    Hello all,
    I am an enthusiast of Renaissance-era weapons and armor, and I have always especially loved the Wheellock.
    I have only seen maybe 3 or 5 on the whole internet, but something recently intriguing me are Non-firing Replica Wheellock Pistols from the 70s. Something of a souvenir, so I've heard.
    I would love such things for reenacting, but they (much less anything like it) are darn-right impossible to find.
    Can you help me?

    Discriminating general offers non furring match locks and dog locks. Sherlock’s are complex enough that no one may want to invest in making one. There is a pirate site that offers a Wheelock that’s something like $25 k.

    Pirate fashion is the name of the site on line.

    Yeah, non-firing matchlocks would be cool too, but unfortunately there's virtually no market for non-firing pre-flintlock replicas for reenactment.
