The Optima from Connecticut Valley Arms (CVA) contains features that only
exist in other manufacturers' most expensive guns. The Optima rifle features a
fluted barrel made of 416 grade stainless steel. Real stainless steel, as
opposed to nickel-plated or spray-on paint, protects against corrosion on the
outside and the inside of the barrel. That fluted barrel measures 29 inches,
with 1:28-inch twist rifling with Bullet Guiding Muzzle -- all for greater
From a components standpoint, the Optima has a
smooth break action and Weatherproof 209 ignition. For durability and ease of
use, check out the stainless steel 209 breech plug and exposed hammer with
transfer bar safety. There's a built-in ramrod extension, plus a CrushZone recoil pad, and a Quake Claw Sling. The barrel is
set up with all metal DuraSight Fiber Optic sights.
A 100 percent ambidextrous firearm -- thanks to a deep pistol grip -- the
Optima is available in Mossy Oak Break-Up camo solid
synthetic, composite stock. The whole setup weighs 8 pounds.
Muzzleloader seasons continue to expand nationwide, and there's no better
time than the present to tackle the sport -- and tackle it with the CVA Optima
Pro .50 cal. Black Powder Rifle with Scope.
