What I had in mind is similar to the lock shown on the Joseph Whitson Sr. rifle on page 37 of the KRA book "Kentucky Rifles of the Great Smoky Mountains".

Chris,

Where there is  a huge gap, is the last type of flintlocks, with the 'V' shaped or "U' shaped pans and accompanying refinements.

Nothing is offered as a complete lock I don't think.  (No clue on how these would sell though!)

What is a day's time worth? Taylor has told me it takes him a full day's work, about 8 hours, to polish most locks to his satisfaction.

Exactly and its a PITA and after a time it starts to hurt.

They sure do work wonderfully, the ones the Mantons and their peers used. The internals were the same as the later high end percussion locks of the 1830-60s.
