The Miquelet flintlock mechanism was developed by the Italians and Spanish in the 17th century. The significant breakthrough was achieved combining the striking plate and the pan cover, providing both a good spark and also protection of the prepared powder in the priming pan. This type of mechanism is the first true flintlock and dates to the 17th century.
