Assembled from parts by the Rifle Shop, this German Jaeger Rifle is stocked in maple and trimmed in chiseled brass furniture cast from an antique Jaeger rifle. The rifle is offered in used condition, with a few minor handling marks in the stock. This rifle features a .54 caliber barrel with a bright well maintained bore. Trigger reach is 14" to fit today's taller size shooter. Weight is 8.8 pounds.

The heart of this Jaeger is a 31" swamped octagon .54 caliber barrel that is cut rifled with seven deep radius grooves with a 1 in 66" twist for tightly patched round ball. The swamped octagon barrel is thickest at the breech for strength, tapers to a narrow waist to reduce weight, and flares at the muzzle to align the sights. The bore is bright and ready to shoot. The barrel is finished to a smooth brown with bright spots from normal handling and use. The Jaeger style folding leaf rear sight is dovetailed 5-1/2" ahead of the breech. A browned floral pedal front sight is dovetailed 1-1/4" behind the muzzle.

Like many Jaeger style rifles the buttstock is very muscular in appearance, and shows the Germanic influence on rifle making that derives its name from the German word Jaeger, or hunter. The maple stock is finished a dark brown and shows a few minor handling marks from use. The buttplate is patterned from an antique example. The wide flat brass buttplate has a long, decorative comb with chiseled and engraved designs. The top view shows the flared tang of the breech plug. A single bolt passes through the tang and stock to engage the trigger plate below. We note there is a small repaired chip in the stock at the rear of the tang. A brass inlay decorates the top of the wrist.

When viewed from below, the wide toe can be seen fading into the lock panels. A sling button stud is mounted in the center of the buttstock. The large early brass triggerguard is retained by a pin at front, while a single screw retains the tail of the triggerguard in early long gun fashion. The bow of the triggerguard is decorated with chiseled designs, along with the finials. The tail of the browned trigger plate ends in a leaf finial. The brass ramrod entry skirt has the same cast design to match the rest of the furniture. Two octagon shaped ramrod pipes retain the tapered 7/16" hickory ramrod. The brass tip is threaded 8-32 to accept loading and cleaning accessories. A brass muzzle cap protects the end grain of the stock. A sling swivel is mounted through the forearm just ahead of the furthermost ramrod pipe. No sling is included with this rifle.

The side view shows the incised carving flowing from the trigger plate creating a molding back to the toe of the buttstock. The sliding wooden patchbox is fitted with a strong spring release on the lid. A correctly cut cavity is revealed once the door is removed. Raised carving around the ramrod entry pipe transitions into incised carving that creates a molding along the forearm. The oval cheek piece gives the shooter a comfortable place to align the sights. The simple brass sideplate is mounted with browned lock bolts. The sideplate does not have the cast chiseling that the rest of the furniture displays.

The rifle is fitted with a Germanic influenced percussion lock from the Rifle Shop. The browned lock has chiseled decorations on the hammer and plate. Made to look like a flint lock converted to percussion, evidence of the pan can be seen supporting the uniquely German style powder drum. A 1/4-28 nipple is fitted and is covered by the flip up hammer stop. This protects the percussion cap from accidental discharge. A single lever double set trigger will only fire from the set position. Due to rear trigger backlash lifting the sear, you must first set the trigger before cocking the lock. The small screw between the trigger adjusts the trigger pull in the set position.

This big bore early style German Jaeger rifle will be perfect to take on your next hunt. With a bright well maintained bore, this rifle is ready to shoot! Order it for a ten day visual inspection.
