Hi, I was looking to buy an spare sear for my Pedersoli Scout flintlock 12ga shotgun. I have two similar extra flintlock locks where all the internal parts are the same as my Scout lock except that the shotgun has a longer leg on the sear. Nobody in the USA has that sear in stock. I emailed Pedersoli on how to acquire that sear. Pedersoli told me that the sear hasn't yet been shipped to any distributor in the USA, but would send me one as a promotion. The sear was airmailed from Italy and I received it in five days. Gotta love Pedersoli!

Regards,
Richard

Hi, I got to shoot my Pedersoli 12ga SxS again today using clay birds as targets. On my first shot, a miss. I was thinking, "here we go again". However, I finally got the Pedersoli dialed in were I hit every clay bird launched thereafter. The solution was in the shot size I was using. I was using #9 shot that is pretty small. Even though there are a lot of pellets, each pellet has minimal energy compared to larger sized shot. The #9 must have been bouncing right off the clays. Using both #7.5 and #5 shot blasted the hell out of the birds. Most just showed a smoke cloud after being hit.

I love that Pedersoli, especially since I can now hit flying targets. This is an example of "never give up".

Regards,
Richard

Hi, I purchased the Pedersoli Scout Flintlock shotgun last fall:

https://www.dixiegunworks.com/index/page/product/product_id/9488/category_id/315/product_name/FS3031+PEDERSOLI+SCOUT+SHOTGUN+FLINT+12+GAUGE

Sold some .22 conversion cylinders recently and used that money to order the flintlock's percussion brother:

https://www.dixiegunworks.com/index/page/product/product_id/9486/category_id/316/product_name/PS3021+PEDERSOLI+SCOUT+SHOTGUN+PERCUSSION+12+GAUGE

I'll post some photos when the shotgun comes in.

Regards,
Richard

Richard, you might have to change your moniker to "Shotgun Richard"!

Hi, the Pedersoli Scout percussion 12ga shotgun arrived yesterday. The fit and finish is perfect and is an almost perfect match to my Pedersoli Scout flintlock 12ga shotgun. Other than being percussion, the bore of the percussion shotgun appears to be chrome plated. Can't wait for good weather to shoot the new percussion shotgun.

Regards,
Richard
