The Tube-lock Gun

The next improvement in the firing lock of guns was a real invention, for it did away with the uncertain and troublesome flint and steel.

In the touch-hole of the gun a primer of fulminate powder was inserted, and when the cock, or hammer as it was now called, struck the primer the blow exploded it, and this in turn fired the powder in the barrel. The fulminate, which is a compound of fulminic acid, is violently explosive, and this was contained in a copper tube which was set in the touch-hole.

Collins, A. Frederick. Shooting, for Boys,. New York: Moffat, Yard and, 1917. Print.
