PR3180 Dixie/Pedersoli M1861 Springfield Rifle-Musket Reviews
Product: PR3180 Dixie/Pedersoli M1861 Springfield Rifle-Musket PR3180  Dixie/Pedersoli M1861 Springfield Rifle-Musket

Review:

This is a very good reproduction of the M1861 and a good shooter. Using the recommended .575 Minie ball over a 60gr charge of Pyrodex RS, the battle notch produces center mass hits at 100yd, and if I raise the 300 flipup and aim low, can do the same at 200yd. I took it down a star for QC and fitting, however. The 300 flipup was loose, which I corrected with a few taps, and the second barrel band was loose as well. Since everything else is really tight, I just laid in filler underneath it and tapped it into place. I did email Pedersoli, and they were pleasant to deal with, though I ended up applying my own solutions to the problems.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
