    Were the older Parker Hale black powder marketed repros really made by Parker Hale or were they just marketed by them ?

    How is the quality on those?

    The ones made by Parker Hale in England are better than the originals as far as metalurgy ect. is concerned. Parker Hale actually borrowed the pattern pieces stored in the Tower of London before setting up the tooling, as a result they are the closest replica.

    Any I have seen command a premium price.

    Excellent replicas. The only trouble is that the patterns they choose to duplicate the modern repros on were post-Civil War pattern guns, thereby making them unsuitable without modification for Civil War re-enactors. English made Parker-Hale command a premium over the Italian repros today.

    Yeah, British made PH's were the standard for many years. I've heard that the new Pedersoli's are approximately equal in quality and (shooting) accuracy and even better in (historical) accuracy. Has anyone done a side-by-side comparison/test yet?
