The Scout is very similar in design to the Apex centerfire rifle, but without the interchangeable barrel capability. For the hunter who wants a high quality, single shot rifle in only one caliber, the Scout is the ideal choice. Sleek, lightweight, and easy to operate, the Scout sets a new standard for affordable single shot hunting rifles. The Scout sports a 25" fluted barrel constructed of 416 grade stainless steel. The synthetic black stock is lightweight and 100% ambidextrous, with CVA's CrushZone Recoil pad - a real plus for heavier calibers, like the .35 Whelen. All Scout V2 rifles feature a genuine DuraSight Dead-On one-piece scope mount as standard equipment.
