PostSubject: Cant get double set triggers to work on CVA Hawken Kit gun.   April 11th 2015, 9:22 pm

I ended up buying a CVA Hawken Kit gun on GB a while back ago. It went together pretty good though I had to order some of the parts from Deer Creek. I had a problem with the lock staying calked or half calcked. I adjusted the screw between the triggers and nothing happened. There is also a small alan head screw just behind the rear trigger that I adjusted and got the rifle to calk and half calk and fire from the front trigger only. I took the triggers out of the rifle to see if they would function properly out of the gun. The set trigger still wouldnt set. I cleaned everything as best as I could and in the process sent the thin wire spring shooting across the room. I looked everywhere for it and it was never found. I ended up ordering another trigger mech. from Deer Creek. Its supposed to be here Monday. Can anyone give me some advice on how to get these triggers to function and the hammer to calk and half calk. I just want everything to work properly. I won the gun on GB and paid only $36.00 and I put a few parts into her. If I can get this problem figured out she should be a good shooter. cowboys1062

Whole entire manual here for adjusting the trigger. That wire spring could have been weak from bending it and if that happens, it will not apply enough pressure to keep it secure while the rear trigger engages it, holding it in place.

I got the trigger mech. in on Monday from Deer Creek. I cleaned and oiled them up real good and installed them into my muzzleloader. It half cocks and full cocks the way it should and the set trigger and firing trigger works just fine. I didnt have to make any adjustments. All is well! I like it when everything comes together the way it should. Thankyou for your reply and pic. It was very helpful and a learning experience for me. Respectfully, cowboys1062.
