I was wandering the catacombs in my basement....oh, wait that's a different story! Anyway, here is the very first flintlock I purchased...a Scottish ram-horn butt all metal pistol.

A double set trigger would be the perfect solution to have a light trigger pull, but I have yet to find a double set trigger that will fit.

You will also have to have a lock with a fly.

I'll bet a single-set trigger would work (assuming you find the lock with a fly), as they are a lot smaller in size. I have one, I think it was made by Cain.

And then, there is this li'l gal. I think it has to be maybe the smallest flintlock lock I have seen. This is original with silver furniture...butt cap, trigger guard, entry pipe and ramrod tip.

'Nuther one. I bought this  a while ago, don't think it has been fired. Probably built from a kit judging from the fit of the furniture. Not marked as to maker or date code.

CVA Colonial made in Spain. I had one.

I thought it had the CVA/Jukar look to it.

Regards,
Richard

Mazo, I would almost go so far as to call those little flinters "cute".
Almost...

Thanks guys! Next up.... A Johnson Mdl. 1836 military pistol; this is the second contract  and made in 1840. So marked on the lock plate. This was rather aggressively "cleaned" when I got it (wire brush?) and missing the hammer. I do have a repro hammer, just haven't got a round tuit.

Keep tripping over these guys....this is a repro 1803 Harper's Ferry pistol. There were a number of makers/importers for this style pistol. They all seem to be based on the British Tower or Sea Pistol. This one has the brass band around the forestock so that makes it the Harper's Ferry?
