PostSubject: CVA Finish   January 8th 2014, 7:59 pm

The other thread sort of got me thinking about the finishes and I thought I would just start another thread instead of clogging that one up with something that may not be relevant. My gun is a Optima V2 black and "blue". When looking over my gun I can automatically tell the frame is different then the barrel. The barrel is actually blued but the frame is not blued but has a black coating on it. What kind of coating I don't know. For all I know it is just black paint because it comes right off. Lol. I know it is a coating because it developed a chip on the trigger guard and when I rubbed my nail across it it chipped some more. You can feel and see that it is a coating and not blued. It also comes off pretty easy around the firing pin bushing. Here are some photo's I thought I would share and feel free to give your thoughts.





This picture may hopefully give you an idea between the color difference between the barrel and frame.

Probably the same crap they put on the MR's.

I don't have much in the gun so it doesn't bother me but I did find it interesting. I've only had it hunting once. Just not sure why they wouldn't blue frame like the barrel. Once this stuff starts to chip I suspect it will come off even more.

It is weird. I've had blued Wolf's, and I seem to remember they had blued receivers.

I swear this black finish looks like primer.

Send it back to CVA if you think it looks bad now look at it in 2 or 3 years

I don't have much in the gun so it really isn't a big deal. If it makes it around my house for 2 or 3 years it probably deserves to stay. Lol. It won't be getting sent back to CVA unless it falls apart and even then...last time I sent something back to them I never could get them to send me the the right thing back. And really all they would do is give me another one that has the same finish. It shoots good, great trigger, and functions how it should. I just thought I would share my experience with this finish on the frame since I thought it was interesting it was different from the barrel.

its an alloy frame, pretty hard to do anything but paint it. I've had my wolf, accura "s" for years without problems like this. I think they did a change up to that original MR stuff. They will end up regretting it IMO.

Yeah I could just strip it off and have a stainless looking frame with a blue barrel.  Razz I will likely just let it be though.

yep, strip it down the road and repaint it. If you ever do paint it, apply a few thin coats of diamond finish, that scheet is as solid as a rock!
