If you read my action after report of the CVA Optima after the season last year just about my only complaint about the CVA Optima was the Breech Release can be pre maturely released in the field. It happened about 3 times while in the field to me. Now granted a lot of that is going to take some self correction on my part coming off of hunting so many years with a one piece stock and carrying it so much in my forearm. Getting a bit more adjusted to it and aware that the release is there I suspect me and the Ml will become one and it will be a non issue.
It seems someone at CVA has been paying attention to its customer base and those complaints as well and corrected that issue making the CVA V2 even better.
When I first handled a Accura in the store I knew that would probably be my next purchase just for that reason alone. Somehow I talked myself into a Wolf because of the weight and the pricepoint. I have not been dissapointed in the Wolfs performance.
Now that the Optima has the same mechanical release as the Accura I am not so certain I can justify the price differenece between the Accura and the Optima. Its hard to put a price tag on the subtle differences between the Accura and the Optima now. Not sure I am willing to spend another $150+ bucks just to get a premium stock and barrel. As the barrel and stock on the Optima suit my needs just fine.
