opinions on blackpowder rifles
 
Hey guys....I'm looking to buy a blackpowder rifle and am not sure which is the best "bang" for the buck. I was online doing some research and it looks like the CVA Optima .50 cal or CVA v2 .50 cal seem to be really good choices as they both have the easy removable breech plug. What are your opinions on these or do you know of other rifles that are user friendly....thanks in advance guys/gals

By the way, I'm not looking anything other than the break open style and quick breech plug removal.

The CVA Optima will fit the bill for your needs.

Ive got one of their basic inline models with the easy remove breach. I really like it. Im very new to blackpowder the cva line is excellent for getting your feet wet

The extra cost of a Thompson Center is worth it and not really that much extra.
