How to Assemble a CVA Wolf Trigger Group

by Jeremiah Blanchard

The CVA Wolf is a break-action muzzleloading rifle. According to CVA, the original Wolf muzzleloader is the number-one-selling muzzleloader in the world. These weapons are perfect for those wanting a modern feel with a primitive hunting weapon, and an ideal choice for hunters to use in primitive season. As with all weapons, periodic maintenance is essential to optimal performance. Occasionally the Wolf trigger group must be removed for maintenance or replacement. The removal process can be accomplished with little difficulty. (Note that you should never attempt maintenance on a loaded firearm, and should never attempt maintenance on a muzzleloader with a powder charge in the chamber. Always ensure that the weapon is free from powder.)

1. Slide the trigger into the slot on the bottom of the trigger housing. Hold it in place with your finger.

2. Insert the trigger retention pin into the hole above the trigger. Tap the pin in using a plastic hammer.

3. Slide the trigger tension spring over the top of the trigger. The spring will have corresponding grooves inside the trigger housing. Fold the spring down then pull the trigger to the rear until you hear a click.

4. Screw in the travel screw, just beneath the hammer and sear. Finger tighten the travel screw only because you may need to make adjustments later for travel and trigger pull.

5. Slide the trigger assembly into its slot on the underside of the weapon frame. Insert the two housing pins and tap in using a plastic hammer.
