Flintlock is the general term for any firearm based on the flintlock mechanism. The term may also apply to the mechanism itself. Introduced at the beginning of the 17th century, the flintlock rapidly replaced earlier firearm-ignition technologies, such as the doglock, matchlock and wheellock mechanisms. It continued to be in common use for over two centuries, replaced by percussion cap and, later, cartridge-based  systems in the early-to-mid 19th century. Although long superseded by modern firearms, flintlock weapons have enjoyed some popularity with black powder shooting enthusiasts.
