They also had a percussion firestorm. Uses 209 primers. While the primer holder works I have a problem with the lock moving and changing the geometry of the hammer. Just a wall hanger for now.

"21st century period correct"
I LOVE it...
If you can find a walnut New Englander stock, I THINK it might work for your Firestorm. Swap out the appropriate metal. The sticking point may be the tang. Look up pics to get a better idea.
As far as the trigger goes, my one Pennsylvania Hunter had a poor trigger. Very heavy...
I have some molybdenum disufide grease, and a dab on the tumbler notches, and the sear arm that bears on the trigger, worked miracles.
Enjoy your Firestorm!

Thanks, I'll try that on the trigger mech.

Question... Do you think your trigger was a bit heavy right out of the box?
Purchased both used. The percussion is a lot light than the flint. I am a bit biased, i use set triggers on other rifles.

Your pictures reminded me of my percussion Greyhawk. Handy, accurate, and you can't hurt it.

The old-timers were practical men. I like to think that if stainless steel and rynite stocks had existed back in the day, the old-timers would've used them.
