Mdl.1874 Sharps Rifle
Mdl.1874 Sharps Rifle

This early Sharps Buffalo Rifle ​has a great western look.​  It's got a Rocky Mountain front sight with a Buckhorn rear sight of which the right post is broken off. The double set triggers work but are a little stiff.  It's got a hair line crack in the receiver tang which is stable and solid. There's no evidence of a stock crack so the it's from over tightening the screw. This is quite common on Sharps rifles. The bore has a very good shine to it and sharp rifling.  The .45 Cal. barrel is 28" with a clear "​Old Reliable".  

Price: $3,950.00
