    When I was at Academy today I found a CVA Elite Stalker .243 that I've decided I want. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about it. I was searching for a picture of it online but was unable to find one.

    Connecticut Valley Arms, mostly muzzle loaders and kits but I guess they now have center fire and rim fire exchangeable barrels, I've never seen the model you looked at, I would think ok for hunting doubt the accuracy for serious target shooting due to the two piece stock, but thats only an opinion.

    I've seen a few of these single shot rifles that will go under an inch. I never seen one that shot over an inch and a half. So I'm all for it. If she gets this rifle I get to go to the range more.:happy0001:

    A two piece stock on a break open rifle has nothing to do with accuracy. I think OLDGUY is thinking about a falling block or rolling block action. On those types, the forearm is hung from the barrel and can put pressure between the barrel and the action and can cause it not to group a well. I have never seen the CVA, but it sounds like a mighty fine gun.
    Go for it and good shooting.:patriot:

    :banger:I think this CVA will be similar to a T/C Encore..........I agree......it should go under an inch if Mrs. Big does her part.

    Oh man, that could be bad then lol! The only thing that I'm dreading is having to clean the rifle myself and all that good stuff. I'm really excited about buying it on Friday though. Hopefully before then someone on here would have heard of it and can give me some insight... and what is a T/C Encore??

    Yep, I'm talking of the break open type action, I assumed in looking at the CVA website it was a break open, however again I still believe any forearm or two piece stock is more difficult to obtain accuracy without a lot of work,they are sensitive to forearm torque pressure, what and how the forearm is rested when fired,the break open types will change impact point when open and closed.

    I'm just explaining my experiences with various guns of this type they simply don't compare to a bolt in accuracy on average out of the box but they are fine hunting guns easily to interchange barrels, etc. My feeling is if price is correct and you like the looks buy and try.

    Of the 50-or-so break action guns I've shot from Rossi's to T/C's, etc. I have only shot one that would remotely go near 1" groups at 100 yards.

    I absolutely will NEVER own, or suggest, a break-action gun to anyone.

    Get a bolt-action, even the cheapest Remington 710 and Savage 11 will out shoot any break-action gun.
