Default CVA Serial Number???

Remove this ad.....
become a Supporting Member today.
I just bought a new CVA Wolf .50 and cannot find a serial number anywhere on the gun or in the box it came in. Where do I find the serial number? I called the customer service number and got a recording that the offices are closed and to call back during regular hours (8-4 EST) - I called at 12:45.

Yeah, I didn't check there. I thought that would be a dumb place to put the serial number, but I'll check for it there in a bit. Gotta go get some anti-sieze grease for the breech plug, didn't know I needed it.

Well thanks everybody- it was under the forearm. That is the dumbest place for a serial number-ever. BTW- still have not heard from CVA. Sent them an email about it last night and called today. No answer on either. kinda makes me a little worried about what their customer service is like.

Why would they be closed today? That would explain why they didn't answer the phone or email though. I haven't bought a new gun since 1986, and didn't know they're hiding the serial numbers. Are they doing that on all the guns now?
