Our Assessment: This is a beautiful double rifle from Pedersoli. The name Kodiak is appropriate as the .45-70 Gov’t rifle barrels would be suitable for hunting bear, and with full loads, it’s gonna be a bear to shoot! The gun has classic styling with a case color finish on its external hammer action, browned barrels and attractive walnut stocks. The gun is in Excellent condition, showing little sign of use. It’s beautiful styling and great condition will make for a great gun for hunting or to add to a collection.
