The builder delivered it to me this weekend. It's something I've been wanting for a long time and is sorta a retirement gift to myself. It's a short barreled flint gun I like to call my "Americanized Jeager". It's gonna make me a dandy deer thumper and I can't wait to give it a try.

Specs: 31" swamped barrel by Rice, 1-66" twist, .58 caliber
Zorn early Germanic lock, Davis single set tiggers
Red maple curly stock stained with aqua fortis
Weight is 6 1/2 pounds

Here she is

Who built it? I really like the sliding wooden patchbox lid.

Jim Parker of Warrior, AL....He's a friend and CLA artisan.

Wooden patch boxes were common to guns of that era.

Thanks guys. As you may have guessed, the American long rifle is a passion of mine.

Tomorrow, I'm headed to the range to shoot it for the first time. Hopefully, it will perform as good as it looks. I'll report back with the results.
