Doc built Jaeger, 54 caliber Colerain barrel with round bottom rifling,
barrel is 31 inches, swamped, making the rifle very fast with superb
balance. Stock is BEAUTIFUL dense cherry, early Germanic flintlock,
Traditional DST, carved wooden patch box cover with latch, brass
furniture throughout, incised and bas relief carved in the transitional Baroque/Rococco style, the lion on the butt behind the cheek-peice
bas-relieved and the rest of the scrolling on both sides incised carved. The engraving matches the provenance of the carving with the lion motif carried through.
THIS IS WHAT THE BUYER WROTE ABOUT IT:
I admire this rifle tremendously. I’ve admired your work for quite a while! It is beyond my comprehension how anyone can inlet the ramrod pipes, trigger guard, carve the stock and engrave the brass work such as you have on this rifle. That is to say nothing of the engraving on and your signature on the barrel. You have my sincere appreciation for the quality of your work. It’s obvious this is a labor of love. Again, I certainly admire your work. You will be long and well remembered among comtemporary rifle builders.
