Default RE: Which CVA should I get?

I own a Hunterbolt , and don' t reccomend CVA for that reason . The rifles you mention all have tight rates of twist that make them unsuitable for round ball . Add in CVA' s crappy quality control(mine broke it' s triggerspring after the first 12 rounds) , the recent recall for dangerous barrels , and their abominable customer service , and you' d be better off shopping elsewhere . When I tried to get a replacemnt trigger spring I was told that this wasn' t covered by their " limited lifetime warranty" , but that I could get a replacement from a gun shop for $30-40 ! You can get a perfectly servicable inline from Traditions for $100-150 , I own three of them , and they will serve you well . Look for one in a 1 in 48" twist to expand your ammo selection . I have 2 Traditions Buckhunters in .54 cal with 1 in 48" twist , and love them . They can take any Colorado game up to elk and bear at up to 120 yds . You may wish to recheck your game laws , I think Co. does allow sabots now .
