Talking CVA Apex

Had the Apex out wednesday and it was shooting as usual. It needed to be set back to zero, but the groups were almost boring. No matter what I stuffed down the muzzle, it shot it nicely. Love this gun.

Its a shame they have more or less quit making them. After this last batch that came in im not sure if any more will be available according to what ive read. Its pretty hard to find a custom barrel maker that is willing to make barrels for them too.

I would love to have one in 405 Winchester.

Apex is a darn good rifle. One downside is the 8lb unscoped weight.

MountainDevil54, do some pushups. 8 pounds is lightweight.

Along with the .50 cal ML, I bought the .243 win. Both barrels shoot spot on. Very satisfied with it.

The Apex is a really nice and accurate rifle.

Congrats on the fine shooting CVA... I hate they decided to discontinue the Apex as well!

The Scout V2 is nice for the price and some calibers include a removable muzzle brake. Apex has a longer barrel though and a larger OD at the breach. 1.1" is big for a break action breach OD.

Bergara direct has some great pricing on the ML barrels.
