Pedersoli Kodiak Safari Express .72 SxS Double Rifle
« on: July 02, 2019, 05:43:54 AM »
Pedersoli Kodiak Safari Express .72 SxS Double Rifle for sale. I ordered this through IFG (Italian Firearms Group in Texas) directly from Italy in early 2017. These are just short of $1500 new and not the cheap version sold by Cabelas. This rifle is nothing short of both incredible and impressive to say the least, it is truly a beautiful rifle. I have only put 10-12 massive 550 grain .715 balls downrange, having never got around to develop a load to determine regulation. My plan was to use this in a bear bait station here in my home state of Alaska, however my health has dictated otherwise. Thus, I’m forced to make yet another “limited” raid on my gun safe for unplanned medical expenses. My loss is your gain and for $1175 I’ll cover the shipping anywhere in the US legal to do so. I’ll accept a USPS money order and once received, will ship via USPS parcel post insured.

Price bump to $1125 (and not a penny less with shipping included) for a red hot smokin 4th of July price.

These awesome BIG BORE double rifles are well over $1400 retail anywhere online, I’m really surprised nobody has jumped on this yet. I’ve eaten a big slice of crow pie now, after stating that my above price bump was FINAL...and will take another $25 off! ONLY because I need to raise funds soon...I’ll take $1100 and even pay the darn shipping too! It goes back in the safe, at anything less! Being in Alaska is where I take it in the shorts, as I’ll be lucky to pocket $1025 after paying $60-70 to ship it south on my dime. OK, all the guys sayin “I sure wish I had the money”...blow the cobwebs off yer wallet! Find a better deal anywhere...

Price bumped to $1050 shipping included! To all the guys sitting on the fence watching this rifle, this is now well over $400 less than retail (AND includes shipping)...it doesn’t get any better (or cheaper) than this! In researching these rifles quite a bit prior to ordering one, I found there to be quite a following of Europeans and Africans...that take Cape Buffalo, Hippo, Rhino and even Elephant with a hard cast conical launched out of this rifle. Even though the barrels are a slower twist, one gentleman in South Africa makes an 830 grain bullet designed solely for this application...and I hear they shoot quite accurately. I bought this double barreled shoulder cannon for bear baiting here in my home state of Alaska, only my health has thus far prevented me from doing so.

I cannot see from the photos whether that is a sight setup with a sight for each barrel or not.
If so, probably the best way to regulate the two barrels.
At one time, I probably knew what it looked like, but now, I just cannot recall.
I do recall having a discussion regarding the rate of twist with Mr. Pedersoli, what is it 1:48 or something?  I thought it should be much slower.  Especially for PRB.  But that is just me.
Whatever, it seems to work pretty good.

Last and FINAL price bump to $1000 (a mere grand even) with shipping anywhere in the US legal to do so! This price is an incredible value (read that as the proverbial “SMOKING DEAL”) on what is truly BIG Black Powder MEDICINE (x2)! This is a drop dead gorgeous double rifle with incredible STOPPING POWER for Dangerous BIG GAME and you’ve got that instantaneous 2nd follow up shot...as that huge charging monster slides to a STOP quite literally “at your feet”! With this rifle and in capable competent hands...it’s “Game Over”! You know you want this rifle and I know there are several guys drooling over this...AND you CAN afford it! Just blow that dust off that wallet...it doesn’t (and won’t) get any better (or cheaper) than this!!

OK, I've realized that I'm "totally giving away the ranch" here and feeling stupid for cheating myself! My price as of now, goes back to a price that I'm "comfortable with"...$1100 with me paying shipping! I've sold several black powder guns in the last few months...always having to continually lower my price, to something considerably less than "true fair market value. This price correction will NOT again change...if it sells, wonderful. If not, that's fine too. Thank you for understanding my return to "common sense" pricing.

Alright, after one month of my Pedersoli .72 Double Rifle languishing here for $1100 with shipping included...buy it today for $1000 with shipping included! That also does NOT include the ball mould, which I’m keeping...don’t ask! These are listed in Dixie’s latest sale flyer for $1,550! You can get off the fence now for a grand even.
