Just for @Pine Marten and all others who are fascinated by fancy lockwork. Trigger plate actions were a Germanic design, and if I remember correctly one of the Edinburgh gunsmiths had German ancestry, hence the trigger plate actions used in Dickson round action etc.



Edit - my initial thought was nearly right - it was Jame MacNaughton who developed the Scottish Trigger plate action - he was good friends with a German gunsmith Julius Coster. More details here About Us - James MacNaughton

Another really interesting video! This guy really knows his stuff, that's for sure. That trigger guard is bloody hideous though :eek::lol:

One of the joys of Long Covid is an inability to sleep. I have been good for a few weeks but its flared up agiain so watching YouTube is better than just lying there aching all over and feverish.

Ditto. And thanks for the video link. :tiphat:
Thanks for your thoughts. I am kind of resigned and taking the long view. I am beginning to be able to do a lot more, but I felt really fit and strong end of last week so went for a bit of a run. Slightly too much and everything kicked off again. Still its been 4 weeks since the last bout. Keep safe out the COVID-19 is not much fun.

I just watched that over my lunch break and it was fascinating, thank you, especially the forensic diagnostic of what was wrong with the wood.
