Handmade Lock by Yancey von Yeast

This lock was completely hand made by Yancey von Yeast.  It is loosely adapted from the original lock in the photos.  The parts were forged and filed out by the artisan.  It is for a Hudson Valley Fowler based on HVF 1 in Grinslade's book on Fowlers.  The gun will be on display at the Contemporary Longrifle Association Show in Lexington, KY in August, 2014.  The reproduction lock features a rarely seen half bridle, copied from the original.
