This Germanic Jaeger rifle is notable for its use of best quality parts, fine fit, and careful finish. The remarkable quality that makes this rifle a treasure is in the precise workmanship, and decoration. Quality is never a lucky accident, and gunsmith Ron Scott is well known for producing quality rifles. Trigger reach is 13-1/4" to fit today's average size shooter. Weight is 7.7 pounds.

The 29" swamped octagon barrel gives this rifle a very modest weight and makes if very handy. The swamped barrel is thickest at the breech, tapers to a narrow waist and flares slightly at the muzzle. The thick breech provides strength while the swamp reduces weight. Cut rifled in .58 caliber with seven radius grooves in a slow twist for patched round balls. The bore is mirror bright and has been well maintained. The barrel is fitted with a Germanic leaf sight with long finial. The sight has a single leaf which flips up for longer range shooting. The front sight is a brass blade fitted near to the muzzle in Germanic fashion.

The European walnut stock is dense and hard making is a excellent choice for fine inletting and raised carving. The stock is finished to a satin sheen. The Jaeger buttplate is wide and flat, for best comfort with full loads, when shooting this large bore flint rifle. The buttplate is shaped with a long comb with sweeping curves as well as undercuts. Notice that the buttplate is not perfectly centered behind the tang. Rather, it is offset from the right hand shooter's cheek. This feature is called cast-off, and it places the right hand shooter's eye directly behind the line of sight, making this gun instinctive to point and shoot for a right hand shooter.

A sliding wooden patchbox is fitted to the buttstock rifle. The door is raised and incised carved with sweeping scrolls. Compress the spring toward the lid and slide the door toward the buttplate to expose a deep cut cavity for storing flints, patches, or other shooting accessories. Raised and incised carving decorates the wrist and wraps of the front of the comb. The wrist is fitted with a large brass thumbpiece inlet flush. The lock panels taper widest at the rear in early long gun fashion. The lock panels are framed in raised and incised carving. The breech end of the barrel is stamped with a round touch mark and hand engraved Ronald Scott.

The square toe is fitted with a polished steel sling button. The forward swivel is correctly positioned to rest against the forward ramrod pipe to prevent the sling from blocking the ramrod channel when in use. The triggerguard is shaped with a long finial with a design similar to the buttplate comb. The front finial of the triggerguard is framed with a panel of raised carving that extends along the forearm, frames the ramrod entry pipe skirt and forms a raised molding along the edge of the ramrod channel. The muzzle cap and forward ramrod tip are shaped from black horn. The hidden end of the ramrod is fitted with a brass tip with 8-32 threads for loading and cleaning accessories.

The side panel is fitted with a large flat brass sideplate that fills the side panel in Germanic fashion. Raised and incised carving extends down from the front edge of the comb into the cheek. The square cheek is shaped with a molded edge. To the rear of the cheek the stock is decorated with raised and incised C scrolls. A raised molding extends from the toe to the triggerguard.

This rifle is fitted with a large round face flintlock with no pan bridle in mid-18th century style. The lock is finished to a satin gray and decorated with engraved scrolls and a decorative border. The finish has a few scattered speckles of patina from use. We recommend our 7/8" knapped English flints for best performance in this large lock. The single trigger is pinned high to provide best leverage against the sear of the lock.

Fast ignition is assured by the stainless steel vent liner, positioned well above the bottom of the pan, centered on the heat of the flash. If your flint longrifle suffers from that infamous slow whoosh-bang ignition delay, study the work of today's best gun makers, and position your vent well centered on the pan, high above the bottom, to serve as a window on the center of the flash.

This fine Jaeger rifle is very lightly used with a few minor handling marks on the stock and a few speckles of patina on the bright finished lock. It has finely carved with excellent shaping, fit, and finish. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique.
