Re: Lock cover pic's
I use a piece of soft tanned buckskin, Tater called it my diaper LOL, and it kept my lock dry the day we got about a foot of snow then turned to rain.
It really helps if you tie something in the groove between the barrel and the stock to stop the water "flow", it will channel the water right into the pan if you are not careful. I use a small piece of oiled buckskin that is tied right on the muzzle side of the lock, you can compress the soft buckskin to fill the gap.
I have seen locks that had a groove made in them to turn any water away from the pan, I think they were called a "water proof lock".
For those who fought for it, Life has a flavor the protected will never know.
