Snaphaunce fowler in 12 gauge in the style of the Forbes fowler that came over on the Mayflower. All iron furniture, forged trigger guard, unique safety included on the lock.
I had a few flintlocks to repair and assemble, just could not resist putting this big snaphaunce together. As you can see, it is much more complicated than a classic flintlock, but is far easier to tune than a wheel-lock. The snaphaunce shares some of the features of a wheel-lock, mainly the horizontal sear & trigger mechanism and the sliding pan cover. It also features the two separate safety systems, see the photos above.
