    Default CVA Muzzleloaders and Cabelas / Bass Pro

    Hi folks,

    This is my first post in the OOD forums as I am new to hunting at a mere 52 years of age. I wasn't sure if this question belonged in the muzzleloader or this firearm forum, but as the question is regards the availability of a firearm I thought I would try here first.

    Does anyone know why Cabelas and Bass Pro here in Canada no longer carries the CVA brand muzzleloaders? I noticed back in the winter Cabelas had the CVA Optima and Accura amongst others. Now they only carry Traditions and one model of Thompson Center. I had been thinking of getting a CVA Optima V2 as a starter black powder gun because of the value. Now I am concerned / paranoid that if Cabelas and Bass Pro stopped carrying them there is something to the online rumor mill about safety and the CVA brand. I can still get CVA at Canadian Tire or other independent shops so what is with Cabelas and Bass Pro dropping them?

    Thanks in advance for any intel you may provide.

    Andrew

    Welcome to the forum and hunting .I have no idea why Cabelas dropped the CVA brand but my son has had an optima for a number of years and has had no issues with it. Seems to be good value for the money. Cheers B525

    I have a CVA wolf and it performs really well, picked mine up at SAIL. Maybe the profit margin is more on the other brands?

    Thanks B525 and Fratri,

    Reassuring to hear from owners. I thought profit margin might have been a factor too.

    Thanks again.

    I have a cva optima v2 and I am very happy with it. Sail carries cva and when I was there last they told me cva is the only muzzle loader with service in Canada. All of the other brands have to be sent to the USA for warranty work.

    I hope there aren't any issues. I got an optima and a buddy got the accura, both with nitride barrels for the upcoming black powder season. Havent been able to shoot mine yet.

    Thanks Useless,

    Appreciate a Canadian warranty on a firearm. Pretty rare these days. I saw Epps carries the Wolf.

    It's good to hear so many positives about them. Their website and you tube videos seem very professional and yet they maintain these very competitive prices. Oh well I guess it is Cabelas and Bass Pros lost and my gain to get a CVA.
