Wheel Lock Pistol, circa 1632
The wheel lock (or wheel-lock resp. wheel lock) is a friction-wheel mechanism which causes sparks for firing a firearm. It was the first self-igniting firearm and followed the matchlock. It’s name comes from a rotating steel wheel which provides ignition and was invented in approx. AD 1450 in Germany, it was used alongside the matchlock but was later replaced by the snaphance and the flintlock.
The original of this authentic replica dates around 1632 and was most likely used in the Thirty Years's War. It has a single steel barrel and comes with a steel wrench to tension the spring in then lock.
Our firearm replicas are intended for decoration or re-enactment. The muzzles have not been drilled, so the weapon is not functional.
A great item for any collector and an indispensable accessory for re-enactors.
