    Hi can anyone tell me about a flintlock I have? It has what appears to be the name. MATEU. on the lock plate under the pan and is very ornate. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

    Kalgacas Welcome !

    but without further info or pictures it'd be very very hard to give you decent information

    There where makers both MATEU and MATEUS from portugal , but very different companies that existed at very different times one started in the wheel lock day and the other the later end of the flintlock period so both over lapped at one short time

    so if you have pictures please post
