Hey, I am fairly new to flintlocks, I have killed deer before with them but always borrowed! I bought a batch of guns and Iím them was a Thompson center hawken.. itís a percussion and wanted to change it to flintlock.. I have a screw where the touch hole would be but idk if I can just buy a flint mechanism or is there much more to it than that?! Thanks

I think it's possible, but there will probably be a bit of inlet work to the mortise.  Give L&R Locks a call tomorrow ...
