ABOUT US: In 1986, American Pioneer Video was founded by Jim & Karen Wright. Their first videos were The Preservation of the American Pioneer Crafts Series. The goal of American Pioneer Video was to promote an appreciation of our American heritage and educate through an entertaining format. Creating videos which demonstrate how to recreate either the products or the lifestyle from the 18th century. From 1986 to 2018, American Pioneer Video produced thirty-eight different video projects and one book.

In 2017, Jim & Karen sold American Pioneer Video to Jason W. Gatliff, publisher of MUZZLELOADER magazine. It is our continued goal to produce high quality videos relating to the art and craft of Longrifle Culture of the 18th and early 19th centuries. We are currently scheduling future projects and anticipate releasing at least one new video per year at the annual Contemporary Longrifle Association (CLA) show in Lexington, Kentucky.


The Jaeger Flintlock Rifle Project featuring Mike Miller

Contemporary builders of muzzleloading firearms have a wide variety of quality parts to choose from when building a gun. But what do you do when the more exacting parts are not available? Mike Miller demonstrates how to modify available commercial parts to suit your particular project by building a German-style Jaeger rifle from around 1720. Mike teaches how to modify a lock and triggers, make acanthus leaf finials on the buttplate and ramrod entry pipe, make an authentic wooden trigger guard, fabricate end caps for the wooden patchbox lid, make a buffalo horn muzzle cap, and more in this double disc dvd set. Important skills for building fine rifles, Mike takes gunbuilding to the next level.

This double disc DVD set is two hours, ten minutes long of educational, entertaining and detailed information, taped in HD on location at Mike Miller’s shop in Kentucky. $29.95 + S&H
