The new Pedersoli Whitworth rifle

Some good news to post: we have just started the production of the iconic long range military target rifle of the mid 19th century. Sir Joseph Whitworth, an excellent engineer experimented with various rifling methods to extend the range of the muzzle loading rifle muskets. In the 1850s he designed a small calibre fast twist hexagonal bore rifle, that started the age of long range sport shooting as well. This rifle proved extremely effective in the hands of the Confederate sharpshooters also.

Our reproduction features the original 1:20″ twist hexagonal rifling. The stock is oiled American walnut, and we are really proud of this beauty. We hope to have some range reports also soon.
