Austrian Percussion-Cap Converted Jeager Rifle

Austrian Percussion-Cap Converted Jeager Rifle

You are considering a vintage Austrian Percussion-Cap Converted Jeager Rifle. This is a famed Austrian Jeager Rifle that has been converted into a Percussion Cap setup. It features an octagonal smoothbore barrel that measures 30-inches in length and is chambered for 62-caliber round balls. The metalwork features a nice brown patina and has no major issues spare some rust pitting toward the back of the barrel. The hammer will lock up, but it does not pass a light thumb-push test and would need strengthening to be safe. The woodwork has seen better days and is quite scratched, gouged, and dinged — but does not have any major cracks. Unusually, the musket has no markings to note.
