A flintlock gun is a type of rifle that loads its cartridges from the front by cocking the mechanism. The trigger is placed on the left side of the firearm and a spring is used to open the slide. The spring acts to lock the cartridge in place. The firing mechanism, meanwhile, fires the cartridge into the chamber.
