    Here are a pair of bullseye pistols with their Docter sights. Awhile ago on some thread someone wanted to see 'em when the sights were mounted, so here they are.
    The Benelli on top has a custom mounting plate held on with two set screws, one of the benifits of having a CNC mill in the basement. The Pardini, my kids gun, was drilled and tapped with two small flathead screws.

    jrhines,
    Do you use the ammo shown (RWS Target-Rifle) in those or any pistols? If so, do you find any difference between the "rifle" and just "target" ammo? Thanks, Quantrill

    Quantrill - The Benelli belongs to a customer, I think he uses one of the CCI versions in it. The Pardini gets fed a strict diet of the RWS T-R. We tried several different brands and this was the one that the gun liked best. Fewer malfunctions, dependable, consistant accuracy. The down side is the heavy, waxey lube on the rounds makes detail cleanup a bit more demanding than some of the other brands. We like it, buy it by the case!

    J.R.,
    I bought a brick of the "Target Rifle" while not paying attention, in fact wanting just the box that said "Target". I have been using it in an old Stevens Target Rifle but wondered how it would do in my High Standard Supermatic Citation bacause of the "rifle" connotation on the box. I tried some and it seems to do just fine but I was interested in how other folks made out using it in a pistol. Thanks for your input. I think I shall continue to use it in both rifle and pistol.

    jrhines,

    I think you missed the target, I dont see any holes in the target. (Or the bullseye for that matter) :neener:


    Nice pistols. :)

    Come on Black Majic - cut me a little slack. The target is just a background. Besides, if I wanted one with holes in the center I would have to use my kids. All my holes shy away from that X-looking thing in the middle!

    Very nice! Did Chris get new grips for the Pardini as well?

    Yup. The Pardini is sportin' a set of Rink grips. Highly recommended.

    Nice. I wanted a benelli years ago but never found one locally (pre-internet:( ). A year or so ago, I became interested in these types again and discovered the Pardini models (post-internet:p ) Had other on the "gotta get" list ahead of it. Now that Larry's Guns is the importer for Benelli's, I may take a serious look - especially since he's local.
    Can you compare performance between the two?

    Sure, although I'm a bit biased. The trigger on the Pardini is better than that of the Benelli, and the Pardini is much easier to field-strip. Balance and handling is pretty much a wash. The new Pardini SP has better iron sights than the Benelli, which has better iron sights than my old Pardini SPE.

    I had one of the black Benellis before it had all the full color, etc. Still kick myself for selling it but I lived in a one gun a month hell and needed another Colt. :cuss:
