Short answer. No.

L&R makes a number of period correct locks depending on the build. All the quality that goes into any of them is present within the RPL.

Given the inlet is already positioned, if you attempt a different lock you will end up with inlet issues with both the lock plate size/shape and possibly even the trigger mechanism. More headache than would be gained.

Re: l&r lock

I have a L&R lock on one of my renegades, and while it has some nice features such as the frizzen to pan fit and a roller on the end of the frizzen that contacts the frizzen spring, I don't think it is any more reliable than my original TC lock and I definately get better flint life from the TC lock. Don't take this to be a complaint about L&R it is a nice lock and I don't regret the purchase, just don't want you to be disapointed if you decide to buy.

Just my experience.

I did complain to L&R about poor flint life and they had me send it back and they changed something and whatever they did improved the flint life some.

Re: l&r lock

Hey Oak,

RMC Sports is selling a few L&R RPLs on Gunbroker for $120.00 shipped, @ $35-40 cheaper than the going rate. Do a search for "L & R RPL".

Re: l&r lock

They typically come in the white, and people rust brown or blue then.

L&R will do the blueing or browning if you order from them. Heres a link of one of the ones on GB that is blued to see what it looks like.

Blued L&R Lock



Here is one they browned using Laurel Mt. Forge Browning Regent.
