PostSubject: CVA Plainsman    March 29th 2015, 11:39 am

Now that hunting season and I've verified my zero's until late summer I'd like to shoot this rifle again I tried it about a year ago with promising results.  I've cleaned the barrel which actually in great shape with no rust I used some Remington 40 x cleaner which either removed some lead or stubborn following as it feels smooth as silk.  The trigger is another issue I'd like to smooth the lock out a little but the CVA manual contains no language showing how to get the lock off the stock.  Anybody have a method to get the lock off so i can see whats going on in there ?

Remove the screw"s" on the side of the lock panel, put it on half stock and carefully pull it out of the stock.

Also if you want to remove the trigger, you will have to remove the tang screw, thats what holds it into the stock.

Clyde,

If it's stubborn or starts out crooked, replace it as it was, reinsert the screw about 2 turns and then gently tap the head of the screw with a leather or rubber mallet while wiggling the hammer. That should free it up without binding.

Not to be dense but are we talking about the screw on the upper left side of the stock ? I figured the tang screw controlled the trigger .

Yep. Just remove that one and you can tap the lock out of the stock.
