Yup, we have one. It feels very cheap in your hand, but it shoots great and it has the tool-less breech removal, which I'm a huge fan of. Its not the nicest machine you'll ever own, but for that price, its well worth it.

I’d eat bologna for a few months and save up enough for a Woodman Arms if I were you.

Then again, your freezer is probably ready to shear a hinge pin holding all that venison in so you shouldn’t be spending any money on meat...........there I justified the purchase for you right there.

Yes, actually been looking at the Woodman Arms and the CVA Accura.

If price point is the goal, then you can't go wrong. It's a great rifle, but does feel kind of cheap. Regardless though, it will be more than effective at doing the job. I had picked one up from Wally World a couple years back, they were on clearance. I had paid like $79 for the naked one without a scope. Black synthetic with "stainless".

You do need a different breech plug if you want to shoot BH209 though.

For what its worth, I purchased one from Walmart the first year they came out. I paid $119. It was a black synthetic stock with Nitride barrel. I have killed 7 or 8 deer with that rifle. My daughter now uses it. My Dad purchased a Wolf last summer. We put a scope on it and it shoots great. For the cost, I don't think you can go wrong for a deer killing smokepole.

I bought a Wolf a number of years ago. Like most have said it's a good accurate rifle.
The only thing I don't like about it is, the stock is plastic and I don't think it is solid. In other words probably some form of honeycomb internally. It makes a lot of unnatural noise when whips and such hit up against it. Kind of amplifies the sounds.
Definitely a good rifle for the money

The CVA Wolf isn’t fancy, but it will go bang and is accurate. It does have the breech release lever located in a funky spot which can cause it to open accidentally on occasion if you snag it. I have an Optima V2, and it’s good. On a related note, I was having an issue with the firing pin not staying retracted, and I called CVA about it. They immediately sent me a new spring and a firing pin removal tool at no cost, so thumbs up for that. I have noticed that CVA muzzleloader are not as dummy proof as my old Thompson Omega, you really do need to to remove and clean the firing pin assembly on a regular basis. I run Blackhorn 209 with Winchester magnum shotshell primers and cleaning is simple. This video shows how to remove the firing pin.

I handled one of these today, along with a Woodman. They felt very similar in length, weight, and LOP. The Woodman was $800 and the Wolf was $260.

I know this thread is over a year old but my next ML is going to be either the Optima or Accura.

I went with the Traditions G4 ultralight. I bought a 2nd one as a backup with the nitride finish inside and outside the barrel. The first one was $208.00 and the latest one was under $300 with rings and bases and it was on "special". If you are on their email list they have great deals on factory blems.....the last one was but I still cant find the blemish. A PD brother who is like a son to me is going to be promoted to Captain and I am eying the Traditions Vortex striker fired back country as its brand new and normally $485 on sale for $299.00
