The new APEX is, quite frankly, the best break-action, multi-barrel interchangeable rifle system on the market today. Just by shouldering the APEX, the serious shooter will notice a vast superiority to its competitors in both balance and fit. But the real test comes with the shooting. And it is in the shooting that two very important features make the APEX really shine. First, every APEX barrel is made by Bergara BarrelsTM , which are among the most accurate production barrels made in the world today. Second, APEX's ambidextrous butt stock is designed specifically for scope shooting, with a height of comb that positions the shooter perfectly in line with the optics. The result is a rifle that shoulders and points as naturally as your favorite shotgun – just like it's an extension of your body. As for versatility, the APEX can be quickly and easily set up with a wide range of Bergara Barrels in 13 different muzzleloading, center-fire, and rim-fire calibers. Plus, every APEX features CVA's patent pending E-Z OpenTM breeching mechanism, which, due to its trigger guard actuation, is extremely simple to operate. And its innovative trigger design provides an incredibly clean, crisp pull, and is adjustable from approximately 3 to 5 pounds. Every APEX also includes a Quake® Claw® sling and a custom DuraSight® Z-2 AlloyTM rail mount.
