CVA Buckhorn, likes Vs. Dislikes

4 posts in this topic

I'd like to get into black powder hunting and thought for the price this would be a good starting gun. Any thoughts? what do all you guys use? ammo? powder or pellets? thanks for the help.

I do not like that style of muzzy, my Dad has had a couple accidents with that style gun, not sure if it was in the safety mechanism or from the sliding of the bolt. We have had the gun go off twice unexpectedly. It is not a CVA but it is the same style.

I have a CVA optima and love it, I bought my dad a CVA Wolf. Both are the same set-up:i.e break action like a single shot shotgun. They are also easy to clean and operate from my experience.

My optima is with the Nickel finish, I would not recommend this unless you are a complete neat freak, it is real touchy to fouling.

Pellts i shoot 100 gr. But my friend shoots 150 gr pellts a lot better then mesure out powder. filling ect.

Drop 2 pellets= 100 gr. slap the bullet in and ready to go.

My dad and buddy have one and they like the gun but dislike the tool to put the primer in cause it is a pain in the butt. My brother has the Wolf and loves it. It is so simple it is stupid proof. I would recomend for the extra $20 or $30 to get the Wolf style.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
