CVA adds a new long gun to its lineup of Optima mid-level muzzleloaders, rolling out the new CVA Optima V2 LR.

The Optima V2 LR is a long range rifle CVA says is packed with features to help shooters take on distant shots. Sporting a 28-inch Nitride treated stainless steel barrel that is two-inches longer than the Optima’s other configurations, the V2 LR also comes equipped with a thumbhole stock for added stability. The thumbhole stock is ambidextrous and includes a CrushZone recoil pad for a more comfortable shooting experience.

The Optima line features a smilier build to the Accura V2 LR, offering the same trigger-guard with actuated breeching level, internal parts and neutral center-of-gravity trigger. The V2 also delivers CVA’s Quick Release Breech Plug which requires no tools to remove.

The V2 LR tops off its design with a DuraSight Dead-On one-piece scope mount, CVA aluminum PalmSaver Ramrod and reversible hammer spur.

“The Optima V2 LR is essentially a more affordable version of our Accura V2 LR, which after its introduction two years ago became our number one selling Accura model. We expect the Optima V2 LR to have similar appeal, as today’s shooters are looking for more long-range capability from their muzzleloaders,” Dudley McGarity, CVA’s brand manager, said in a press release.

The 43-inch Optima V2 LR with Realtree Xtra Green Camo retails for $371.
