    i got an e the other day, 35% with an exchange from an older gun towards a new one. sometimes i worry about my 2000, 50 cal. part because of the controversy, about splos, cva, in the breach area, and part about seeing spider cracks, inside the barrel [my gun] just around the threads where where the plug goes with the the nipple that carries the 209, or 11 cap.. im not sure what a new gun cost, but, the old one shot straight. i could hit a beer can, three out of three, at 40 yards. that aint much of a shot. i still worry about those spiderweb cracks i see. i have been told they are tool marks, i just cant see how a tool can make that kind of pattern. if they were perpendicular, that would be one thing, if you ever seen a crack in the basement, or on your windshield, there is no straight line.. //Ed

    It sounds to me like they are doing a "recall" without actually calling it a recall. I'd take the offer and trust my gun 100% instead of wondering if it is going to blow up.

    i shoulda listened to ya, at the time, i posted this.. but i forgot about it. any chance ya know how much a magneflux check cost? i doubt i spelled it right. i just cant trust the barrel, an dont know if its worth the check, v/s a new barrel, or at this late date, just buying a new gun.. the competition, might want my old barrel, should the test prove, it has fractures in it.. else i missed out.. it dont bother me, if the competition wants it, should it be bad, since i may have been sold a faulty barrel.. should the test ring true, least i might feel comfortable, using the muzzle-loader.. even if the test says its safe, i still dont want to shoot the gun, an would feel uncomfortable selling to someone who would, though i told them of the risk... at the moment, that 50 cal, is just slag metal to me..

    A Magnaflux test will only find cracks already there. It won't tell you is a barrel is too brittle, not heat treated right, or has metal fatigue. Have you called CVA to see if the offer is still good? Maybe they can sell you just a new barrel cheaper than a whole rifle. It's worth a try. Call them and raise a little stink and play ignorant like you just heard about this problem.......sometimes you have to fudge a little with big companies...

    CVA had a recall several years ago, can't remember what model but they sent me a barrel free and only asked that I not use the old barrel. Try calling them, they might gladly give you a new barrel rather than taking a chance on something bad happening. Just don't tell them you're not going to shoot it anymore. If anything tell them you shoot a whole lot and don't want it to blow up in your face.

    I traded in a CVA Optima Pro Magnum and bought a Accura V2. I even forget to send in the old breech plug and ramrod but I still got the full discount. I am thrilled with the new gun.
