I already posted this over at THR but I thought I'd see if anyone here knows how to do this.

I have an 1842 model military pistol. Recently I had a couple of screws replaced in the lock and they are identical to the original but now it won't hold on half cock. It worked properly before I had those screws replaced but I guess the fellow that I had make the replacement screws didn't quite get things back together right. Anyone know how to tune the lock to make the half cock position firm and safe?

Thanks CnB
