramount will ship with 15 PowerBelt™ ELR bullets, 10 VariFlame™ adapters, a VariFlame™ re-priming tool, breech plug wrench, fast-deploying ramrod, solid aluminum cleaning rod, and a Quake Sling with flush-cup mounts. Additionally, if you would like a custom scope mount package that is mounted and bore-sighted by our team, please reach out to our customer service department for more details.
