Product: FR0838 DGW EARLY AMERICAN JAEGER FLINT RIFLE
From: Joseph Taggart

This is the walnut flintlock version of the Pedersoli Jager Rifle stamped by Dixie. The rifle I received was of top quality. The barrel was nicely finished in a satin brown rust bluing. Bore was bright and rifling strong, as expected on a new firearm. Took a .530 RB with .010 patch and also a Hornady Great Plains conical with no loading issues. The flintlock is surefire (with 3/4" English flint) and throws good sparks. The rifle shot a ragged hole at 50yds with patched RB and 90grs of Goex FFg. I wouldn't expect this with the fast twist, but for some reason it loves the roundball...
The Jager rifle is well balanced and would be perfect for woods carry. The associated sling that Dixie sells is also very nice and fits the Jager well (although I eventually went with a custom sling). I recommend the Pedersoli fiberglass rod mentioned as well to facilitate loading at the range.
