Gloss:
Although it may have come from Flanders, this is a 17th century British service musket. Weighing 19 pounds, it was made to be fired from a musket rest. The type would generally have been used in the American Colonies for garrison defense. A hook pivots to the outside of the lockplate behind the hammer as a safety device, resulting in the name "dog lock" for this early type of flintlock design.
