Jaeger Rifle
There is disagreement about why the Jaeger (pronounced Yay-gur or Jay-gur) rifle is so named. Some contend that the rifles' name has its origins in the German word for "hunter" and when the rifle came to the New World it was known as a hunter's rifle - a Jaeger rifle. There is also a Jaeger gull that lives in the northern regions of the world. It is called the hunting gull. Some stories indicate the rifle got its name because of its gull neck-shaped wrist. Although the origins of its name are uncertain, we can be sure that this rifle had great influence on American gunsmiths and builders of Pennsylvania and Kentucky rifles.

When you first look at our gunstock it might appear too heavy and unwieldy, but a carefully finished Jaeger Rifle will become one of your proudest possessions. These guns reflect a solid and functional beauty that can be appreciated centuries after their design was introduced.

The most often used wood for original stocks was European walnut, but we have seen originals that were stocked with cherry and maple, as well as walnut. The finishes on the Jaeger are varied. Some were left bright and the barrels were polished, others were blued or blacked and some were browned (rust finished).

This firearm represents the start of America's "golden age" of rifle building. It is an excellent addition to a collection and with craftsmanship and appropriate parts will be an excellent shooting rifle.
