Pedersoli S225 Gibbs .45 Percussion Rifle (Second Hand)

Pedersoli S225 Gibbs .45 Percussion Rifle

 

Pedersoli S225 Gibbs .45 Percussion Rifle. The Pedersoli Gibbs long range percussion rifle is a replica of the original 1865 target rifle made by the English gunsmith, George Gibbs. His rifles competed against other custom built target rifles of the era and in the right hands it proved capable of beating the costly custom built target rifles of that time. Today, the Pedersoli Gibbs rifle has proven to be the most successful rifle of it’s type and has won most of the Gold medals in international and domestic (US) shooting matches for this type of rifle. The Pedersoli Gibbs rifle holds several NRA of America and international long range records out to 1000 yards as well as records for shorter ranges. The shooters who win with the Gibbs have offered tips and suggestions which will help you to develop accurate long range accuracy for your own Gibbs rifle and this instruction sheet is their way of welcoming new Gibbs shooters to the challenging sport of muzzle loading match competition. Because the Gibbs uses long heavy bullets of the type used in .45 cal. cartridge rifles it is capable of being used for big game hunting at ranges beyond that at which “round ball” rifles can be used.

This is a second hand rifle but in “as new” condition and has barely been shot. A beautiful rifle and comes with a superb paper patch mould by Charlie Higginbotton. It also comes with a selection of bullets from Varga Zoltan e.v. including some .443 for paper patching and some .451 cannulered bullets. An excellent buy and a considerable saving from the retail price.
