Flintlock is the general term for any firearm based on the flintlock mechanism. The term may also apply to the mechanism itself. Introduced at the beginning of the 17th century, the flintlock gun rapidly replaced earlier firearm-ignition technologies, such as the doglock, matchlock, and wheellock mechanisms.
It continued to be in common use for over two centuries, replaced by percussion cap and, later, cartridge-based systems in the early-to-mid 19th century. Although long superseded by modern firearms, flintlock weapons enjoy continuing popularity with black powder shooting enthusiasts. •Replica Flintlock has working mechanism •Crafted by dedicated craftsmen at Kosler in Spain •Authentic size and weight of actual gun •Flintlock makes a super prop gun
