*In recent months we have been receiving more and more feedback from frustrated CVA customers regarding finding components, specifically Blackhorn 209 powder, and large rifle primers.  As a manufacturer, we feel we have a responsibility to offer products that our customers can enjoy and fully utilize in the field. We are aware that there will still be smaller amounts of Blackhorn 209 powder showing up to a limited number of retailers, from time to time.  However, we do not feel there is enough Blackhorn 209 powder being manufactured to keep up with the demand for the current Paramount users, along with the other muzzleloader users that choose to shoot Blackhorn 209 powder.

Instead of adding more frustration to our customers, we will be focusing on our other models of muzzleloaders and centerfire rifles at this time.  Our team will be closely monitoring the Blackhorn 209 powder situation and will assess when it makes sense as a brand to restore production of the Paramount line of muzzleloaders.  We appreciate your feedback and your understanding.  

If you’re still looking to purchase a long range muzzleloader, there are currently a number of retailers that have the CVA Paramounts in stock.  Because we want you to utilize your purchase, we want you to be aware that if you do so, the powder and large rifle primers may be much more difficult to find than in recent years.*

The PARAMOUNT™ and PARAMOUNT™ PRO are unlike any other muzzleloading rifle on the market. These rifles were developed and designed to handle “super-magnum” propellant charges – and thus provides the higher velocities necessary for killing shots at 300 yards and beyond.


New for 2023 is the PARAMOUNT™ PRO V2, our lightest and most versatile PARAMOUNT ever. Featuring a custom designed Grayboe™ stock that is 8 ounces lighter than its predecessor in .45 caliber, and 2 ounces lighter in .50 caliber, this new stock also features an adjustable cheek riser that can be set high for use with the most powerful optics or low for use with the new Micro-Adjust Williams® peep sight. The new Micro-Adjust Williams® peep sight is offered as standard equipment on the .50 caliber, and the .45 caliber is drilled and tapped to accept the peep sight as well. Removable stock spacers allow for perfect LOP adjustment for any shooter and the Limbsaver® recoil pad substantially reduces felt recoil. Of course, the PARAMOUNT PRO V2 has all the great performance features of the standard PARAMOUNT, but it is also upgraded with a premium TriggerTech® fully adjustable trigger and a Cerakote® barrel finish that perfectly complements the stock’s hand painted camo.
