    Need help IDing Austrian(?) musketoon(?)

    I've just come into a firearm that I definitely need help identifying..its Austrian I believe, with a Liege proofed barrel. Unit marked.Beyond that I don't know. I've never seen one like it, and can find nothing like it online. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    What a neat little piece. Very interesting rear sight.

    I've always fancied one of those, for the finely adjustable quadrant sight.

    If the backsight block is marked up to 1000 (Schritt, not metres!) then it is the " k.k Jägerstutzen M/54".
    If the backsight block is marked up to 1200 (Schritt, not metres!) then it is the " k.k Dornstutzen M/54".

    Otherwise, about the only difference is the presence of the "dorn" = pillar. With a pillar, it must be the Dornstutzen. But, since the pillar may have been removed at a later date, the absence of a pillar does not prove that it is the Jaeger.

    Hence the need to check the scale on the backsight block!

    It looks like a Jaegerstutzen. The Dornstutzen has a longer support block beneath the sliding quadrant.

    Described in the book "Die Hand- und Faustfeuerwaffen der Habsburgischen Heere" as Variation "B" with the ramrod lying in a slot behind the ramrod pipe.

    The lockplate, dated (1)860, confirms that this is a later version. However, the ramrod pipe is mounted further back than on the example shown in the book (dated 1861). Transitional model/upgrade/repair?
