My father recently died and left me a sporterized 8mm Mauser, made by Paul Jaeger in the late 50's. Beautiful rifle, with a amazing trigger pull. Anyone know to this guy?? I looked at a .222 on Auction Arms going for $2500.00 and that's begining, not the reserve. This is mint and has never been fired.

I have a .22 lr. M16 made by Jaeger in Italy. It's an M16 copy. Way fun for a plinker but it's probably a different Jaeger.

The Paul Jaeger you're asking about is/was from Pennsylvania. Apparently he was originally from Germany and brought his old-world craft to this country. (Jaeger is "hunter" in German.) This guy built custom guns as well as did custom work. Some of his stuff is "high-dollar !!"

Paul Jaeger 211 Leedom St. Jenkintown, Pa Sometime in the mid ‘90s they merged (?) with Dunn’s POBox 449 1 Madison Ave Grand Junction, TN 38039 Tel901-764-6909 Fax901-764-6503 I think this happened after the death of Paul Jaeger. There is no current contact info that I can find on either. Some of the high-end dealers are getting big bucks for nice Paul Jaeger rifles
