The Doglock mechanism came into common use in the mid 17th century. This pistol historically used an external catch or DOG instead of the half cock mechanism that came later. Ours has an internal half cock as a precaution and so ye can safely use it at events.
These pistols were used extensively in the British, Dutch, and Danish Navy & Cavalry. Pirates and buccaneers favored them as well. The British doglock fell into disuse around 1720's, but the Swedes kept this style of lock until the 1750's.
