A Little Gun with a Lot of Punch – the CVA Hunter Centerfire Rifle


The CVA (Connecticut Valley Arms) Hunter Centerfire is a great little gun for the budget-minded hunter and comes in a 20- or a 22-inch barrel. This single-shot rifle comes in a .243 caliber and a 7mm-08. New for this year is a .35 Remington, a .35 Whelen and a .44 Magnum. This gun was built for the states that have weapon limitations during their black-powder deer seasons. This very-affordable rifle allows the hunter to shoot a centerfire rifle in the states where these calibers are permitted during the blackpowder season. The manufacturers suggested retail is $314, but you will find them in many stores for less. To learn more about the CVA Hunter Centerfire Rifle, go to

    I’d love to get one if someone could just tell me more about some of the specifications. I contacted CVA customer support to ask what the barrel twist rate was on the Hunter 44 mag and he told me that it was 1:38 ! I find that very hard to believe. Since the information isn’t published in the 2013 literature on the gun and I can’t get the information from the manufacturer, no CVA for me. I don’t expect awesome customer support these days, but I at least expect basic specifications.
