Andrew Dolep was a very prolific and well known English gunsmith during the late 17th and early 18th centuries. A very beautiful and stylish 17th century flintlock. Great care was taken in preparing the parts before making the molds. All holes are plugged and material was added to any places that needed it. The lock was in very good condition and allowed for nice castings to be created from it.
