This Jaeger .54 caliber hunting rifle is stocked in walnut and trimmed in browned iron furniture. This rifle is not highly finished and in addition to some inletting gaps it has some casting gates that were not completely removed from the castings. Due to the shorter barrel and it's low weight, this is an ideal rifle for hunting big game in densely wooded or rugged terrain. The trigger reach on this rifle is 13-3/4" and the weight is 8.2 pounds.

The .54 caliber 28" straight octagon Colerain barrel makes this rifle feel light and handy. The bore is rifled with six round bottom grooves, and the bore is bright and has been well maintained. The muzzle is decorated with small decorative dots around the bore. Colerain rifle barrels are the favorite choice of today's best muzzle loading gun makers, Colerain's customers agree that the accuracy, easy loading, and easy cleaning are worth the cost. The barrel is finished a dark chocolate brown and appears to have a shinny varnish applied over it. The silver blade front sight is set in a brass base that is dovetailed 1-1/4" behind the muzzle. The traditional Jaeger style rear sight with flip-up leaf is dovetailed 3-1/2" ahead of the breech. The right barrel flat is lightly stamped Colerain Barrel Co. followed by a deeper stamp of the caliber .54

The iron buttplate is wide and flat for spreading the recoil when shooting full loads. The comb of the buttplate is decorated with five flats. The sliding wooden patchbox door has a small button head spring, lift the spring to open the patchbox. A deep cavity is located under the door. The door of the patchbox has a large notch, for your thumb, to help slide open the patchbox. The end of the patchbox is fitted with a darker wood and fitted flush to the iron buttplate. We note that the patchbox door slides back and forth easily and rattles side to side. The straight tang is curved to match the inlet of the walnut stock. There is a recoil chip out of the wood near the end of the tang. A large head tang bolt passes through the stock to engage the trigger plate below. The barrel is retained to the forearm with three pins. The stock has a few dings and scratches from normal handling and use.

Our bottom view shows the width of the Jaeger buttplate. A small toeplate is fitted to this rifle to prevent chips and dings to the fragile toe area. The browned triggerguard is pinned front and back. The triggerguard has a large casting gate that was not completely removed from the front finial. The buttplate and triggerguard, along with all of the iron parts, are browned to match the barrel and have the same shinny varnish applied.

A swivel button adorns the bottom of the buttstock, the casting gate was not completely removed. Forward, a sling swivel passes through the forearm just ahead of the furthermost ramrod pipe. An adjustable brown leather sling is included with this .54 caliber Jaeger rifle. The 3/8" ramrod is fitted with a brass tip and threaded to accept 10-32 loading and cleaning accessories. The ramrod is decorated with a barber pole design and passes through a browned entry pipe and two ramrod pipes that are pinned to the stock. A browned muzzle cap protects the end grain of the stock. The lock is retained by two lock bolts that pass through a browned sideplate. A beaver tail cheek piece is used on this rifle, typical of those found on European and later American rifles.

Ignition is provided by this large L&R flint lock. The lock has been browned and finished with the same varnish as the rest of the metal on the rifle. The main spring for the hammer is strong. We recommend our #FLINT-ENG-6 3/4" knapped English flints for best performance in this lock. The double lever double set triggers are properly adjusted to fire from the set, or unset position. You may set the triggers before, or after cocking the lock. Adjust the screw between the two triggers, inboard to reduce set trigger release pressure, our outboard to require a stronger pressure. The set trigger can provide very light release, perhaps an ounce or two, for accurate aimed shooting during pleasant weather.

Fast ignition is assured by the 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. The vent liner appears to be centered in a larger bushing installed in the barrel wall.
