If you search using "Tinderlock" or "Snaplock,....snapping matchlock, or Arquebus" you will get swamped in Michael's old threads and photos.

What you have, I would have said I feel for certain, is the Charleville musket, model 1766-68.

When I saw the "screwless lock, I wondered if it pre-or post dated Henry

James,

Regarding the rammer for your very nice pistol, Hickory is all right, as it looks very close to ash, which was used commonly in Europe and the UK.
