Received my CVA Hawken with .50 cal & .54 cal barrels today and was pleasantly surprised how nice the set is.  I checked the twist rate on both barrels with a tight patch and the rod makes a quarter turn at 16 1/2 inches.  So I "believe".... each barrel has a twist rate of 1:66 for patched round balls, which I'm very happy with.   Everything is in great shape, crisp shiny bores.

Looks like a good set up! Especially that slow twist 54!

You are going to enjoy it. Mine is very solid and consistent.

Wimp! I would be out! bounce
 
Of course, it is still to GD hot here in Florida so I can brag. Evil or Very Mad

I just hope it gets to below 70 for Alafia.
