Jukar .45?? anyone familiar with them?

A friend called and said he found 4 guns for sale and one was a flinter. He got all 4 for $180. I split the cost sight unseen and scored a 12 ga. single shot American Arms and a Jukar .45, full stock, lots of brass and no parts missing.

I'm pretty good with the BP rifles but was wondering if anyone has one, how they like it and what the twist rate is.

Have not looked at the bore yet and have not even checked to see if it's loaded. That will be done before anything else of course!!

I'm pretty sure it's basically a CVA and I know not worth a bunch. Considering a good cleaning, shining and makin it a wall hanger. Just wanna see if it's worth tryin to shoot her and maybe use it some before puttin it above the fireplace.

I thought it was a good deal.....I got a shotgun made in about 1915 in decent shape (definite wall hanger) and a neat looking flinter in great shape for $90. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Had one years ago. It was a Percussion and I won a lot of stuff with that thing. The lock was on the junky side, you had to pull the Trigger instead of squeezing, as was the stock. But, those old Spanish barrels would shot. Don`t know the twist in them but it must have been favorable to shoot roundballs.

Traditions still sells a version of them, or did until recently. Jukar was a manufacturing plant in Spain that made guns for Dixie Gun Works, CVA and some others. As Ron pa said, the barrels can be shooters.

There were two different models from Jukar. The early ones had a very cheap lock and the barrel was cheaply button rifled. (rifling was barely scratches) the later ones used a very slightly better lock with a very good barrel.

Here are the specs from 1981

I love single shot shotguns. Does yours have the lever you push down or slide over to open it?

slide over. Researched it last night on a sight and found a collector of that exact brand. His records gave me the manufacture date and another guy sent me a photo of an add for the gun for sale with pic and description. really cool.Original price $13.

Thanks Z-stutzen!!

One of the old Jukars was my first gun in .45. Pretty sure it was a 1 in 66 twist. What Ron Pa said is absoulutley true, great barrel but the rest was pretty much cheap parts. I was able to change out a later CVA lock on mine with some minor modifications and it improved the gun 100%.
