CVA has completely redesigned the OPTIMA - keeping all of the best features of the original while adding or improving many others. In fact, you'll find features on the new OPTIMA that are only found on other manufacturers' most expensive guns. CVA's new OPTIMA includes our QRBP (Quick Release Breech Plug) - the only truly "tool-free removal" breech plug on the market today. Even after 20 or more shots, the QRBP comes out with just a twist of the fingers - try that with any other "speed breech" system.
All OPTIMA rifles feature fluted barrels made of 416 grade stainless steel - and that's REAL STAINLESS STEEL, not some nickel plating or spray-on paint. Real stainless steel protects against corrosion on the outside and the inside of the barrel. The new OPTIMA also has the same trigger design as our most expensive guns. This "zero center of gravity" design concept provides an incredibly light and smooth trigger pull with virtually no creep. The breech opens easily with just a touch of the breeching lever, which is located in the front of the trigger guard. The OPTIMA is available in both standard and thumbhole stock designs. Both are 100% ambidextrous, and available in either black or Realtree Hardwoods Green camo. On the standard stock model, the barrel is set up with all metal DuraSight Fiber Optic sights. The thumbhole model stock is ergonomically designed for scope shooters with DuraSight integral scope mounts included as standard equipment.
