Annually back in the early 90's, I would sit back on the patio in the summer, carving, filing, and sanding a CVA Plains Pistol. After making my Plains Pistol, I would fire my DIY homemade CVA Plains Pistol. If it fired successfully, I would then celebrate by throwing a slab on the grill and having a few doubles of Dewar's Scotch & milk.:)

These days, I've had to find other reasons to celebrate, because I can't find anymore Plains Pistols by CVA. I also find it strange that I can't find any CVA Kodiac rifles.

Does anyone know about either of these two items, the Plains Pistol or the Kodiac Rifle?

PS.

I already have six of these pistols. I just love makin' 'em!

CVA's Plains Pistol and Kodiak Inline Rifle- Recalled

Well guys,

It's like this. I just happened to have been surfing the net, when I ran into an article written by one of the most highly respected people of both hunting and journalism, Mr. Randy Wakeman.

The article was basically about how the muzzleloading industry is given a free pass on quality control and the inspection of their products. This is especially true when it comes to the actual muzzleloaders themselves. Apparently, their were many accidents caused by CVA pistols and inline rifles.

Therefore, CVA recalled or "pulled" a serial range of a few brands of their inline rifles, the Kodiak being only one of them. Many CVA rifles recalled were manufactured prior to 1997. However, there have been numerous other injury accounts that have occurred since then, including several in 2009. CVA "pulled" them off the shelves and they completely stopped their production. They also stopped the production of the Plains pistol, due to the fact that there have been barrel explosions experienced by numerous CVA muzzleloading enthusiasts, with them as well. CVA administrators have been trying to keep the matter hushed. However, this is impossible!

I have included within this post, the Randy Wakeman account concerning CVA. I hope that this article will awaken most of you so that will properly research your field weapons. Apparently, when it comes to muzzleloading, the American consumer is on his own!

Read this account about CVA:

Do NOT purchase any CVA muzzleloaders until CVA is publically cleared!!!

Most Sncerely,
Koanbred

PS.

Check this out:

I am also including the tragic accounts that include photographs of CVA victims...
