Book: Lambert M. Surhone «Snaplock»

Серия: "-"
Внимание! A Snaplock is a particular type of mechanism for firing a gun weapon's propellant by means of sparks produced when a spring-powered cock strikes a flint down on to a piece of hardened steel. The snaplock is therefore similar to the snaphaunce (sometimes classed as an advanced type of snaplock) and the later flintlock. In all snaplocks, the flint is held in a clamp at the end of a bent lever called the cock. When the gun is cocked, the cock is held back, against the pressure of a spring, by a catch which is part of the trigger mechanism. When the trigger is pulled, the catch is released and the spring moves the cock rapidly forwards. The flint strikes a curved plate of hardened steel, called the steel. The flint strikes from the steel a shower of white hot steel shavings which fall towards the priming powder held in the flash pan. The flash from the pan's ignited primer travels (unless there is only a flash in the pan ) through the touch hole into the firing chamber at the rear of the barrel, and ignites the main charge of gunpowder.
