The new Northwest Legal Optima™ V2 shares the name of its popular predecessor. This second version gun has been re-designed with many new, innovative features. Modeled after CVA’s top-of-the-line Accura™ V2, the Optima™ V2 features the same trigger-guard with actuated breeching lever, same internal parts, and neutral center-of-gravity trigger. This muzzleloader also features CVA’s Patent-Pending NW Quick Release Breech Plug (QRBP), which is easily removed with your fingers, and makes the rifle 100% legal to hunt with in all the Northwest States. The Optima V2’s 100% ambidextrous stock, and CrushZone recoil pad make this gun one of the most comfortable you will ever shoot.

Equipped with a 26” stainless steel fluted barrel, the Northwest Optima™ V2 is easy to maneuver in tree stands or in tight spots and is comfortable to carry in the mountains. The V2 comes standard with DuraSight® Fiber Optic sights and CVA’s solid aluminum PalmSaver Ramrod.

  1. Nice Gun review by Gene Bevan on 8/9/2018

    "Guys at Muzzle were very helpful. After buying the CVA Optima I had questions about related products, one needs to go along with the rifle. They were very helpful and answered all my questions. Since this was my first black power rifle, it took 3 trips to the range to finally get the hang of it. I put a peep site on it, with help from the guys at Muzzle Loaders, and it shoots 3 inch groups at 100 yards. I would buy anything I need for muzzle
    loader from them."

  2. Excellent Gun review by Don O. on 7/23/2018

    "Have 4 other muzzle loaders and with the exception of my Lyman round ball shooter, I have been disappointed with accuracy and ease of cleaning. Bought the CVA Optima V-2 because of other reviews and the fact that for under $30 I could convert the rifle from Northwest legal to using 209 primers. Developing a load for the NW legal set up was pretty quick, but had to change bullet weight when switching to the 209 ignition system to get the same accuracy. Cleaning is awesome!!! The QRBP is the easiest breech plug I've ever removed! Very nice rifle and was great to work with."

  3. Excellent Service review by Dennis N. on 5/3/2018

    "If you are a veteran hunter with muzzle loader or a beginner like me, this is the place to purchase everything that you need, their prices are very competitive and there always seems to be a sale going on. Service is by far excellent, received my order within a few days. Their website is very user friendly and contains a large variety muzzle loaders and all the accessories that you will ever need. So to my fellow hunting buddies this is the place to obtain all your muzzle loader needs; highly recommend that you check this website out. "

  4. Outstanding rifle review by Ken on 2/13/2018

    "Mounted a peep rib and it's incredibly accurate with a 300 gr FTX, I really like the break action mechanism it locks up tight , no tools needed to remove the breach plug makes cleaning a snap."

  5. Accurate but stainless is a joke review by Aaron N on 10/20/2017

    "Shipping was fast and well packaged. Will definitely buy from again! The rifle is accurate, no complaints there but after one day in the western Washington woods the locking lug on the barrel is covered in rust. A couple spots on the barrel began to rust as well. The CVA warranty doesn't cover rust and corrosion so I'm stuck with a maintenance nightmare. Also, CVA's customer service was less than helpful. Won't likely be buying another CVA product. "



  7. an awesome company. CVA "just a better gun" review by Danny - Star, Idaho on 10/27/2016

    "The personnel are really good people. My dealings with Caleb were all one could expect from a representative. His care and concern for me getting my first muzzleloader and accessories right made my day. I will be a customer for a long time as well as my friends. The Optima V2 Northwest Edition is a great gun and as accurate as they claim. Thanks Caleb and CVA. Job well done !"

  8. CVA Optima NW edition review by Ken on 10/27/2016

    "Fast shipping, also ordered the Williams peep rib...This is a one stop shop...Couldn`t be happier"

  9. Super Accurate review by Rick A. on 8/22/2016

    "Put on the Williams peep sight and now, my CVA Optima NW rivals my other rifles at 100 yards. I wish I'd started muzzleloader hunting sooner. I had no idea how accurate they could be."

  10. Never thought I'd say this..... review by Ben M. on 5/16/2016

    "I've always been a "traditional" kind of guy. Never thought I'd own an in-line, but I fell in love with my little CVA Optima. It's very well balanced, well made, and extremely accurate. The fiber optic sights were a bit course for my taste so I replaced them with a finer blade and a peep. Now it's absolutely perfect. Oh, and out of the box it had a crisp, clean trigger that far exceeded my expectations."

  11. Satisfied review by Michael S. on 2/16/2016

    "Inspect your firearm thoroughly. I found out mine had a serious fracture in the barrel weld. The company replaced the firearm but I was disappointed at the fact I had put $60 worth of ammunition through it trying to sight it in. After try numerous combinations I ended up with 1.5" Moa at 100 yards with open sights, I was impressed. 110 grains pyrodex with a 338 grain platinum power belt."

  12. CVA tops for easy hunting. review by Michael A on 9/19/2015

    "I bought this rifle for a light action muzzle loader for deer. Within 1 hour of the season I took my buck which was on the run.

    I also own a Lymans GPH and although I love to shoot this rifle it is heavy, long, takes #11 caps which tend to go bad in the rain and at the end of the night if you didnt get your game you have to either try and pull the bullet or fire it off.

    The CVA has an inline ignition which uses the musket cap which I find more reliable. It has a hand removable breach plug which allows you to clear a round at the end of the day and it is light and very pointable. The rear sight got lost on my first hunt so be sure and add some lock tight when you zero it. The rod is cheap and broke so youll want to replace that before your hunt.

    Overall it is a dependable and pretty accurate rifle that is easy to maintain, light to carry and takes up little space. I get 1" groups out to 50 uards which is good enough for western Washington and is very quick to cock and fire due to the hammer spur and hammer placement.

    Load of choice is 70 grains of ffg under a Lee 50 cal REAL cast bullet of 315 grains. Not that fast but easier on your shoulder and will kill a blacktail with ease.

    Happy hunting!"

  13. Tack Driver review by Michael D. on 8/31/2015

    "This thing is a tack driver, right out of the box I was getting 3 inch groups at 100 yards! Guys at were awesome, thanks for the advice Brad!"

  14. Quality Gun, Quality Service! review by Neal P. on 8/15/2015

    "With the Optima V2 Black Powder, you get all the best features for a price you can afford! The "neutral center of gravity" trigger makes it well balanced and easy to shoulder. And thanks to the quick-release breech plug, removal takes just a simple twist... no tools required! Best of all, the musket-cap ignition and open sights make if fully legal in Idaho, Washington and Oregon.

    I purchased my CVA Wolf Northwest from, an online company based out of Oregon that sells Muzzleoaders and their accessories. Since they are in Oregon, their products only take 1-2 days to reach me and they don’t charge sales tax, which makes their already competitive prices even more appealing. Overall, I was very pleased with my experience with them. The representative I spoke with was friendly and knowledgeable, they shipped my order quickly, and I felt like I paid a reasonable price for a great gun.


  15. Best Rifle Ever! review by Joe D. on 8/12/2015

    "CVA does it again! The new re-designed Optima V2 – Northwest Legal rifle is incredible. Unbelievable Gun and NW legal to boot!! Remarkably comfortable to shoot, and super easy to maneuver in tight spots and in my tree stand. Killed my biggest buck yet with this baby.

    You guys at are amazing! Your customer service during and after the sale was superb, and you answered all of my questions without a hitch. My new gun arrived earlier than promised, and was in pristine condition. So nice, I didn’t want to take it out of the box! Thanks again. I’ll be back!!

  16. Thank You! review by Richard S. on 8/3/2015

    "I just received my CVA Optima package today. This thing is absolutely amazing, the pictures do not do this thing justice, this thing is incredible. I didn't even want to take it out of the case, I had to leave it in there. I might have to buy another one to use and just keep this one as a family heirloom. Again, thank you very much this thing is incredible. I don't wanna shoot it, I need to go buy gloves in order to take it out of the case, but I'm not going to touch it, it's that cool. Thank you very much."
