First we need to determine what the issue is with the firing pins.
It could be they are just dirty and sticking, or they may be worn and not protruding properly.
Sometimes old shotguns like this have been dry fired a lot, and the firing pin gets mushroomed over so the firing pins do not work properly.
Do you have the ability to disassemble the firing pins, or measure the firing pin protrusion ?
Let me look up that model of shotgun and see if there are any perticular issues with that model or is any special tools will be needed.
Did Both barrels have misfires ?

I looked up the Stevens 5100 shotgun in my books and can not find a Listing for that model.
But my books may just not list models that far back.
But if you post pictures in the Gunsmithing thread, I am sure we can figure out the problem and get you shotgun shooting again.

But with a shotgun that is that old, you could have weak hammer springs or the gun just needs a really good DCOR ( Disassemble,Clean ,Oil, and Reassemble)

I can walk you thru testing procedures that will not require you to be running to the range to test if is working.

I believe it's just simple disassembly and cleaning that will do. The gun hasn't been fired for a couple of decades. That's all. :-)

DCOR
It cures years of neglect.
But I would still like to see what you have.

This shotgun being that old, was made back in the days where you had to maintain your own firearms.
They are fairly simple and can be done for the most part with simple tools like pliers and a screwdriver.
You post those pictures so I can see what model you have, and we can talk you thru what you need to know.

But there is one thing that is important ,
If you have an old gun that has not been shot in years, Ask Questions FIRST, and learn how to take it apart and check it or CLEAN it Before attempting to fire it.
There are people who can and will help.
This could save you from Damaging the gun by firing it, or even getting hurt.

Good news.
I found your model in my gun parts catalog.
The 5100 is the same as the model 311 and they were made by Savage and Springfield as the two companies combined and later with Stevens and Fox.
I have a parts break down schmatic and you can probably look at it or download it from the Gun parts Corp website.
This is not a complicated shotgun, and should be easy for you to take the stock off and clean and oil most of it without major disassembly if you want to try that first.
Let me know if you need further help in taking the Buttstock off, or the Forend off so you can remove the barrels.

It looks like you knew how to take the barrels off, that is good.
To take the buttstock wood off,
First you take off the Butt Plate.
Then you will see a hole in the Buttstock.
You look down that hole , and there will be a Bolt with a screwdriver slot in it.
Take out that bolt with a long screwdriver, and the buttstock will pull off to the rear.

Once the buttstock is off, you can spray all the inside parts with WD-40 and put the butstock back on and try it.
If that does not cure the problem, then we will need to do further investigation and disassembly.

SXS are very simple to dis-assemble and clean. It should not be much of an issue.

The gun look like the Fox double barrels models which remain in production i think till 1988 and if its firing mechanism is similar to fox shot guns which i think must be because the outlook is same. the fox modles does not need much repair they just need fine cleaning and it will be perfect. just remove the buttstock as LAGS have explain it to you. i think the triger gaurd must be having one screw at back side which would be engaged with buttstock, and you have to remove it before you can take the buttstock.

The Fox Double Barrels are similar to the 5100 in many ways but the trigger and firing mechanism on the Fox uses a single trigger and automatic barrel selector.
But both use the same style firing pin set up.
But you are correct about having to remove the rear trigger guard screw to remove the buttstock.
