I’m looking for an Austin & Halleck flint mountain rifle set trigger adjustment screw, I lost mine. The rifle barrel is marked Provo in case there was a difference with their different production locations. Anyone know where I might find one (or three). Thanks for your help.

Yes, Try your local hardware stores. Start with the "set" screws...c
I went to my local hardware store and asked about set screws, the clerk said they had lots of sets of screws so I had to explain that I was looking for a single screw that would adjust how far a fulcrum could go up and/or down. After thinking for a moment the clerk took me over to a stool with a round seat and said sit. So I sat down and to my surprise the clerk gave me a hard push on my shoulder and that push made me spin on that stool. The clerk then explained that there was a big screw attached to the bottom of the round seat and that a push on one shoulder would make the sitter go up and a push on the other shoulder would make the sitter go down. The clerk admitted that he did not know what fulcrum I was talking about but would be happy to sell me the stool after all sit and sat are awful close to set. I was able to leave the store without buying the stool when I explained his set screw was much too big, the one I was looking for was about 1/16" in diameter with very fine threads.

Fun story...but, asking most hardware store employees to help with anything gun related is likely a waste of time...Just try for screw fit and cut to needed size if needed has worked for me many time at the local True Value...c

Deer Creek Products has all the leftover pArts from AH. I bought a hammer and sear from them recently. A&H used triggers and locks made by Ardesa Spain. Same company that makes Traditions. Some of Traditions parts interchange with A&H. I have bought parts directly from Ardesa also.
