The following excerpt is from blindkat.hegewisch.net
The Flintlock was the weapon most likely encountered in the 17th-19th century. While a few snaphaunces might have lingered, especially because of the wide use of this gun system in Scotland, it is doubtful that the Wheel-Locks would have been in use in this part of the world. The use of Wheel-Lock would have still been encountered in the South Pacific in the late 17th century, however.
The Flintlock used a doghead and frizzen similar to the Snaphaunce. The sear was enclosed in a lock plate and consisted of a tumbler which allowed the weapon to be half cocked and fully cocked. In the half cocked position the sear would drop into a deep groove which prevented the trigger from being pulled and the dog-head from dropping (a crude form of safety) . At the fully cocked position the sear dropped into a shallow groove. The sear could be pushed out of this groove by pulling the trigger. By now the frizzen and pan cover were combined into one spring loaded unit.
