I bought this off of a classified on-line. CVA, Armi San Marco, O/U .50 cal. It comes with a peep sight added.









I think I got a good deal. I paid $200 shipped. 

I hope to get it by Friday. I still have at least 2 muzzleload hunts this season. It will be nice to have 2 shots just in case.

I hope it's as nice as I think it is. :laughing5

I don't know, Ron, but if it is under 8 lbs., I'll be surprised.

I was curious to know how much is added to the weight of a rifle with 2 barrels. Having 2 shots available would be very enticing.

My 2 SxS shotguns aren't very heavy but shotgun barrels are thinner than rifle barrels.

I didn't get it today. UPS said my address was wrong. They've only been delivering here for 41 yrs.

To top it off, I missed a coyote today. I shot right over his head at 75 yards .. downhill.  :tdown2

Dont have a clue as to the weight on the over and under, but my Pedersoli Kodiak 58 cal sxs weighs 11 lbs and my 72 cal sxs Safari Express weighs 12.5 the extra barrel does add weight.

Well, I got it today. The sender or UPS up there put down a non-existent address on the other side of town. (Town is real big .. about 4 sq. miles.  Rolling Eyes)

The bores are pristine .. shiny clean with very shallow rifling like a centerfire. 

The stock is hand checkered walnut but whoever inlet the blank did it off-center so the wood on the right side of the action is very thin where the barrels swing down. This has resulted in a small chip that is really not repairable due to the thinness of the wood there.

There are a few spots of minor surface rust on the receiver and top of the barrel. Otherwise, it is a real gem. This was a real quality gun when it was manufactured and probably not inexpensive,

The sling is quality leather made by a saddle shop and the front sling attachment is made with a hole so the aluminum ramrod can be inserted.

I would be very pleased even if I had paid $500+ for this gun.

_______________________________________________________________________________

The 24" barrels with shallow rifling have a 1:28" twist. What projectiles would you guys recommend that I use??

I will appreciate all thoughts.

Ron, I forgot to put in that the gun weighs 9 lbs. 6 oz. but it balances nicely.

I have a Ruger 77 with a fluted bull barrel and it has about the same balance. Before I had the bull barrel fluted, it was top-heavy and I could hardly carry it with a sling.

Don't know much about that gun myself, but it sure is nice looking and what I deal you got. I think I need one of them. I hope she shoots good for you.

9 lbs 6 oz really isn't bad for a well balanced rifle, particularly with 2 barrels. I have a Schimmel barn gun that must be close to that weight.
I hope you have fun with it!
Ron
