Most people don't shoot well enough to be able to tell a difference in accuracy between a bolt and a break action.

I have a single shot CVA optima Elite 45-70 I picked up new dirt cheap a couple weeks ago. It's the only single shot firearm I've ever owned. I haven't shot it much but so far I'm averaging 3"-4" groups at 100 yards with the stock sights. I'm slightly dissapointed, but the rifle was really cheap and I'm sure after I try different bullet weights and powder and I get used to the rifle the groups will tighten up a little. My 1895 on the otherhand shoots 2"-3" at 100 yards consistantly with a Williams peep sight.

Don't underestimate what a good peep sight will do for a rifle. If I had tried them 20 years ago, I probably only have one or 2 scoped rifles now rather than
a dozen... I'm also switching at lest one of my scoped rifles to peeps...

I'm not familiar with CVA rifles but they do have a good reputation. Try a peep on it before you give up on it's accuracy.
