I talked to a CVA dealer today in my neck of the woods, he said that if the fiber optic sights on your CVA break CVA will replace them with a better set of fiber optic sights made from metal not plastic like the originals, also these metal ones are what CVA is using on their new rifles. I never had a problem with the plastic sights but I'm guessing CVA had enough complaints about them they decided to change them.

I like my 2 CVA pos I have the Bobcat and the Hunterbolt, They shoot great and I always get my deer! Its such a rush to take a deer with a patched round ball out of my Bobcat. To each his own. Jimmy

Just a personal opinion that you use open sights on a ML.
=============================================

Scopes were on MLs in the 1800s. The ML Reenactment Clubs of today set rules they desire. Inlines go back to the mid 1850s.
In the Tower of London, is a flintlock inline that is dated 1738, The curator says it is not the first of its type. [:-]

We have 3 CVA Hunterbolts and will say that a lot of the talk about plastics giving trouble is true. Have broken 3 front sights, had one rear site almost come off, apparently when it came out of the case, causing a high miss on a deer, and had two of the plastic ramrod holders break. The factory replaced the holders and 1 front sight so far, and have not talked to them again on the other front sights, but I will!As far as shooting goes, they do pretty good using 90-95 grains of pyrodex select. I use 295 lead PB's and my son went back to 320 gr. TC MAXI's HP that he used in his TC Hawken after losing a deer with the 245 gr. PB. MN won't allow scopes or red dot scopes so my ol' 77 yr old eyes have to do with open fibre optic sights and limit my range. Put a scope on to try different loads to try to find the best one, so I knew it was me and not the gun. Ran out of time to really do a good job of it. I did get a deer with the bow,(using a red dot scope) and had 100% success shooting everyone I saw in ML season (DIDN'T SEE ANY!!!!)

For those of you getting tight groups with your optimas could you pass on your bullet/powder combination. I love my optima but need to get my group size down.
