Well, this will be the big gun purchase for 2009...and I guess I have LordSlashcat here at the forums to thank. When I told him I had a chance to purchase a Pedersoli Mortimer he filled me in on all the details....so it now is a foregone conclusion....It is waiting for me to figure out how I'm going to pay it off and still enjoy it before the Summer ;) .....

For those that don't know the gun, it is a Flintlock that has been responsible for winning it's fair share of match's around the globe. This is the highest finish that I've seen Pedersoli lavish on a gun...the lockworks are on a level all their own...

Reproduction of an English rifle with octagonal to round barrel. The oil finished European walnut stock is completed by a typical English styled cheek piece and checkered. Colour case hardened lock and metal parts. The Deluxe version is enriched with gold inlays and engraving on the polished steel lock and fitting, and with the name “Mortimer”

So, thanks to you enablers.... ;)

I sealed the deal today. Gonna be payin' on her for a good while. I've never seen a gun finished in bright brown before. There are wedding band rings milled into the barrel. The lockworks are simply the best. And I'll have to learn how to use that sight system. I do ok with a Flintlock out to 100 yards. I want to push this one like my handguns....long range shooting. So this is the one to try out to 250 yards :eek:

xtm,

Can't wait to give the gun it's due... ;) I believe it was purchased years ago by a collector, as it is unshot... :eek: LordSlashcat and I discussed the gun and he is of the opinion that this was always one of the Cadillac's of the Pedersoli line. Having examined the gun twice....it's a hard point to argue. If the gun shoots anywhere near as nice as it is put together, I'm going to be happy with the investment of time ~ learning how to make it sing ;)

On a aside, has anyone noticed that amazing flintlock on the Track of the Wolf...in the classifieds. The finest gun I ever handled, and the object of many a collectors desire....If I could sell both Kidneys, (perhaps a lung or two) she could be mine.....a once in a lifetime gun.

A couple of us had the chance see it, handle it, and shoot it at the last Red Neck Shoot here in Maine. Frankly, I've never handled a finer gun.....

It should have a thread of it's own here, before it's gone ;)
