Default What happened to my wolf

I was checking the firing pin on my cva wolf (the new version) and when I closed the breech it all seemed normal. I pulled the hammer back to practice trigger control (with my thumb controlling hammer fall) and the hammer got stuck and so did the trigger. I can't figure out how to fix or reverse it.

Does anyone of you know what I'm talking about and what I can do to fix it?

Please help!!

read up on the owners manual and see if it covers that.

barring it doesn't, you might need the services of a gunsmith that is familiar with that rifle.

i had a similar issue with my wolf cva. couldnt find any smith willing to work on it as im not familiar with it and could find no info on its inner workings. cva wasnt much help as they wanted more than the gun value to fix it. so i tried taking it apart. it sits in a kroil oil filled baggy a year later.

i ended up buying a lyman great plains caplock. it uses patched roundball and shoots better than the cva ever did

We got the rifle "unstuck". The only problem now is getting the trigger thingy put back in. That's the only thing keeping my wolf from "barking". If I or my dad can't figure out how to put the trigger back in, we will take it to the gunshop/smith in Garrett, Indiana (I live in kendallville) .

Think about it, how hard would it be for an experienced gunsmith to put half of a trigger assembly back into a rifle?! :screwy:

nope.

if i had the schematic i could almost certainly put it back together. the real issue is its such a cheap thing that paying cva to put it back together is more than the cost of a new one with shipping. issue was the same as getting it fixed in the first place. so there was nothing to lose by trying to take it apart.

My rifle still has a valid cva repair or replacement warranty.

my suggestion, if it's still under warranty, contact CVA and see what they would advise in doing.

Good idea. They might even bore-sight it for me.
