yeah NRA Whittington center near raton new mexico.

The sights were off my nephews cva wolf. He can use a scope in new mexico so i always save left over parts.

Breech plug i borrowed from my Accura. I just swap them out when i want to shoot one or the other.

The oil on the trigger did help out with the over travel, it just needs a good break in i think.

Unreal! I just read through this whole thread and I think you are a god. I got my first muzzle loader back in around 1986. It was a Thompson Center Hawkins. My wife gave it to me for Christmas in the kit form. I've been hooked ever since. I have three others now. Two of them purchased since Christmas. The next to the last a Tradition, then the CVA wolf. The Traditions shoots well, I just need to get the wolf shooting. It looks like I should get some Black Horn loose powder.

Just got back after 10-12ish days down in new mexico bow hunting with my brother in law. WOW! I got home, looked at my bow hanging on the wall and said, Yep! you look good up there, i think thats where you will stay. LOL waaaay to much stress on me! And all i did was follow around with a video camera.

Got home and a package from CVA was waiting on the table. They sent me a brand new firing pin to replace the broken one on the hunterbolt. This one is a huge step up over the original. Its stainless steel, highly polished and the part that catches onto the trigger is a lot heavier duty.

Trigger is roughly 3lbs with no grit and just a touch of creep. The weird thing, normally creepy triggers you can feel. This one is like floating on air. I am thinking with time the little creep there is will be gone once the casting breaks in from shooting.

Tomorrow i am shooting 100 yards with the Accura and the new 300gr ballistic tip thor.

yeah when i was doing the bushing, i think i bent the firing pin from closing it when the fit wasnt right. They replaced it though for free. Its much heavier duty and this one is stainless steel. I tried it out today on the range and am really loving it now! The travel isnt much now that i oiled it up this morning. But its time to play with the Accura this evening.

I guess my question would be, did you tell CVA about your modifications and that you probably broke the firing pin?? If so, and they still replaced it then my hats off to CVA!

the mod didnt bend it. I noticed that it originally had a bent in it and when i went to straighten it, pop! And yes i did tell Ken that story lol.

Got the new primer holder installed today and reworked the firing pin length a good deal.
