Probably mid-18th century, featuring a 34" heavy swamped and .68 caliber rifled octagon barrel with a brass front sight and a notched rear sight with an additional folding leaf. The early banana lockplate is engraved with scroll designs throughout. The brass furniture includes early turned ferrules, a Jaeger trigger guard with double set triggers, and a buttplate with faceted tang. Mounted on the wrist is an iron protrusion for a specialized target sight, which no longer accompanies the rifle. Walnut stock of Germanic form is profusely engraved with incised foliate designs on both sides, and carved with relief moldings around the lock, ramrod channel, and along the toe. Rifle has a wooden sliding patchbox as well. CONDITION: Barrel retains a heavy brown patina with some pitting overall. Bore shows heavy wear. Lock is a good professional reconversion and does not function, needs adjustment. Cock is a replacement. Lock shows scattered areas of pitting and an overall gray patina. Brass furniture retains a pleasing dark mustard patina. Stock shows scattered marks from use and some wear. Ramrod is a contemporary replacement. A nice representative example of a Jaeger. DMG
