SHOT Show 2017 / New from Pedersoli. The Pedersoli catalogue features an unusual recent addition: a replica of the Auto & Burglar rifled-barrel pistol, which was manufactured in the USA at the beginning of the twentieth century.
This is a reproduction of the famous Auto & Burglar gun manufactured by Ithaca in 1920 and originally fitted with 20 and 28-calibre chambers. The original weapon was actually a small calibre double-barrelled shotgun with shortened 10 or 12.5-inch barrels, fitted with a saw handle-style grip.
A replica of the Auto & Burglar rifled-barrel pistol, presented by Pedersoli at SHOT Show 2017.
The version produced by Pedersoli features a 10-inch (256-mm) rifled barrel with 6 grooves and a pitch of 900 mm. The special chamber allows interchangeable use of 45 Long Colt and .410 calibres. Manual and automatic safety extractors on the barrels round off the features of this unusual and fascinating gun, which measures 422 mm in length and weighs 1.8 kilograms. The quality of this model is emphasised by its tortoiseshell action and its stock, made from oil-finished walnut.
