This lock/frizzen is the factory lock on my Traditions Mountain Rifle with 1/2x5/8" French Amber Flints.


Close up of another strike to the frizzen.

I haven't really noticed that French amber flints make more sparks. The reason I use them is they last about 3x longer than the black English flints.

I am loving those pics you are doing. 

I just changed my flint to my new French Amber flints. 
I did notice a big improvement in number of sparks and 
in consistant striking. It only failed to strike once in the last 
meet.

Now, this may just be because I was working with a 
wore out flint. But, it is hard to ignore the change in 
my flint lock performance. I shot better with it than I 
ever have at the last meet and actually placed 3rd. 
That is a first for me with a flintlock. So, yeah. Big 
improvement for me with French Amber. I am likely 
to keep using them.
