CVA Elite Stalker, center fire single shot rifle, $159 at Academy Sports

They've been selling these for $179, but on sale right now for $159. Break action single shot. This is for the blued version. Available calibers include 243, 7mm-08, 270 Win, 308 Win, 30-06. No sights, and doesn't include scope mount, which can be found for between $15 and $25 from a couple of different makers and several online sellers.

The barrels on these rifles are made by Bergara of Spain. Bergara hired Ed Shilen (one of the world's premier experts on gun barrel manufacturing) to consult on the production of these barrels, and they are excellent. I have a CVA Optima Elite (the swap barrel version of the Elite Stalker) with a .223 Bergara barrel and its a lights-out shooter. The Bergara barrels normally sell for over $200 just for the barrel itself.

CVA introduced a successor to the Optima Elite, and I believe the Elite Stalker is a budget model introduced to sell letover inventory of the Optima Elite components, including the barrels. If you want a simple, excellent target shooting or game hunting single shot, this is an unbeatable deal.
