Ok i had some time this mornin to play! First i reseated the breech plug (even did muleys trick of gently tapping the wrench with a small hammer) then fired a cap. It would open sometimes but not always, next i tryed to screw in the fireing pin bushing and to my surprise its all the way in. (Barely moved) so again i tryed a cap and it would work 3 outa 4 times so i took her out a shot for the first time. This is the first year i have used blackhorn and i gotta say you guys are 100% right! I love that stuff. Used 90 gr with 250gr tez barnes cci 209m and had 3 shot group inside an inch and a half at 50yds and that was just leaning over the bed of my truck! (After a little sighting in of coarse) brought it home and was amazed at how easy it was to clean! I may never use my centerfire again. Back to the action opening i was opening about 3 of the 4 shots again while shooting. Also when just fireing a cap they are clean when shooting a load they are not as clean, i also tryed unscrewing the bushing alittle but then it never would open.........

Put a thinner shim in and try it then. You are close so don't reduce it by much.

I would suspect that you need a thin shim like mentioned. Is the firing pin bushing flush with the frame when screwed all the way in? Also how dirty are the primers when you are shooting an actual load? Just a little dirty on the tips is not a problem. I am actually confused with this issue because you are using pretty short primers and usually with short primers you would have blowback issues but not needing to adjust for more headspace.

While I hesitate to even say this I think it needs sent back to cva. If your firing pin bushing is flush and not sticking out from the frame and you are using ccim primers which are short primers and two different breechplugs with the same problem I think something else is going on. The only other thing left to try is to get a shim kit so you can screw the bushing into the frame a little more and see if that works.

Take whatever shims it has out, and try it.

That's if it even has any shims in it. If the firing pin bushing is flush with the frame and ccim primers are being used I can't really see how it would be shimmed out to much to the point of causing the frame not to open. Of course the firing pin bushing needs to come out so you can see for sure. See if there is shims or just a rubber o-ring.

if the primers are fairly dirty, im sticking with my first bet that the pressure is shooting the primer back into the firing pin bushing to the point where it actually drives the primer metal into the firing pin hole.

Adjust headspace a bit, if thats the case. Its really hard to tell without being able to see some pictures of the frame area and some recovered primers. But to me, it seems clear that if you cock and fire it again, it dislodged the primer from the bushing and allows it to open freely.

Yeah pictures of the frame would help. He did say he adjusted the bushing out a little bit but the gun wouldn't open at all. It's also doing it when he only fires just a primer. Beats me. I guess the only thing left to do is to get it adjusted some the other way into the frame and see what happens.

I don't know how the v2's firing pin operates but is it not possible that the firing pin return spring is to weak or missing causing the firing pin to stick in the forward position after firing the first time and jamming the gun ?

exactly! The firing pin spring is very easy to take out and see if its possibly broken and not allowing it to return.

Can you use photobucket on the kindle?

Photobucket should have a URL beside the picture somewhere. Copy and paste that URL into the message box just like if you were to type a message.
