    I've bought a lot of old flintlocks and parts and I got a Brown Bess lock that I'd like to restore.

    There are a couple of flintcocks with different throws to choose from when ordering so how do I know which one to get?

    The throw ought to be related to the distance between the center of the nut and the center of the pan or something.
