A species of firearm formerly carried by the infantry of an army.  It was originally fired by means of a match, or matchlock, for which several mechanical appliances (including the flintlock, and finally the percussion lock) were successively substituted.  This arm has been completely superseded by the rifle, and is now only of historical interest.
