I sent a letter to CVA requesting any information regarding the history of my CVA .58 cal. Flintlock Mountain Rifle.  The following is the reply I received from Ken Morgan, CVA customer service.

"Joe,

The Mountain Rifle was made from the mid 1980s through 1994.  The flintlock was only made in the 1980s.  The exact year is impossible to determine.  Before 1995 there was no date of manufacture in the serial number so it is not possible to date your rifle exactly.  All of the barrels had a 1-66” twist.  All of the barrels were made in Spain except for one year when the factory was being renovated and the barrels were made in Vermont I believe.  The flintlock is a rare bird in the Mountain Rifle model.  Only about 500 or so were ever made, maybe less".

I disagree on years of manufacture....I have a .50 cal Mountain I purchased in early seventies (and still shoot and hunt with) and a .50 cal flinter Mountain I purchased in early 80's. Last year, my foster son bought a .54 cal Mountain that was still in a complete kit (amazingly, in the original box with all the parts for $250.00) and had the original sales receipt in the box for $99.00 dated July 1978. As a note, I see parts for all the calibers on ebay alot (you can sell the parts but not the whole gun...stoopid or what??Just seem morally wrong to me to sell a gun kit part by part...just saying).
