CVA Mountain Rifle - 50 cal Muzzleloader
Up for sale is an original first generation CVA Mountain Rifle. This rifle is part of an estate sale. It was pulled out of a safe where it has sat for a number of years unused. It was fired 30 rounds to assure it was safe and in good working order. This gun is a great smoke pole. It is a beautiful rifle and it shoots well with a high degree of accuracy. CVA Mountain Rifles have a proven record of reliability that easily handles the demands of the everyday use.
This CVA Mountain Rifle is an old fashioned 50 cal cap lock muzzleloader. It has a 32”, 1-66 twist, octagonal barrel that shoots .490 round ball. The barrel is clean and shiny with nice rifling. The barrel has about 98% of the original brown finish. This Mountain Rifle has an excellent quality Maslin style percussion lock with a nipple for # 11 size caps.
This rifle was made in 1978 and it is very accurate. First generation CVA Mountain Rifles were made in the USA before some of the manufacturing process moved to Spain. It does not say USA or Spain on the barrel. The stock is thinner and lighter than the new CVA rifles and fits very well in the hand.
This Mountain Rifle has a nice Beech wood stock with minor nicks. The hook style breech has two barrel keys surrounded by German silver wedge inlays. The rifle sports a poured pewter nose cap and brass patch box. Steel underribs with steel octagonal thimbles house the original ramrod. The Percussion Maslin style lock still has all of its dull color casehardening remaining. Steel furniture includes the buttplate, trigger guard and sidelock screw washers. The rifle has double set triggers.
This is a tight and clean CVA Mountain Rifle.
I am asking $225 + actual cost of shipping.
