Black Powder Pirate Wheellock Firearms

These arrrr a friction-wheel mechanisms that caused a spark for firing a firearm. It was the first self-igniting firearm. The mechanism used a rotating steel wheel to provide ignition. The advantage of the wheellock was better resistance to rain or damp conditions than the matchlock or even flintlocks. Wheellock firearms were highly prized by pirates and sea captains. Developed around 1450, they were used alongside the matchlocks but continued to be used well into the 18th century. We are one of the very few places in the entire world that makes n' sells wheellock firearms.

NOTE: All flintlock weapon will only work with real black powder n' not with Pyrodex.  Pyrodex is a black powder substitute designed to work with percussion cap weapons.  It requires a higher temperature to ignite with a flash point of 740 degrees vs 320 degrees for black powder.  Black powder is considered an explosive because of this fact, n makes it more difficult to get due to extra safety requirements. The spark from a flint is not hot enough to light Pyrodex, which means you will get alot of misfires.
