Re: CVA Electronic Ignition

I understand in a lot of states it must be unloaded when you put it in your vehicle a pain to say the least if you are going from one hunting area to another. And I am still waiting to hear of one being fired in a car. God Forbid. But you can't fix stupid. No matter how you try. There will be someone out there that will do just that. Lou

Re: CVA Electronic Ignition

Here in Illinois a ML is considered unloaded for legal purposes if you have removed the cap or primer from the breech plug. Seems kinda funny to think about, but I suppose if you removed your battery it would be considered unloaded. Call me old-school, but I just can't wrap my brain around the notion of a battery-operated muzzleloader. Seems a bit weird.

Re: CVA Electronic Ignition

I doubt very much that these guns have a battery. I should think that they are fired electronically much like a LAW or other shoulder fired anti tank rocket. I do believe that the trigger mechanisms are self contained and the energy required is generated simply by the act of pulling the trigger though a pizzeo electronic circuit. That still leaves the question how do you disable it so you do not have to fire the weapon to clear it? Cheers & Tighter Groups: Eaglesnester

As a matter of fact, the Electra uses a 9-volt battery which is supposed to last approximately 500 shots.

Re: CVA Electronic Ignition

I did see CO made special regs for this gun and yes, the battery has to be removed from the gun to be considered unloaded if there is a charge in the barrel. It is also illegal during ML season.
