CVAs line of Northwest Guns offer all of the features that shooters love in our Accura V2, Optima V2 and Wolf break-action models, while still meeting the open-breech/ignition requirements of Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Our patent-pending NW Ignition System features a modified version of our Quick Release Breech Plug (QRBP) the only breech plug that is completely finger removable even after multiple firings. This NW QRBP has four milled windows around the gripping surface, which renders the ignition open to the elements as required the muzzleloading regulations of these states. It also features an integral nipple designed for use with traditional Musket Cap primers, and the face of the plug is funnel shaped for more reliable ignition with loose propellants. Plus, a firing pin sized specifically for musket caps and a stronger firing pin spring provide fast and reliable ignition of the propellant charge.
Note: CVAs Northwest line of muzzleloading rifles were developed and tested using RWS musket caps. For this reason, we strongly recommend using RWS musket caps with these guns.
