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:

That, Duncan, is a good buy, goodbye.*







*Sorry, couldn't resist. I love English (in all its varieties!!).
In last Sunday's Sun Herald (Sydney) there was a two page spread on guns in the US, anti article of course and they had a bit to say about 'the right to bare arms'; proof readers are probably a thing of the past, Spellcheck these days.
