Appears to be a percussion lock.

Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?

It is a good representation of many locks seen on generic American muzzle loaders.A gunmakers lock.
I recently cobbled one together from left over bits and pieces for a friend and it was very similar to the
one seen on the Archie Peterson J&S Hawken seen in Bob Woodfill's Hawken book.50 years ago I made one
for Tom Dawson.My recent one has a better bridle with one screw and a pin to stabilize it.

For better details on a lock or a firearm, take the photo outside on an overcast day with no sun. It will greatly help with identification, especially this one.
I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.
