A Flintlock

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a Wilkinson flintlock from around 1780's era! Cost £700, but is a brass, iron  & walnut beauty. '15mm' balls & has been well looked after. I always have loved the 'romantic' brutality of antique weaponry. Each one a work of art!

I also found a battered but very ornate '17mm' ball Italian flintlock with Roman numerls '1720' along the lock. It was still loaded.  I would not want to be shot with one of these. They were  very 'dirty' weapons!

I missed this post for some reason but I'm glad I ran onto it now.

Any chance of photos of your new finds.  They sound most interesting.

Regards
