hallo , 

  Some years ago  I have bought my wife a Pedersoli Lightning .  Now on the last match it started to lock up.

For the first time I will have to disassembly it totally .

Could someone please send me the guide to peterenjolanda@online.nl ?

 

Thank you ,

Get Roger Rapids Lightning manual and he’ll walk you through the disassembly and reassembly. Pay attention to the cartridge stop lever information. On all of my Pedersoli Lightnings that is where problems occurred and I’ll bet that’s where yours is.

Yul, clean out your mail box, trying to send you a message.

Howdy Roger Rapid and everyone else who has contributed to this most informative thread. A couple of years ago my brother drove down from Oregon and brought his Pedersoli Lightning in 45 Colt. Not a cowboy shooter, he solved most of his problems with it by refusing to load more than 5 rounds in the magazine. Still it was enough fun to shoot that my wife suggested I buy one. It arrived as a slightly used Pedersoli 

(Dixie Gun Works version) 44-40 rifle with a 24" round barrel. It now has several hundred rounds through it powered by 32 gr. of GOEX FFFg and is way more fun to shoot than my brother's Uberti. Only problem is the occasional failure to feed. I know that I need to disassemble it soon to clean it so a copy of your manual on the Pedersoli Lightnings (S/N below PL01000) would be appreciated. Thank you.

Howdy Pards, I recently acquired a Pedersoli Lightning in 44-40 and it is running as smooth as butter.

Nevertheless, I am very interested in learning more about it: can I receive a copy of Roger Rapid's manual please?

My email address is lordvezzon@yahoo.com.

 

Thank you so much!

 

See you along the trail

Here is a question for you 45 Colt Pedersoli Lightning owners. The Lightning is notorious for blowback in 45 Colt. Since I shoot 45 Schofield in my Marlins, I tried it in a couple AWA Lightnings. One I owned and one we just tried it on to check the blow back. Both of the rifles cycled the shorter round perfectly with no blowback. Has anyone here shot 45 Schofield rounds through their Pedersoli Lightning? Will a Pedersoli cycle the shorter rounds?
