PostSubject: My New Long Rifle   February 26th 2015, 1:33 pm

Ever since the 80's i've wanted a long rifle. I just never got around to it. Well, after selling the Hawken I figured it's a good time to do it.

Being Italian the Pedersoli is close to my heart, and I always wanted one of their guns too. So, i killed two birds with one stone. I bought the Pedersoli Frontier version. I got it in caplock, because my era is 1840-1860, and caplocks were well used by then. I also got it in .45, because I won't be hunting anything bigger than a deer, and a .45 PRB will kill any muley buck. I got the gun yesterday, and it was strange shouldering it, but i'm already used to it. Beautiful gun, and i'm impressed with the workmanship. I'm happy with it.

Yes, they don't give them away, but I got a good deal.

Awesome choice Muley, and in .45 yet! Wink :rtup

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
p.s. That in a lefty would work great for me for Pennsylvania whitetails.  A long gun in .45 is on my wish list.

I'm a lefty to Marty. The sights line up fine for me. I just ignore the cheek piece being on the wrong side.

I've never shot one of those long rifles but I do shoulder them when I make a Cabelas runs.  They are a nice quality rifle.  The fit and finish is very nice.  Maybe a little barrel heavy if your not use to it, for me that is.

Definitely barrel heavy Joe. I'm getting used to it now. Since all my shooting is offhand the heavy barrel helps it hold steady.
