    Saw a CVA Bobcat with synthetic stock for sale at local shop, no scope mounted just the iron sights.

    I am trying to save cash to buy a different gun but the Bobcat is a gun I have some experience with and I don't yet have a muzzle-loader. I do not want a in-line muzzle loader because I like the looks of the older percussion style.

    Would you jump at $100 Bobcat? I know I would jump if I saw 100 lb Bobcat but that's another story.

    I'd much rather have a Thompson Hawken, Grey Hawk, or New Englander. They can often be found just north of 100 bucks.

    I want to replace my TC Renegade in .54. It was stolen in one of the number of break ins I've had over the years.

    The Bobcat is a sweet little gun, nimble, light, and a natural pointer. While T/C's products are higher quality, they are heavy and clunky in comparison.

    $100 for the bobcat is a decent deal, see if you can haggle him down to $75.

    They are a meat N potato's muzzle loader, not made to look pretty but made light weight and for work in the woods. It will do the job as good as any other gun out there.

    I'm gonna keep saving my pennies for next purchase. I'll get more use out of a 22 pistol than a smoke-pole right now.

    Nothing against muzzle-loaders cause I do like em, just looking at my current situation and my likely Enjoyment Per Dollar ratio.

    I also own a CVA Buckhorn. Was my first muzzleloader. Get your rifle and really enjoy. Your price is right.
    My Buckhorn was my first, turned out it was not my last CVA muzzleloader.

    It is a good buy for the money. I paid 69.95 for mine but that was years ago (and I believe I caught an end of hunting season stock elimination sale). Some folks like the Bobcat well enough to buy fancy wood replacement stocks (if they don't like the synthetic stock).

    I won't participate in a discussion about which manufacturer is BEST. The question is focused upon CVA.

    Last September I found a slightly used but not abused CVA Optima with scope, sling, and case for $160. and its a dandy shooter! It was 2 years old at the time. I bought it from a hunter who simply had to have the latest & greatest ML rifle. He bought the new CVA Accura model.

    I'm sure you'll be OK with any CVA in-line ML rifle.
