  1. The metal parts are great.....the wood stock, not so much 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2022

    The description says that it's walnut......I'm gonna throw a flag on that. I just finished building a Perdersoli kit that has American Walnut stock, and this stock is nothing like that wood at all. I'm fairly certain it is Beech...but I'm not 100% on that....but it is fairly blonde looking wood, and in addition it looks like it was carved out with a dull butter knife. The inletting for all the parts is really on, but the stock down near the wrist and the cheekpiece has rough "scalloping" in it that have taken a lot of wood of to remove. I have been a woodworker and furniture builder for over 40 years, and this looks like it went thru the mill with a very dull cutter and the piece started to "chatter".......lot's more work than you think to get it right. Once it's all done it's a very nice rifle

  2. Excellent rifle kit 4 Star Review

    At first I was skeptical about the quality until I opened it up and saw the parts. Already majority of it did fit however there was a few spots that needed fixing up like the ram rod itself, and it’s place to store it on the rifle. The parts themselves did all fit, you do have to sand down the rifle and stain it yourself. Once it was built which to me only took 2-4 hours depends on what your doing. I was able to bring it to the range. Using triple 777 40 grains shooting a 500 grain 575 minor ball it was hitting just slightly high at 50 yards. All hits were dead center no windage adjustment needed. I’ve yet to see what the grouping looks like at 100 yards but checking the diameter of the bore of the rifle measured to be about 14.6mm or roughly .575 size. For best accuracy it’s best to use .1 or .2 diameter smaller bullet. If you are going to make your mine balls like me I highly suggest you get the grain weight you want but most importantly the sizer die. The reason for the slightly smaller size is for the powder to expand the skirt of the minis ball enabling it to grip the rifling. I will say this roughly around 45 grains of triple 777 I noticed a impact shift to the left however there are many factors from dirty rifle especially shooting multiple rounds to me jerking the trigger.
    Speaking of trigger the trigger was VERY HEAVY I had to grind off very carefully of where the trigger connects to the hammer. It was a easy task but be very careful of how much you remove or else your rifle may not cock at all. The trigger pull was originally 10-12 pounds which was very heavy. After the trigger job which took me only 5 minutes now is a 4-5 pound trigger pull.
