I'm curious if anyone out there owns an Optima Elite, or knows someone that has one. I've been thinking about buying a TC Encore, but haven't yet due to the $$$'s. CVA's Optima Elite is basically a knockoff of the TC but retails for about 360.00 in SS. Most of the barrels are also under $200.00. I'd be interested to hear how the gun performs, if it is a real contender to the TC Encore line, or if I should just keep saving my pennies!!
