History of the company Davide Pedersoli

Davide Pedersoli & Co. was founded in 1957 by Davide Pedersoli (1924-1996). They started with the manufacturing of hunting shotguns, over and under shotguns and side by side shotguns. In 1960 Davide Pedersoli & Co. started the production of muzzle loading guns, which after ten years took over as the predominant product of the company. In the 1973 the production of the traditional hunting shotguns was discontinued allowing the Company to concentrate on the production of historical muzzleloading guns and accessories plus expanding the powder flasks production which started in 1960, at the beginning of the muzzleloading phenomenon.

Currently the company keeps its family character, managed by the son of Davide Pedersoli, Pierangelo and by his brother-in-law Giovanni Gottardi.

Pedersoli product range: pistols, rifles, shotgun

Davide Pedersoli & Co. produces a comprehensive range of pistols, rifles and shotguns, as well as accessories. Since 1982 all the wood and metal components are manufactured and finished inside the Pedersoli factory departments. Finishing of the muzzle loading and breech loading guns are separate and independent departments that are able to pay attention to each specific gun's parts quality control. The polishing and the assembling departments complete the stages of the guns production. The warehouse department stocks the many thousands of semi-finished and finished parts which can quickly supply both the factory manufacturing departments as well as the dealers' and customers' needs.
