Icon37 Pedersoli P53 Enfield

I traded the Sharps I'd bought new for this one last Fall. It was manufactured the same year (2014) as the Sharps, and was/is in like new condition.

I liked the paper cartridge Sharps, but I love this more. Notice the "confetti" with each shot. That's the 1855 Enfield pattern cartridge paper separation from the bullet upon exit from the muzzle.

I cast NOE .566-578-gr Pritchett Minies complete with tapered baseplugs which closely replicate the original British and Confederate loading.


I picked up an old, very well built, handmade Early Lancaster pattern flintlock .40 cal longrifle a couple days ago and hope to make a video with it this weekend.


(Yeah I know...all that beer and cornbread makes that frock a little smaller...lol)
