The back of that grip looks a little too square. May just be camera angle tho. I turned down one of those NIB with both CVA and Navy Arms logo's several years ago for 100 bucks.

Could be it needs a bit of 'profiling'. I've never owned a bad CVA gun. Probably why I sold them all...I could expect (and got) more money out of them than your run of the mill repro.

For $150 these days, Captainkirk, not a bad deal, IMO. It is correct insofar as the grip/backstrap profile, but it appears to have a lot of material to work with at the frame and backstrap in several directions.

Besides, it is an older replica and those are beginning to become difficult to find these days.

It was made by Euroarms.  They were notorious for thick squared off grips.
