Bergara’s emergence as major player in the industry began modestly in 1999 when BPI was established and purchased famed muzzleloader manufacturer CVA. The company thrived and learned that the barrel was the most important ingredient in any quality gun.
Bergara and CVA, both owned by BPI Outdoors, hosted several "Long Shot Tour" events to show off new bolt-action and muzzleloading rifles for 2021.
Very likely the new hot rod of muzzleloaders, CVA’s Paramount Pro in .40 cal., pushes beyond what is known of blackpowder rifle performance.
CVA’s Cascade marks a big first for a firm that got its start selling DIY blackpowder rifle and pistol kits.
CVA is stepping into the bolt-action market for the first time with its new Cascade series of center-fire rifles.
