Here's a Pedersoli Bess in good condition with a couple of quirks. When I bought it, there was a weird trigger in it that had led a previous owner to cut a hole in the trigger guard. I can't imagine why he did this. I paid the $100 or so for a new Pedersoli Bess guard, but found the tang bolt no longer lined up with the threaded socket underneath the wrist escutcheon. So I Acraglassed the wrist escutcheon in place, and the trigger guard bolt hole now just needs an oval-headed wood screw installed to make it look right. As you can see, a bit of the Acraglas dripped out ono the wrist and needs cleaning up. That's not a crack. This is cosmetic stuff. The Bess already had the coarse cross pattern carved into the right side of the wrist, so this is a "using" Bess and will never be an HC showpiece. Asking $735 shipped with the bayonet.
We discussed this Acraglas fix in this thread in the smithing forum some time back:
