What is a Jaeger rifle?

Jaeger” means hunter in German. The rifle used by the hunter is also called a jaeger, which a short, easily carried arm. The traditional German jaeger rifle is frequently found with scenes from the classic Greek and Roman mythologies; and Diana, the goddess of the hunt, is commonly found on these arms. These rifles can be found from plain hunting guns to the fanciest imaginable grade of workmanship and materials.

I have chosen to create a jaeger rifle for several reasons. For me, the gun is a canvas upon which I can use many kinds of decorative techniques. This is a personal challenge to learn new methods, work with new materials.
