Looseness With Forearm Off?

In short, I'd say yes it's normal (I don't like it either) but there really isn't much you can do (that I know of) without making something else worse.
The good news is it's a muzzleloader so you don't have to be as concerned with headspace issues that sometimes crop up with break action centerfires.

i have had several threads on here about my optima, so far ya'll or cva have help straighten them out. this time i have question about barrel to frame tightness, when i take the forearm off and hold the stock tight there is a slight movement side to side.i can't see it but can feel it just a little, there is no up and down movement. with the forearm on there is no movement, i tried my other optima the one i've never fired and its the same way. with the forearms on they are tight but take the forearms off and there is slight movement. is this normal?, i contacted cva again and they said its ok to have movement with the forearm off, but it should be tight with the forearm on. have any of ya'll tried your's to see if they are tight with the forearm off? i'm not talking about a lot of wobble but if i hold the frame tight there is slight movement with the forearm off. thanks for any help.
As already said, forearm wobble on break open rifles is not uncommon. I have heard others complain about the same thing. What they did to correct it, I do not know. On some of the Encores for instance they replace pins. On a CVA I have no idea what to do. Just follow the recommendations of the company I guess. I have only one forearm rifle and luckily mine is nice and tight. How does the rifle shoot would be my concern. If it holds groups, I would just learn to live with it.
