Default Anyone used a CVA Optima V2 pistol?

I've been planning on getting one sometime soon for muzzleloader season. Has anyone here used one? What's your opinion of it?

I have one, put a bushnell scope on it. Super accurate with 80gr of BH209 an 300gr XTP/crushrib sabot. I plan to hunt with it along with my White this fall.

You will need a rest. I use a shooting bipod. She will kick some too, so be ready, but its not really that bad just hold on.

The kid uses a TC pistol in .300wm toytruck. I don't think recoil from a ML pistol is going to bug him too much

I shot a 30-30 contender and thought that had about enough kick I could only imagine shooting a .300wm. I shoot that as a rifle and not sure I'd want to as a pistol lol.

I have 2 .500 S&W's, one 4 inch one 8 inch. The 8 inch is scoped and of course longer so it's heavier. Shooting it isn't quite a "pleasure" but not to awful bad. The 4 inch on the other hand, is tantamount to holding a kicking, screaming, biting, thrashing 4 year old. But that 4 year old is awful mean on the business end I would imagine that .300wm TC that Lone Wolf uses would be about the same!

Recoil is about the same as my .44 mag. Ruger revolver, just don't let it surprise you because is a muzzleloader.

LOL with what he is used to toy, it would probably have to buck like a full grown cranky mule for him to even notice the recoil

I would love to get one if they made them in 45cal. Ed's little 350gr conicals would be a hoot and easy to load too.

.45 are now legal here, but .50 is recommended by DGIF.
Go ahead an get one they are a hoot to shoot, just use a .452 saboted bullet.
