This flinty really needs a round faced Chambers lock to really make it an English sporter !

This would be true if you were talking about a Sporter from between 1730 to 1760...When you go to 1790 to 1820 you see the half stock with a late English lock or a Durs Egg....About 10 years ago I had the privilege to have a D Egg Sporter for about amonth and too it apart and documented it....I still have the pictures and it was an amazing piece of work...And you would not believe how close the Durs Egg lock L&R makes is...But the attention to detail is incredible! It even has a safety...

The style in the picture is from the era 1800 to 1830...
