    Just bought the gun and haven't tried it out yet but after looking at CVA and Thompson Center this one just felt right! I can't wait to get it to the range! Very attractive design and as I said, feels great. Check one out and see if you don't feel the same!

      • Q:

        I live in Washington state and we can not hunt with 209 primer.
        So my question is does this convert over to #11 cap.
        Asked on 8/23/2010 by chopper from Marysville Wa.

        • A:

          Traditions makes a Northwest version that has #11 cap breech. However I don't think it will convert in this model.
