I am wondering if there's a diagram out there someplace listing all parts used on muzzleloaders and their names.

I have down the terminology for modern firearms, but would very much like to memorize the parts of sidelock muzzies, as well.

Thank you,

The most comprehensive listing with photo of a ML and acc's is published in the NRA Basic Muzzleloading Rifle Hand Book. Offers close-up views as well. Full description of everything in the photos is designed to teach how to safely load, fire, clean & store your ML.

Since locks can vary widely, I suggest you get some info from commercial lock makers on that issue.

Here's a start with the parts of a precussion lock.

Josh, you can go to TOW and go through the process of "ordering" one of their "its". You will end up with a parts list.

Dixie Gun Works catalog also has lots of good info. I think they will send you one for around $5.00 .
