I have a Pedersoli Mortimer percussion 12ga shot gun. This isn't neither the deluxe $3,000 model or the $1495 standard model Dixie offers. This the standard model with extra fancy stripped stock. I had thought I would keep this gun for a fur trade impression I wanted to do. But I got the opportunity to purchase a mid-18th century "poachers" flintlock (for my wife) and a fancy officer's flintlock pistol....so I guess I get I got to let this beauty go.
