Wanted: Dixie “Blount Co.” flintlock tumbler
« on: May 14, 2024, 05:49:24 PM »
Hello,

I’m looking for a tumbler and other lock parts for my Dixie “Blount Co.” flintlock pistol. I thought it would be a good idea to have a couple spares in the event of anything breaking! I’ve only ever seen one other lock that matches mine, but it’s worth a shot! $100-150 for a whole lock? $30-40 for a tumbler? All up for negotiation of course.

Huh never heard of a Blount Co lock from Dixie. Try Dixie Gun Works web sight.
It is best to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth and remove any and all doubt....

Unfortunately that’s a lock they no longer carry parts for. I also tried TOTW, but no luck.

Check with Mike Lea in Ohio ... I know he had several Blount Co locks in his display case ...
I bought one or 2 of these locks , half a hundred years ago ... nice little locks , I don't believe I have anything left of them ...
