I have a chance to buy one in .35 Whelen. So I am looking for anyone that has experience with this rifle, any caliber.

David,

I see this is an old post with so for what its worth I have both a CVA V2 Scout and a Hunter in 35 Whelen. I can't speak highly enough of both rifles in this caliber with cast bullets. Using a Saeco #352 mold and 20.4 gr. of 2400 these rifles consistently produce groups between 1.25 +/- inches at 100 yds. Haven't a clue what the velocity is but they are big bore fun minus the pain.

As far as the rifles themselves, they are high quality items at a bargain price. Both have Bergarra barrels. The trigger pull on both is crisp and light. The only possible negative is synthetic stocks only. That probably contributes to the "bargain price. The V2 is probably the best value as it has the quick take down feature which simplifies cleaning. It also has a removable  muzzle brake which for my purposes is useless weight and length.

Since this post I have acquired a .35 Whelen, .44 mag, .444 Marlin, & .45-70. They are a tremendous bargain. Even though they don't recommend that you can switch barrels, I have found that it is easily done. I wish they would sell the barrels separately.  

Traditions makes a similar rifle, the Outfitter G3. Their barrels are made by Lothar Walther and are quite accurate also. I have one in .357 magnum. However the trigger on them is not as good. But you can find some of the .357s and .44 mags for about $220. A real bargain also. 

In my opinion they are a much better option than the Henry's.

I know a guy I use to work with that bought a Used Cva 44 mag At a local gun store. It was there for awhile. Seems nobody around here likes single shots except me and him. This gun will shoot. I was not excepting this riffle to put 5 or 6 shots all touching at 100 yards. I shot it a few times and I could also shoot it very well. Not as good as he could but I only did shoot it a couple of times. The fit and finish looked great and was a fun riffle. One thing I noticed that ,I didint thank it would hardly kick. Well it wasent a 300 win mag but it did have a decent amount of recoil. More than I was expecting. Great stay at the range half a day type of gun.
