Wondering if anyone can help with a problem I have with my new CVA Optima V2. Planning to use it in CO which means open sights only. My problem is the stock does not have enough drop at heel for my eye to be in line with the open sights, even when the length of pull is extended with an added recoil pad.
Has anyone else had this problem and come up with a work around?

No help, just sympathy. My son had the same trouble with a T/C Strike, and only discovered it just prior to a trip to CO. I scrabbled around and found an Impact locally, just in time, and he was able to hunt. There was literally nothing available online at the time.

I suggest you call CVA and see if one of the other models’ stocks with a lower comb will fit. That’s the cheap option, if available.

The spendier one might be this:

Don’t know the dimensions, but Boyds does, and you can always cut it down….

Thanks for the reply and sympathy. I’m in the process of talking to CVA but I’m not getting any good vibes. I’m pretty sure my only options are, 1. Purchase a Boyd’s wood replacement and trim it to fit, or 2. Do some research and find a gun that fits and trade this one to someone who hunts in a state that allows scopes on MLs.
This was my first venture into ML and I didn’t do my homework. Lesson learned.

CirB,
No scopes in Oregon either and i have 2 of the CVA Optimas set up with the CVA Eabco Peeprib rear sights. They are are bit taller and help with the cheekweld problem on a stock designed for scope use.
Part # 127-813 at Muzzleloaders.com
Combine this rear sight with the Williams Western precision fiber optic globe front sight and i think you’ll be in business. Still not idea, but works for me alright.

Sorry about not providing the link for you, i couldn’t get it to load. Muzzleloaders.com is fantastic with great customer service- give them a call.
Best of luck to you on your hunt!

After messing with a couple of Knights and a TC Strike, I consider the Optima 2 to be a bargain, with a good trigger and easy to use. If it were me, I’d pony up for the Boyds stock and go hunt. That expense is minimal compared to trading off and starting over.

Thanks for this info on the Eabco Peeprib. I will check it out. This gives a bit of hope for a possible fix.

Although magnifying scopes are not permitted in CO, 1X are if you can find one.. Then put it on taller bases. Another option is Williams receiver sight and get a taller front sight to match it.

You don't say which stock you have for it. They made a conventional straight-combed stock (which I presume you have) and a thumbhole stock. My thumbhole has a check riser and plenty of drop in the comb. It works great for me with the Western Precision sights. And I will be using it in Colorado come this September for chasing mule deer. You can score a thumbhole of eBay.

I don't think so:

K. Only open or iron sights allowed in muzzleloading seasons. Fiber optics and fluorescent paint incorporated into or on open or iron sights are legal. Scopes or any sighting device using artificial light, batteries and electronic gear are prohibited during muzzleloading seasons.

Utah will let you hunt with a 1x scope.
