Great collection! Your father has a great talent bro and the fact that just hammer and chisel were the only tools used is a true testament to his skill. Got a dirt bike one birthday huh? You poor deprived kid. (Just kidding.);)

I'm going through the collection and cleaning and oiling them. Updating my pics for Insurance purposes, etc. If you guys have guns, bows, etc. make sure you take multiple pics of them for insurance and Police reports just in case there's a fire or theft. You have proof that you had the item and it will help the police locate and prove that an item is your property. Make sure you guys take close ups of the serial numbers and any distinguishing marks too. Do not place the pics in the same place where the items are located. Place them somewhere else. Maybe at a trusted friends or relatives house or a bank box, if you have one. If your house gets burned down, you loose the items plus the important pics and papers. I have copies on my PC plus two more on portable USB cards. I have the cards at two different locations. When you sell or change your items, make sure you update you inventory list and pics. My Safe is fire rated but I do live out in the country. It took 30 minutes just for a regular ambulance to show up. It might seem extreme for some here reading this but it's just an extra precaution.
Yes Speedy, The British Dog Lock was an earlier version of a Flint lock with a Safety. They would load the rifle and pull the hammer all the way back. When they were in formation getting ready to fire a volley, they would have the hammer cocked back and placed the Safety (Dog Lock) over the exposed sear and catch the back of the Hammer. As long as you had the rifle pointed down...it was safe and the gun wouldn't fire even if you pulled the trigger. Once they were ready to fire..all they had to do was to raise the rifle barrel up as they were getting ready to aim and shoot...the dog lock would fall back with gravity. Things pretty much changed to the regular flintlock, then percussion caps.
