Early & Transitional Gun 4
This Jaeger type rifle was built for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.  The elaborate relief chiseling of the brass butt plate was its focal point.  Not only is the R.M.E.F. logo worked into the design, but also a bull elk resting comfortably under a conifer completes the theme.  This Jaeger is incise carved and the carving was accentuated with brass wire and pins.  The engraving of two combatant bull elk on the sideplate on the rifle continued the theme.
