PostSubject: CVA Apex 30-06   March 31st 2010, 7:51 pm

CVA Apex had been sitting at the gun store since early Feb of this year! Apparently they lost my phone number so it sat there and sat and sat. In fact is sat there so long that when they handed me the padded tool kit, it was covered in dust! Laughing Ah well, all that is important is that shes in my arms now. And man what a sweety! The Apex comes with an adjustable trigger 2.5 - 5lbs, Scope rail is included and so i just put a set of cheapies on until i can get some Durasights set up on it. The Bushnell is off of the Optima. The stock is really comfortable too, it has a rubberized texture and the palm/forearm are rubber. You can get a real rock solid hold on this rifle with the rubberized coating. Action breaks open smooth and quite, i would like it if they actually pinned the barrels on the Optima/Accura as it feels a lot more solid.

This one is in 30-06 caliber and it is sighted in after 6 shots! Ready to rock N roll at the NRA on friday at 100 and 200 yard ranges. We'll see how she does then. Trigger is another creep/grit free set up. CVA Has done an excellent job with their triggers lately.

I sure would not mind trying that one. I'm looking forward to hearing your report.

Your last picture should be in a advertising ad or a catalog, nice job.

the '06 due to the stock design feels like my 30-30. Thats one thing the Apex has really surprised me on.

Does this mean you're slipping over to the dark side, and away from BP shooting?
Use the force Gander, use the force!

Havent picked up any other barrels yet. Maybe a .45 and a smoothbore shot gun barrel later on. It will mostly live life as a muzzle loader.

Nice looking gun, but I would have preferred a 45/70 Gov barrel to the 30-06.

Let us know how the BP barrel shoots and the group and MV.

Muley, I'm glad to hear that. I am hoping that the new gun will be that way. I will be in the woods i a month for ML season here in Va. I will enjoy my time in the woods with it, I'm sure. I am still thinking of the idea of getting an Apex. I like the centerfire option.

FG was the hinge loose? That was one thing I loved about the Apex I had was that the action was very tight. It wouldn't even open all the way you had to pry it open the last little bit which was great.

No but from what i hear, the bigger pin can improve accuracy even more so i figured what the hell.

Yeah I think it can if there is some room for a tighter pin. If it is already tight I don't see how putting a bigger pin in will make it more accurate. I don't think it will get worse of course but not sure how much it will help? Another thing is that if it is already tight you could possibly be making that hinge pin hole bigger which of course will never accept the factory pin again or at least accept it the same as before. I'm not sure about the fit of yours but I would have never considered putting one in mind but yours may be just a tiny bit looser and the 1x pin might just make it perfect.

I have wanted an Apex for a very long time in 45-70 and they stopped production. Oh Happy Days Carlos called me and asked if I still wanted one as he got six in the other day I pulled my credit card out so fast it almost caught fire. I live in Delaware and there is talk that the state is considering allowing rifles only pistol rounds. So I will leave it as it is if this doesn't become law I will send it to the gunsmith and have it converted to ML'er

when I had so many problems with my Mountain Rifle, the 
CEO ended up replacing it with an Apex!!!



Since getting, I have harvested a few deer with it.  I love it.  I also have a CF barrel in .243 Win. and it is a tack driver!!
