Tulle fusil-de-chasse Flint Lock

You can build an early flint fowling gun, “fusil fin" (fine fowler), trade gun, or “fusil-de-chasse". Order Colonial Frontier Guns by T.M. Hamilton, which shows photos and drawings of rare French arms. We offer full size plans for this fusil, originally made in Tulle, France, and widely traded across Canada and the Northern United States.

French troupes de la Marine used fusils during the French & Indian War era. They were lighter and handier than infantry muskets. You may wish to mark the plate with a French “fleur-de-lis", or anchor. See Sketchbook ‘56 by Ted Spring, and Colonial Frontier Guns for examples of old lock plates and marks.

This is the so-called “forged" plate design, with attached pan, but no pan bridle arm. The frizzen pivots on an oversize shouldered screw. Notice the chamfered edge around the plate.

File a molding across the tail, slim and reshape the cock, and suddenly this lock fits an early transitional longrifle.
Fitted with a fly detent, this lock works equally well with a set trigger or plain trigger, which we recommend. The beefy mainspring is very snappy. This is a quick surefire lock, despite its big size.

French guns were typically .60 to .69 caliber. Use this lock with a round, octagon or swamped barrel of 15/16" to 1-1/4" at the breech.

We recommend that you order a dozen Flint-#ENG-7 English 7/8" gun flints, too.

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