Reenactment of the battle of Marengo

Pedersoli was present on this years’s reenactment of the battle of Marengo in Italy to support the reenactors coming from all over Europe.

Battle of Marengo, (June 14, 1800), narrow victory for Napoleon Bonaparte in the War of the Second Coalition, fought on the Marengo Plain about 3 miles (5 km) southeast of Alessandria, in northern Italy, between Napoleon’s approximately 28,000 troops and some 31,000 Austrian troops under General Michael Friedrich von Melas; it resulted in the French occupation of Lombardy up to the Mincio River and secured Napoleon’s military and civilian authority in Paris.

Our compliments to all the reenactors attending Marengo’s battle fighting the tough time under the sun in the dust letting the public live the history.

Pedersoli Howdah Double Barrel .45 Colt/.410 pistol shotgun in action

Reproduction of the famous Auto & Burglar pistol produced by Ithaca Company in the 1920. Our version features rifled barrels and a special cartridge chamber enabling interchangeable use of either the .45 Long Colt caliber or 410 gauge shotshells. Manual extractors, automatic safety on the hammers complete the equipment of this unusual and fascinating pistol. A good looking model, aesthetically emphasized by the case hardened action and the walnut stock, oil finished.
