#209 primer conversion
« on: June 11, 2018, 11:25:24 AM »
I'm looking at CVA for a new muzzleloader, and due to the restrictions being lifted, I am beginning to look into a #209 conversion kit. My question is, are there a bunch of different kinds? Are they specific to certain makes and models of guns? Any info would be much appreciated.

Since you're buying a new CVA, there's no need for a conversion kit. Just buy one that's already set up for 209 primers.

:yeah:
It's just a different breech plug to go between 209, musket cap, etc. for CVAs.  At least for the Accura/Optima/Wolf models.

And I believe also the firing pin needs changing

If you are running a optima/wolf/accura you need to change the firing pin for sure.

You're buying a new gun. Buy one that uses 209 primers, which will be most. No conversion will be necessary. I believe the only states left that don't allow 209 ignition is Oregon and Idaho. So the standard, inline muzzleloader is made for 209 primers, and 209 primers only.

Why not get one that uses Large rifle primers that'll shoot a 300gr bullet at 2400fps and will outshoot most rifles?

Primers really do not have that much to do with velocity.  Velocity is still a product of powder load and projectile weight.

Isn't a large rifle primer less corrosive/cleaner than a 209?

I think you may be correct on the cleaner part... but I really did not like continually de-capping and recapping cartridge cases to shoot with.  If you are shooting 209 primers - shoot the mildest primer you can.  Wish they still made the Remington 209-4 primer.

So, just to be clear- by allowing 209 the state did away with the whole “exposed cap” thing right?  CVA doesn’t make a Northwest 209 conversion that I’m aware of.

Correct.  Exposed to the elements was removed from the regs.
