Jaeger style rifle was built by
Phil Lewis of N.C.
The gun is
stocked on a nice piece of cherry that has a hand rubbed
oil finish. The nose cap is horn and the ramrod tip
matches. The brand new barrel is by Rice and is a
swamped 31" long in .62 caliber and has been browned.
The lock is a Davis Germanic style. The mounts are all
brass except for a nice sterling wrist inlay and a star
on the cheek. The fit of metal to wood is very well
done. There is a small chip out behind the tang. The
rear sight has a folding blade so it could be sighted in
for two different distances.
Phil has used
this rifle to hunt with but it is in very good condition
and has a brand new barrel that has not had a round
through it yet.
Overall it is an
very nice rifle and would be a fine hunting rifle being
only 8 pounds in weight.
Weight 8 lbs.
Pull is 14¾".
