    First use jeweler files to clean the edges and put a tiny amount of draft to make the inletting easier. Be sure to bend them off the stock till they match the contour where they will set before in letting.

    Yeah Phil thanks. I learned to cut the wood first with my exacto knife. That give a good outline. Take my time.

    Eutycus I ordered that trigger a few minutes ago. Will have to fit it and drill and tap 2 holes. One for tang screw and the other for trigger guard. May need other adjustments but I think this will be my answer.

    The one depicted in the picture comes with no holes? Or the threads need to be tapped to resize them?

    Pretty sure they come with out tapped holes. Not a real big deal. Got a drill press? Could do it with a hand drill, better on drill press. Got the old trigger as a pattern. You can get a metric tap set at Ace Harware. I worked on Japanese machines for last 22 years. I got metric tools.

    I've always usually just made minor repairs and filled voids with good old JBWeld.The old original dark gray epoxy. Is there a way or "trick" to staining or coloring it to match the wood work?

    Here is a some pictures of the trigger I ordered. Yes there is no holes and it is too wide and too long. Must be fitted. As a bonus here are pics of my iron right now as of today. IMG_0652.JPG IMG_0653.JPG IMG_0645.JPG IMG_0646.JPG IMG_0647.JPG IMG_0648.JPG IMG_0649.JPG IMG_0650.JPG

    If you go to CASBOOLITS.GUNLOADS.COM then FORUMS then GUNS & SHOOTING then MUZZLELOADER. There is a sticky called "my fix for a bad trigger on CVA pistol". The original pictures are gone, thanks to Photobucket, but there are a few pictures, the ones I posted, that show what's going on. The discussions are pretty good . Basically the same as I will do with the L&R trigger I will put in my flintlock Kentucky . I may just do the fix here on my project pistol . Haven't even shot it yet and already modifying it . Hell that's what it is there for. To practice on and to learn from . Always looking to improve.

    I just bought one of the CVA Mountain Pistols, the one that looks like a Lyman Plains Pistol.

    It's in the mail , I just paid the guy yesterday for it.

    Front sight is backward but if it's a 3/8 dovetail I have a steel blade I want to put in

    If it's not 3\8 all you need is few minutes and a vise and a triangle safe cut file from Brownells and you make it 3\8.

    I'll have to see what I get when it arrives , some of these guns have a wierd. 350 dovetail.

    If I really love the gun and it works well, I'll probably file out the dovetail unless I can live with the factory sight.

    I'm looking for something I can use in semi local matches and make sure I'm within all the rules, plus I'm trying to spark interest in muzzleloading matches at my local gun club .

    Unless it has been ‘upgraded’ somewhere along the way I’d just about guarantee it has the standard .360 European dovetail.
