The barrel in the photo is from our CVA Frontier Carbine, .50 caliber caplock with 1990 prefix to its serial number. Its barrel has an exceptionally clean and well-preserved bore. We lack the technological expertise to take good bore shot photographs on this type muzzleloader, but we always try to describe every one of our items so that buyers can tell what they are getting even without a photograph. We have run copy in print-only Gun List, Gun Report, and Shotgun News since the 1960s. The only detractions to this rifle’s barrel are slight toning visible near the muzzle end and perhaps a slight amount of wavy roughness at places in the bore. If this barrel’s interior is not Excellent, it is certainly a strong Very Good. Exterior of the bore, including the CVA Hawken-type sights, is Very Good to excellent with scuffing and light white streaking affecting no more than 15 percent of the surface area. There is some blue scarring near the nipple, where the original blue nipple thimble has been replaced with a stainless aftermarket flash tube thimble. The single brass ramrod thimble is a nice amber tone, and there is a considerable amount of blue-blackness on the brass cap of the ramrod, which is original.
The hammer and its lock are Very Good finish wise, with spotty toning affecting perhaps 20 percent of their area. The hammer screw is replacement steel and has mild stress evidence. All the brass furniture on the stock are a nice amber tone with no other detractions. The Wedge Pin, however, is dinged on its reverse edge and sits loosely. It needs to be replaced. The stock has a very nice glossy finish that is affected by scuffing, light to moderate scratching, or slight weathering on 20 percent or less of its surface area. The trigger adjustment screw is not stressed, nor are the trigger guard’s screws. There is about 10 percent rust residue on the trigger housing plate, but that is not conspicuous since it is well embedded into the stock.
Rifles like this are hard to come by, maintained and serviced so well despite the normal nicks and scuffs from an active hunting life. This one is single trigger, but emulates Hawken styling and is eminently serviceable. We believe it is in better condition that it was when it came from the factory in Spain in 1990. We’re offering it for only $ 69.95
