I read a post on here a few days ago that someone had trouble with the cva wolf hammer not locking back. Ive got 3 family members having the same trouble now with their m/l. I know 2 of them are meticulous about cleaning their guns. So I dont think that is the problem. CVA customer service is not offering any help. Any one heard of a fix or cause of this problem. I would rather not hear "you get what you pay for" because all three guns worked flawless for the first 2-3 seasons.

i find it hard to believe that CS isn't helping out.

Can you go into a little more detail about what primers you are using and if this is the new wolf or the older model.

As hard as it is to believe ....I contacted cva customer service the first time it happend, I was told it was a cleaning issue, that oil and debris were getting into the trigger mech area and not letting the barrel lock thus not letting the hammer lock back. I know 2 of them are using winchester primers. I know all 3 of the guns were bought 3 years ago

thats what i was thinking.

I'd just break the action open and then see if the hammer cocks. Ive heard of this before but never found out what the fix was.

Don't worry, It really isn't that hard to believe that their customer service is worthless.

Cva should be helping him with his problem. They tell him it is a cleaning issue and he says that two of the owners of these guns are meticulous about cleaning them. And now you are the one helping which is nice but that doesn't make Cva's customer service worth a dime. It just makes what your doing good for you and bad for them. Unless of course you work for Cva and I did not assume that in which case is my error.

ok took breach plug out opened and closed it several times it cocked everytime but the last. and it wanted to catch but didnt. Think I found the problem. I took my FIL's completely apart the trigger, hammer and barrel mech were covered in surface rust. Sprayed the parts down with bullfrog and cleaned them with 6000 grit sand paper. Got them drying under a blow dryer. Hope this is it!!

WCB I have to say CVA cs is top notch. I had a cva mountain stalker, the first time I fired it the drum blew off the gun. After contacting them they wanted the gun to look at it. I was sent a brand new gun and offered complete compensation of medical bills. I think that was above and beyond what cs should have done, before ever deciding who was at fault

rust... got to hate that stuff!

Seems like the primer blow back finally got the better of it and rusted it up along with the weather.

You ever hear of dyna tek gun coat? Just dip all the parts " cleaned of course!" into it, let it dry, dip again, let dry over night, reassemble. That stuff is amazing and is actually a ceramic style of coating. Wont ever rust up again.

Barricade is also a good product to keep rust away.

Above and beyond what customer service should do? What should a company do it a situation like that? They were covering their selves which is expected from any company and if they did any less than what they did for you would of been horrible. Cva does what they are supposed to sometimes as far as customer service goes but there is a overwhelming amount of reports of bad customers service as well. Now I know all companies will have dings on their customer service sometimes but I have not seen as much with other companies as I have with Cva but if you like them that is great.

Got an email back from a higher up worker at CVA. Try this out guys. Guns sent back, will be cleaned and returned to you at free of cost.
---------------------

Yes, I do think I can help. Some of the early production of the new redesigned Optima and Wolf design, likely with -10 or -11 serial number suffix, have developed some slight bluing salt bleed out on the hammer and trigger.

If this develops between the trigger and frame it can cause the trigger to stick. Tell your guys when they experience this to push the trigger forward when test cocking the gun (UNLOADED PLEASE).

If the hammer cocks and stays this is more than likely the cause. They can also inspect for a white, powdery residue on the hammer or trigger.

Of course, the gun canít be used in this condition. Usually working some Gun Scrubber or RemClean up into this area followed by a good lube and moving the parts around will free things up.

We recommend, however, that they send the gun in for a good, deep (and free) cleaning even if this does free things up for the hunt. It is important that the owner NOT take the frame apart, we have special jigs here that are needed for reassembly.

The issue was noticed early on and was fixed by changing from a regular bluing bath process to another blackening process.



Hope this helps.
