has double set triggers, fiber optic sights, short round barrel and rubber butt pad..
sorry for small pic but copied it off my e-mail, a guy is wanting 75.00 for it says no rust inside or out.. is this a Spanish made CVA or? tried 2 ways to post pic hope one works.

I don't know these older CVA's like Jon does, but I think the only ones made in the USA were the mountain rifles. This gun isn't one of those.

yeah not sure if I should buy it or not, have heard the ones with fiber optic sights that their triggers sucked even with the set trigger. Cant see it being worth much more then 75.00

scratch

Sounds like the previous owner/owners have done a few modifications to the rifle. If your interested and if it's possible, ask the owner if you can check it out and shoot it. Maybe at one time it had buck horn sights and no shoulder pad. Just a thought scratch

If it's in good shape, it should be worth $75. It wouldn't weigh a lot with that short barrel.

I'm no CVA expert, however, I would have said it was a CVA Plainsman but you described it having a "round" barrel.  I believe the Plainsman models all have octagon barrels.

Well ended up buying the gun for 70.00, its a CVA Mountain Man 1:32 twist, the set trigger is not working going to see if I can adjust the adj. screw and get it to work..someone has put a set of Williams Adjustable fiber optic sights on it and the screw that holds the hammer on has been replace, other then that the gun is in really good shape bore looks close to perfect and wood is in good condition.. the guy said it shoots good..

Never knew they made a 1-32 version. Funny they call it a Mountain Man with a modern twist.

have to retract the part about a perfect bore, he left it just dirty enough to where some mild pitting in 1st 6 inches of the bore couldn't be seen, bore doesn't look bad though should shoot decent..with that twist it should shoot sabots really well. Im  saying its a Colorado Mountain Man because after Colorado there a MM.. I know CVA made one called this so guessing this is one..

Wonder if it stands for musket magnum?(found out it stand for Mag muzzleloader)
Well just figured out this is the gun I went to look at in Feb. and the guy wanted a 100.00 for it, didn't buy it then... I think he tapped it for scope mounts or had it done.. sucks getting old didn't remember looking at it until I found a old post here about it:)



Well heres a edit to my last edit, found same gun with synthetic stock and it says its fac. drilled for scope mounts and it says it came with Williams fiber optic sights but it looks like it has a Optima front fiber optic side as theres a dove tail under it.. if it shoots like crap it will become a wall hanger, guessing this gun has wrong stock also..

Yep, it means Colorado Musket Magnum.  They are pretty decent guns.

Did they come with wood stocks also, not even sure if it has original stock on it?

Anyone have any ideas how to get the set trigger working, tried the adjustment screws and got nothing, if you push forward on the set trigger the gun will fire, if you pull back to set it it does nothing..
