We shall see.
The prototype "Enfields" submitted to the N-SSA's SAC for approval have problems with dimensions being outside of the "tolerences/specs."
In ye Olden Daze, there used to be a Secret Double Standard in the N-SSA. Individual gunmakers were held to a far more exacting set of measurements and standards that were the commercial makers (NUG, the "Italians"). Some believe this was due to Navy Arms' founder and N-SSA Way Back member Val Forgett importing italian guns.
Some time ago, it was said that the Double Standard was gone.
We shall see what happens now, and whether that is true or not.
If not true, the new "Enfields" will be approved.
If true, Pedersoil will have to bring them within N-SSA SAC tolerances/specs in order to be approved for N-SSA use.
IMHO still, it raises more questions as to whether Pedersoli will go with turnng their backs on the smaller member number N-SSA organization, and produce them, as is, for the larger numbers and larger potential market in the reenacting community (assuming reenactors will not balk too much in paying say $1100-$1400 for them. Plus the "Foreign/European" market.

Not a real Civil War reenactor, I only portray one on boards and fora.
I do not portray a Civil War soldier, I merely interpret one.
