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.

Two muzzle-loading firearms – the Cook Underhammer pistol and the Lorenz Type II rifle – and the breech loading Sharps Little Betsy rifle in .357 Magnum caliber: here are some products from the Italian manufacturer that are interesting not just from a technical viewpoint, but also from a historical perspective. Let's learn more about them.
With the new flintlock rifle, the Italian manufacturer Pedersoli launches a muzzleloader that is slightly longer than a standard Jäger model. This is not only intended to improve accuracy for target shooters, but also to recall a time when the German hunting rifle became the godfather of a new type of firearm in the USA. Read the details here.

We field-tested the the Premium version of the Pedersoli 1886/71 lever-action rifle in .45/70 Government caliber. An extraordinary all-round lever gun, especially for all forms of wild boar hunting – but not only.
A beautiful muzzle-loading revolver that revives, improving it, the Remington 1858 Army in .44 caliber, perhaps the only wheel gun from the American Civil War that was able to compete with Colt's models.
