Default Ok, I think it has been long enough..

Has ANYONE on here tried the CVA Electra? (electric ignition Muzzle-loader). I have been waiting for a review and unless I missed something I never saw one. Any help much appreciated.

Thanks, Greg

check your local rules and regs, the electra is illegal to use here during the ML season

I live in Oklahoma and I wouldn't own one. Ifwe are talking about the muzzleloader that uses a battery to create a spark. I think the thing is a gimmick!! Could you imagine if you got a bad battery and it didn't fire when a monster buck walks by. What is the real benefitto this product??

Plus, the hassle of having to worry if it is charged etc.. I will just stick with the old fashioned 209 primers, because it isn't like it is a hassle to put a 209 primerin my gun. Secondly, it is a one shot deal, it may make more sense if it was arapid fire type gun.

IMHO, I wouldn't waste my money on it.

Just wondering guys. I am buying a Knight anyway, just kind of wondered if this worked. Just tired of the old remington, not too reliable anymore.
