Muzzleloaders: CVA Accura V2?
« on: November 19, 2020, 07:57:39 PM »
Just wanting to get into muzzleloaders and found a decent package deal. Then again, not quite legal for Idaho if Iím one of the chosen few to get to hunt it next year. Is there a better option(not meaning cheaper)?

Iíve had one for many years and have been very happy. I originally bought the NW legal version which is legal in Idaho, but bought the 209 conversion kit, which is relatively inexpensive and easy to install.

I shoot one here in Wa, scope less of coarse. I installed peep sights on mine. I don't know if blackhorn is legal in Idaho but I'm sure the CVA will shoot lead bullets just fine. I would cast my own or shoot bullets from Bullshop in Saco Montana. Can you use a shotgun primer in Idaho? That I don't know. I have killed 2 deer in 2 years here in Wa and I'm heading out next week for deer and elk. The CVA is a fine weapon and very deadly.

Ive got a northwest legal optima that i love. Plan on upgrading to the accura or opyima with nitirde coating this year. I dont think youll have any issues in idaho with the nw legal version, or converting to that.

Unfortunately I missed the deal so still keeping my eye out for one or something similar.

I picked one up here used for 225 bucks, really great shape.  Did the 209 conversion, sighted in and put a 6x5 bull to sleep with it at 90 yards this year off hand.  Very accurate muzzy

The CVA Accura V2 is a really good muzzleloader. The base model (without a scope) is legal to use in Washington and is a very good all around choice. Buy a good peep sight for it and you'll be all set.
CVA DOES make a Northwest Legal conversion kit that will work on the Wolf, Optima, and Accura. It costs something like $30-40. So, it's a pretty simple matter to switch out the breech plug and firing pin assembly (and use legal bullets, propellants, and primers) to make that muzzleloader legal to use in Idaho or Oregon if you so choose. I used to do that all the time when I'd go back and forth between Washington and Texas back when Washington had more restrictive muzzleloader regulations.

If you're looking to get into muzzleloaders, check out Muzzleloaders101.com. Sign up for that free E-Book to learn some useful best practices on how to make sure your muzzleloader goes off at the moment of truth, then sign up for the Muzzleloaders 101 course. You'll learn the ins and outs of muzzleloader regulations (to include detailed descriptions of what's legal to use in Idaho), get some good muzzleloader, propellant, bullet, and primer recommendations, and receive step-by-step instructions on how to use it all safely and effectively.

Plus, you'll also get access to some exclusive discounts on muzzleloader gear so you can save money as you get yourself outfitted. Heck, we're even giving away a free CVA Optima to one lucky person who signs up.

If I had to get a NW legal here's where Id shop and the one I would buy. Nitride finish is awesome on mine.  https://www.muzzle-loaders.com/brands/cva-accura-v2tm-nitride-northwest-legal.html

Not unless you just want to get something different.
I've hunted extensively with traditional percussion cap muzzleloaders, break-action muzzleloaders, and modern bolt-action muzzleloaders. They're all great in their own way, but current production break-action muzzleloaders (like the CVA Accura) are probably the easiest to use and best overall value for your money.
