Fleet Farm in Brooklyn Park MN has a CVA. Not sure if they would ship to a ffl or lgs.

The factory Encore ML pistol barrels haven't been made in a long time.

I've found two websites where you could buy an Optima. One's a package deal, while another is just the gun:
https://www.midwayusa.com/product/981712...synthetic-stock
https://www.muzzle-loaders.com/camo-cva-optima-v2-pistol-pp222sm.html

It's kind of concerning these are the only ones I could find on some of the more major sites. I hope they haven't been discontinued.

Bullberry Barrel Works still offers pistol length muzzleloader barrels for the Encore and Contender. Kind of pricey, but it's your only option if you want a muzzleloader Encore pistol right now.

I have the CVA Optima V2 pistol. It is one hell of a lot of fun! It has also been very accurate with several different load combinations. Haven't had a chance to use it hunting yet. I can tell you 100 grains of loose pyrodex FFg in it is a fun handful!

Hurry up and buy one if you're going to. CVA has discontinued the Optima pistol.
