  1. Very nice jager and photos. Thank you for posting. I am struck by some of the similarities to my jager
    While they are probably by different hands they do have a similar architecture and the treatment from the muzzleto the front thimble are very similar.

  2. That is one of the best examples I have ever seen. In amazing condition too, I would have sworn it was a contemporary.

    Thanks for sharing.
