Muzzleloaders in general are a throwback to a different era and, for the most part, have been utilized almost exclusively by hunters in recent years. But a muzzleloading pistol? Now there's something that'll pique the interest of your buddies during your next trip to the range. Yes, CVA's new OPTIMA V2 pistol offers plenty of applications in the field, but it's also just plain old fun to shoot.

The pistol comes with a trigger-actuated break-action, making it easy to open. It also comes outfitted with a quick-release breech plug, making cleaning a breeze. There's a palm saver on the ramrod, and it's equipped with an ambidextrous cocking jag.

Pistol Features:

• 14" Stainless Steel Barrel
• Quick Release Breech Plug
• DuraSight Z2 Scope Rail
• 100 Grain Capable
• 3.7 lbs. Total Weight
• Lifetime Warranty
