CVA Buckhorn .50 Caliber 209 Muzzleloader 4.5 5 22 22
gun Best 200 dollars I've ever spent. well spent money. November 19, 2013
Awesome Kickazz Very impressed. My rifle of choice for deer hunting. Couldn't believe how accurate and powerful it was. Used a 50 cal. Powerbelt Aerolite bullet and tripleseven pellets November 17, 2013
Great Gun, Great Value I purchased this gun as an upgrade. I've been shooting a T/C Hawken style .50 for the last few years and got tired of the antiquated design and wanted something more modern, however I didn't want to spend too much since I only hunt 2 or 3 days a year during muzzleloader season. After doing some online research and looking at various guns I decided to go with this one. I have been thrilled with my decision. This gun is an entry level inline that anyone can use. I have mounted a scope and can keep a reasonably tight group at 100 yards. I say "reasonably tight" because there are so many different variables to consider when firing a muzzleloader. Just a few grains of powder more or less can effect the shot placement. I have been firing Powerbelt bullets and have tested between 75 and 100 grains of Pyrodex. I have found that 75 is adequate for the size of deer I'm hunting and the distance of my shots. This gun is very durable and is well built for the price. Disassembly for cleaning is very easy and makes cleaning a snap. They give you all the tools required, but all you need is an allen wrench and the breech wrench which comes with the gun. I have a bore rope that I run through the bore. Cleaning takes about 15 minutes. The only reason I'm giving this review 4 starts instead of 5 is because it is somewhat difficult to put in a new primer and remove the primer after firing. This isn't a big deal when you aren't trying to load in the heat of the moment, but when you are reloading to take a quick shot it can be a little difficult to get the old primer out and a new one installed. I keep my pocket knife handy in the field and use it to pop the old one out and then it just takes a few seconds to get the new one situated in place. This may be something that is common to all inlines, but I've never fired another so I don't know. Overall I highly recommend this gun. I have had it for one season and took a buck and a doe with it. I'm looking forward to the new season starting in two weeks so i can take it out again. In closing I'll say that the selling point for me on this gun was when I was doing some online research. If you Google "The Truth About CVA" you'll find a blog by the CEO of CVA. On that blog people ask him questions and he gives them direct answers. I love the fact that the CEO is accessible and addresses customer comments (and complaints) directly on that blog instead of you having to call some 800 number. I was floored that a CEO was making himself so accessible and that was the ultimate selling point for me. October 13, 2013
No-Frills Tack Driver I bought this rifle on discount. It was my third ML and it was so cheap I had to buy it for my son on his 15th birthday. From the first time I shot it I have loved this simple gun. And I shoot it a lot. The 209 ignition is foolproof and positive in all weather. The stock fits me perfectly without modification. The safety lever is a bit awkward to get to in the firing position, and the spring plug on the end of the barrel is impossible to remove without taking the stock off. I removed the stock rear sight, which is a very nice green light pipe design, and replaced with a peep sight from Williams (WGRS-CVA) because my eyes are pushing 60, and man 'o' man will this rifle shoot. I took it elk hunting last September a knocked down a nice cow at 125 yards. Works best with 348 gr powerbelt over 110 grains of Pyrodex RS. It is a magnum rifle but I haven't tried 150gr with a heavier bullet. No need. One last thing I appreciate is the bullet guiding muzzle. We can't hunt with sabot rounds in Colorado, but starting PBs and lead conicals is a snap with the inset muzzle. This is a good, inexpensive starter rifle for those who aren't sure they'll stick with black powder, and a great way to get out there hunting before the masses. June 15, 2013

A: 
No I don't believe it is. Your looking for a flintlock I think. This shoots with a 209 shotgun primer. it goes in the breech, and the firing pin hits it through a tiny hole which ignites the powder then pushes out the slug or ball.

A: 
This is a magnum rifle. You can load it up 150 grains of black powder and, topped with a heavy bullet it bucks pretty good.

I shoot mine with my standard hunting load - 110 grains of BP and 348 grain bullet and it kicks about like a 12 gauge with 2 3/4 target loads. Even then it is a softer kick because the powder charge burns slower than smokeless powder.

A: 
First start out and run 3 primers through it to burn the oil out of the barrel. Drop in you charge (150grain) push your shot down. Put a primer in, and you are ready to go. After you shoot it, wait for all the embers to die in the barrel, and repeat the process.

A: 
Buy the CVA rifle/Konus scope kit if you can find it. You won't be able to touch the price of the components bought seperately.If not, buy the DuraSight scope mount CVA recommends and only a scope made for a muzzleloader.

Stick with 100 grm loads as the 150 grm loads tend to cause the groups to be wider. The IMR white hots worked great for me with the Hornady 300 gr SST sabots. Buy the CVA deluxe cleaning kit with the range rod, bore cleaner gel, rust preventer, and various brushes. Also get the loader kit with the loader and different bullet nipples. You want to use the correct nipple for the type of bullet you choose. Lastly, I bought some of the foam bore cleaner. It works while you clean the rest of the gun. Also get the 500 count bag of patches.

Be ready, you will spend all most as much on supplies as you spent on the gun.

A: 
I have the same rifle & I use Powerbelt bullets, I think they're 145 gr, Triple 7 powder, I use 100 to 150 gr, with Winchester shotgun primers. I think the gun can only handle 150 gr of powder, not for sure because I got mine used & it never came with a manuel. I shoot it out to 50 yards & it is putting 1 1/2, 2in groups. I never shoot beyond that because my food plot is only 40x40 yards. Great gun for the money. If this was not of any help give your local BPS a call & hopefully they can answer all your questions that you may have.

A: 
This is just the gun by itself. However, most combo packs include the most cheaply-produced accessories available. CVA's combo packs include usable scopes and loading accessories, but I've found I can shop the web to find better optics, bullets, and so on, for around the same money as the difference in price between the rifle and the combo package. Not to impugn CVA's choice of what to include, but I'd rather keep that extra money in my pocket to use on a scope or bullets that are more in tune with my individual preferences. For example, the woods I hunt won't ever allow more than a 100 yard shot. Therefore, I'd rather have a high-quality 1.75-4x32mm scope than a department-store special 3-9x40mm with a less-sharp focus at close range, poor light transmission, more magnification than I can use at the high end and too much for the "He's Right Under My Stand!!!" shots at the low end. And every rifle is different in what it likes to be fed; so rather than pay for a bunch of bullets that the manufacturer includes because they happen to make and market them too, again I'd rather take my money somewhere I can see other options on the shelf. And at $179, you're getting enough accuracy out of this rifle that I'd consider it a bargain even if it came without sights or a ramrod!

A: 
Take the cap off the back of the barrel where the rounded plug is w/ the allen head in it & unscrew that to take it out & take the guts out it & take the breech plug wrench & unscrew that & that givs you access to the inside of the barrel. Get some good cleaner & breech plug grease & you should be good to go.
