Description

An authentic European Jaeger flintlock rifle converted to percussion, probably during its period of use.  The lock plate is unmarked, but is probably of German origins.  The rifle is brass mounted, with a walnut stock and horn endcap, at the muzzle.  The octagonal barrel is swamped with very deep rifling.  The barrel also has an unknown proof mark at its breech.  The rear barrel sight is very ornate and very much a work of art.

Overall Length: 40.40″

Barrel Length: 24.70″
