I have a Firestorm and am having much trouble trying to get a good spark. I have English, German and TC Agate flints. I had trouble last season and finally purchased a new frizzen (at a local sports shop) that was hardened at a local heat treat shop. After installing, it seemed a little better and after a season ending cleaning, I put the gun away for the year. However, I shot it (and misfired) this morning and my troubles with spark were "re-ignited". I am not sure what to do at this point. Advise would be greatly appreciated.

loosen the screw up on the side that holds the hammer it is prob to tight.i had the prob with my firestorm.just put it in with your finger with some locktight on it and you will have good spark then never had a misfire after that.

I just tried this and all it seems to do is create some "play" with the hammer. The spark didn't seem to improve. I am not sure that I understand how this helps?
