CVA was founded way back in 1971 as Connecticut Valley Arms™, specializing in traditional side-lock muzzleloading rifles and build-it-yourself rifle kits. From those early beginnings, CVA developed a reputation for providing guns and accessories that provide our customers with the best values available. Today our product line has expanded to include the most technically advanced modern in-line muzzleloaders on the market. And we are very proud that CVA has now been America’s #1 selling muzzleloader brand for over a decade.
We’ve accomplished this success by continually developing the technical innovations that redefine consumer expectations, and at prices that they can afford. All of our guns are designed and assembled in our state-of-the art production facility located in the little town of Bergara in northern Spain — a region that has been famous for gun making for hundreds of years.
Every barrel that we use today is also made in Bergara at the BERGARA BARRELS factory, which, like CVA, is wholly owned by our parent company. Plus, every CVA rifle component, whether manufactured on-site or sourced from other manufacturers, is produced under strict ISO-9001 quality standards to ensure consistency as well as quality.
These quality components, combined with our precision barrel manufacturing and assembly processes, ensure that CVA is able to consistently produce guns with greater accuracy, more features, and better quality for the dollar than any similarly priced gun from any other brand. Bottom line, it’s just a better gun.
Muzzleloading and Beyond
Over the past several years, we’ve taken our offering beyond muzzleloading. CVA’s top of the line gun, the APEX, is actually a muzzleloader or a center-fire – providing interchangeability between 16 different calibers. And the new SCOUT V2, our latest center-fire only rifle, has redefined what an affordably priced single shot rifle can be.
However, we have certainly not forgotten our muzzleloading roots. In fact, we’ve made them better than ever. For example, our entire line of ACCURA V2 and MR muzzleloading rifles are guaranteed to be the most accurate muzzleloaders you’ve ever shot, or we’ll refund your purchase price. And the moderately priced OPTIMA V2 line comes with more high-end features for the price than you’ve ever thought possible. Finally, the WOLF has been substantially upgraded over the years, and provides more desired features than any other entry level muzzleloader on the market today.
This commitment to quality and value, at every price point, ultimately gives you a rifle that you can count on when you’re presented with the shot of a lifetime. CVA is also committed to enhancing your shooting experience by offering you a complete line of loading, shooting and cleaning accessories. These accessories will not only help you to be a better and safer hunter, but they will protect and enhance the performance of your CVA muzzleloader.
Included here at www.cva.com is a large library of videos to help you be an effective, safe, and successful shooter and hunter, be it with our guns or any other brand. Simply visit our Video Library, choose a topic of interest and sit back and enjoy. We even have the most complete muzzleloading instructional video ever made, MUZZLELOADING BASICS, available right here.
