This Germanic Jaeger rifle is stocked in figured walnut and features a .58 caliber swamped barrel mated to a Chambers early Germanic flintlock. This rifle is trimmed in chiseled nickel silver furniture from The Rifle Shoppe. The forearm of the stock does have a visible repair from being broken along the grain during the build process and has a acraglas and pin repair. This rifle is in new condition with a perfect bore. Trigger reach is 13-3/8" to fit today's average size shooter. Weight is 8.9 pounds.

The 37" swamped octagon barrel gives this rifle a very modest weight and makes it 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 is ready to shoot. The barrel is fitted with a Germanic rear sight with long finial dovetailed 9-3/4" ahead of the breech. The front iron sight is dovetailed 1-1/2" behind the muzzle. We note the sights are installed opposite of how they are traditionally seen. The fire blued barrel exterior is finished in a faux damascus pattern that can be seen as the rifle is turned in the light.

The figured walnut stock is finished to a satin sheen. The nickel silver furniture is cast from an antique example by The Rifle Shoppe. Raised and incised carving decorates the wrist and wraps the front of the comb. A small amount of silver wire inlay also accents this carving. The chiseled buttplate is shaped with a long comb. We note a 2" grain separation extending on the right side of the buttstock from the buttplate near the heal. The flared tang is surrounded by raised and incised carving the flows back towards the raised lock panels. A chiseled nickel silver wrist inlay decorates the top of the wrist.

The square toe of the buttstock is accenting with a line of incised carving that extends to the rear of the triggerguard. The chiseled 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 back towards the front of the trigger plate. The bottom of the forearm is decorated with silver wire inlay. The chiseled ramrod entry pipe skirt is surrounded by raised and incised carving. The carving runs along the entire length of the ramrod channel creating a molding that terminates just behind the poured pewter forend cap. The two ramrod pipes are also chiseled nickel silver to match the entry pipe. The ramrod is fitted with a bone loading tip. The hidden end of the ramrod is fitted with a brass tip with 10-32 threads for loading and cleaning accessories.

The side panel is fitted with a large chiseled 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 has silver wire inlay decorating it and incised carving accenting the bottom. To the rear of the cheek, the stock is decorated with raised and incised C scrolls. We note this rifle has a repaired forearm that broke during the build process. A small repaired crack can be seen running through both sides of the forearm at the tip of the ramrod entry pipe. A small knot is was also repaired with epoxy filler in the forearm.

Notice the early Christians Spring flint lock, circa 1750 - 1760, by Jim Chambers. This nice flintlock was selected for correct early Germanic appearance. The lock has a long throw, and it sparks well. It is tuned to throw a shower of sparks directly into the pan. The lock has been fire blued to match the finish on the barrel. The single trigger is correctly pinned to provide a smooth release. A stainless steel vent liner is positioned in the center of the pan.

This Jaeger rifle is brand new, only having been test fired by the maker. The stock has a noted repair to the forearm that occured during the building process. With its .58 caliber bore, it will be perfect to carry on your next big game hunt! 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.
