    Pedersoli 2 band enfield

    Does anyone own, or at least had in their hands the new Pedersoli 1858 enfield. According to the info on Space Cowboy's video, the drop at the heel is a little greater, that might make it just the ticket for me. If anyone has had the experience of comparing this gun with a Parker Hale, or Armi-Sport, I would greatly value your input. I can not find one of these rifles anywhere within a 200 mile radius of me, in order to
    look at/shoulder it.

    I have the new Pedersoli Enfield and it shoots very well. It fits in your shoulder better than the Euro Arms and it is as good as the early Parker Hales. I use a Rapine old style and use 42 grains of 3 F Goex. Aim at 6 and it hits dead center. One thing you will need to do is bury the front sight into the rear V sight. At a 100 I just move the rear sight up to the beginning of the ramp and level the front sight with the rear V and aim at 6.

    Dutch-
    Did you find that the land-to-land bore diameter is the .577 they have in the specs, so that a bullet sized .575 works?
    The reason for asking is that Italian bore diameters have varied all over the place - would hope Pedersoli is an exception.
    A friend new to N-SSA has one on order from Dixie so it looks like he made a good selection.

    cabelas sells both the 2 and 3 band pedersoli enfields about $100 cheaper than dixie. I have the 3 band and it shoots like a house-a-fire. personally i like 65gr 3F swiss and the moose .577 wilkinson. I have handled the 2 band pedersoli and like it just as much.

    I just bought the 2-bander from a fellow board member here. I will report back on it when I get it and shoot it.
