Build Track's
Germanic Jaeger rifle parts set,
easy to assemble, 31" swamped barrel,
traditional brass, or iron trim,
optional pre-inlet sliding wood patchbox

Build our Germanic Jaeger rifle parts set, pre-inlet stocks are available with a pre-inlet sliding wood patchbox. This Jaeger rifle is stocked in maple and trimmed in brass furniture, burnished to a smooth finish. This view of the butt end shows the large wooden patchbox, retained by a steel spring finger latch at rear center. The lid is carved with a simple decorative pattern.

Notice the large open bow of the triggerguard, allowing easy access to the Jaeger style double set trigger, with straight rear trigger. This is classic Jaeger styling. This rifle by Harold Stansfield features a alternate triggerguard than in our suggested list of parts.

Track's Germanic Jaeger stock is designed to accept Colerain's or Rice's Jaeger pattern barrel. Our 31" swamped barrel is modeled after barrels used on German, Austrian and Swiss Jaeger (hunting) rifles, the type of rifle first made by the European gunmakers who emigrated to America.

Our pre-inlet Jaeger stocks are inlet for this barrel. Our price includes the flint breech plug, which is installed. Our Jaeger barrel has a 1.125" breech, .890" waist, 1.020" muzzle. Offered in .50, .54, .58, and .62 caliber.

Colerain barrels are cut rifled with fancy radius groove rifling, in these correct twist rates for round balls:

  • 1 turn in 56 inch twist, in calibers .50 or .54
  • 1 turn in 66 inch twist, in calibers .58 or .62
  • Each barrel has 6 lands and grooves
  • Radius groove rifling

Colerain rifle barrels are the favorite choice of today's best muzzle loading gun makers, because knowledgeable shooters demand Colerain's accuracy, inside and outside. Founded by two entrepreneurs, Scott Keller and Scott Kelly were tutored by Bob Paris, the famous rifle barrel maker who was first to perfect the technique for production of correct swamped barrels.

Colerain rifle barrels are drilled from solid steel, cut rifled .012" to .016" deep depending on caliber, with six "round bottom" grooves. Called "radius groove rifling", Colerain eliminates the sharp inside corner that accumulates fouling. Radius groove rifling cutters are a bit more expensive to make, but Colerain's customers agree that the accuracy, easy loading, and easy cleaning are worth the cost.

Colerain barrels are precisely profiled to fit our pre-inlet stocks, making the barrel a snap fit in our pre-inlet stock, after squaring the inside corners of our inletting, at the breech. This is a great labor saving advantage.

Rice Muzzle Loading Rifle Barrels cost a bit more than other barrels, due to the extra attention given to the bore and surfaces. All bores are reamed, rifled, and "ball burnished" to a mirror finish, with a more uniform bore diameter than can be achieved with reaming alone. Match quality, no break-in period, no hand lapping is required. This barrel will shoot accurately from the very first shot.

Our pre-inlet Jaeger stocks are inlet for this barrel. Our price includes the flint breech plug, which is installed. Our Jaeger barrel has a 1.125" breech, .890" waist, 1.020" muzzle.

Cut Rifling Specifications:

  • Each barrel has 7 lands and grooves for .50, .54, .58, and .62 caliber.
  • Grooves cut .016" deep, with round bottom rifling.
  • Twist is 1 turn in 66 inches for 50, .54, .58, and .62 caliber.
  • Rice barrels do not require lapping or extensive shooting to break in
  • 60 degree lathe cut and polished crown.

Rice Muzzle Loading Rifle Barrels are set between centers and milled octagonal, insuring a centered bore, concentric with the exterior, with no "run-out". Each barrel is stress relieved in an atmosphere controlled electric furnace, to eliminate work hardening or barrel warp, and to dampen harmonic vibrations or barrel whip.

After the rifling has been cut, each bore is "ball burnished". A carbide bore-sizing die is pulled through the barrel, to insure bore dimension uniformity, eliminating any tight or loose spots inside the barrel. This critical procedure leaves the top of the lands smooth and polished, equaling the traditional lead lapping procedure. Rice barrels are Match grade quality, with bench rest capability. Rice barrels do not require lapping or extensive shooting to break-in.

Rice Muzzle Loading Rifle Barrels are premium quality barrels in every sense! A small maker's trade mark, and caliber mark, is stamped near the breech, on the bottom of each barrel.

Rice Muzzle Loading Rifle Barrels include a fitted and indexed flared tang plug, threaded to an inside depth of .500". We can quickly install underlugs and sights, at small extra cost. See our gunsmithing service options. Allow three to seven days shop time, when you choose optional labor.

Our Jaeger rifle stock is fully shaped and pre-inlet in plain maple, fancy maple, extra fancy maple, and plain walnut. Precision cut for a swamped 31" Jaeger barrel, drilled full depth for a 3/8" ramrod, and pre-inlet for our Jaeger flint lock, and our "acanthus leaf" buttplate. Triggerplate is pre-inlet for R.E. Davis Jaeger double lever double set triggers. This stock is shaped from the lock panels back, and features a bulbous swell behind the ramrod entry pipe, typical of rifles from this period.

We offer stocks with or without a sliding wood patchbox. The dovetail sliding wooden patchbox lid is fitted. Reduce the oversize lid to the patchbox shape you prefer. Trigger reach is about 12-3/4" with 3-1/2" drop from the line of sights. Butt end is 4-1/2" high, 1-15/16" wide, pre-cut for our buttplate with asymmetrical comb.

Our Germanic Jaeger rifle furniture; acanthus leaf buttplate, sideplate, triggerguard, and 3/8" bulbous ramrod pipes, offered in wax cast brass or iron (steel). Offered with R.E. Davis double set triggers, which may be fired set or unset when tuned correctly. Correct unplated screws and pins are included, as well as a full scale blue-print of our Jaeger rifle. Swivels are included, but may be omitted by your choice.

Our #PB-RK-WOOD-D This 3-11/16" long lever is modeled after originals used on German Jaegers and early Colonial era longrifles, with sliding wooden patchboxes. This simple, clever, reliable latch mechanism is the choice of today's best longrifle builders, used on fine longrifles. The large knob, at rear, is notched to engaged the buttplate. It must be lifted to unlatch the sliding lid. The end is drilled for mounting with a screw.

Barrel underlugs are machined from solid steel, and will need to be dovetailed to the barrel. Both front sight and rear sights are available in either brass or iron. Our gunsmith can install lugs and sights, at small extra cost.

Used on a fancy Jaeger hunting rifle, the comb of this buttplate is asymmetric, in shape of an acanthus leaf, a popular baroque motif. Polish the comb and engrave it with baroque or rococo shells, scrolls or foliage. A few simple lines are typical of early American folk art engraving.

This triggerguard has a Baroque floral finial inspired by the famous French Fleur-de-lis motif. The large open bow is a perfect match for our #TR-Jaeger double set trigger with straight flat rear trigger. Jaeger rifle triggerguards were commonly attached with screws, especially at the rear.

This nice large flint lock is distinctly "Germanic" style for use on Jaeger hunting rifles. This lock is made for Track by R. E. Davis and Company. We stock all the spare parts should you ever require them.

Larger than Siler's large lock, this lock is an earlier and more decorative design. The frizzen spring is filed to a fancy shape, very handsome, retained by a hidden blind screw. Crisp flats on the integral pan mimic and amplify the octagon theme of the barrels used on such guns. This pan has no barrel arm to support the frizzen pivot screw. Instead, a massive shouldered pivot screw supports the frizzen, which tightly fits the pan.

This is the so-called "banana" lock plate design, because the plate curves gracefully. Such architecture made the lock flow with the lock panels toward the wrist. Later locks tend to be more straight.

Fitted with a fly detent, this lock works equally well with set or plain triggers. The big mainspring flexes over its entire length.

The lock is offered with two styles of flint cocks. The #LOCK-JAEGER-C features the new Germanic cock. This lock is made for Track, by the R. E. Davis Company. Either lock can be used with the pre-inlet stock.

Our parts are sold with a flash hole liner, often called a vent, vent liner, or touch-hole liner in 1/4-28 thread. We also offer the Jim Chambers White Lightnin' vent as a option. The special 1/4-32 fine threads allow an extra large concave cavity inside, for use on 13/16" to 1" octagon barrels. Made in the USA, stainless steel, with removable lug for easy installation. Order our #TAP-1/4-32 tap and tap drill, to install 1/4-32 vents.

Concave inside, the White Lightnin' vent liner brings the main powder charge very close to the incandescent heat of the priming flash. Position the vent on the center of the pan, slightly above the pan to frizzen joint, sometimes called the "sunset" position. Covered by the frizzen when closed, the hole is a window centered on the heat of your priming flash, for instant ignition, without the whoosh-bang delay, seen in many flint guns.

Typically only the better quality London made guns were factory fitted with vent liners, but nearly all flint guns were later fitted with vent liners, after the vent hole in the barrel became worn from flash erosion, corrosion, or the aggressive use of a vent pick.

The 31" Colerain or Rice barrel includes a fitted flared tang breech plug. Our gunsmith can install the under-lugs, including one for the front swivel (4 LABOR-US), front and rear sight (2 LABOR-DS) at small extra cost, with prompt delivery.

#LABOR-DS: When you buy the sights from us, we will remove any burrs, gates and parting lines, and hand fit the sight to the dovetail slot, ready for you to finish and use. Many of our rear sights are cast with an oversize base, to allow these to fill oversize slots. It is wise to allow us to trim these to a standard size before installation in a new barrel.

Front sight slots are centered 1.5" from muzzle, unless your clearly specify another location. Do not embed special instructions within lengthy text of a letter. Place special instructions immediately after your written order for that item, or in the comment field of our on-line order form.

Rear sight slots are centered 8.5" from the breech end of the barrel (not including plug), unless your clearly specify another location. Do not embed special instructions within lengthy text of a letter. Place special instructions immediately after your written order for that item, or in the comment field of our on-line order form.

#LABOR-UL: When you buy the lugs from us, we will remove any burrs, and hand fit the sight to the dovetail slot, ready for you to finish and use. Allow our gunsmith to determine the best location for lug. The four lugs include one for the front swivel. If you are omitting the swivels, only three are required.

#BOOK-RAL: We strongly recommend Recreating the American Longrifle, by William Buchele. The late William Buchele was recognized as a true master longrifle maker. But his greatest contribution to muzzle loading must be this book. He shares the step-by-step details of his craft. His work has been enhanced by the editors. This book does not assume that the reader is an expert stock maker, but begins with illustrated explanations of the basic concepts. Buchele shows several alternate approaches to most tasks. This newly revised fifth edition includes full scale plans for a carved flint longrifle, and fullstock flint pistol. Over 250 photos and drawings, within 176 pages, 8-1/2 x 11" format, soft cover.

#DVD-BML: Building Muzzle-Loaders VHS video with rifle maker James Turpin. Rifle maker James Turpin takes you start to finish on building a quality Muzzle-Loading flint rifle. Designed for the beginning to intermediate builder. DVD format, 142 Minutes.

#DVD-BE: The Gunsmith's Apprentice Series Presents Beginning Engraving, taught by gunmaker Jack Brooks. With this video you can learn to engrave in the manner and style of the original masters. In this presentation the nationally known traditional longrifle builder Jack Brooks teaches the viewer the essentials of chasing, pushing & wriggle engraving. Beginning with the basic tools, Jack shows the sharpening and heat treating of both square and chisel point engraving tools, and demonstrates the techniques used by period American gunsmiths to decorate their firearms. In addition, the engraving of several original 18th and 19th century longrifles is examined in detail. Over 70 minutes long. VHS format.
