I have a ProHunter so I am bias. To me my PH is worth every cent I have spent on her and has been all I hoped for and more.

When one spends his hard earned dollars one should expect a gun that goes bang. One should not have to modify a breech plug to get ignition with BH209. CVA knew of problems with the Accura V1 plug and did nothing. They however made a QRBP off its design which did nothing to help ignition with BH209.

I spend my money now on products that are proven and reliable.

Actually they made there QRBP to compete with the original designer of this type of B P, which happens to be T/C. who happens to make BP'S that work well with BH209 when maintained properly. Ray

You hit the nail on the head. It was a poorly designed copy job.

LonRainJer,
I just recently got into the BP scene (two years ago) and bought a CVA Accura Ver. 1. That was the best thing I could have done. It is stainless steel, black stock, shoots wonderfully, kills deer like there is no tomorrow, has shot well with both 777 and Pyrodex, shoots various bullets well and it only cost $240!! There is nothing finicky about this gun. Its so dependable and a pleasure to shoot. I have so much confidence with this gun!!!! I have found that in the BP world you do not always get what you pay for. Good luck!!!

Yes sir it was, and you hit the nail on the head when you mentioned the fact that they didn't get it right as far as Bh209 is concerned. not only that, but i can remove and replace the BP in my Triumph 2- 2 1/2 in the same amount of time it takes to remove the CVA version..how do i know this? i helped a rookie M/L out and he owned a new wolf with a QRBP.. the wolf rifle functioned great for a low price rifle. the BP i didn't care for at all and neither did the OP when he tried the one on my Triumph. i hope all of the various M/L companys take a close look at the powder market and realize that BH 209 is here to stay! and design there BP'S so they ignite all BP subs with 100% reliability..this includes Knight !!

I have a Triumph in the safe also. It has never misfired with BH209 and the plug comes out as fast as it goes in.

My suggestion is to look for used ones. Seems like around here you can buy used ones for around half what new ones would go for. Just check out the bore since a lot of guys don't keep them as clean as they should and they rust.

Another option is Walmart around here still has ones left on clearance that are decently priced.

If it was me I'd personally look at the T/C Omega with a stainless barrel. I'm just not a big CVA fan as the ones I've handled don't fit me well at all. However, they may fit you perfectly. It's just a personal preference.

one shouldnt have to spend $900 on an encore and then spend more money of fixing heavy triggers, weak lock up springs because the factory didnt do it right?
