Gun Flint - Liam

This Artifact is a Gun Flint. Gun Flint was used to sparking the gunpowder inside of a gun at the time. The way guns worked back at the time they had to barrel load the powder,bullet and other stuff needed and inside the gun was a piece of flint known as gunflint and when you would pull the trigger it would move a sparker that than made a spark when it collided with the Gunflint and then the gunpowder went boom and the force pushed the bullet out at high speeds. Gunflint was what they used in guns from the American Revolutionary war till today, yes we still use gunflint but instead of barrel loading it, we have cartridges that have all of the stuff in them.
