PostSubject: CVA Accura V2: Concerns   January 31st 2016, 6:00 am

Wife gave me a Cabela's Hawken years ago. Love that woman!  Great fun to shoot.  I've taken a few deer with it and knocked down a few hogs.  But iron sights are becoming too hard for me to use.  That' my excuse to get a scoped in-line for large game.  I know I "could" put a scope on the Hawken, but I ain't gonna do it!

Soooo, I'm liking what I read about the Accura and especially the looks of the Accura V2 MR.  My only concern is the overmolding and the "rubber" inserts on the stock on the Accuras.  
    -Will the overmolding get "sticky" in years to come?  
    -Will the rubber inserts start to peel out or fall off? 

I want this gun to last my lifetime.  If either concern is likely the case, I'll go with the Optima.  But I sure like that MR!

Hello Old Smoke,  First off......thank you for not wanting to put a scope on your Cabelas Hawken.  Very Happy
Don't worry about the over molding.  I still have the original Accura MR and have not had any problems with the stock at all.  It has never even come to mind.  If you take care of it, it is a life time rifle.  Besides.......CVA's warranty is "LIFETIME".  If you ever have a problem they'll fix it.

One more thing....having two muzzleloader is a good thing.  Very Happy

Thanks, SJ.  

"Original" makes it sound like is been around awhile.  How long have you had that "original" Accura MR?

Well....... I can't remember exactly but a wild guess is 4 years for sure, maybe closer to 5?  I've owned a couple Accura V2s also for a short time.  That's a nice rifle also, I especially liked the "thumbhole" stock.  My brother shoots the V2.  I like the MR because it is shorter and a little lighter, but everyone has different reasons for liking things.  You can't go wrong with either one.

That about settles it for me. The MR is, as you say, shorter and a tad lighter. It also has "standard" sling swivel attachments instead of molded in attachments.  I think I'm going to love this rifle!

Now.  What scope to put on it?  What bullet?  How much powder?  Which powder?

I'll be busy for weeks! Laughing

Thanks for the insights.

I recommend giving Carlos with Ed's Gun Shop a call.  He'll give you a good price and start you out right with all those questions you just asked!

Will do.  

Have you ever heard anyone have one of the "molded in" sling swivel attachment break off?  I have not found any mention of it anywhere, but it just seems like it could happen and then the rifle is falling over backward to the ground.  Don't why, but that thought just sticks with me.

I have, but only one instance where a fellow was shooting from a bench and I think he had the stock positioned where the rear swivel holder was contacting a hard surface.   Never had any trouble with mine on my original Accura V1.   I do like the Accura MR sling studs much better though... and the fact that the sling includes good metal swivels.   Haven't shot my MR yet.

I haven't shot mine yet.......but I can say that the handling qualities, and fit/finish on my Accura MR Nitride are quite impressive.

As for scopes, I went with (should be released this week) the 30mm Minox  ZX5i 1-5X24mm

Mountain Lion is open all year in each unit, up until an individual units' quota is filled.....which doesn't happen in most every unit until very late in the year, if it happens at all.  Not sure if my area's quota's ever get met.  The rain-forest is to dense for a high success rate (relatively speaking......toughest critter to hunt in Oregon).

Should I be fortunate enough to fill a Cougar tag, I am allowed to purchase an additional Cougar tag.  

We have serious issues with them concerning livestock/domestic animals.  The banning of hound-hunting for bear and cougar years back has caused them to be severely over-populated. A 45lb cat was roaming a suburban neighborhood here that was solid houses in my town 6 blocks from any wooded area(it was also my neighborhood......cat was spotted in the middle of the street directly in front of my house though I never saw it).  It had no fear of humans, and was killing neighborhood deer and pets to then be stashed in a small wooded spot.  Neighbors thought it was a bobcat when first seen due to it's small size.  County wound-up tracking, and killing it at it's stash spot.  It was likely forced-out of the woods by adult lions.
