German Jeager Powder Measure
« on: December 10, 2022, 12:54:25 PM »
Hello, I once bought a jeager rifle for my collection and was surprised to found in the patch box a nice little powder measure. The patch box also has a hole where the powder measure is located.
The second picture is a nearly copy made by myself.

That's better than cool!  How much powder does it hold. Looks to be a good 3 dram measure.(82gr.)
You made a NICE rifle.

This may weaken the “prayer hole” hypothesis. Or not. Very cool.
