Question on CVA Rem 44

My local gunshop has a used but in good condition CVA Rem 44 with steel frame for $140. I know CVA no longer makes this particular model, so will I be able to substitute Pietta parts in the event it breaks down? Should i just stay away from it and buy a Pietta or Uberti? Thanks for your help.

Hong

CVA never made anything, they were/are an importer. I know their single shots were imported from Spain and so were some of their revolvers. I do know if it also has Traditions logo on it it's a good chance it's a Pietta. I've seen a few of those. If it's an ASM Pietta parts can be made to work but they're not a drop in fit.

And....


If he is asking 140.00, he'll take less. I doubt he has more than fifty dollars in it.

hawg, doc, +1, i'm with doc, he'll take less, put a $100 or so on the counter. like doc said he's probably not got much in it. plus most people won't want a bp, no real demand in most places. so he got it in a trade or pawn, either way, he'll take alot less.
cva, traditions are importers, made by pietta. don't know if asm sold any to cva.

Starbuck, there was a discussion about one of these CVA/ASM's a couple of days ago. Read the first and 12th posts. http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=449054

Doc,

I offered $100, and settled for $110, and walked out with a very decent Navy Arms Rem 44 with a steel frame! I unlocked the loading lever and found out it's a Uberti made gun. I'm in the process of repolishing the brass trigger guard, refinishing the grip, and I'll post pics of my "diamond in the rough" in the morning. The bore is as shiny as a new coin. Except for some exposed metal in high friction areas, the gun is real good condition. Membership to this forum is already paying dividends for me. Thanks.

Honorable Hon

Nice deal.

I have gotten what I consider my two best deals from pawn shops. Problem is, you can't find any around here that has any BP revolvers.

For $110, and a couple of hours of work on the trigger guard, grip, and retouching exposed metal parts, it's not a bad deal.

Nice lookin pistol for it's age. It was a good deal too.

The polishing on the trigger guard is to be expected.

After some of the garbage I have seen come from CVA, I am suprised to hear of an Uberti with their stamp on it!
Uberti's are nice guns, usually very well finished.
I have a CVA '51 Police kit from ASM that won't even allow the cylinder to turn with caps on it. Pure junk! It is a nice $89 Wall Hanger though...
Sounds like you really got a GOOD deal with that one!
Enjoy it!

The title of the thread was misleading about it being a CVA. In post #10, hongrn stated that this revolver is marked Navy Arms/Uberti and not CVA.

Just because Uberti starts with a vowel does not mean you use 'an' before it. It is a name and thus does not follow that rule. Being a former instructor, it irks me to see that usage in post after post. I'm not picking on you ZVP, because you are not the first or the last person to do that. It's just that I see it so often. Lesson ended.

If we speak English, we should write it correctly. If you want to use 'pig' Latin......well it shows your level of education. BTW, any time someone wants to deride someone else, they use the 'Nazi' card. Ja wohl, mein F├╝hrer!

I don't speak English. I'm not in England. I speak Southern American with a dash of backwoods redneck.

Truth is, when I saw the pistol, the tag was marked CVA by the gunshop, so I assumed it was a CVA. It wasn't until I got home and disassembled the gun that I saw Navy Arms on the barrel.

Hawg,

Would holding a BP Colt in each hand help with that particular dialect?

Hawg,

There isn't any such language. You speak English, but just don't know any better!

Please show me where that rule exists.

The exception for using the word "an" before nouns that begin with a "U" sound as described below may not apply to the name Uberti at all since Uberti is pronounced with an "oo" sound as in the sound that a pigeon makes when it coos.
If someone pronounces Uberti like ooberti instead of youberti then an certainly can be properly used.
I don't see any rule about not using an with all proper nouns that begin with a vowel, the rule has to do with the "U" sound. There have been threads about how to pronounce Ooberti and not everyone agrees.

Quote:
Use a before nouns beginning with u and eu when they sound like "you" (a European, a university, a unit).

Since the above post is from you, It doesn't deserve to be dignified with a response, since you believe you know everything.

For the rest, a proper name does not fall under the rules for English grammar. It can be pronounced however the owner of the name desires, even if it is not spelled grammatically.
