Range report on CVA Scout 44 magnum
« on: December 02, 2010, 05:30:56 pm »
got a cva scout 44 mag wendsday(12-1-10), put a tasco scope on it that i had in the gun safe, sighted it in at 100 yards this morning (12-2-10) with winchester 240 grain JSP's........very impressed , the fit and finish of this gun is great. comes with a real good scope mount. below pics are of a 100 yard target and a 3 pointer that i shot with it this evening (70 yards right behind the shoulder , man what a hole ) i;ve had the other 44 mag single shots and they don't compare to the CVA . REAL NICE GUN FOR THE MONEY $290 out the door. ;)

Thanks for the report.  Just bought one Mon.  Our firearm season is over, until next year, so I have a lot of time to tune the ole girl up.  I'm impressed with the fit and finish of the gun.

Looks like backstraps on the grill buddy. I shot my buck with the 240gr. Winchester ammo too and it hammered him.
The Scout is a great gun... I love mine. ;)

This info is from CS at the number provided

*All caliber barrels are extractor.
*The factory trigger pull is 3-6 lbs. You can have it lowered by sending it back. I couldn't find out where back actully was.
*The camo stock set shown on the CVA video supposedly is N/A on the Scout.
*The Dead On factory (all in one) mount ring height will accomodate a 40mm scope objective. If you choose to go lower the DS412 S(stainless) or B (black) rail ($13.95)needs to be ordered, and scope rings purchased for weaver style rail.
*Barrel Twist Rates are 1 in 10 for 7mm-08 and 30-06. They indicated the Whelen was also 1-10 the .270 1 in 20(might not be right) and also the .243 1 in 20(might not be right) No info was available on the 44 mag whatsoever.
* The CS rep was very friendly but not real knowledgeable and the info he was given was not very complete.
* The phone number I used is 770-449-4687
This was all I could get.
