Default A friends Accura V2

An online friend sent me his CVA Accura V2 to go through and clean up properly and get the scope mounted. Blew all the nasty grease out of the action and re-oiled

The owner wanted me to get it all set up for him so i cleaned it, mounted a scope on it and am currently greasing the barrel with Rig + P for rust protection. After that I will shim his head space for W209 primers and sight in.

After blowing out the trigger guts and re-oiling it, another sweet crisp V2 trigger.

Got it out to the 50 yard range with 100gr T7 pellets and struggled badly, The pellets were just crumbling and accuracy wasnt even accurate. Had enough of it and so i went in and measured some 90gr Blackhorn209 loads and went back out, fired a shot, 2 clicks to the left and fired 3 more. Winner! Called Fred and talked to him for quite a while and he'll be buying a couple cans of BH209 while I install a BH209 breech plug. Those pellets are handy but mine went south after a year and a half. Can't have that kind of thing happening.

50 yards

Moving to 100 yards with 90gr BH209 300gr Powerbelt Aerolite. First 2 shots were low, accuracy awesome, 8 clicks up, 2 more shots.



Later I talked to the owner and said, get with the program and switch over to Blackhorn209! He's going to do that and so I installed a Blackhorn209 Breech plug for him and he'll be all set to go.

Wow...quite the experience to be sure. I have had pellets for upwards of 3 or 4 years with never a problem, but they are stored in a very climate controlled area, which I'm sure makes a difference as well.

I just replaced my old Omega with an Accura V2. I ordered the Blackhorn plug and I'm hoping to get out and sight it in this week.

Can you explain the headspace adjustment? I read a little bit about it online. Is this something that I can do at home?

Thanks

Yep you can do it at home yourself. You will need to order some shims from cva though.

A forum member here actually PM'd be and said, can you do to my v2 what you did to his? Yep, his is on the way today for me to go through and clean and sight in LOL.

Here the the adjustment video with shims, step by step before and after.

Thanks Frontier. I watched the vid and it looks pretty straight forward. Now I just need to find someone who has the shims. CVA said they are sold out.
