Remember the CVA Blazer? Results 1 to 5 of 5. Thread Tools Show Printable Version. I had one of them a long time ago. Simple as mud with its screen door mainspring and one piece stock.
Not pretty till you shot it- then it was beautiful. In one day in Junction, Texas I killed a doe, a Tom turkey, a javelina, and a jackrabbit with mine. Actually I think this was the first Modern Inline offered. Just remembering I remember them. I didn't like that the nipple was screwed into the rear of the barrel. If it ever blew out ,the shooter was in for a lot of misery. That being said I almost got one at a auction a couple of years ago. I was out bid. I had one.
CVA will give you a brand new Wolf inline if you send it back to them. They have been recalled due to that nipple. I've been thinking about building something like that just for fun, I have a 45 cal barrel just need to cut it off and thread the breech, and make a stock.

Impossible to value a weapon with just the caliber and serial number to any degree of accuracy. There are generally 2 types of BP firearm, 1 muzzleloaders, loaded with powder cloth patch and lead ball or mini ball also powder and a sabot and bullet in the more modern guns.
Depends on the caliber. Contact the maker's website and download the owner's manual for YOUR gun. There are a lot of variables involved with the number of grains of powder in any given caliber round. Most importantly are the type of powder and the weight of the bullet. After that is the loader's preference as to the velocity of the round. For example, I load a grain. You will have to specify if you are referring to black powder, rim fire or center fire and the weight of the projectile.
I have loaded Hodfdon powder and I like it, but you are asking the wrong question. What caliber and bullet weight are you wanting to load? Hodgdon makes several powders and each is suitable for a limited number of calibers depending on the specifics. It depends on the type of powder, the age and caliber of the cannon, the condition of the cannon, the projectile, etc. That is not a model number, it is the serial number. That all depends on the caliber, type of cartridge, type of powder, and how much velocity you want.
It varies depending on the caliber and manufacturer, it is always best to consult the maker of your particular firearm as to maximum powder charges. If that is not plausible I would have to know the details of the gun maker, model, caliber, age, condition before I could give you a safe maximum or recommended load.

Top Answer.Over the past several years, right here on Guns and Shooting Onlineyou may have noticed some articles that presented an extremely negative picture of both Blackpowder Products, Inc. Most of these relate to Connecticut Valley Arms, Inc.

Most of these guns were sold under the model name of Apollo, but there were also various other names. All, however, can be identified by a serial number that ends in or Unfortunately, both before and after the recall was issued, a number of people were injured with these guns. However, Connecticut Valley Arms, Inc. Today, BPI the current owner of the CVA brand is continuing the recall effort in an attempt to find all of these guns.
We will continue to do so until every recall gun is found. Other than the Voluntary Recall of these and guns, no other CVA gun model has ever been recalled for any reason. Now, in regard to the present, the guns that are being marketed under the CVA brand in bear little if any design similarity to those that were recalled in In fact, none of the barrels we use today are sourced from outside vendors.
CVA muzzleloaders built as late assuch as the Kodiak, were still using extruded steel barrels. Rather, they are all made in the Bergara Barrels factory, a facility that is wholly owned by our parent company. In addition to building the barrels for all CVA guns, Bergara Barrels also makes after-market barrels, as well as providing barrels to other gun manufacturers. The bores of all barrels are all drilled on site at the factory from cylindrical bar stock.
Also, in terms of materials and construction, we feel they are of equal, if not superior, quality to those of any of our competitors. You can see a detailed video of this entire barrel making process at www.
As a potential or present CVA owner, it is essential that you are able to use our guns with total confidence. Certainly, reading articles like those I mention above can understandably shake that confidence.

All Rights Reserved.I was thinking of trying to do some customizing on it and google searched the rifle and came up with people saying they werent safe to shoot!
So I called CVA and talked to them about it.
The guy told me it was safe but they have an exchange program for them. Basically if I send it to them they will send me a new rifle, model depending on whats available he told me.
I am not sure what to do! It is a preety cheap rifle that I may be able to do something with or not. Has anyone ever had any experience with this rifle? What are your thoughts about exchanging it? Those fellas know modern and can tell you the skinny. Seeing how yours is from the 80's i believe the first 2 digits are the year date. I had a. Got me started in muzzleloading.
The stock is beech and can not take a big bullet. A gr remington conical cracked my stock in several places but was fixed with acraglass. A gun smith stripped the nipple hole and i called cva, they said to send it in and they will replace it with a new rifle. At the time, the new time was a cva staghorn, another great shooter.
Send it in! A new and updated gun is always fun. I never even thought about it! Thanks for your help! I think I will send it in because I figure if they are willing to give me a new rifle for it there must be something up with it.In my opinion, far too many people have had their lives destroyed by reportedly using cheap imported muzzleloaders as directed by manufacturer's printed instructions.

In yet another CVA incident, a man with ten years of muzzleloading under his belt was sighting in a new scope on his CVA inline. His brother and nephew were present.
