1746 - Willits, Brown Bess Musket Flint Lock Kit

This kit consists of as-cast parts, and screws. These First Model Brown Bess lock parts are cast directly from an original antique lock, by Willits - 1746.

The mainspring is hardened and tempered, VERY strong, ready for use. It can also be fitted to the 1726 ~ Clinton lock parts by The Rifle Shoppe.

The tumbler and sear are turned and precision cut from 4140 steel, hardened and tempered. They can also be fitted to the 1726 ~ Clinton lock parts by The Rifle Shoppe, as can these other screws and parts. Note that the Clinton lock requires a special frizzen pivot screw, with no pan bridle arm, not included.
An advanced project, you must debur, polish, drill, tap, harden, temper, and assemble the lock. Assembly requires skilled use of a drill press, and some knowledge of lock geometry.
We offer the taps, drills, hardening compound, and instructions for home tempering.

Use #TAP-8-32-P and tap drill #DRILL-29 and clearance #DRILL-16.

Harden the frizzen using Track's special #TRU-SPARK carbo-nitride surface hardening compound.
We recommend that you order a dozen #Flint-ENG-9 English 1-1/8" gun flints, too.

This lock is shown at exact-full-size, in Track's new catalog for gunmakers and gunsmiths.
