Hard not to like that one. Why's the lever drooping? Could be that the misfires are from the block not being all the way in place. Squeeze the lever up and see. Then go get it fixed. Neat rifle.

What is the extra screw on the left side of the action?

That is a beautiful little rifle!  (But I can't help but wonder what it would like like with a vividly colour cased receiver ...)

Maybe a 44 WCF Carbine action frame was used, and someone replaced the sling ring stud with a simple screw?

That's a really nice Low wall. Calledflyer, what is the fix for a droopy lever? Mine is the same.

Spud, I'd give a fix if I had it. But, I only lucked out and had tight ones.
My guess is that the pins are worn, or the flat spring is just off the hammer when it's uncocked- (no tension?). If it's a coil spring, the pins or missing spring. Maybe a wrong lever, maybe worn link. Hard to judge what any one of these old rifles has wrong over the internet. That's why I simply asked the question myself- he's got the rifle, I've got a photo. Good luck to each of you.

Or a timed action where lever has been bent so as not to touch tang and breech block stays in same relation to bore regardless of lever.
