Perhaps the most popular style of flint lock found on fine original antique American longrifles, this attractive medium size rifle lock is based on our best Siler internal lock parts. You can be assured of long life, and easy service, if ever needed.

Notice the pointed tail and rounded pan of the lock plate. The tail of the lock plate is slightly lower than the raised panel that forms the lock plate, separated by an attractive molding. The raised panel is surrounded by a chamfered edge.

The frizzen glides over a roller bearing on the frizzen spring, which is retained by a hidden mounting screw. The Ketland family of lock makers were quick to incorporate the best new features in their rifles, fowlers, and flint locks.

World famous, the Ketland family of English gun and flint lock makers opened an American branch, to supply our large market.

Neatly assembled, polished inside, and well tuned, this attractive Golden Age era flint lock features a fly detent in the tumbler, which causes the sear tip to ride over the half-cock safety notch, to allow the use of a set trigger.

Ideal for use on a best quality Golden Age era American longrifle, circa 1790 to 1820, this lock is a wise choice, not only for its use of Siler internals with proven geometry and high reliability, but also for its correct style, and good sparking ability. This well made Classic Ketland flint lock is the work of Mr. Jim Chambers, whose skill is appreciated by flint shooters. His locks make sparks that sizzle.

We recommend using this lock with a 13/16” octagon barrel, up to a 1” octagon barrel. This will allow the top of the pan to be positioned on the centerline of the side flat of the barrel, without causing the mainspring to touch the diagonal flat.

Not yet pre-inlet into any preshaped stock, this new lock will be much appreciated by skilled gunmakers who have mastered the simple technique of hand inletting the lock, to create a unique rifle.

We recommend that you order a dozen Flint-#ENG-6 English 3/4" gun flints, too.
