Get one and let us know how it works for you! From what I remember of their pricing and what I know of the Pedersoli base rifles and seeing the mods that they've done, I'd say there are other viable options to think about.

Chapuis makes a fine double for not much more money. VC is a step up from that for French rifles.

Yes I know very well VC and Chapuis cause VC is in my town and Chapuis is 40 miles from my house.
Their prices in France are not at all "cheap", I think you pay less than us ... export!
If you need a documentation I can try to get it and send it.:thumb:

Thank you for your kind offer. I don't need any thing for my Chapuis at the monment. The Chapuis sell for a retail price of $4500 USD on upward here. This price is for the 9.3X74R

If the US$ that you show means US D(ollar) then the prices there are very similar to the prices here in the USA.
Have you considered looking at a used rifle that you can shoot before you buy it. It's a good idea to do this to check regulation before purchase.
