CVA has announced the Cascade XT (X-Treme), a bolt-action rifle that sports weight-reducing barrel fluting and a radial muzzle break as standard equipment. This makes the XT very comfortable to shoot both on the range and in the field, even in heavier calibers, despite a starting weight of a mere 7.15 pounds.
Jason Sebo, CVA Division vice president of sales states, “CVA has applied it’s nearly 50 years of experience into making what CVA feels to be the best bolt-action on the market under $800.”
The #5 taper barrel is made from 4140 carbon steel and finished in Cerakote Graphite Black. Its stock is decorated in the Realtree Hillside pattern, creating a concealment combination the works in various types of terrain. CVA makes adding a scope to this new Cascade XT simple, as it comes with a two-piece mount.
The XT’s tactical-style bolt knob benefits the shooter by giving better leverage, which ensures smooth and rapid bolt manipulation. Also, the XT features a threaded muzzle, making it ready for a brake or suppressor whenever you are. The two-position safety is conveniently located for natural and instantaneous operation, while loading is a breeze with its four-round (short action) and flush-fit detachable magazine.
Calibers being released with a 22-inch barrel include 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Winchester, 450 Bushmaster and 350 Legend. In addition, the 6.5 PRC, 7mm Rem. Mag. and .300 Win. Mag. are available, featuring a 24-inch barrel. Look for other additional caliber offerings in the near future.
