Disassembly of c1818 Collier 5 shot flintlock revolver

What an amazing day - a roaring success. My planned visit by Professor Ben Nicholson (in checkered shirt) from Chicago and one of a small team of professionals locating and researching the Collier flintlocks - significantly important as they were the a hybrid of handmade and machined flintlocks - only approximately 250 made and around 80 discovered as yet, along with

Army Noel Taylor, retired Major, Fellow NZ Soc of Gunsmiths and a personal friend of mine, spent several hours disassembling our c1818 American Collier 5 shot flintlock revolver, 1 of only possibly 3 in NZ.

 

Spent 2 hrs discussing and taking just the first screw out. Serious stuff indeed. Ben was over the moon. It is the first time he's seen a fully stripped second 'edition' Collier.
