I got my first SxS blackpowder shotgun a couple of weeks ago and really like it. I like it so much that I couldn't resist buying this CVA 12 ga. SxS today. I measured the bores at the muzzle and the right one is .726 while the left one is .729. My other shotgun measures .735.

Do you think that there is some choke in the barrels or is it just a Spanish way of making a 12 gauge?
How would I measure the actual diameter of the barrels a few inches down the muzzle? My calipers are way too big.

You'd have to pour a lead slug down it and measure off that.

What a beauty! I dont know where the heck you are getting these. I'd love a single shot cva trapper shotgun.

They aren't real cheap. I had to give $300 for this one. I got it on the THR Classifieds. The guy lives 45 miles from me. We met half way.

Not bad at all IMO. Plus you were able to check it out in person, doesn't happen very often!

There is really no fool proof way of measuring down a tapered bore that I know of.

Maybe that is a Mod and Full choke barrel. I lot of the old shotties seem to have full chokes. I'm not sure if that also applies to BP shotties.

I looked up the prices of these things in a 1984 Gun Digest and they sold for more than $300 back then.  The dollar was worth about 1/3 more then ... OUCH!

You can tell that it's a CVA though. Back in the late 70s I bought a couple of CVA kit guns. They were made up of shoddy parts that took lots of work to fit. This shotgun has ill-fitting loose screws holding the ramrod holders (the correct name escapes me right now*), the left lock mainspring is very weak, and the ramrod has grain run-out and is warped. It is basically a new gun that has been fired little. The locks were spotless underneath and no trace of rust in either barrel.
My Navy Arms Pietta is of higher quality and has none of the imperfections that the CVA does.

* I just thought of it -ramrod "pipes".  I always want to call them ferrules but ferrules adhere to the object.

Pedersoli also makes a very nice BP shotgun but very expensive.
