Starting my initial research on a custom flinter. I want a shorter .54 cal flintlock and think I want a Jaeger. Any ideas or names of builders is appreciated.
Thanks
Dave

Dixie Gun Works offers a Pederosoli Jaeger rifle in .54 caliber. It has a 27+" barrel, and is on sale on line for $995. I think the catalog price is $1100.

Seven years ago, I built a .45 cal. Pedersoli kit sold by Dixie as their Cub Scout model, for my grandson's 12th birthday. It turned out to be a shooter. He outgrew it a couple of years ago, and now has a grownup, full-sized longrifle in .50 cal.

The lock on the Pedersoli kit was a step down from a Siler, but never gave any problems, and is still a sparker.

Good luck in your search.

Pedersoli is an ok gun but they are not quite the quality of a custom build. Allen Martin builds a fine rifle just not sure if he builds a Jaeger.

Knob Mountain has a English Rifle that takes the same barrel as a Jeager, 31" heavily swamped. He sells it as a component set but can also have it assembled for you. Rice Barrel, Chambers lock, your choice of wood. He will have a finished one on display at the Lewisburg Show in two weeks. Personally, I like it better than a German Jaeger for hunting.

The 18th Century Show is held at The Country Cupboard just north of Lewisburg. If you're traveling a long distance and need a place to stay the Best Western Country Cupboard Inn is located next door. This show was started a few years ago and it's a great way to cure cabin fever. You will find no junk at this show. It's quality all the way.

This show has 2 rooms in the rear of the Counrty Cupboard Restaurant and 2 rooms in the basement of the hotel behind it. You have to walk across the parking lot to get to each. Make sure you get a hand stamp for re-entry.
