Pedersoli Rifle

I want to get a Long Rifle. I see Tradtions and Pedersoli on the web. I dont know anything about Pedersoli other than they are an Italian maker. Any one shoot a Pedersoli and how do you like them?

Re: Pedersoli Rifle

Back it up a tad first.

What are you looking for in a rifle? What catches your eye?

Liekwise, have you shouldered any yet? You might be surprised at what does and doesn't fit you well.

I'd give those points consideration before going any deeper into this.

Re: Pedersoli Rifle

I have hunted with a TC that I built from a kit. I like the looks of the Kentucy rifles. I do want to hunt with it. I had a CVA long gun, but I could not get it to pattern. Shots were all over the place, even on bags. Definatly a flinter.

Re: Pedersoli Rifle

For what the Pedersoli guns are selling for,for a little bit more money you could get a Barn gun built and have twice the rifle. I think I saw a nice flintlock in the classifieds.

I was thinking the same thing. Heck, there's some guns hanging from the ceiling at Dixons for barely more than the Pedersoli rifles sell for.

Re: Pedersoli Rifle

I would love to have one of the rifles you mentioned but I am now retired and have to budget. I saw Pedersoli rifles for around $800 to $900. Are the local (Pa) rifles around that price? Again I want it to be a good looker as well as a shooter. And I appreciate the guidance. Thank You and Merry Christmas

Re: Pedersoli Rifle

I saw long rifles at Dixon from local builders that were 950-1050. Obviously he had many that went higher, but rifles in that range were there.

Re: Pedersoli Rifle

I would suggest waiting till the hub-bub dies down from the season, say mid-Feb or later, and call and tell them what you're looking for. I wouldn't make that kind of drive without knowing something was there that you might want.

You could go to the 18th Century Artisan Show in Lewisburg in early Feb, too, which is a bit closer for you than Dixon's, and you'll see tons of rifles and get a chance to get hands-on and see what you really take a shine to.

If you're going to be making a big investment, my guess is you only want to do this once....best to make the most of it!
