#670- Snaphaunce fowler

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.
