I do not, sadly, but I have a friend in Bulgaria who does. Are you looking for any details in particular, or just looking to build a thread as a pictorial database?

Hi Kubur.

That's a very nice Boyliya!!! And appears to be in nice condition. Very good.
That's one I still don't have in my collection. I've noticed they tend to bring more money than many of their other Balkan counterparts. But I'll come across one at some point.
The closest thing I have is a detached lock from the same style gun. Unfortunately, it's only in fair condition. I need to do a little work on it. The miquelet locks on these guns is an unusual design. Especially the hammer. Very thin, and takes a small flint.

Again, nice piece. Hope we see some more posted here.

Rick

Thank you Rick
I was lucky on this one, not so expensive, maybe because the descriptive was completely wrong.... Your lock looks silver plated... me too I like these flat locks...

Hi Kubur.

I too found this lock for almost nothing. The description was wrong. That's just the typical brass overlay on it.
Again, nice Boyliya. Looks very complete.
