The screw is intended to keep the wedge in it's slot when backed out of the barrel.

There should be about .008" of clearance between the forcing cone and the cylinder face with the wedge in place. If that's not the case then the cylinder arbor is too short (a very common 'feature' with replicas). Many ways to correct this problem - search the forum for 'short arbor'.

A loose wedge and/or a 'wobble' in the barrel are not good. See above paragraph.

Don't know what you mean by 'barrel tuning'. I'd open up the rear site in the hammer by filing the right side.
