Re: An Old Jaeger?
Very interesting gun. I am surprised that it does not have a patchbox. Most Jagers do. The style of the lock indicates it is an early original percussion, not a flint conversion. It should be about a 62 cal rifled gun. Here are pictures of my early jager. It is a percussion conversion form the flint. THe bore is a transition type between smooth and rifled. The grooves are straight. It has a brass strap reinforced wooden trigger guard and a wood sliding patch box cover.
