On the old 12 ga there should be a screw in the top of the receiver holding the firing pin in. It will be headless and be screwed down past the top of the receiver.

The firing pin on the H&R is most likely held in place by a pin going across the receiver. Does the H&R have a transfer bar?

I think a lot of old singles & doubles come apart thru the space under the butt stock so.Take the butt plate off,then unscrew and remove the butt stock screw.Then U will prob. see what U need to do to get the receiver apart.If not,THEN take it to a reputable gun mechanic!
Do U have a new firing pin for it already? U mat need to have 1 fabricated... Deuce may be able to turn u one out,that'll NEVER BUST!!

Check for the screw. Single shot shotguns are usually pretty simple.

Get a drimmel toll and make one. Some a very easy if you have model to go by. Temper is fairly important to. Too soft and it wears away fast and too and it will break. Tom
