This is a very fine jaeger. Like the carving.
Did you do the decoration of the side and butt plate yourself and can you post some close ups of them?

In my opinion this is not a "coaching gun" but rather an assassin's gun, sometimes called a "poacher's gun". There is no reason for a coaching gun to have a takedown stock, but every reason for an assasin's gun to have one - to be able to hide it on your person, under a cloak or overcoat. The muzzzle of the iron barrel undoubtedly has female threads that the brass piece screws into.  Every other assassin's / poacher's gun I have ever seen had an extension barrel of perhaps a foot long that screwed on.  It is likely that the brass piece on this one was created to replace an iron extension which has become lost.

Nice looking rifle, Warren.  I especially like the treatment at the rear of the cheek piece, and the integrated carving.  My kind of gun, thanks for posting.    Best,

Black Powder Shooting / Re: Effective range of a smoothbore
« Last post by Bob Roller on Today at 05:00:46 AM »
I've never cared for any smooth bore but I would think it's useful range would be that in which a killing shot could be delivered to whatever was being shot at.I "killed" a new paint job on a 1956 Chevrolet when the occupants were stealing fancy hubcaps from a new Mercury across the street.That was a close up shot with #4 shot and a 10 gauge sxs.

You guys need to stop drooling and just send Bart a message, he's great to work with and his prices are very reasonable. It is a rock solid tool, copied from an original, and is as well built and handy as it is beautiful.

Thanks again Tim.  Appears that I need to get pin jaws and a pen mandrel or collet mandrel system.

It sure looks similar to a Joe Long, but would like to see the other side to be certain...... note the same script letters on a signed Joe Long gun/Users/pollylowe/Desktop/Screen Shot 2023-02-04 at 7.41.08 PM.png
