Where to get parts 0r service for a winchester 50 cal. Apex inline ?

So whats a guy to do when winchester can`t help with parts or service.Only tells you i do not know when you call them tried all the parts sellers no luck. this rifle very tight grouping at 200 meters hate to turn it into a wall hanger. Again its a Winchester APEX 50 CAL INLINE.HOGSHOOTER

Is yours made in Spain?
I have one that is,and it appears to be the same as CVA,but haven't had any issues,so have not needed parts.
Just a guess,good luck!

Trigger houseing and the pin that holds it on slowing being wallowed out. my load is 125gr TRIPLE 7 so im not loading to hot for it.Been shot around 65 to 70 times with barnes spitfire t mz.two others i hunt with have one and they load 150 gr of triple 7 and shot them 150 to 200 times with no wear.maybe i got a bad one? And yes it was made in spain. HOGSHOOTER

CVA APEX not the same as the WINCHESTER APEX mine a fixed barrel rifle with a trapdoor type action you pull down on rear trigger guard that drops open action hammer and all to expose breechplug fot priming and cleaning .Parts may interchange Sounds like one maker copy off the other.CVA you push on the front of trigger guard to prime rifle clean,or change barrel.Still trying to get a hold of CVA to check.HOGSHOOTER
