English Lock Pistol, flintlock, 1615-1660
A pretty large flintlock pistol with an overall length of approx. 64 cm and a barrel length of 16"/ approx. 41 cm, which was introduced in the english and dutch military from 1615 and got preferably used by the cavalry.
This replica has a genuine Snaphance-lock with a around 1640 developed Doglock. The cock is being secured with the "dog", a hook behind it, due to a missing half cock notch, to prevent unwanted ignitions during the loading process.
After the weapon was loaded and the cock being cocked, the "dog" fell backwards, thus releasing the gun and making it ready for shooting.
Many conventional English locks were retrofitted with this simple fuse.
This pistol is an impressive and respectable accessory for the reenactment of the English Civil War period, the early colonization era and also the very popular time of piracy in the carribean. The shaft is made of oiled rosewood, the mechanism, the barrel, the trigger guard and the handle cap are made of steel.
Our firearm replicas are intended for decoration or re-enactment. The muzzles have not been drilled, so the weapon is not functional. A gunmaker will be able to drill an ignition opening and have the pistol inspected by the department for firearms.
