I recently picked up this rifle from Dixie. Customer service and shipping was excellent as usual. The rifle itself is made by Pedersoli for the recent reboot of Navy Arms and is marked as such. Mine was proofed in 2015. All the stats in the description are correct with the exception that the nipple is a steel musket one of 8x1.25mm thread. The rifle is blued and the blueing is a bit dull. The stock is fine grained American walnut and satin oiled. I'm ok with this, as it is supposed to be a military weapon. The trigger has a lot of sideways play, however... it breaks smoothly and cleanly with no over travel... about 2lbs. The sights are military ladder leaf with a globe front sight. Not the best and I had to put some white paint on the front sight to get a better sight picture. Accuracy is very good with 80gr of FFg and the Lyman 457121 pure lead bullet sized to .450. I recommend replacing the nipple with a Treso ampco musket nipple because of the higher pressure.
