    Well I got a traditions .50 caliber kentucky rifle last christmas and it's already broken. The mechanism is working fine however, the problem is the screw that holds the sear to the side plate has had its threads stripped and now when I try to tighten it, it just starts to wiggle out with every pull of the trigger. It seems like a simple fix but I can't find the sear screw anywhere online. If anyone knows a place I can find a replacement screw or how to fix stripped screw threads I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

    Try Traditions first. If they can't help you, then try Fastenal. Get a screw pitch gauge to determine its pitch.
