Does anyone know who can lighten the trigger on a firestorm?I just found a new firestorm.Being that T/C is now out of the flintlock business I figured I'd snatch it up for my son.He won't be ready to hunt with it for probably a year or two and I wanted something on the lighter side.I like the gun but the trigger leaves a lot to be desired.

Doug, those triggers are wicked! My brother has a firestorm, and I think the trigger pull is about 15lbs! Somehow, he manages to shoot it well. Are you familiar with Lou Russell? I don't know if he works on flints at all, but I would imagine he could help you out. He can do about everything else. Pm me if you need his contact info, I think I have a card around here somewhere.

I actually know Lou.He really doesn't like lightening triggers because of liability concerns.

Wicked is no joke.

I figured you might now him, wasn't sure if he would do it or not. I've had a few firing pins replaced there. Lou is a good guy!

Mine bottomed out my trigger pull scale which means its 12 lbs+. I hated it so much that I went ahead and replaced the Lock with an "RPL" from L&R lock company. Its not a direct drop in and does require quite a bit of butchering of the synthetic stock and shortened stock bolt but the lock is much nicer and it dropped the trigger down to 7 lbs.
