"Bud" Siler made the first Siler lock by copying a pristine Germanic style lock produced around 1770. From that first effort grew a business that continues to this day to set the standard by which all other locks are judged.

Home > Stocks and Components > Siler Locks Siler locks are a Germanic style created many years ago by Bud Siler to fill a void in the muzzleloading world. This lock line was later purchased by Jim Chambers, Inc., and soon after some needed design modifications, became one of the most sought after locks in the business. They are generally the first choice of builders world-wide because of their inherent long lasting durability, and quality of construction. They are well-suited for many rifles and pistols found in the golden age of muzzleloading which fall in the 1770 to 1790's. The original Siler lock is a copy of the Germanic style, hand-forged locks used by mid-to-late 18th century gunmakers. This style was common to 1770 to 1790 period rifles made by such well known builders as Jacob Dickert, Isaac Haines, J.P. Beck and many others. The plate measures 5 1/4" x 1" and uses 7/8" x 3/4" flints. The flintlock is completely interchangeable with its percussion version. If you are going to possibly interchange locks, always build for the percussion drum first. Then all you have to change is a touch hole liner of the same thread; preferably, of 5/16" x 24" threads for the flint. Large Siler Flint - Right Hand $175.00 Large Siler Flint - Left Hand $175.00 As percussion ignition came into use, many original flintlocks were converted to this new system. The original lock plate was retained, but the flint hammer, frizzen, and frizzen spring were replaced by a percussion hammer, drum and nipple. These large caplocks are completely interchangeable with the Siler large flintlock for those of you who want to interchange. Plate cut for 1/2" drum.

Home | Catalog | Gift Certificate | Archive | About Us | Help Home > Gun Parts > Locks > Locks Printer Friendly Page Siler large right Flint Lock, by Jim Chambers Description and PhotosDownloads One of the first correct flint locks made for scratch builders, Siler’s flint lock is our most popular. Now made in matching right hand percussion and left hand flint and percussion, for sets and doubles! This lock is modeled after a fine hand made original lock by the famous American gunmaker, Jacob Dickert. Few other American gunmakers made their own locks. He may have made and sold locks to others. We have examined a few rifles by Dickert, and none of these locks are exactly alike, nor were any exactly the same as the Siler lock. This lock captures the styling used on many American longrifles. Most flint locks were imported from England or Europe, for use by American gunmakers. A fine original “hand forged” flint lock, in Siler style, would make a very desirable prize for a gun collector. Machined from the fine parts designed by C. E. Siler, Track’s right hand Siler lock is assembled and tuned. The frizzen is hardened. Working parts are fitted as necessary for best action and minimum friction. Evidence of the lock maker’s skill is obvious in the tight fit of the pan, internal parts, and the smooth action. A fly detent allows set triggers, if desired. A pan bridle arm supports the frizzen, a feature not always found on early American flint locks. Many of our best stocks are pre-inlet for our large Siler flint and percussion locks.
