While a flintlock is prettier, I always thought the miquelet was more efficient. One spring serves both the hammer and battery/steel/frizzen. Did you make the guns?

Moharrow/Matchlock,

Tell more about your miquelet escopetas. Living here in Florida, I have become interested n the firearms of the second Spanish period 783-1719. I have built a couple of miquelets but have little to go on. I am in the process of building a "blunder bus" form the Timucuan rebelling period, 1656. Any help you could give would be appreciated.

Mattshlok, The Kentucky long rifle trigger guard should be reconsidered. Nice otherwise.

Who builds a contemporary miquelet lock? Or do they have to be hand built from other sources? And didn't combining the miquelet and snaphaunce locks create the traditional (or as we know it) flintlock?
