CVA Hunterbolt #11 - Anyone Have/Had One ?

I have a question about the bolt/hammer assembly. Has anyone ever had an issue with not being able to lift the bolt handle after firing ? The gun works flawlessly, except for the new issue of having to pry the hammer back about 1/8" to be able to lift the bolt handle in order to slide the bolt back. This is an original #11 cap set up.

I have completely disassembled the bolt for cleaning and maint. and put it all back together properly. I was able to get it sighted yesterday and acquired nice 2" groups at 50 yards.

Really nice gun. I don't care for the cheap hollow composite camo stock and would like to sell this gun, but, I have resolve this minor issue with the bolt action first.

PROBLEM SOLVED ! WORKS GREAT NOW.

Problem solved with the CVA bolt action hang up. I had to tap the recock finger back down on the hammer shaft and put a dab of red locktite on it. I reblued all the bolt assembly parts, oiled them well, put it all back together, and dry fired it 4-5 times and it recocked perfectly. The junk "press-fit" assembly had developed a space. Once I got it seated again, the bolt action works flawlessly now.

Really nice gun. I sighted it in at 50 yards back on Sunday and it took all of about 6 shots to put it on the bullseye. Shot 100 grains of Triple 7 with 295 CVA PowerBelts and it's ready for Deer hunting now. The new scope, rings, and bases are great. I don't particularly care for this gun myself, but, until I sell it, it will be ok for my nephew to use for this season. I have a few bucks invested in the scope and hardware, had to buy a couple new bolt stop screws, and had to buy the breech tool. I would like to upgrade to the 209 kit, but, I can not find the kit anywhere in stock.
