the main problem with all these single shots - h&r, cva, traditions, henry, etc - is their very Very VERY heavy trigger pull. h&r has/had surfaced hardened sears that you don't wanna mess with, dunno about the others. lotta wailing going on about the henry s/s triggers. i'd love a .357mag s/s rifle, but not those, not with their terrible triggers.
The CVA Triggers on the Scout V2 and Hunter are actually excellent triggers. Unfortunately they don't offer either of the rifles chambered in .357 Mag. They offer .44 Mag in both rifles, as well as .444, 450 Bushmaster, .45-70.
They do offer the .357 Mag in the Scout V2 Pistol.
Their triggers are the best of any of the single shots, by a long shot. Their triggers are also better than all the budget bolt actions that I have shot. Being a hammer gun, it does have a slightly slower lock time than the bolts, but the excellent trigger more than makes up for that in my experience.
I have a Scout V2 in .450 Bushmaster that I'll put up against any rifle configuration in that chambering. It will outshoot my Ruger American in .450 Bushmaster every time, and it is no slouch. I even removed the Marksman (Accu-Trigger clone) and dropped in a Timney. The CVA still wins, every time! One ragged hole groups at 100 yards are very common.
I also have the CVA Optima Pistol, .50 cal muzzleloader that will shoot one hole groups at 50 yards benched. The trigger on it is also excellent.
