CVA Cascade SR-80: The Scout Rifle Treatment By:

The CVA Cascade SR-80 is here, offering shooters a scout rifle take on the company’s bolt-action platform. Although CVA is best known for its black powder offerings, it also manufactures centerfire arms. In 2019, it debuted the Cascade bolt-action rifle, and it’s been updating the lineup ever since. In 2021, we got the Cascade in 350 Legend, to take advantage of growing opportunities for hunters with straight-wall rifle cartridges. In 2022, we got the Cascade XT, built for precision shooting and hunters looking for long-range performance, with a fluted barrel, muzzle brake and enlarged bolt knob. In 2024 we are getting the SR-80, for shooters who want an all-round bolt-action built on the scout rifle pattern.

Here’s how CVA’s website describes the new rifle:

Introducing the CASCADE SR-80, a versatile, bolt-action Scout Rifle designed for short-range, fast target acquisition hunting. Whether at the range or in the field, this rifle combines comfort and speed. Crafted as CVA’s version of the Scout Rifle, the SR-80 features a forward-mounted Picatinny rail for long eye relief scopes and red dots. Standard components also include Williams Gun Sights rear peep and an adjustable front sight post with built-in elevation adjustments.

The SR-80’s versatile sight options assure adaptability to diverse shooting preferences. The 70-degree bolt throw enables swift action manipulation while shouldered. With a high-capacity magazine, radial muzzle brake, and adjustable length of pull with removable spacer, the SR-80 offers a tailored and affordable solution for those seeking a top-tier Scout/.

Presumably, the high-capacity magazines referenced here are AICS-pattern mags, although other Cascade rifles use a proprietary magazine design. For the sake of reference, many users are able to fit third-party AICS-pattern mags into their Ruger scout rifles, and Savage’s recent scout rifle production is advertised as being AICS-pattern compatible (not true of all Savage scout rifles, though).

The asking price for the new CVA Cascade SR-80 is $925, although they are not yet listed as available on CVA’s website (see more here). See the specs for the new rifles below:
