Hi , new to the forum. Amy advice appreciated. This clip on the barrel of my CVA Optima 50 caliber keeps popping off. Started because when I carry it i accidentally pull the release in front of the trigger guard. I figured out how to pop it back on using my vise, but does not stay.

Any ideas? Thanks. It's muzzleloader season in Texas and I need to get back out there 👍. Thanks.

That's the clip for the forearm, looks like. Kinda cheesy set up. I have the Optima pistol so it looks familiar. I'd contact CVA for a new clip. They should hook you up.
In the meantime, there's always good old duct tape. A wrap or two around the barrel should hold it in place. Take a screwdriver and poke a hole where the screw goes.
Or, put the clip back in place and a few drops of Gorilla glue might work temporarily.

Try squeezing it in a little bit with pliers before you put it back on. CVA will for sure send you a new one.

CVA is usually pretty good about such things. I hope you getter fixed and good luck with the hunting.
