Best Seller: CVA Scout

Fourth top-Selling Single Shot Rifle of 2020

posted on June 26, 2021

The CVA Scout was one of the most popular singe-shot rifles sold in 2020, for a lot of good reasons. That list is a long one, but starts with the company’s well-deserved reputation for quality in all of its products. Add the fact that the Scout is available in 10 different chamberings—some of them in a compact version of the rifle—and it’s easy to see why they are hard to keep in stock.

Scouts are break-action rifles that ship with a DuraSight scope rail on the receiver to ease optic mounting. The synthetic stocks are ambidextrous and the hammer spur can be reversed. They include a CrushZone recoil pad, all have a 14" length-of-pull. Depending on model, the metal has either a blued or have a stainless finish.

To load, the receiver rotates open for inserting a round in the chamber. An extractor removes spent brass, but there is no ejector. The hammer must be cocked prior to each shot.  All the rifles take down quickly and easily without tools for transportation or compact storage. Models are available to chamber .243 Win., 6.5 mm Creedmoor, 7 mm-08 Rem., .300 Blackout, .35 Whelen, .350 Legend, .44 Mag., .444 Marlin, .45-70 Gov’t and .450 Bushmaster.

Heavier calibers, including the .35 Whelen, .444 Marlin, .45-70 Gov’t and .450 Bushmaster, wear a 25" barrel. With fluting in a stainless finish and matching muzzle brake, MSRP is $419. If you prefer your metalwork blued and no brake, one will set you back $349.

Also available with a stainless and fluted barrel are a .243 Win. version (20-inch barrel) and .44 Mag. (22" barrel).  MSRPs are $418.95 and $394, respectively. The .300 Blackout model with similar finish wears a 16.5" threaded barrel. It comes in at $406.

There’s plenty to choose from and each come with that legendary CVA quality. In fact, Scouts are covered by the company’s lifetime warrantee, yet another reason the it was the fourth-best-selling single-shot rifle by FFLs using the services of last year.
