l 67.8cm. More details

The characteristic feature of the wheellock is the spinning wheel, which strikes a piece of pyrites, generating sparks. The lock can be internally tensioned by turning the square spindle a quarter turn with a separate spanner. This spanner also serves as a screwdriver and can be used to loosen the cock when replacing the pyrites.
