Davide Pedersoli releases iconic Boarbuster family

Loading Lever with Interchangeable "Loop"

Davide Pedersoli has developed and patented a new loading lever, which has been designed to enable interchange of the ordinary lever loop with one having larger dimensions. This is easily achieved by the user, without special tools and has been specifically designed for users who wear protective gloves. The upper part of the lever remains fitted to the rifle mechanism, while the lower loop section of the lever can be removed and replaced, keeping the mechanism precise and solid as you find in the traditional lever.

Stock and Forend protected by Silicon Grip

When the rifle is equipped with a walnut stock, the Davide Pedersoli team apply an innovative product to the surface called "Silicon Grip", which is almost invisible, yet still shows the natural beauty of the walnut. This special product offers a warmer touch and a firm grip. The protective film is waterproof and scratch resistant in a superior manner than normal camo films on the market. The firm grip effect increases with humidity or when the user’s hands sweat.

Frame drilled and tapped to fit the scope at the left side.

To avoid limiting the use of optics with normal focus, imposed by the mechanical characteristics of the 86/71 model, Davide Pedersoli has developed a special Picatinny base which can be fitted to the left side of the frame, the displacement is 4cm/1.778" from the central axis of the barrel, enabling the fitting of most optics available on the market, allowing ideal extraction of the shells. 

The frame of all the Boarbuster models have been drilled and tapped for the scope base.
