I picked up a CVA Optima in stainless steel. I bought the model that has open sights yet takes 209 primers. I also bought a northwest conversion kit which converts the muzzle loader to take musket caps and an exposed breech plug, I bought this just in case I ever wanted to try out a hunting season with it. I am also thinking about getting getting this sight for it, http://www.eabco.com/CVAPeep01.htm so I could have the peep sight for hunting season yet I could possibly scope it just for general target shooting at the range, any idea if that sight would be allowable with WA hunting laws? I dont know if I will ever take it hunting, I just wanted to have the components if that was ever to happen. That being said, would I be better off to leave the the muzzle loader with the 209 primers so use it that way until the time comes to ever take it hunting, which again my be never. Or should I just convert it to the musket caps and leave it that way for good?
