#786- Brass Mounted JAEGER

You are witnessing the birth of an Brass  mounted JAEGER, sporting an AAAA tigered fullstock, Jack Haugh flintlock, Colerain 50 caliber swamped 38″ barrel, DST,  high tensile aluminum  ramrod and sliding wood patch box cover. The barrel is   browned, the stock is   finished dark, Eoropean style. Decoration is semi-sporting/military. This is the kind of custom rifle an Austrian JaegerCorps officer might have carried for duty in America, then had restocked in native maple because of battle damage.  

This baby is all   grown up and dressed fancy, just  needs a coming out party.  The figure in the maple is truly magnificent. The wood is had as a rock and very difficult to carve. I had to   wait until the artistic juices were really boiling before I attemped  this one.There  is some nice cast-in engraving in the brass furniture. It has  ended up a slim and pretty American lass, much less chunky than those bulky German girls.
