Jacob Dickert, right hand, flint lock by L&R
Part Number: LOCK-LR-1200
Availability: In Stock
Price: $196.00
This fine lock is the correct “Germanic” style for use on classic American longrifles of the 1760 - 1800 era. Made in the style of Jacob Dickert, who worked in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania.

More complex than the similar Siler lock, notice that the cock jaws point directly into the octagon pan. The unusual frizzen flange fits and seals the pan, keeping priming dry, even though this is not an English waterproof pan design. The well designed tumbler and sear have raised bearing rings turned around the screw holes, for minimum friction. This is a fast lock!

The fly pivots on an integral stud in the tumbler’s fly mortise, preventing the sear from accidentally engaging the half-cock notch when fired. Suitable for use with plain or set triggers. This lock is very similar in size to the large Siler lock, to fit straight octagon or swamped barrels 13/16” to 1-1/8” at the breech.

Cock this lock, and notice that the mainspring rides a special radius cam-action tumbler. This gives the lock a light release, with increasing force through the stroke, due to increasing leverage. Notice how the frizzen tightly engages the pan. Without peaking inside, you would expect an action this smooth to have a fancy swivel link and roller frizzen. The L&R boys are clever.

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