Summary: The description, specs and photos for the Pedersoli Kuchenreuter pistols.
Bartholomaus Joseph Kuchenreuter lived between 1782–1864 in Steinweg, near Regensburg, in Germany. He was the son of Joseph II, a well known gunmaker and black powder shooter.
Pedersoli says its Kuchenreuter reproduction target pistol, the original model of which was produced around 1854/1855, is the masterpiece of its production.

Two versions are available: standard and deluxe. The deluxe version features gold plating on the engraving’s background.
