This Turkish ball butt pistol came with a fake lock, unless the pistol is an old one, with a good stock and a barrel still with some powder inside.
To the opposite, I saw many Turkish Ottoman pistols made for tourist market but with real old locks (miquelet). Rick posted one or two examples in the past.
I have seen many Moroccan pistols with the same thing, recent stock and old lock or recent lock and old stock...
I hope the firearms lovers will understand what I'm trying to say...
I do think that's important for the community to avoid mistakes or to do some good catchs...
