View Full Version : Hey Old Guys CVA
Back in the dark ages CVA made BP kits, Hawkens, Kentuckys, what have you. Does anyone do that today? I've seen a couple high-end kits, but a project for my grandson and I shouldn't set me back a grand or more. Jim
Try Gunbrocker.com I see kits for sale on there from time to time.
Grabed my 2009 Dixie Gun Works catalog. They show some lyman rifle kits starting around $400. You might want to check them out online or order a catalog. The catalogs usually have more items. For fun, order one of the antique arms catalogs.
My first black powder rifle was a big bore CVA kit. I had some ignition problems with it. When I finally removed the drum assembly I discovered that it was more like a bolt with a hole drilled almost all the way through it that was screwed in untill it hit the opposite side of the bore. The percussion cap flame had a long way to travel to find the powder.
Another good place is "Track of the Wolf"
Also "Possibles Shop" and "Sitting Fox."
Love them smokepoles.
Thanks all. Went to Possible Shop. Showed my guy what they had and he thought the Hawken was the neatest thing going. Ordered that and a Crockett Pistol. I told him we'd do the little gun first for practice and he could give it to his mom for Christmas. He just got home from school and came over and asked if it was here yet. It's going to be a long weekend.
:icon_lol:If I see any old guys , I'll be sure to ask.:icon_lol:
Sportsmans guide and Bass Pro have a Kentucky long rifle kit for about $250. I built one and shoot the steel at 200yrds all the time.
I have a new old stock CVA .50 Cal Hawken Kit that I would be glad to part with. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
email sent in the event the original poster is not interested.............
I built a couple of kit guns and used to shoot them when I was into BP.
Received the kit from slumlord today, have to work this evening, so no time to drool over it,
