I sent an email yesterday to CVA via the contact us tab on BPIoutdoors.com.
I told them I needed a "firing pin bushing shim kit" because my bushing was slightly recessed and they replied today saying they would ship a set right out. No charge.
Here is their reply and contact number.

I have put that shim kit on order for you and it should ship within the next two business days.

$5 shipping + the product cost and taxes, seems right.

Nothing on you FG, but he should have not been charged a penny for the shim kit, specially if his firing pin bushing was recess pass the face of the frame. This has been a common issue here lately with most of the ACCURAS and Optimas that I have ordered and received, and the reason they went to a shim kit to correct the defect. It has gotten to the point that every one I sell I have to look at and check the bushing and if recess pass the face of the frame I correct it on the spot before I sell it, if I don't do it it will miss fire. I already been thru that one. Sorry you had to pay for it BIG ED.

Not a big deal. It was for head space, the bushing was flush with the frame. Smile

Lol casper. I bought a breechplug from CVA once. Paid for the plug and shipping like normal. When the mailman delivered it he was asking me for some change to cover the difference that CVA didn't pay. So I am looking at the mailman like are you serious I paid for shipping and I have to pay more!? Not that the money was an issue but I already paid for shipping. I called CVA of course to complain Laughing and the guy was very rude and told me if I sent him the envelope that had the cost of shipping on it he would refund the change I paid. I hung up on him. So I would have to pay to ship the envelope to him for him for him to refund the other money I came up with lol. I am not joking the least bit.

Yeah I have ordered twice from Natchez. First time I bought a Nikon Monarch scope and when it arrived it was a Nikon Prostaff. I call them to tell them about it and wanting to obviously send it back and get the right one they say they sold out of the Monarch and don't know if or when they would be getting it in. The other time I got a remington 870 shur shot thumbhole stock in Mossy Oak camo and when it arrives I open the box and there is a mossy oak forend and realtree butt stock. Must of thought I wouldn't notice. Oh and I ordered a Redfield scope from SWFA once and when I took it out of the brand new sealed box and looked through it, there were black specs in the scope everywhere. I just ordered a new Nikon rangefinder from Cabelas the other day and when I opened it there was a scratch on the glass....Not going to even get into when I got sent the wrong accura frame three times. LOL. Sorry for the off topic post but I have the worst luck you might say.

At least with Cabelas you can send it back at no costs. I like that.

I just called on the 18th of October 2012 and they charged me $12.94... However when I called (being new to ML) I asked for the shim kit to prevent or limit blow-by. They said the only shim kit they sold was not for that but he would gladly sell me one. The purpose was for the recessed firing pin. So when anyone calls let them know that our firing pin is recessed and then maybe you'll get it shipped out for no charge. I think that's where I messed up. Just a heads up.

Hello all I just got my first inline muzzle loader cva optima the firing pin bushing was set so far in I had to use a screw driver and hammer to tap it out well in doing so i messed up the bushing I got a hold of bpioutdoors they sent me a shim kit and a whole new firing pin kit with bushing, firing pin and spring well the kit cam with 3 .002 2 .020 and 1 .030 it took both the .020 and all 3 the .002 shims with the o ring to get it perfect I was getting crazy blow back my primers were black and the bushing face was too you could actually see sparks come out by the muzzle break thats how bad it was, I did alot of research on it all. I use federal 209a primers with about a .002 crush and the primers come out like new and nothing on bushing want to thank everyone who figured out how to solve this problem. Now I do have a question can anyone tell me the difference between a rifle scope and a muzzle loader scope I cant find anything besides eye relief. I have read alot of people put rifle scopes on and had no problems im thinking on trying this cause I have a rifle scope here already whats your thoughts??

Welcome to the forum, im glad you found us and we were able to help you out with that problem. Its crazy the amount of blow by allowed, but we can tame it and make the gun even better now.

Eye relief IMO would be the biggest difference with the scopes. A lot of centerfire stuff is 3" eye relief, the muzzy scopes are 4.5-5" eye relief. If you are not shooting a massive recoil producing load, a centerfire scope will work perfectly fine.
