Swedish Snaplock (899)

This is a very early 1600’s snaplock. This very basic pattern is a little later than our (685) above, in that the frizzen now covers the pan instead of having a manual cover. In this lock you notice that the face of the frizzen actually turns sideways to form the safety where as the early snaplocks did not have a half cock. You can close the frizzen, turn the striking face out and let the cock down on top of the lower portion of the frizzen. This became a predominate feature of Swedish locks well into the 19th century. Most of the locks in this period with this size and shape were used to convert matchlock muskets to the more versatile flintlock. We have a nice full musket stock for this set now. The lock plate is 7 1/2" x 1 1/2". The throw of the cock is 2 3/4".
