Black Powder Manufacturer: pedersoli
pedersoli Model: 50 cal blackpowder rifle
Review Category: Black Powder

Purchase: Black Powder I was in the market for a new muzzleloader. I have a lyman 54 cal. trade rifle that I use for deer hunting, elk, and practace with. It is extreamly accurate with round balls and buffalo rounds. I have had problems with the #11 caps falling off even after I squeeze the cap for a tighter fit. My friends all have inline smoke poles. They like them but do not have a rustic look to them. I think they look like a high power rife. Not for me. I went to cabelas in Owanata Mn, I found a nice used pedersoli loader there. I paid 300 for it.

Things I like about the pedersoli 50 cal blackpowder rifle Black Powder: 209 primer. The primer is loked in place with a flip down firing pin plate. Removable breech plug for cleaning. Antique look is a must.

What I don't like about the pedersoli 50 cal blackpowder rifle: The fiber optic sights make it look like a modern barrel (cosmetic only). The sight are nice at dusk time. I also had a prodlem with the saftey. the gun splipped threw a crack in my deer stand. when it hit the hammer witch was on saftey setting it went off shooting a hole in my jacket.

Black Powder 50 cal blackpowder rifle quality: wood stock with black barrel. Some brass features.

50 cal blackpowder rifle summary: Nice looking gun. I do like the rustic look and feel. The woodworking on me lyman trade rifle is a lot nicer.I am looking to buy a lyman in line rifle soon. The 209 primmers are a lot more reliable than #11. I have lost primers,hard to install unless you have a capper. Also they missfire. I always buy new for hunting season. My pedersoli is more expensive to shoot because of the barrel twist.It spinns to fast for round balls. Very accurate with sabot bullets witch are not leagle in Colorado.
