Neither....CVA Accura V2 or a CVA Optima switch barrel. Less expensive, much better tubes and an overall easy rifle to deal with (V2). No brainer far as I'm concerned.
Today, a better for less deal is hard to pass up.
Switch the standard breech plug to a recessed (granulated powder Western Powder plug) and shim the pin retainer (I suggest a smith for that) and you have a perfect shooting rifle for an extra 20 bucks. I load TMZ's with 100 grains of Blackhorn and it's a tack driver at 100 yards. Even optics are reasonable and the CVA's come with a scope mount on the rifle (check the mount screws and retorque). I use a Nikon Realtree 6-9, 300 bucks all day, any day.
