Album: 1/3 Scale Flintlock Naval Pistol

I'm making a 1/3 scale model of a Belgian naval flintlock pistol. I'm cutting the lock from 1/2" square CRS bar. The brass parts will also be cut from solid, all screws will be made from bar stock, and the springs will be forged from piano wire. At least, that's the plan.

Square hole and broach
The broach was turned and milled out of drill rod, then hardened.

Broaching a tiny square hole
I broached the hole slightly undersize, then filed to size.

Lock "assembled"
The frizzen is screwed on, but the hammer is just sitting over the freshly drilled hole in the lock plate. The small piece to the left is the beginnings of the tumbler.

Second try at the vise screw
This vise screw (on the right) is much more accurately shaped. Unfortunately, it may be only the first of several parts I'll have to re-make, starting with the frizzen. I'm hoping the lock plate will be fine.
