Currently sourcing mold, sizer (?) etc from Henry Krank's in the UK. The same stuff here costs about 50% more even with postage from the UK :shock:

The Pedersoli barrels seems to slug at .578" land to land so I THINK I need the .58" oversize mold but am going to check this.

Pictures will be posted as soon as I get it which should be around the middle of next week.

Can't wait :D :D :D :D :D :D

Am not much into black powder guns, but that is a really good looking rifle, one of the
best looking that I have seen........IMHO...... :D

Pedersoli really take pride in how well they make a gun and how accurate it is historically Vern, I can confirm that having visited their factory in Italy. :D :D

It arrived this morning, as clean as a whistle with the hand book still sealed in it's plastic bag!

Just waiting for the rest of the cleaning and casting bits to arrive but will probably take some photo's in the next couple of days...... :) :)

Price from Henry Krank would be £740 / €935 / $1168. I paid €595 / £470 / $743. What a good result :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

Here are some pictures taken today. I am still waiting for the Minié mold to arrive. I also need to source a sling, probably from Peter Dyson in the UK. A bayonet would also be nice but the PRICES :loco:

I was hoping for more but when I went back to the shed some lead got trapped behind one half of the mold and I had to pull it apart to clean it out...........needed a beer after that so bugger it for today :cool: :cool:

If that happens again. Duncan, just try immersing the mould in the lead pot....not the handles though. :D

Been to the range today to give the Enfield it's first outing. What a treat it was. I was only able to shoot at 25mtrs because the 50 mtr range was full of serious .22 shooters. I will be back during the week when there will only be me there and I can check the target when I want to.

I didn't see it either, Duncan, because on my screen which was bought for my youngest when he was about 14 (turned 21 yesterday), is a bit small; but by clicking on the pic I can move a small version across the screen and see a small pic showing the loads.
Had me wondering for a while :D

Good shooting, I'd say that your rifle is capable of cutting one ragged hole at that range.
