    CVA Apollo .54 Cal. Blackpowder rifle!

    I don't think I'll ever shoot this gun again so if anyone wants it, let me know. I have a bunch of supplies to go with it, too. Local pickup in Land O Lakes/Wesley Chapel area. I can ship it to you for about $35 or so but I can't ship the powder.

    Thanks for the note. I have a CVA Optima in 50 cal. My first four digits match but not the last two. Was the Apollo apart of this recall Rick? Good catch swamphunter!

    No.

    I called them, and the rifle predates the '95-'96 model recalls, plus it's a .54 cal, and the recalls were for .50 cal rifles.

    I have it apart, got it functioning, and just received a replacement action cover to replace the original that was broken and rusted in place.

    CVA no longer has parts for one that old, but they gave me contact info for a supplier that has parts.

    I have a bit more rust removal and polishing to do, and then I'll be re-bluing those areas.

    Most of the metal has a very good high polish and bluing, and the walnut stock has some nice figure, and the high gloss finish is in very good shape.

    I definitely owe Mr. Sir a good bit of 'smithing services!

    I appeciate y'all looking out for me.
