    A FEW YEARS AGO I PURCHASED A CVA PLAINSHUNTER-CAPLOCK IT IS IN GREAT SHAPE,I AM PRETTY SURE ITS ABOUT 12 YEARS OLD, STOCK AND ALL THE BRASS IS GREAT.......I HAVE SHOT IT A FEW TIMES AND IT SHOOTS GREAT, THE RIFLEING IS ALMOST PRISTINE..... I ONLY BOUGHT IT TO HELP A FRIEND WITH MONEY TROUBLES,I HAVE A NUMBER OF TC SMOKEPOLES AND I DONT NEED IT........HOW MUCH WOULD THIS BE WORTH,I KNOW IT PROBABLY ISNT MUCH BUT IT WOULD BE A GOOD STARTER GUN.

    It depends on where it is being sold. If you live in an area with a primitive/traditional blackpowder hunting season the prices of caplocks and flintlocks are usually higher than in a place with no special season. I have seen these rifles go for as low as $75, and never more than $150.

    Yeah, those are among the more plain variants and they rarely go above $150. Right before muzzleloader season there is a spike in interest (and perhaps value) for a few weeks.
    If it were the double pinned double trigger Kentucky Mountain Rifle I'd be interested.
