Armi Sport Le Page in .45

Postby Dutch Mosin » Thu Mar 14, 2013 3:30 pm

Here's a picture of the pistol I bought several months ago.
It's a Le Page ML pistol manufactured by Armi Sport in Caliber .45.
I will pick it up in Germany next week.
I will post better pictures when I'm back and soon after that some range reports.

Met vriendelijke groet,

That's right Duncan.
I'm very eager to take this pistol to the range.
Ever since I bought the Hawken Woodsman I’m hooked.
I get the feeling that this will not be my last muzzle loader. :D

My lucky day.............. :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

I now own this Le Page Target Standard Flintlock pistol along with some bullets and a mould.
It is a Davide Pedersoli, made in 1994 by the looks of the proof mark but I can't make it out for certain so have e.mailed them for confirmation.

I hope to shoot it on Wednesday Martin. I spent this afternoon making a loading stand for it.





I think it needs a slight mod to hold the pistol in the vertical more securely so further pics to come when I have done it.

Good idea Duncan. Reminded me of one I built for revolvers years ago. Took me a while to find it but I took a few snaps to show what it's like.

The LePage won't fit on it at all.
