Need some help guys. Got this CVA Wolf COmpact (youth) model for my nephew who is 10 yrs old. Got the CVA Universal Muzzleloader Mount.
Now I have mounted a million scopes on regular rifles ..well maybe not a million but at least 75 to 100 over my 67 years on mine and other peoples. I have never been stumped like this before.
First In-line I ever dealt with so..here goes.. Following the instructions I mounted the two bases. As you can see in the pics there is no way you can mount the bases that give a good distance between them. No matter how you try to flip them, they still end up this close. I can't believe the sco0pe is supposed to look like this when finished mounted. Does anyone have this rifle and this exact mount and what did you run into ???? Maybe it is supposed to be mounted like that. Usually the turrets are in the middle of the rings, but if I put them in the middle of the rings I have about 1/8 inch to play with that I can move the scope forward and back for eye relief....confused.

Relative my above post....what is that long slot to the right of the primer socket on the breech plug for??. The instructions on the rifle does not even mention it. I may be a little dumb when it comes to these In line muzzy loaders. I have built about 5 flint locks and use them all the time. Not kits either, from blank wood, and Getz bbls, and Siler locks but I never ran into this stuff before....old school I guess.

that rear slot in the plug is for a tool to fit the breech plug to your rifle. You dont have to worry about it, this is done at the factory. If you ever need a new plug, the new plug will come with the wrench and you just seat it really tight and then back off. It forms the nose of the breech plug to your rifle.

That looks like an oldie scope that does not offer much eye relief at all.

The next best ring set up will be the Durasight dead on mount system.


This will be a helper as well:http://gandersmuzzleloadingblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/cva-muzzle-loaders-keepem-clean.html

In your first picture if you cant turn that rear mount around, and leave the front the same then i would suggest a more compact scope, or drill, and tap to properly fit.

Mathews Shooter, Frontier Gander and Great white hunter,
I want to thank you all for trying to help me out. First of all MAt SHooter, that is my problem, those darn bases cannot be flipped around. Thats what I wanted to do. Have one facing one way and having the other facing the other way. If you can see in the one pic of just the bases, you see a slot across each one, well the ring has to fit in there and if I flip one of them the holes don't line up with the holes in the bbl.
Frontier Shooter, yes that is just an old 4x weaver I had for 40 years on the shelf. We are going to put a 3x9 on for him that his dad has. Either way this gun is drilled too close together for my mind. The only thing I can do is go to that mount you show in the pic. His dad already bought thhis one tho....not sure what I'm going to do. I was just trying to find out if I was missing something,,,and mounting it wrong. Thanks again all of you guys.

I had a Wolf that was exactly the same problem. It happens with two piece mounts. Flip the rear mount 180* and put the bell in between the rings. You won't have much clearance but as long as the rings aren't touching the adjustment "cube" you'll be fine. Your other option is to buy a DuraSight 1-piece mount that's made for the Wolf. Hope this helps.

hunter177,
That is exactly whaty I did...bought the Durasight one piece
mount. Just finished sighting it in today and it is shooting great. Thanks for all the help and suggestions.
I hope he gets a shot at a nice doe. I only sighted it in for 50 yds. He is ten yrs. old and I don't want him wounding any deer ...................yet...
