    How to use "Matchlock" in context?

    The matchlock was the primary firearm used during the 17th century in Europe. It was a hand-held firearm that used a stick of lit fuses to ignite a powder charge. This explosively fired a ball from the barrel, which then had to be hit by a match to ignite the powder in the barrel again and fire the weapon.

    The matchlock had a long lasting effect on the firearms industry, and was slowly replaced by the flintlock during the 18th century.
