The Jaeger Flintlock Rifle Project, featuring Mike Miller, provides answers to contemporary builders of
muzzleloading firearms who have a wide variety of quality parts to choose from when building a gun, but don't
know what to do when the more exacting parts are not available? In the The Jaeger Flintlock Rifle Project, Mike
Miller demonstrates how to modify available commercial parts to suit your particular project by building a
German-style Jaeger rifle from around 1720. You will learn how to modify a lock and triggers, make acanthus
leaf finials on the buttplate and ramrod entry pipe, make an authentic wooden trigger guard. Also covered are
the fabrication of end caps for the wooden patchbox lid, making a buffalo horn muzzle cap, along with many of
the other important skills for building fine rifles. Mike takes gun building to the next level in a full two
hours and ten minutes in this double disc DVD set, which is full of educational, entertaining and detailed
information, recorded in HD on location at Mike’s shop in Kentucky.
Mike Miller is a contemporary master of longrifle building, and this latest video, The Jaeger Flintlock Rifle
Project, in the series from APV is a welcome addition to the knowledge base. Builders of all skill levels will
enjoy Mike’s videos, and even if you have no intention of building your own muzzleloader, these DVDs are a treat
to watch. Both to get some insight into the world of these craftspeople, and also as a means to escape the
hustle and bustle of modern life, they are very enjoyable.
