Just got this yesterday. It's a used Pedersoli 45-70 with a 32"'barrel and some nice wood and checkering. It's my first one with a pistol grip and it really points naturally. The bore is mint, beautiful. I also like the German silver fore end cap. I just loaded 30 rounds tonight (this is my third Purdy Sharps so I've got brass and reloading equipment already) and I'll give a range report as soon as I get to shoot it. I really like the striping on the fore end wood.

That pistol grip must make it an assault rifle.

Very nice rifle. I have a Pedersoli muzzleloader, it is a rolling block design(Remington copy). The original inline muzzleloader.

That is just a gorgeous example of firearms history. Beautiful craftsmanship and materials! Excuse my ignorance; is it an antique, or is someone still making them?

Thanks guys! GhostHorse, it's a Pedersoli replica and this one seems to be one of their better examples if I say so myself.
