Don't know about that particular gun, but they usually make OK stuff.
Depending on the price, it might be a good deal.

I have one in .45.  No complaints about it at all. Reliable ignition.  Can't say too much about the accuracy, haven't shot it enough to know.

I have a 54 cal. and like it a lot. I took a deer with it 7 years ago. My GPR misfired so I plugged it with the pistol. I would jump on it if I were you.

I have two .54 Pedersoli flintlock pistols and have had no problems. Ignition is great! I think the secret for good consistent ignition for my pistols is I use a very small amount of 4F BP for primer in the flashpan
and have the primer towards the edge of the flashpan opposite of the venthole. Accuracy is pretty good too. These are Kentucky style pistols!

I think they are 3/8". I'm glad to hear you got that pistol. They are a darned good shooter. I did a 25 yard site in and had to take a little off the front site. She is dead on if I do my part. Good luck and have fun with her.
