Description:

Unlike a true flintlock, this snaplock does not have a half-cock notch. Instead, the frizzen rotates to be out of line for safety while loading. Other similar "birding rifles" have been dated to the mid-17th century. Provenance: The Dr. Douglas Sirkin Collection; The Collection of Joe M. Wanenmacher Jr
