American Classic left longrifle Flint Lock, by L&R

New competition for the Siler lock, L&R’s new “Germanic” lock is for use on classic American longrifles of the 1760-1800 era. It is made to fit large Siler lock mortise.

The cam action angle of the tumbler engages the mainspring. This really speeds lock time. Turned bearing surfaces on the tumbler and sear minimize friction, essential during cold weather hunting. Improved cock geometry allows a shorter stroke, with better sparks thrown squarely into the pan. L&R’s new “one position” sear returns to the same angle whether uncocked, half-cocked or full-cocked. Trigger engagement can be perfect.

Made to fit the large Siler mortise, this plate is about .005” larger, to insure a tight fit. The longer tail must be inlet, or filed to fit. A thick bolster spaces this lock farther from the barrel, for widely spaced lock panels that instantly identify an early rifle. Thin the bolster for a more graceful look or to match the Siler.

L&R’s clever fly detent and frizzen seal lip are included in this lock. These improvements have become a signature of L&R’s fine workmanship, of late. This frizzen spring uses a inside screw. It avoids the tight bend at front, a weak point on some locks.

A matching “early Classic” flint lock, without the pan bridle, and percussion “conversion” lock are available.

Once known as the Vance Flint Lock, our friends at L&R have fine tuned the improvements. New L&R parts fit the Vance lock, except tumbler, fly, and bridle must be installed as a group.

With Siler styling, wide bolster, tight fit to mortise, turned bearings, sealed frizzen with roller, one position sear, cam-action mainspring, and improved cock geometry, this is a nice lock.

Spare parts for the Classic flintlock are machined and tempered, ready to use, with little or no fitting. With the exception of the frizzen which must be fitted before hardening.

This lock exactly matches our right hand Classicflint lock.

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