    The Very old Craft of making flint locks

    I don't know how many of the gunsmiths here have seen this but I think it is amazing. Glad they have preserved the craft.

    Thank ya'll for the video AND for the link to the history of Wallace. Both are really good. Amazing how the wood screws where cut by hand with a file. Had to mark where each would go because no two were the same. WOW!!! In the 1700s/1800s a rifle was a major purchase for sure.

    When I was 9-12, the family went to Williamsburg on vacation and toured the colonial village. Spent most my time in the blacksmith and gunsmith shops with my father. Memorable, educational and my start down the firear road.
