    I found a used cva optima v2 50cal for $150 scoped and they are $300 new without scope. my concern is somethings wrong with it cause its so cheap but it looks mint but I couldn't crack it open cause it was locked.

    what should I check on this to make sure its not a lemon and sold because it was?

    to me $150 means they gave him $100 and somethings wrong with it.

    your opinion?

    I would certainly be suspicious. What scope is on it? I'm not a CVA fan in the first place since they are cheaply made knockoffs of TC so I'd be doubly suspicious. Lots of folks love them and have good shooters. Lots of folks have had nothing but trouble with them and can't get better than a 2.5-3 inch pattern from them no matter what they load. Unless they let you check it over thoroughly, I.E. taking the stupid lock off so you can open the breech and remove the plug and inspect the bore properly, I would say "sorry, no sucker for you today" and wave bye bye.

    I have an older version and it's okay. Just looking to upgrade it to regular stock and quick breech. it's some knock off scope like Simmons or something.

    It would depend on where you are buying it from. I was at Cabela's last year with nothing really on my mind to buy. I found a CVA Accura V2LR Hunter in the bargin cave for $250 which was a bit less than half of a new one. I bought it knowing that if a squeaked loud enough I could most likely return it for a refund. It turned out to be a great shooter and I am completely satisfied with it.

    My optima is a tack driver and my dads Kodiak more so. As long as it's not rusty it'll be fine. Remove breach plug and check bore. Even a little pitting is fine.

    For what it's worth I wouldn't pay more than 150 for a used one anyway.

    In my experience used inline muzzleloaders sell for dirt cheap. Not much demand for used ones.
