Each of those similar break actions are comparable with the main differences being the comfort of the stock and the length of the barrel.
The CVA Wolf may not have the best breech plug design for shooting the new Blackhorn 209 powder if that makes any difference to you, but otherwise it's said to shoot very accurately and everyone seems to like it.
The TC Impact has a slightly more compact stock and it's known to be an extremely accurate and reliable gun that comes with the "no nonsense" TC lifetime warranty.
The Traditions Pursuit models are also solid and reliable guns that have a longer stock and barrel that's some find to be more comfortable, and also somewhat heavier depending on the exact configuration.
If a person hunts deer in cold weather, then consider how the stock length will affect shouldering it with a heavy jacket on, and how heavy the gun will be after the scope of choice is mounted on it.

Before you buy,try the CVA optima.I just bought one and it has the best trigger that I have ever had the pleasure to pull,stainless steel Bergera barrel,and a outstanding set of factory fiber optic sights.I am for the most part a traditional muzzleloading fan,but could not pass up the feeling of the Optima when I shouldered it.Pellets are fine,but when I tried loose powder in it is where it really began to shine as far as power and accuracy.

This may be covered other places, but since it was eluded to previously, the Traditions manual does not list the Blackhorn 209 powder as an acceptable accelerant. Has the Blackhorn been used in the Traditions 209 muzzleloaders and has anyone seen any problems?

I called cabelas today and talk to them I ask about the optima and the wolf and I thinks they said that the wolf is only 10 dollars cheaper and I looked at the tradition buckstalker too are any of them capable of a magum charge thanks

magnum charges are over rated, but yes all of them shoot 3 pellet loads.
I'd highly suggest the Optima. www.rrarms.com has great prices on them.
I own 2 of the new models.

These Traditions rifles fired the Blackhorn 209 powder just fine.
