Many muzzleloader hunters have named the CVA ACCURA Mountain Rifle as the hottest new muzzleloader on the market today. The new ACCURA MR introduced at the 2012 SHOT Show has been a big hit in the muzzleloading industry. The response to the gun has been phenomenal. CVA asked its Pro Staff to tell the company what the ideal all-around gun for the extreme conditions under which they hunted would be, and the ACCURA MR was their answer.
As the cosmetics of the rifle imply and the first shouldering will confirm, the ACCURA MR is a hunter-designed gun. The action style and stock design have been borrowed from the CVA APEX, which is CVA’s muzzleloading/centerfire interchangeable model. However, the weight of the gun, at just 6.35 pounds, is over a full pound lighter than the APEX – due to the use of an aluminum rather than steel frame. This weight advantage, combined with the compact 25” barrel, make the ACCURA MR much-more maneuverable than any of the other high-dollar smoke poles – with a fit and ease of target acquisition reminiscent of a custom-made rifle.
The same features that made the ACCURA V2 famous are also found in the ACCURA MR – a Quick Release Breech Plug (QRBP), a Trigger Guard Actuated Breeching Action, a Bergara Barrel®, a Neutral Center of Gravity Trigger and premium SoftTouch stock with rubber-grip panels. But several have been added that really put the ACCURA MR in a class of its own. Most noticeable is the WeatherGuard™ barrel finish, which is applied over the exterior of the 416-grade stainless-steel Bergara barrel. This is a major difference between the ACCURA MR and competitors’ models that also feature weather-resistant barrel finishes – those being carbon-steel barrels rather than stainless steel. The gun is available in either Realtree® Max-1™ or black stock finishes – and each comes with a matching Quake Claw Sling. Plus, the DuraSight Dead-On scope mount is included – making for quick and easy scope mounting. And lastly, CVA’s new Palm Saver Ramrod is also standard.
The CVA APEX has been so successful over the years for CVA, because of the way it handles, the way it feels, and the way it looks. The APEX is a centerfire or a muzzleloader platform that can accept interchangeable barrels, but it requires all the paperwork associated with buying any-other centerfire rifle. CVA has taken that same CVA APEX design, has made a muzzleloader-version only with no centerfire barrel and has named it the ACCURA MR. Therefore, it’s easy for consumers to purchase, just like any other muzzleloader. For someone who likes the look, the feel and the operating system of the APEX rifle but only needs a muzzleloader, the ACCURA MR will be his or her new choice.
