G'day All,

I am new to this forum, but not to muzzle-loading having caught the bug back in the 1980's.

I am hoping someone can help me, I have a custom made .61 cal Jaeger rifle and I am trying to identify the maker of the lock. Unfortunately my friend from New Zealand who made the rifle for me passed away some years ago so I cannot ask hem. I have attached a photo of the lock, the only markings on it is a D in a circle stamped on the back of the lock, just above the mainspring. I did not take a photo of the back as it is quite hard to see.

I would be most grateful for any help.
Cheers

Jaeger Lock

It appears to be an R.E. Davis jaeger lock from what I can tell. I'm often wrong but the Davis jaeger lock looks very much like your lock. It might be a custom lock. If so, I'm at a loss.

And welcome to the campfire, Sgt 73rd Regt.

Thanks very much Hanshi!, I know that it is not a custom lock and I know that my mate in NZ liked R.E. Davis locks. Just wanted to lay in a spare frizzen and frizzen spring, just in case.

Cheers

Hiya! Hanshi & Sgt!

You are correct, Hanshi, that is a Davis lock. His id touch mark is a D inside of a circle, so getting the spare parts should be no problem. You can go to his web page and send them a message with photo's of both sides of the lock and an order for the parts wanted.

Hope this helps!

Regards, xfox
