I've said this before here on the Board.....

The heart and soul of a flintlock piece is the LOCK! Without a properly tuned lock you will have nothing but trouble, and while I've never owned a production flintlock, I've yet to see one with a lock that was acceptable without working on it. Pedersolli comes the closest, and from what I've seen this brand is usually pretty good, though even here the lock occasionally could stand a little minor "tweeking". It's a shame, too, because someone like Wicked Ajax who wants to get started with flintlocks will usually give up after experiencing a poorly designed and functioning lock. Something custom built with a Chambers or Siler lock, like those usually offered by TOTW, will always be superior to the cheaper production models IMO.
