We know Pedersoli make the best reproduction Western firearms the world over, but did you know they also make practical modern guns, their latest offering being the Black Widow. Using a tried and tested action, built to Pedersoli’s usual exacting standards, the Black Widow is fresh to the market and a unique product in the UK.

The Pedersoli Black Widow is a simple, hammer fired .22 rifle, suitable for small game hunting or target shooting. It’s a single shot, hammer fired gun with a 19 inch sighted barrel. There is a top rail for fitting a scope or red dot sight, and a three slot picatinny rail on the fore end for mounting a light, laser or similar.

Loading is simple, open the action with the under lever, pop a round in, close it up and cock the hammer and the gun’s ready to fire. Based on a single barreled shotgun action popular with hunters for decades, the Black Widow is a light and handy gun, and has some unique features that make it a perfect lightweight .22. It’s built with a technopolymer skeleton stock, textured so it still grips well when wet. The raised comb and pistol grip make sighting easy, and the skeletonised stock keeps the weight down to only 3.3lbs. As if that’s not enough, the stock is also drilled for eight rounds of ammunition, so you’ve always got some on hand.

In keeping with the gun’s role as a small game gun for casual shooting, simply twisting the handguard around will allow the action to pivot through more than 300°, providing a compact package for storage only 19’’ long.
