I'm going to begin documenting the locks I've picked and post them here. Since I'm a beginner, none of these will be exotic, high-end, hard-to-find locks. So hopefully this will possibly help others that may currently be at this level of picking. Please feel free to add ANY tid-bits/knowledge you may have on any of these as I post them. My hope for this thread is lots of "lock-talk". Comments, questions, tips on disassembly, assembly, picking, etc.
AMERICAN SERIES 5200 US
Application: US Military
Key-retaining, 5 pins.....3-serrated, 2-hybrids, serrated keypins
Now, tell me that's not one of the sexiest things you've seen today. lol
Occasionally, I'll include a photo of the pinstacks placed in the plug,
as this is a great way to gain some insight into a lock.
