Extremely rare opportunity to own a beautiful hand carved & engraved high quality original Jeager in excellent original shootable condition.. I've been a black powder shooter for 60 years & have owned this rifle for 40 years & have won matches with it.
This is a signed German Jaeger that was custom built for a customer by the name of Arter, his name is finely engraved on an oval silver touch plate on the wrist. The barrel is signed with maker's in silver or platinum, I. Heinish in Schwerin, an affluent town in northern Germany. Austrian gunmakers are well known for their high quality craftsmanship & high strength steel, The stock, barrel, lock & double-set triggers on this rifle are in excellent original condition, this is not a restored relic....
New owner gets the loading & bore measurements, round ball mold, balls, patches & my time proven patch lube & bore cleaning recipe.
Selling under market value for $3,800 cash , same approximate price it would cost to get a comparable replica Jaeger built by a noted maker. Unlike copies originals don't depreciate, this is an investment grade firearm. Rifle should only be fired by a well experienced black powder shooter.
Not interested in any trades unless you have an nice original 1858 Remington .44 with an excellent bore.
Questions & additional photos available if your a serious buyer.
