Flintlock Muskets and Rifles

In the flintlock rifle, a piece of flint held in the jaws of the cock is struck violently against a piece of steel, the hammer or frizzen, sending a shower of sparks into the priming powder in the pan igniting the charge. Flintlocks were said to be invented by robbers who found matchlocks to be unsatisfactory when they lighted their matches it gave away there whereabouts at night. Wheellocks were too expensive back in the 16th century. Medieval Collectibles carries both the flintlock muskets and flintlock rifles that are authentic as the originals but do not fire live ammunition. The two most well known flintlock rifles are the British Brown Bess and the Kentucky flintlock rifle.
