This is one of the best Jaeger rifles
made since the 18th century. Ron Scott specializes in early

To start off, the wood is Madrone Burl
native to the Pacific Northwest. It has a beautiful swirling
pattern to the grain and this piece has the best coverage
and tightness of the pattern I have seen.
The barrel is 28.5" long and swamped. It
is made from Swedish Damascus which is made by layering
different steel powders into a pipe and then under intense
pressure and heat solidifying the powder into a solid bar.
The pattern goes all the way through the bar and is not a
pattern acid etched on the surface.
The lock is from The Rifle Shoppe and
is very nicely assembled and then engraved by Ron. The
triggers are from them as well.
The brass hardware was cast from an
original Paul Poser jaeger. Poser worked in Prague in the
early 18th century.
Comes with a very nice handmade sling
as well. The pictures will speak better than I can about
this exceptional one of a kind rifle.
Weight is 8 lbs 10 ozs. Pull is 13⅛".
