Antique Firearms

FASCINATION WITH ANTIQUE FIREARMS: This is not your ordinary key. This one doubles as a flintlock-style gun. Flintlocks refer to any firearm based on the flintlock mechanism, or an old-fashioned type of gun fired by a spark from a flint. Occasionally, key guns will appear at auction . . . some dating back to the 1600’s. One has to wonder if these key guns inspired the expression “lock, stock and barrel.” Antique weaponry from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War is on display and for sale (with papers of authenticity) at The Armory. The Shop is open daily from 11 to 4 daily.
