While I realise that the 18th century style of flintlock is frequently referred to as the 'true' flintlock, I can't help feeling that any gunlock in which the action of a flint on steel initiates the detonation of the charge is a flintlock of sorts... I am a bit wary this idea that there is only one 'true' sort of flintlock. That is my opinion for what it is worth. Inchiquin (talk) 12:29, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
