Since you didn't post a price range, I have a .58 Ron Scott jaeger I would sell, but it isn't cheap. It is a sort-of copy of an original Kuchenreuter rifle.

Pictures of my jaeger are on my blog at 12/2021. www.bricestultzhisblog.blogspot.com You have to cut and paste the address in the address bar. Firefox says this site is unsafe.

Oh that is nice. I built one in 1973. And keep thinking I should make a propper brass trigger guard. I just had some arguments on the forum subject , indeed the Slovak string has been removed, my daughter in law is Slovakian I am absolutly sure Baker copied it into a military jäger look alike around 1910 and some Baker rifles had octagonal barrels , but I built mine as a jäger. Problem then no internet and few pictures but I did my best it’s .625 rifled with a twisted square rod running in a square hole They come up at holts auction around 1840 flint but updated to percussion I used an original 1810 Bess flint action. The patch box is imitation

Of course it’s 1810 not 1910

When the British army wanted rifleman for the American War of Independence they recruited German jaeger riflemen - George III was also Elector of Hanover. Following that positive experience the army wanted their own rifle regiments, and the rifle chosen was the Baker. In effect the Baker followed on from the jaeger, so if you go for a jaeger you just gone back a generation.
From an email comment by a great historian friend I always thought the baker was a military clone of a Jäger

These are are great rifles, however anything past the 1200 mark is outta my price range I was not aware these rifles commanded such sums of money. If anyone has one in that price range or even a Trade Musket in similar price range let me know.

New parts cost is about $1000. Then you get into labor, decoration, and a three year wait.. As the drag racers say: "Speed costs money. How fast do you want to go?" 😉
