Interesting guys, Why would this system make a good safety? Sounds like this could be a rare find my Father made?
thik of how the flintlock functions.. flint goes down, knocks frizen out of way and blows sparks into the pan for the flash hole.. if a metal flap is down , under the frizen.. sparks aren't as apt to make it to the pan. same with rain i guess...

maybee this was the 1800's version of a delta force amphibous assault carbine.. :)

pirate jumps out of the water pours the water out of his gun bbl, flips wish water 'resistant' pan cover out of the way and unleashes his massive single shot volley.. :)

I used jack sparrow for the pirate :) he's odd enough to do something like that.. :)
