The first two photos show details of the front and rear of a Jacob Stoudenour percussion lock that is engraved with his typical "JS". A friend of mine offers high quality castings of the components of this lock for sale (he borrowed the lock from another friend to make the castings). If you are interested in purchasing castings, e-mail me for contact information. When my friend gets his website up and running, I will provide a link here. The third photo below shows a lock made from the castings. For biographical information on Jacob Stoudenour, click here.
The next photo shows a modern copy of the Stoudenour lock that is made from high quality castings, using the investment casting technique.
