English Dog Lock Pistol

Live firing English doglock flintlock pistols for sale.  The "dog lock" being a simple outside mechanism acting as a latch which catches onto the tail end of the cock preventing the cock from falling forward when the trigger is pulled.  The latch is disengaged by pulling the cock back to the full position and the latch of the dog lock mechanism simply swings clear allowing the flintlock to fire.  This is an ideal early black powder flintlock firearm for pirate reenacting and the living historian.  This model does have an internal 1/2 cock or "safety" position.

All of the locks of our muskets and pistols are removed and checked for good function.  The frizzens are case hardened to ensure a nice spark and the breech is drilled with a 3/32" vent hole.

As a value added service we will "break down" the lock, polish all mated moving parts and harden the tumbler and sear for improved lock performance and reliability.  This added service is $50.00

We warranty out locks for one year parts and labor.  All you need to do is get the lock to us.  Neglect of the lock (heavy rust) and amateur tinkering will void the warranty.  Our turn around time for repair is very fast so please be sure to take advantage our our professional service.  Be sure to contact us for instructions before sending it in.

India flintlock musket and pistols are not proofed by the country of manufacture nor is there a U.S. standard for muzzle loaders to proof by.

We do offer a test firing service using a double black powder charge and a double ball load.  This is an additional service and you can read more about it on the Q & A page. $75.00
