    Comments about Blackpowder Products Optima 209 .50 Break-Action Muzzleloader with Scope and Gun Case, Thumbhole:

    This is my first black powder rifle. After much research I settled on CVA because of the value and on the Optima over the Wolf because I wanted the Thumbhole. I love overall look and feel of the gun. It is well balanced, feels light when you pick it up and the thumbhole makes for a very comfortable feel/fit when mounting to shoot. It is easy to clean with the screw out breech plug and only one screw to remove fore stock to break down. I have not had a chance to shoot it yet but from everything I have read about the factory bore sighting I am expecting the sighting process to be a breeze. So far, this gun is exactly what I was looking for - a good quality and shooting gun that is well built that with proper care will be passed on to my children and grandchildren.

        Comments about Blackpowder Products Optima 209 .50 Break-Action Muzzleloader with Scope and Gun Case, Thumbhole:

        Very nice the way this thing is set up. The thumbhole makes it very comfortable. Unlike Traditions firearms, the ramrod is made of metal instead of plastic. The break action is a God Send, and the tool less design makes this one of the best muzzleloading firearms I have ever owned, and the price is right on.

              I did a lot of research on different muzzle loaders before choosing to buy the CVA Optima. To say I'm impressed would be downplaying the rifle. Couldn't have asked for a better rifle. I was planning on only using it for hunting. After shooting it though, it may go into the rotation when I go to the range.
