Example text

Spanish Miquelet Early Spanish gunsmiths, influenced by German trends, produced finely crafted, although relatively austere, wheel locks and snaphaunces before developing their own national form, the miquelet. The miquelet, or Spanish lock, first appeared in Spain at the end of the sixteenth century. In little more than twenty-five years it replaced both the wheel lock and the snaphaunce as the primary product of Spain’s Madrid and Ripoll gun shops. Spanish craftsmen, already famous for their fine metallurgy, enhanced their reputations with their high-quality firearms.

Often called the French lock after its country of origin, the true flintlock quickly replaced all its predecessors in most of Europe until it was replaced by the percussion system in the 1840s. The vast majority of snaphaunces were, as were their predecessors, muzzle-loaded weapons that required a pinch of powder in their priming pan for primary ignition. ” The snaphaunce can most apparently be distinguished from later flintlocks in that its pan cover and battery are two separate pieces. The snaphaunce became very popular in Scotland, where it evolved into a distinct variation of its European cousins and reached its height of sophistication in the finely crafted weapons produced by such masters as the Cominazzo family in Brescia, Italy, between 1630 and 1665.

It was, however, a favored military weapon during its service, and numerous examples made their way to the English colonies. Sometimes known as the Jacobean lock, it improved on the miquelet in having its main spring as well as most other essential components attached to the inside of the lock plate rather than externally, thus protecting them from damage. The two distinguishing features of the English lock were its combined pan cover and battery (tensioned by an external V-shaped spring) and a sear arrangement that allowed a half-cock position.
