Default Where did all the .35 Remmy's go?

I got the taste of CVA Scout V2 (45/70) and I was wanting another!

Started cruising the net for a .35 Remington and they are nowhere to be found. Many reports of excellent accuracy. Why in the world did CVA drop that chambering? That is my favorite woods chambering for deer hunting.

I've got a Handi .35 Rem, but that Scout V2 is so sweet!!

Still living under the curse, but one of these days I will shed this body, be clothed with an immortal one, and everything will be good.

Just a guess, but I would say low sales on the .35 Rem. They do make them in .35 Whelen, and I might cold be tempted by that or a .45/70 myself. I see that CVA is now offering a bolt action centerfire rifle.

I'm in the process of assembling an H&R one, just waiting on all the pieces to get here.

Iíve got a stainless/synthetic CVA in 35 Remington, itís a very good shooter. I highly recommend picking one up if you get the chance.

Your most important weapon sits on top of you shoulders, everything else is just equipment.

That is what I had picked out and found on clearance for $246 at a store up north. By the time the next weekend had rolled around for me to venture up and get it, inventory had went to zero. They would not do a sale and pickup.

Have you checked out the Traditions Outfitter G2? They are producing it in .35 Rem I see.

Thanks for the suggestion.

#1 - Don't like the barrel release (just like the CVA Hunter) location.
#2 - Over and above the Scout V2 price even before the closeout sale.

Guess I will just have to be happy with our 2 Handis until I can find someone that is willing to turn loose of their Scout V2.

I honestly didn't know Traditions was making center fire rifles until a couple days ago. I knew CVA has been for several years now, I wish I would have picked up a CVA Apex.

I have a Traditions G2 Outfitter in 357 Mag/Max. It handles nicely, has a short hammer with an extension, floated barrel, and the trigger can be adjusted easier than any Handi ever made. It shoots real well too! It's probably gonna be my "Forever Maxi." It weighs 7lbs 2ox with a Nikon ProStaff 3-9x40 in Burris SS Zee rings. It will soon get a Leupold VX3i 2.5-8x36 which should put it down under 7lbs.

I couldn't be happier with it.

Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem

just proof that some research and trial and error and knowledge you make a great rifle. People expect too much out of a sub 400 rifle.
