Re: Need help to identify #3
Good grief, JimK, do you want to argue about everything I say?
I wrote what I did because you said, ''I agree with BullShoot on moving the hammer forward and lowering the cock. (Just to nitpick on flintlock terminology!)'' It seems as though you confused the terms.
''Hammer'' = ''frizzen'' ?
and flintlock is called a snaphaunce in old books?
Can you provide documentary evidence of either statement?
The terms ''fusil'' and 'fuzee' are older than a flintlock.
Not only in modern terminology but in contemporary terminology, the snaphaunce was called a snaphaunce - and by other names also.
Please don't continue to compound your errors. I get tired of typing. If you would like to continue this ''conversation'', may I suggest we do it by email and not bother the good folks on the forum.
With apologies to all,
