CVA has completely redesigned the Optima™ keeping all of the best features of the original while upgrading others. In fact, you'll find features on the new Optima that are only found on other manufacturer's most expensive guns. The new Optima has a QR Breech Plug System, the only truly tool-free removal breech plug. All feature accuracy-guaranteed, fluted barrels made of 416-grade stainless steel real stainless steel that protects against corrosion inside and out. An improved trigger system also enhances accuracy with a zero-center-of-gravity design that provides an incredibly light and smooth trigger pull with virtually no creep. The breech opens easily with just a touch of the button located in front of the trigger guard. Ambidextrous stock. All-metal DuraSight™ fiber-optic sights. 209 ignition. .50 caliber only. Models are available with black synthetic or camo stocks, a Cabela's 3-9x40mm muzzleloader scope with rings and bases and a starter kit.
