PostSubject: CVA headspacing question   September 11th 2012, 12:20 pm

new member. I've read 3 different posts on correcting the headspace to prevent blowback. the #60 oring method, the teflon tape method, and the CVA shim kit method. not interested in quick/cheap/easy, looking for most permanent and correct. So which one is it?
I haven't fired my new Optima yet, want to get the BH209 plug installed and headspace set before I do anything. ordered the plug today. if I need to order anything else I'd like to do that pretty quick also.

Very Happy

First off tjones96761, Welcome aboard Exclamation Glad you can join us. Great bunch of guys here that will help you out with any problems or questions.
I think its a matter of opinion/choice on that head spacing question. Some members like the 0-RINGS that you put in front of your primer in the primer cup and some like the #60 O-RING behind the bushing. CVA has come out with those shims now and I haven't tried them as yet but they are ordered. Never used the teflon tape for head spacing. Used that tape when I was shooting my V1 and had to keep the B/P LUBED. Now with Blackhorn you don't need any lube on the plug. I've gotten as many as 40 shots off before I swabbed the barrel. I do pull the plug every 6 to 8 shots to clear it from carbon build up.
GOOD LUCK..............I'm sure you'll get a few more opinions............

I've used all three methods. The shims are by far the best way for me.

tjones96761, the most permanent method is the CVA shim kit. Welcome to the forum.

Just an FYI,

I'm having some blowback from my new Accura MR so I sent an e-mail to bpiguns.com about blowback and this was their response to the issue:

"Blowback is common, the shim kit is designed to move your firing pin bushing forward so that it is flush with the receiver. It is not designed to move the firing pin bushing out closer to the primer. By moving the bushing out from the receiver to make it closer to the primer will cause damage to the receiver. If your bushing is not flush then we have the shim kits available for $4.99 plus $7.95 S/H. These are not necessary for your gun, please be aware that muzzleloaders will have blow back and the shim kit will not correct this problem. If you would like to place an order for one then you can contact our customer service line at 770-449-4687."

Yeah they are afraid someone will adjust it to much LOL. Its perfectly safe and will not damage the gun at all. Blow by is normal on old muzzleloaders, not new!
