 Dimick Lock

The Dimick Lock

Horace Dimick was a gunmaker of top order and his guns were competition for the "plains rifle" business of Sam Hawken. His firm was established in St. Louis in 1849 and continued until his death in 1873. He was considered by many to be the highest skilled gunmaker of the day. Locks of this type were used considerably by Dimick as well as other makers from coast to coast, and were found on rifles of all calibers as well as shotguns.
