The following Recall letter was received at Handgun Repair Shop on September 17, 2002.

Blackpowder Products, Inc.

The Muzzleloading Specialists


August 2, 2002

To Our Customers:

I want to personally inform you, a valued "member" of the Blackpowder Products, Inc. team, that we are continuing the RECALL of CVA In-Line Muzzleloading Rifles manufactured in 1995 and 1996. The Recall began in 1997 by Connecticut Valley Arms, Inc. This recall was due to the occurrence of very severe accidents when using the rifles. An extremely dangerous condition and a potential for serious injury exists when firing the rifle even if the rifle may have been safely used previously. No other firearm models are affected by this Recall.

As you know, product safety always comes first at Blackpowder Products. The following are the procedures we have in place this year to continue to spread the word on the recall:

The effort, which Connecticut Valley Arms, Inc. began in 1997, has resulted in the return or replacement of over 90% of the rifles. It is our intention to have all the recalled rifles returned.

In May 1999, Blackpowder Products, Inc. purchased the CVA name and other assets. Blackpowder Products, Inc. assumed no liability for any product manufactured or sold prior to January 1, 1998. However, Blackpowder Products, Inc. is continuing the Connecticut Valley Arms, Inc. recall and will cover replacement of the rifle and all related shipping charges.

Thank you for your time and support.
