Lawrenceville, GA - CVA introduced its new OPTIMA V2 LR muzzleloader at the S.H.O.T. Show recently held in Las Vegas, Nevada The New CVA™ Optima V2 LR is the newest addition to CVA’s Optima family of mid-level muzzle loading rifles. The LR which stands for “Long Range,” combines an additional two inches of barrel length with the stability of a thumbhole stock, making it an ideal set up for longer range shooting.
Packed with features, the Optima™ LR features a 28" Nitride treated stainless steel barrel or a standard stainless steel barrel. Modeled after CVA’s top-of-the-line Accura V2 LR, the Optima V2 LR features the same trigger-guard with actuated breeching lever, internal parts, and neutral center-of-gravity trigger. The V2 also features CVA’s Quick Release Breech Plug (QRBP), which is finger removable with NO tools required. Unlike most thumbhole stocks, the Optima V2 LR’s is 100% ambidextrous. CVA’s own CrushZone recoil pad makes this gun comfortable to shoot, even with magnum charges. And, like all CVA muzzleloaders, a DuraSight® DEAD-ON™ one-piece scope mount, CVA’s solid aluminum PalmSaver Ramrod, and a reversible hammer spur.
“The Optima V2 LR is essentially a more affordable version of our Accura V2 LR, which after its introduction two years ago became our number one selling Accura model. We expect the Optima V2 LR to have similar appeal, as today’s shooters are looking for more long-range capability from their muzzleloaders,” commented Dudley McGarity, CVA’s brand manager.

The CVA™ Optima V2 LR Camo Nitride Rifle features a Nitride-treated 416 Stainless Steel barrel, making it the closest thing to a “corrosion-proof” muzzleloader that has ever been developed. The Nitride finish technology, known as Salt Bath Nitride, is used to treat the barrel and offers exceptional wear resistance, and unparalleled corrosion resistance in a scratch resistant, uniform black color. Already available in military applications, the Nitride process hardens the outer layer of steel, making it both more durable and corrosion-resistant than chrome, which was previously the highest standard in bore-toughening techniques. Unlike exterior ceramic coatings, the nitride process penetrates both the inside and outside of the barrel, and can withstand thousands of shots. Best of all, Nitride is self-lubricating, thus eliminating the need to add oil to your rifle for an increase in muzzleloader velocities and greater ease in reloading follow-up shots.
