The Pedersen device

I have always wanted a Pedersen device or by the proper name U.S. Pistol, Caliber .30 M1918. The standard joke between my wife and I has been we should stop at this yard sale, antique store, or gun shop because there is a Pedersen device there. This has been going on for over 30 years. I guess if you keep hoping then some day it will happen. No, I did not find one to buy.  However, I was able to photograph and shot one on this last trip. So the next couple of posts will be concerning this part of my trip. Today’s post is part one of the photo layout of the 1903A1 rifle and the Pedersen device. For every picture that I post I have another 20 with a slight angle difference. In addition to photographing it I also video it and shot it as well. Those videos will be in a later post. So here is the photo essay on the Pedersen device.

This one is with the device in the rifle
