PEDERSOLI

FOLLOWING TEXT FROM: PEDERSOLI OFFICIAL WEBSITE Bartholomaus Joseph Kuchenreuter lived between 1782-1864 in Steinweg, near Regensburg, in Germany. He was the son of Joseph II, very well known as a highly acknowledged and skilled gunmaker and, in addition, as a very good successful black powder shooter. This explains the excellent shooting characteristics of this pistol, such as the size and shape of the grip. This splendid reproduction target pistol, whose original model was produced around 1854/1855, is certainly the “Masterpiece� of our production. Provided with single set trigger and vertically adjustable rear sight, it is the ideal pistol for the marksman. The barrel is rust brown finish colour with the writing: BARTH. IOS KUCHENREUTER and the silver inlay Kuchenreuter mark . The grained walnut stock is oil finished and all metal parts are colour case hardened. The Deluxe version is enriched with gold plating on the background of the engraving, exalting its beauty and rarity. ---TECHNICAL SPECS--- --L.300 "Kuchenreuter DeLuxe Percussion model"-- CALIBER: .38, .44 CAPACITY: Single-shot, muzzleloading OPERATION: Percussion BARREL GROOVES: 7 grooves TWIST: 380 mm (1:15 inches) for .38; 450 mm (1:18 inches) for .44 BARREL LENGHT: 285 millimetres (11.1/4 inches) OVERALL LENGHT: 425 millimetres (16.3/4 inches) WEIGHT: 1,2 Kilograms (2.65 lbs) for .38; 1,15 Kilograms (2.54 lbs) for .44 --S.300 "Kuchenreuter Standard Percussion model"-- CALIBER: .38, .44 CAPACITY: Single-shot, muzzle-loading OPERATION: Percussion BARREL GROOVES: 7 grooves TWIST: 380 mm (1:15 inches) for .38; 450 mm (1:18 inches) for .44 BARREL LENGHT: 285 millimetres (11.1/4 inches) OVERALL LENGHT: 425 millimetres (16.3/4 inches) WEIGHT: 1,2 Kilograms (2.65 lbs) for .38; 1,15 Kilograms (2.54 lbs) for .44 ---MANUFACTURER CONTACT INFO--- Davide Pedersoli & C. - Muzzleloading and cartridge replica firearms Via Artigiani, 57 25063 Gardone Val Trompia (BS) - Italy Tel.: +39 030 8915000 Fax: +39 030 8911019 URL: http://www.davide-pedersoli.com OTHER PICTURES (hi-res): http://www.davide-pedersoli.com/img/Arms/L.300.jpg http://www.davide-pedersoli.com/img/Arms/S.300.jpg
