Bought my first CVA, I've owned several in lines all were knights except one TC but thought I would try something new this time. Deer season opens tomorrow and I went out and did a quick sight in today at 100 yards. I picked up some Scorpion PT 240's and some Maximus 250's. I noticed after I ordered the Maximus that you should shoot them in a 1:24 or faster twist so I wasn't expecting them to shoot well at all. The load I used was 77 grains of Blackhorn 209 with CCI magnum primers. The two three shot groups were the final 6 shots fired now swabbing or waiting for the barrel to cool. I am pretty pleased with the gun overall I have one issue though that I'm going to contact CVA about but it will have to wait till after hunting season.

Nice looking set up and looks like there will be meat in the freezer this year, nice shooting.
What it the one problem that you are having, if you don't mind asking.

Thanks! I think this gun might end up being a better shooter than any of the knights  I've had. When they machined the threads for the trigger adjustment screw they cut through the receiver. I noticed it when I took the gun apart to clean it and had the buttstock off. I'm afraid it will eventually fail. I really like the gun otherwise, I also noticed the finish is coming off around the firing pin bushing after todays first 15 shots scratch  Not sure why other than the primer fouling being hot why that happened but I think I will end up with a new receiver so I'll find out if it happens again

That finish on the inside of the receiver will ALWAYS come off. Its basically paint. Not a big deal IMO. I actually used steel wool and buffed it off as the alloy frame color was a close match LOL.

EXCELLENT first time out to the range!

Primer fouling can be pretty good in the CVA rifles due to the loose headspace adjustment to allow for a larger variety of primers to be used.

Shim Kit fit,

Or the O ring fix which is very simple.

Thanks Frontier, I thought I read in a couple of places about the finish coming off. Not really as concerned about it as I am the threads coming through the receiver but I'm sure CVA will fix me up. I read about the shimming but I don't want to chance the primers going off when I close it up if I accidentally use a different primer. It's not to bad really, wasn't even noticeable until I got over a dozen shots or so. I can't wait to take the time to actually work up a load for this gun.

Has anyone here ever had a barrel made for one of these? I was thinking about a 1:24 or 1:22 barrel. Might just do a smokeless Apex in 45 with a fast twist though.. that would be fun.

Decent groups with each bullet.  But each had one flyer.  

Questions
1. Was said flyer in each group a particular shot, as in 1st or 3rd shot for each bullet?
2. What sabot did you use?  Is that in the pic a MMP?

The sabot used with the scorpion 240's was the supplied black crush rib. The sabot I used on the Maximus (.44 cal)were Harvester green crush rib. The second shot made the flyer on the Maximus and third shot on the Scorpion.

I wouldnt worry about it at all. Normally just a slight movement that does it. I did that the other day with my flintlock and the 3rd shot went straight through the first.

OK if you say so.  But are you sure?   scratch That green sabot in the pic doesn't look like a crushed rib as it has not ribs.  Ya know?  I'm just curious.

I received the lighter/shorter Maximus bullet so I am going to resight in with them. They should shoot better since they are designed for a 1:30 or faster twist.
